My Strategies For The Top Social Media Traffic
Tweets That Go Viral On Twitter
Let’s start this with what going viral means. In Internet Marketing it can be a video clip, eBook, report, blog post, etc., that gains huge popularity and is spread quickly, like a virus. How it is spread is through social media and one very successful way is through Twitter.
What that means to you as a marketer is that instead of just hoping and praying for your brand, or report, or article to go viral, you can use various methods to help it along. In many ways, Twitter is like the perfect storm… it’s riding a huge wave of popularity right now, Tweeters know what they like and aren’t afraid to tell people, it’s easy for Tweeters to pass on information, and it doesn’t cost you a dime – only a good product and some well-placed tweets with a link to it.
Let’s assume you have a brilliant report you’ve just written and it’s free for anyone. Inside the report are your affiliate links to other products or at the end you point to your even more brilliant product. You want this report to go viral and to get in as many hands as possible for obvious reasons.
Try using a call to action in your tweet about your report.
This can be as simple as asking people to re-tweet (RT) your tweet. Just make sure your tweet is around 130 characters rather than the 140 to leave room for your @name to go at the beginning when someone re-tweets it.
The call to action can be other requests such as “Which do you like better…?” “Help me get 20 comments on my blog post…” “What do you think about…?” “Pls check this out…” You’re asking people to take some sort of action, which includes having them click the link you’ve provided in the tweet.
Consider making your tweet off-the-wall or a little outrageous to get noticed. “This won’t help you get into your skinny jeans, but it could help you grow your customer base…” or “On the way to the bathroom I came up with a fantastic idea for a great destination wedding package…”
If you retweet other peoples’ tweets, they’re likely to return the favor. You can hope they will, or if you’ve developed a rapport you could ask them. People like to be nice and retweeting is an easy way to do that. Of course, you shouldn’t be retweeting just to get on a marketer’s good side, you RT because you like what the original tweeter had to say.
When you’re putting a tweet out there and asking someone, anyone, to retweet it, keep in mind that people come to Twitter at different times of day. It’s okay to do your tweet a few times in a day (and changing the wording each time) to get exposure to different people. Make sure you are doing 5-10 tweets in between though, so you don’t come across as a pushy person or a spammer.
Using Twitter is a great way to help your brand, blog post, report, video clip, etc. to go viral. So be sure to ask for the retweet, make your tweet interesting, and give something of value.
Traffic Generation With Forum Marketing
It’s no secret that forum marketing can bring qualified and buying traffic to your website. In this article, I’m going to cover some of the important reasons forum marketing should be a part of your business marketing plans.
With forum marketing, you can narrow your marketing to the exact customer you’re looking for. As you probably know, there is a forum for most anything topic you can think of. This very fact gives you the opportunity to pull from pools of potential customers.
Find the forums most related to your product or service and you’ll have access to some of the best traffic you can imagine. These people are on the forum because they are interested, and even passionate about its given topic. You couldn’t find a more targeted group of people, all in one place.
Using the search engines with your niche or market keyword followed by “forum” should yield plenty of results to find your new customers.
One of the biggest hurdles to getting your future customers to do business with you is earning their trust. Most people are hesitant in purchasing from someone they don’t know. If they don’t know you, they probably won’t trust you, which means they are less likely to take the action you’re looking for.
With forums, you can show you are a real person and with your postings, they will get to know you; at least on some level. When we get to know someone we start to trust them. Even better, with trust you’ll also enjoy higher sales or lead generation conversions. You’ll sell more products or services and obtain more opt-ins.
Once you have visitor trust you’ll see better returns even when your sales process is less than properly tuned. I’ve seen it happen time and time again, a marketer gets known and trusted and people buy without reading the sales copy. Believe me, it happens. It could happen for you.
Shows your Personality
Posting on forums allows you to show people your personality, good or bad, and when people get to know and like you they will be more likely to look at what you’re promoting. I am of the thought that personality can be a huge selling factor. Not to mention, it can also be entertaining, which is what many of us want. Why do you think there are so many reality television shows? And why they are so popular? They are entertaining.
One last important tip is to make sure you market on forums that actually have traffic. There are so many dead or dying forums on the internet that are not worth wasting your time because you don’t get a return for your effort. Forums seem like a great idea for their owners in the beginning, until they find out how time consuming they are, and many are left to sit idle.
Also remember to check recent posts on the forum you’re looking to using for your marketing. While some forums appear to have an audience, sometimes they are just filled with spammers creating back links for SEO purposes. A quick check of posts will tell you if it’s worth it or not.
3 Easy Facebook Traffic Tips
With millions of users visiting this social whale, there’s plenty of traffic to go around and you’re only a few short key strokes away from getting your share.
Make It Visual
It’s a well know fact that humans tend to be more visual by nature. Given this fact, your content is more likely to spread or go viral if it is of a visual nature. I’m talking about interesting images, or if possible video content. Video is king when it comes to content, so why not take advantage of it?
Pictures or images can draw interest as well. Here’s a perfect example; some time back I saw a Facebook post that had pictures of outdoor furniture made from wood pallets. Actually my wife was the one that brought it to my attention. They were very cool and an amazing use of something most people throw away.
But these pictures spread quickly, everyone I know liked them. I don’t remember the exact number of likes they received, but I know it was A LOT. The more interesting thing is that, the post lead to a book for sale on Amazon on the subject of, well I think you can guess. I am also sure they sold plenty of copies and I’m sure they are still getting sales. Not only can content go viral, it can stay viral for a long time, which means long term traffic.
Make It Interesting
Although I’ve touched on this earlier, it’s important to post content that is interesting. I know this seems like common sense, but it’s important enough that it bears repeating. You need to give them a reason to want to share your content. After all, who’s going to share boring posts? Who’s going to click the “like” button on boring posts? Also, interesting can create buzz about you posts.
Don’t be afraid to promote
Now I’m not saying you need to run to the book and spam up the place. That won’t get you very far. A better tactic is the occasional promo, and even better if you can weave that promo into your content. That way it will look more natural. I am not saying to trick users; I am saying to be more subtle or tactful with your promotions.
The whole reason I bring this up is because it “seems” most marketers go from one end o the other on the promotional scale. They are either spam machines (which no one “likes”), or they don’t want to bother people and they don’t promote at all. You just need to find a middle ground and try to make it part of your content. So they want to find you or know more about you or your business, instead of trying to cram it down their throats.
That should get you started on the right track. Of course there are more ways to get traffic from Facebook and other social networks…
3 Simple Pinterest Traffic Tricks
You’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard of the social site called Pinterest. It has become one of the fastest growing social and sharing sites to hit the net.
In a nutshell, this social network is a tool for sharing, collecting things people love in an interesting and organized way. Guess you could say it’s a, “Hey I like this! And I’m telling everyone about it.”. And it’s been working like gangbusters. When some one shares their love of something, it is called a “pin”. Hence the name of the site.
With millions of users and growing daily, the question is, how can you grab your fair share of visitors from this social giant.
Statistics show that over 80% of pins are actually repins. Means others are sharing the content with others. This is important for two reasons. First, that means much of the content is just simply shared content. Second and most important, if you create your own original content or “pin”, your content could be a part of that 80% and give you huge potential for traffic.
Although I should not have to say it, your content needs to be good. Not like you can throw up anything and it will spread across Pinterest. It needs to be something that users will say, “Wow, this is cool, I need to tell others about it”. Keep in mind, not everything you post will be a hit, but if you post enough, and it’s good or interesting, the better chance you’ll have of something spreading like a wild fire.
Some of the most popular content is video’s and of late, infographics are getting pins. infographics are a visual image such as a diagram or chart used to represent data or information in a colorful and interesting manner.
Tutorials of How-To’s
Many people surfing the internet are searching to learn something. How many times have you suffered the net to learn something? I do it practically every day. We all do it.
So it stands to reason, posting content that explains how to do something is just as popular on sites such as Pinterest. They say this type of content will see over 40% higher click-through rate than normal pins. This is another way to get “more” from what you pin.
As humans, we have the powerful urge to either finish something or find out the answer to a curious question. It’s like we can’t help ourselves, we HAVE to know. This same concept can be used to get more people to click on your links when you pin.
This can easily be done in many ways. For instance, “part” of an image could b pined, in a way that users want or need to see the rest of it. Another way would be to provide some interesting content, but not all of it, leaving the best out, so people need to go to your website to see or learn the rest of what you’re talking about.
These are only a couple of the ways to pull traffic from social sites, if you put in the time.
