Killer Tips To Use Social Media Which Tend To Make Your Blog Alive
Why social media? Is there any better reason to use it? Is the advice to be social worthy to follow? Beginners ask many questions related to the use of social media.
I always wonder why Twitter is getting so much attention even though we don’t chat on Twitter. But when I started my blog I was so amazed to use it as a social platform for promoting my blog.
Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Buffer, LinkedIn, and Pinterest are the leading social platforms by the use of which, you can boost up traffic to your blog.
There are many mistakes which are repeated by many bloggers. Beginners treat these networking websites like their personal Facebook account but they should remember that there are some rules to use social media for business.
It is necessary to know about some effective ways by which you can use social media for your blog. I am going to explain few of them.
#1. Don’t Chase Any Famous Blogger
It is noticed that most of the beginners chase successful bloggers. They copy the steps they take. In my opinion, chasing anyone can’t let you do what you really want to do.
You will waste your time to copy those steps. Being you, follow your heart, do whatever you want to do is the better way to explore yourself.
It’ time to show them about your inner talent. Social media is an opportunity for you. More followers tend to more visitors at your blog.
#2. Have Your Intentions Stricken
It is a matter of fact that you need to know your intentions for what you are working so hard.
It is necessary to know that you are sharing your post only to attract people or for self-satisfaction.
How do you feel when you are not self-satisfied and you share your post on any social media network? Ask yourself about it. Try to use social media in a way which can be more specific and remarkable to you and your blog.
#3. Don’t Tweet Without Your Handle
For Twitter users, the most important part to know is that you should never forget to add a Twitter handle. The handle is the name by which you are posting (i.e @yourname ). You have seen many tweets at the last of which it is written as – via @anyname.
It is the Twitter handle. I have done this mistake but a famous blogger, a freelance writer named “Harleena” told me about it.
When you don’t have your Twitter handle then you will not be noticed when someone tweets your blog post. For better use of Twitter.
#4. Focus, Focus, And Focus
To become a better social media user, focusing on your audience is really important. The simple formula to get more attention is the way you figure out the posts at social media.
Join any conversation only when you are ready to provide an information which can make them realize of their opportunity. Social media is the platform at which it is necessary to have an eye on every activity.
#5. Quality Always Matters
As we always mention that quality is the key which can bring quantity with it. If you provide quality content to your readers they will follow you for sure.
Especially in this virtual world, there are many options and people seek for the best. To use social media effectively, beginners should make a commitment to quality which can boost up their follower’s list.
#6. Show Your Presence
The most important stuff to remember is to show your presence to your audience. Be active whenever possible.
People like to connect with an influencer who can provide them more valuable information at a short interval of time.
You can ask any successful blogger about their success rate. In my opinion, this point will be included in their list.
#7. Respond Only When You Know it
There are many people who share many posts without having the knowledge about that. For a social media user, it is necessary to be clear about the link he/she is sharing.
Suppose if you are a blogger and sharing about any content which doesn’t relate to you, if anyone asks you questions related to that topic then how could you answer?
#8. Make Human Bonds
Social media is the place where you will find many people making human relationships. Try to connect with some social media users who are happy to connect with you.
It is easy to sign in to your account and share. But have you ever thought to whom you are sharing? It is great to know as many people as possible.
Networking always leads in any business.
#9. Enjoy The Presence on Social Media
Enjoying your presence on any platform is another major factor which can make you feel satisfied. Enjoy others posts, comment on any post which is valuable.
You will be thanked by many people if you share their post. It is the right time to explore your approach with your heart. Access your mind freely. It’s time to share your stuff and grab the knowledge.
#10. Patience Is What You Need
For every business, patience is required everywhere. You can’t get success just after a blink. Don’t think to get thousands of followers in just a few months.
Work hard, try to know social media better and wait for your turn. Success can’t be achieved at once, you have to wait for the right time. Patience is what you need.
#11. Follow The One Who Interests You
If you find someone interesting related, you should follow that person. You visit many websites in a day, do you remember how many websites were found interesting?
Did you follow them on Google+, Twitter or any other social media platform? You can know about more relevant stuff by following them.
#12. Why People Don’t Share My Content
Reciprocity is the basic rule for every social media platform. If you don’t share others content then how can you expect them to share yours?
Whenever you visit any website to read any post, don’t forget to share it.
#13. Follow Or Favorite The One Who Tweets Your Post
To build up your audience you should follow or favorite who share your content. Try to feel when someone follows you when you share his/her content.
It feels good of that person. A kind of positive image forms into your mind. Be active and don’t forget to approach people who have the same niche.
#14. Give Your Full Info To The Audience
Provide your full information about your organization, address, contact in your profile so that people can find you real. Trust is what you need to build among your audience. To use social media in a better way it is necessary to build trust.
Your Turn To Use Social Media Like A Boosting Tool
Ask yourself before you use social media. For what purpose you are using it? Is reputation matter for you? Be the one who can be known for quality. Quantity and quality both are related to each other.
Why social media? Think and then apply. I don’t think you have to be sure about using it. We all know how it is influential for any kind of business? Still, be sure about it. Make your goals and perfect strategies by which you can conquer your success.
You may face many obstacles in your path but as I have mentioned patience is what you need. Think before you share any content.
It is always recommended that for the effective use of social media you need to learn about it. For every social networking platform, there are some specific ways to elaborate. I would like to tell you that at the present time Twitter and Google+ has the better influence at any business. I would like to hear from you.
