By now, all of us know that social media is an important part of every successful internet marketing strategy. Your company probably already has a presence on all social media platforms and what you need now is to find a way to increase the number of your followers. Well, you’ve come across the right blog.
Here are a couple of simple and effective tips from WSI OMS who know all there is to know when it comes to internet marketing:
- Engage your employees and colleagues. Ask them to become followers, initiate conversations and make it easy for them to respond. This may seem like a desperate ploy to increase the number your followers, a ploy that doesn’t make any business sense, but it actually serves a greater purpose when you consider this fact: People don’t become followers of pages where nothing is happening. The more activity you generate the more inclined people will feel join. In other words, active followers attract more followers.
- Encourage your employees and colleagues to add links to your company’s pages in their email signatures. This way, every correspondence with a client or friend simultaneously serves as an invite.
- Add Follow buttons on your website. This is just one more way in which you’ll make it easier for people to find you on social networking platforms. A recent study has shown that, when it comes to the social media pages of companies, people are more likely to become followers if they are invited.
- Host an online event. An effective one is a Fan Page Day. This is a virtual networking party where you allow your followers to share links to their pages on your page. This is a good way to build an online community and make the followers of your followers aware of your existence.
