Get social and get selling with strategic social media marketing tips

Posted by on Dec 22, 2016 in Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Social Media Marketing, Twitter |

Everyone and their grandmother seem to have a smartphone these days. In fact, the scope of smartphone users is growing to include much older and much younger users than ever before and you know what that means for your business? It means that you have more social media marketing opportunities than ever before. If your business isn’t performing as you thought it would on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, then it’s time to make a change, before you miss out on potential exposure and profits.   Below we share just a few social media marketing tips to help your online advertising campaign:   Capitalize on images and videos. Social media platforms are predominantly flooded with pictures and videos because they’re quick to view, fun and don’t require too much reading. Keep it simple, fun and interesting on your social media accounts and you could notice a change in your target audience’s response. Narrow down your target audience. You cannot appeal to everyone: that’s an impossible task and a huge waste of time. Know who your target consumer is and make sure that all your social media posts will be particularly interesting or appealing to that specific person / type of person. It’s tempting to try to please and entertain everyone but that’s not going to engage with the right people or make sales. Analyze the success of your online content. If an online advert is doing particularly well, use it on your social media platforms too. Also, make sure that you’re posting the type of content that’s already working well for your brand. Trying new things is great, but don’t lose sight of what works in the process. These are just a few strategic ways to ensure that your social media marketing can succeed.   Social media marketing services offered by WSI OMS At WSI OMS we can provide advice on social media marketing or we can create full-fledged social media marketing campaigns across various platforms that are highly targeted and guaranteed to be a success for your business.

How Pinterest can boost your blog referral traffic

Posted by on Mar 22, 2016 in Blogging, Pinterest, Social Media Marketing |

For social media marketing campaigns, there’s no beating the power of Pinterest for bloggers. Unlike Tweets and posts on Facebook or Google+, which have relatively short lives, Pinterest pins will be repinned over and over, some even being pinned years later. They continue to gain traction for months after they are originally pinned. Here are some tips to get long-term, solid traffic referral from Pinterest. When you get started, you’ll need to create about ten boards with a minimum of ten pins each. One board should be for your blog content and another for the general topic of your blog. It’s fine to pin your posts across several boards, but spread them out over time and pin other content in between, so you don’t give the impression of being spammy. It’s a good idea to stay active on Pinterest, to keep your presence relevant. Use keywords when you name your interest boards and write descriptions. Pinterest is a guided search engine that helps pinners find great content using keywords. Writing descriptions with keywords to help it be found by the search is good, stuffing it full of keywords is not. Try to come up with inspiring descriptions that will help your pins be found on the Pinterest Smart Feed. They obviously need to be relevant to your content, so people won’t be disappointed when they click through. Hashtags are not used on Pinterest, so leave them out. Make sure each Pinterest board has a category as well, to help with its searchability. Start a Pinterest for Business account – there are no negatives to this. You need to have a business account to access the analytics, but you can also add Rich Pins so each pin from your blog has enhanced meta-data. Add a Pin-it button to your blog – this makes it easier for people to share your content. Use a Pinterest friendly image for every blog post – it helps with repins dramatically. The elements that make a great pin image are: Size 735 x 1102 pixels Tall, vertical images work best Minimal and easy to read text Ensure your images work on mobile Add your logo or URL, as long as it doesn’t dominate Use a clear, beautiful image or graphic It’s a good idea to share your pins on other social networks. Add links to your pins on Facebook, Google+, Tumblr and LinkedIn. You can also add a link to your Pinterest presence in your email signature, or add your most popular pin of the week in your weekly mail blast. Make sure you practice good SEO techniques when posting your blogs post pins. The final thing to remember is to follow your followers –...

All your business needs to know about Pinterest Analytics

Posted by on Feb 10, 2016 in Pinterest, Social Media Marketing |

Like other social media platforms, Pinterest have analytics that can tell you a lot about your business, your customers and can shape the way you do your business. With Pinterest, you can see what people like from your profile, what they save from your website and what they are interested in too. Pinterest Analytics only works on a business profile, but a personal profile can easily be converted. From your profile page, the analytics button is found on a drop down menu from ‘Edit Profile’. Once in, you’re taken to a dashboard where you’ll find an overview of what’s going on with your profile: Average daily impressions Average daily viewers Average monthly viewers Average monthly engaged Top pin impressions in the past 30 days In addition, using a code you obtain from Pinterest to confirm you are the owner of your website, you’ll be able to know what all of your website content is doing on Pinterest (Website Analytics), not just the pins you’ve pinned. This shows you how your content is performing overall, a vital piece of information. Under your Pinterest Profile, you’ll be able to review Impressions, Repins, Clicks and All Time Data. This will tell you how well your content is performing on Pinterest, over specific timeframes. Pin insights will give you advice on how to increase Impressions, Clicks and Repins so you can refine your strategy and reach more people. It will also tell you what devices your audience is using. Under Audience Analytics, you can access information about your audience, from both demographics and interests. With Demographics, you’ll be able to discover your average monthly viewers, average monthly engaged, country of your audience, metro, language and gender. Under the Interests tab, you can find out the variety of topics and niches your audience find interesting. This is a great way to find out who your competition is, as well as getting ideas of what to pin next. Whilst time consuming, the information you can glean about your content and the audience viewing it, is core to the success of your business. Having a presence on a number of social media platforms means you need to look at the analytics for each one, since your audience on each may be slightly different. Using analytics can help you find and create content that is more relevant to the audience you have. Pinterest is going from strength to strength, with the recent developments of buyable pins, location data enablement, personal messaging and visual search. Any business not already on Pinterest will want to get on board as soon as possible. To find out more about social media marketing and social selling, contact us – we’d love to...

Unfortunately there’s a bit more effort required to get your Pinterest account working for you and earning new followers for your brand. You need to learn how to build a strong presence on Pinterest that offers your followers and potential followers an attractive and engaging visual experience.

Below are a few tips to using Pinterest effectively to grow your business brand’s following: Make your pins as appealing as you possibly can with intriguing images, clear text and detailed descriptions.
