Why Invest in a Social Strategy? There are over 100 ways and counting to market your business, why are you choosing Social Media? Is it the most affordable method? Is your competition crushing you? You study statistics and your target market is definitely buying through social media?
That’s why you need to start looking into a social media mangement system. There are a lot of them out there, but I personally use a company called Hootsuite.
The world’s largest companies are spending up to million every single year just to get people’s opinions – and you can cash in on your share of that money! Paid surveys are becoming one of the most popular ways of making money on the internet, and it’s a market that is growing fast, especially in the current climate with companies being forced to do more market research to avoid potentially very expensive mistakes. This means more and more surveys and focus groups are becoming available for you to profit from.
Let’s assume that you are already interested and are ready to sign up. The process is very quick and simple. The first thing you have to do is go to twitter and click on the “Get Started-Join” button. When signing up for twitter it asks you for four simple pieces of information – your full name, desired username, password, and an email address. Once you are finished filling out the short form, click the “Create my account” button, and you will be on your way. It is that simple.
Does this sound familiar? If so, count yourself in good company. This a common problem among people who work at home on the internet. I call it the Shiny Syndrome. It is too easy to be pulled this way and that every time something shiny rolls across our computer screen. It requires dedication, good time management skills and laser sharp focus to overcome these shiny obstacles. If you find yourself acting like a Magpie, chasing those shiny things instead of being productive, put yourself on a business diet.
You can combine these techniques. Let’s say you have a viral marketing piece written or interesting articles. You can put them on Twitter and facebook, two-for-one!
Instead – I challenge you to take your skills, and apply them to Real professionals in the real world who need someone like you to succeed.and are willing (and Able!) to pay you what you are truly worth as well.
People will start talking about you on the Social Media networks and it’s important that you know who and what they are saying. It’s also very important for you to participate in those conversations.
