Social Media Today

Social Media Today

Social Media Today – is an ever-changing animal

Constantly, new media outlets are popping up. It can be overwhelming just thinking about how much there is to do! Should I be on Pintrest? What’s Instagram? Is Facebook really that important? Could I be doing more for my business by being active on Social Media today? Well the answer is yes, and here is why.

First, you can build great back links. Social media today and back links operate in unison. Every time your site’s URL is shared or posted it creates a back link. Simply put, back links, from credible sites, increase google ranking. There is a connection between Social Media and SEO!

Social Media today – is time-consuming

Social media today can also be fairly unfruitful. Often times, we spend hours sending posts, replying to comments, adding followers, thinking of clever things to say, and for what? Often, for nothing. SO, here is our suggestion:

  1.  Download: https://hootsuite.com it’s free
  2. Go to Publisher on HootSuite.
  3. Go to “Schedule in Bulk”
  4. Go to http://www.sonixstudio.com/app/csv-builder it is also free (you can even schedule photos!)
  5. Here is a great tutorial on how to make sure you are formatted correctly: https://forum.hootsuite.com/hootsuite/topics/scheduling_in_bulk_with_hootsuite_complete_how_to_guide-tk0cz
  6. Don’t forget to add your URL. When you export your file from the CSV Builder mentioned above, create a Column C and then populate with your URL. Now every post is back linked to your site!
  7. Pick your social media platforms and choose import.
  8. It might be time-consuming at first, but you just saved yourself hours in the future!

With this strategy, you can now do all your “base” social media for the month that promotes your company! You can then share articles and other things you find throughout the month as usual.
