Yes, here's how... You probably already know or have heard that "Social Media Marketing" is THE hottest way to grow your Small Business (SMB) and get new clients today, but if you don't know how to use Social Media Optimization (SMO) strategies on websites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to get clients then read on.
In my practice we've found that these are the Top 10 ways to use SMO to Attract New Clients:
1. Set up Accountson Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube
2. Then create Search Engine Optimized (SEO) Keyword Rich Profiles
3. Next Grow your Networkson Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
4. Join Groups on LinkedIn and Facebook
5. Set-up a Blog on your website
6. Create a Facebook Fan Page
7. Establish your expertise by Answering Questions
8. Comment on Expert Blogs in your Market Niche
9. Blog 2-3 times a week, post on Twitter daily
10. Write and Post one new Article a week
You may be asking: Doesn't that take a lot of time and effort?
Yes, we understand how you feel, we've felt that way ourselves and we've found that It does takes a lot of time and effort in the beginning to Search Engine Optimize (SEO) your profiles and grow your networks. Plus you have to know what you're doing, how to and when to do it. Then you have to use the proper etiquette, approaches and understand the culture of each Social Network. But we've also found that once you've invested the time and energy to get it all set it only takes a few hours a week to maintain and the return on your investment (ROI) can be very high.
Don't have the time or energy? There are very affordable alternatives if you just want to sit back and get new Clients while someone else does all of the 'heavy lifting'.. Interested? Then you have to learn more about the newest trend: Social Media Outsourcing.
