Social Media

1. Information.

The higher your purchase price, the more information your buyers require even placing a foot on the buying crosswalk.

Social media helps you get attention! Put links into social media about getting more information by joining your list. Tweeting on Twitter using links can get your message all there in 140 characters.

2. Visual.

Sometimes the look and feel of your information matters most.

Some people are visual. Tweeting on Twitter linking visual messages can be your best use of social media.

3. Analysis.

Some folks want analyze every possible aspect before making any kind of buying decision.

Building a list using social media gives you time for this type of buyer to get what they need.

Use social media to get all your information available. That allows allows people who analyze to feel comfortable opting in to your list.

4. Influence.

When something is free people tend to be influenced way beyond what makes sense.

Exciting and relevant information gifts can be offered to readers in your target market. "Free Gift" is a pair of words with influence in social media!

5. Email.

Studies show most people (95%) still prefer to use email in getting information from companies.

That’s been found even among those who use social media the most for their other types of messages. Your email mailing list building is a critical activity across social media because people prefer to get your stuff by email.

6. Relationships.

The story of marketing and the story of business is about relationships.

Good marketing involves connecting with one person and sharing a story.

Reach out! Connect! Develop a relationship and share your story. Building a relationship with social media takes time! People have a short attention span and tend to move on quickly.

7. Who.

If you can reach one person, you can reach another person. You can repeat that!

Figure out who you want to get your story to. Tweeting bits of your information on Twitter as a story over time may fit,

8. How.

You need to know who you want to tell your story to, because that determines how you’ll tell your story.

Go out and listen to people who you’re trying to reach! Maybe you find out where your best buyers hang out. Start in one place in social media, but pick well.

9. Action.

Offer free gifts!

Free gifts get action. Match them to your social media well and you'll get a way to use social media list building! A call to action fits even in Twitter's 140 character Tweets.

Penny, Glad to help, Penny! There's a lot of "noise" out there, but I remember that statistic coming up quite a number of times. Didn't quote or go into detail because I don't remember which studies caught my eye:-) When I bump into my notes (I keep handwritten journals) I'll probably post another article with details. Come to think of it, that's how I've gotten ideas for articles sometimes. Just randomly pulling old notes! thanks for prompting that idea for this week - blessings, Cynthia blessings, Cynthia

Another winner Cynthia, getting used to merely saving your articles direct to file. Free gifts is a winning system it certainly grabs my attention immediately. When my eBooks are ready I'm coming to you to sell for me, you have all the answers.

Rob, Wow. Thanks for your wonderful compliments. By the way, no one has all the answers! Even if someone did have all the answers, "This nanosecond!" they'd be missing all the answers that got created as they said they did. Sure appreciate your sentiments:-) Look forward to checking out your eBooks! Please do send a PDF of your first one when it's drafted so I can take a peek. Might be able to make a few suggestions that save you time as you finish it up. You can just hit return from any one of my lessons you're already getting every few days as a subscriber on my LIST BUILDING FOR TRAFFIC email mailing opt-in list.. Ah, and from your word processor use SAVE AS and then look for the box that you can click to choose your output format. Choose PDF! THen either put it on your website and send me a link -- or if you don't have one yet, then simply attach that to your email to me. Why PDF? I don't open other formats:-) Internet bugs don't find PDF as tasty! blessings, Cynthia

Thanks a lot. Your article is always well noted. The part I like the most is "If you can reach one person, you can reach another ..." It's a statement that gives encouragement to me. Going social media is my next focus.
