While you may have heard about the importance of social media you might be wondering how to improve your social media influence. There are some very simple things you can do to improve your influence.
The first step is very basic and that is to start using your social media sites on a regular basis. This can be done by posting content daily to your accounts.
You may be trying to get someones attention ‘s and you can do this by using your social media accounts.
Here are the three ways you can get someone’s attention.
- Start commenting and leaving helpful comments on their blog.
- Reference this person when you share their content on your social sites.
- Incorporate Google+ Authorship so people can discover who you are and who you know.
Other ways to increase your social media influence is by publishing a book. Having written 3 books with number four in the works I can tell you that this is a great way to highlight your expertise and your business. Becoming a published author can quickly help brand you as an expert and can also be a huge influence in your local area. Wouldn’t you love to tell your customers that you have just published a book? Their reactions may surprise you.
There have been many people I’ve met at networking events who wanted me to speak to their groups because they saw that I was a published author.
Using social media accounts may seem like a hassle to you, but it is time to start incorporating them into your business. View it as a marketing method and a way to brand your company.
Sites like Facebook could easily become your daily newsletter to your target audience where you share happenings in your industry and let your customers know about upcoming special offers.
