Social media was made to connect people with people – why not use the fundamental building blocks to your advantage? Take a look at some of the social media tips.
Time Your Tweets
If you really want to expand your audience timings of your tweet is really important. Noon Eastern Standard Time is a great tweeting time to reach bigger audiences. American West Coasters are showing up for work then, while East Coasters are starting lunch breaks. Timing your posts in other social networks is an art.
Ask Lots of Questions
Asking questions is a great way to engage your contacts, attract fresh links and learn new things. When people reply to your questions with comments or posts, it boosts the visibility of your content on that particular network. But take care to read and respond to answers.
Boost Reach and Engagement on Facebook
There’s so much noise and saturation on Facebook that adding more content no longer seems to be the answer. Instead, posting only the best content that is highly targeted for your audience will produce better results. And posting less frequently seems to encourage the Facebook algorithm to share your content with more people.
See Restricted LinkedIn Profile Search Results
Ever look for people on LinkedIn, but the search results you see are restricted based on your membership level? Because the majority of profiles are indexed on Google, you can use the search engine to do a more comprehensive search.
For example, if you find that you can’t access the full profile information of someone on LinkedIn, go to Google and type: site: linkedin.com “name of person”
Join in on Communities
Participating in these communities will help you establish yourself or your company as an authority. Use communities as an opportunity to share your knowledge and interact with influencers. As you start to connect with these influencers, they’ll be more likely to share your content with their followers on social media and maybe even on their own websites.
Use Keywords in Your Posts
Don’t underestimate the power and effectiveness of the social search. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social networks have search features that operate just like search engines.
When people search for a specific keyword or phrase like #SMM, the site’s bots crawl through all of the content on the site including your posts and profile to display the most relevant information.
