If you are lucky enough to have someone talking or giving feedback about your business, that is your opportunity to listen then react. Lots of businesses chose to either ignore this phase, or don’t have time for it. Unfortunately, it’s imperative to your success online- because not listening to your ecosystem (or market), and having any expectations for your online efforts is pointless.
Don’t just download instagram photos on sites like YouTube. Although YouTube is the most popular video sharing site–don’t miss out on signing up with it–you need to post to other sites customers visit frequently. Do a poll among your clients and find out where they are most likely to view videos that you post.
To find groups to join, enter keywords in the Facebook search box. When the search results come up, click on the Groups tab to view groups focused on your topic.
Create an eye-catching “Link to Us” clickable button for your site to encourage your visitors to link back to your website. That makes it easy for those who are so inclined to click and link back to your site, thus allowing their visitors to easily find you as well.
Being scared to try new things is also another way that business owners can slip up, when it comes to engaging properly online. Don’t be afraid to start discussions, and be vulnerable. Being too shy or nervous to try something that your audience or customers may enjoy is a shame. You didn’t get to where you are by being risk avoidance- and sometimes trying new things is risky. It can pay off big though.
Surprise them with gifts – Most people enjoy receiving presents sent to them, and your long distance relationship can greatly benefit from sending your partner surprises. Whether you send flowers, chocolates or perfume, these small expressions will assist you to keep your relationship well.
Bottom line, if you have 10,000 RSS subscribers and only 10 of them regularly read your blog posts you’re in trouble. Your competitor who has 1,000 RSS subscribers and 373 of them who actually read all his stuff is going to be ranked higher than you. Because with big G it’s all about the user experience.
I always recommend that marketers use the “octopus” approach when designing their marketing strategy, i.e., that they have many tentacles (or different angles) to their marketing plan. What I do not recommend, however, is spending money you are not making yet to “build” your business. So if you are not already in profit in your business, you should rely initially on free MLM lead sources. One great one is video marketing. Once you are in profit, then start to reinvest and you can add more “tentacles” to your octopus-type marketing strategy.
