5 Ways Strategic Social Media Can Help Small Businesses

5 Ways Strategic Social Media Can Help Small Businesses | Get Your Local BizBuzz On! | Scoop.it

One of the biggest misconceptions about social media strategy is that only the big brands and enterprise organizations can afford success. The impression is bigger businesses have unlimited resources, people and budgets to execute on all new ideas. This is simply not true. Like in anything, people are focused on their jobs as they exist and anything new that comes along, well, it’s met with prejudice.


The truth is that small businesses possess an enormous advantage over big businesses—the ability to recognize and adapt to new opportunities much faster, with far less investment, and with a greater capacity to learn and improve at will. So when it comes down to how a small business should consider how to employ a social media strategy, why would we look to big business for inspiration?


a) Because they have millions of friends, fans, and followers?
b) They are getting a ton of Likes, Tweets, and Youtube views?
c) They are always the source of the best content – videos, posts, infographics, designs
d) None of the above


The answer is “d” – none of the above.


Why?

 

Because most businesses, large and small, have not answered that very question, why? Why would we go on social networks? Why would customers connect with us there? Why would we gain any value out of online engagement? Why would any of this impact my business?

 

At the root of the problem, today’s social media programs start with the technology in mind and not the solution in mind. Many businesses jump into Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+, et al, without thinking through opportunities or customer expectations and experiences.


To help get you started and to leap frog even the most advanced businesses in social media, I’ve outlined 5-step approach. Working through it will assist in the development of a relevant social media strategy that allows you to earn customer attention, relationships, and loyalty in places that only expand your reach and impact.

The Elements of an Effective Small Business Website

The Elements of an Effective Small Business Website | Get Your Local BizBuzz On! | Scoop.it

Yesterday I talked about the importance of your website as the digital, online hub of your business. Also, there are still many businesses that either don’t have websites, or have old school websites that are merely static online brochures. And I’m also amazed that there are still web designers creating these old school websites, and sadly many small businesses don’t know any better because they are looking for a “cheap” option.


But whether you have a website that you’re looking to improve, want to replace your website, or are considering your first website, here are a few tips on things you need to consider as you develop the site.

Author Rank: A Step-by-Step Guide to Dominating Search with Content Marketing | Get Your Local BizBuzz On! | Scoop.it

"Another way in which you as a content creator can dominate the search rankings with your content is to get more and more social shares.

 

 

 

A study by branded3 proved the connection between tweets to a particular URL and its ranking. Their results showed:

 

 

 

1) 50 tweets or less – Not sure how much, but URLs received benefit in rankings with 50 tweets or less, but those benefits declined after that.

 


2) 5,000 tweets – There’s a huge jump for a page that gets an average of 5,000 tweets. This would be content that goes viral on Mashable, BuzzFeed or Copyblogger.

 


3) 7,500 tweets – When a page gets 7,500 or more tweets, they can easily show up in the top five SERPs on Google".

The online network has features to help users grow business and find new customers.

 

SUMMARY: LinkedIn is a powerful tool for business owners, but not everyone puts the site's built-in marketing tools to good use, Tasha Cunningham writes. Display ads and recommendation ads are a powerful tool, but using unpaid options such as internal mail and simple status updates can also be an effective way to build your brand.
