How to Effectively Manage Social Media Marketing For Small Business

How to Effectively Manage Social Media Marketing For Small Business | Simply Social Media | Scoop.it

Social media has grown in the past few years and it continues to grow with very little signs of slowing down. In fact, I would say that the term social media marketing will soon morph into simply “marketing”.


It’s a given that most people are online in one way or another, and whether your target audience is on Facebook, LinkedIn or SnapChat, chances are they have a social media account somewhere (72% do and that number is rising).


A small business is more likely to have success if they take advantage of the how the platforms are used to connect with current and potential customers. Utilizing social media is a bit more involved than just signing up for an account. Once an account is created, it needs to be managed.


But, how can you properly manage a social media account when you’re busy dealing with the day-to-day operations? Hopefully this post will help get you going in the right direction!Here are some ideas to managing social media marketing for small business...

Why Social Signals Should be Your New BFF - Brandpoint.com

Why Social Signals Should be Your New BFF - Brandpoint.com | Simply Social Media | Scoop.it

So what are social signals? Social signals are any type of link from a social media site connected to your blog or website. Some social signals include +1s on Google+, likes on Facebook and retweets on Twitter. For example: If you were on Brandpoint’s Twitter page and retweeted our tweet promoting this blog, you have given Google a social signal.


Why social signals are important, and why should they be your new BFF


Going back to our example, your social signal means you found the content of this blog valuable and worth reading, and Brandpoint to have authority on the subject of social signals, because you’re willing to share our content with your social networking community.


Because of Google’s wishy-washy answers on whether or not social signals are or are not a part of its algorithm, no one exactly knows how strong a role they play in organic SEO. All digital marketers can conclude is that social signals definitely do something positive, and the strength of their effect has grown stronger over time. The more social signals you receive, the more Google knows you have authority on the subject in your brand’s space, and the trust of your audience and consumers. Here’s the equation....

Good look at the value of social signals.
