37 Ways to Use Social Media to Market Your Website

37 Ways to Use Social Media to Market Your Website | Strategy and Growth | Scoop.it

The key to every site’s success is through good marketing and promotion. Even if you have really good and substantial content on your site, you still need to promote it to avoid getting left behind the competition. In the internet community, the best way to achieve an increase in website traffic and revenue is to take advantage of social media. When used correctly, this tool can provide a platform for brand awareness, exposure, networking, and a huge boost in traffic & sales.

 

Since there are so many different definitions of social media, let’s clarify what we’re talking about here. Social media are primarily Internet- and mobile-based tools for sharing and discussing information. The term most often refers to activities that integrate technology, telecommunications and social interaction, and the construction of words, pictures, videos and audio. This interaction, and the manner in which information is presented, depends on the varied perspectives and "building" of shared meaning among communities, as people share their stories and experiences.

Why CEOs Should Plan To Go Social In 2013 | Business 2 Community

Why CEOs Should Plan To Go Social In 2013 | Business 2 Community | Strategy and Growth | Scoop.it

Last year, the Edelman Trust Survey showed that only 38% of people/consumers around the globe trust CEOs. But yet when it comes to dealing with and responding to a global crisis of any sort, CEOs are expected to be up-front and centre, showing their concern and connecting with the public in a positive way. But with only 38% of us actually trusting CEOs, this makes a company or organization’s job much harder when it comes to building trust in a crisis.

Building online communities was a big topic and included in many of the session at http://www.NMXlive.com which was in Las Vegas about less than two weeks ago. You definitely are doing what it takes to add lots of content and consistently contribute with great content to expand your audience and grow your business.
