17 Tools That’ll Take Your Social Media Marketing Results to The Next Level

17 Tools That’ll Take Your Social Media Marketing Results to The Next Level | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

According to one of the latest industry reports compiled by Social Media Examiner, 80% of marketers report that social media has increased website traffic for their businesses. As expected, there are other benefits. For example, 72% of marketers say social media helps them develop loyal fans.

Although almost everyone uses social media for their businesses, very few do it efficiently.

They spend a lot of time and resources and get back minimal results.

You need to spend time optimizing your social media efforts. Once you do, you will save time and get better results in terms of engagement, traffic, and conversions.

One of the fundamental ways to do tasks more efficiently is to use tools.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 17, 10:03 AM

(from the article): All social media platforms are unique, but a successful strategy often looks similar across most platforms.


One component of that strategy is sharing content, which comprises both of your own content (to drive traffic to your website) and other great content in your niche (that’s interesting to followers).

 

In order to be successful, you must have a consistent sharing strategy. These tools will help you do that.

7 Social Media Marketing Mistakes to Avoid With LinkedIn | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
With over 329 million members, LinkedIn can provide invaluable networking opportunities for professional services firms. Since it is a social network geared specifically to business professionals, LinkedIn users don’t have to battle the private and public persona struggle that other sites like Facebook or Twitter can create.
