Free Social Media Marketing Tips

Tips On Social Media Marketing Free

This blog is a bunch of great free tips on social media marketing such as how to make friends and influence people on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Linked In, Stumble Upon, You Tube, etc.

Everything you need to know about getting likes to your Facebook page, getting more followers on Twitter, getting You Tube views, getting followers on Google Plus, and all of that.

Let me start by saying that you can find a summary of the best free social media marketing tips I have to offer on that blog post I just linked to, which goes on for about a thousand words or more.

There is enough information on how to use different social media sites to get traffic in my head to write a book, or in fact to keep writing a book forever, and that is why I will continue to update this blog with helpful tips that I've learned over the past few years, and that I continue to learn on a daily basis.

I'll start off by telling you what I have found works for me, and in order of how much traffic each one of the big name sites is getting me, it's Twitter, then Facebook, then Linked In, then You Tube, then Stumble Upon, Google Plus, Yahoo Answers, and at the very lowest amount of traffic I get is from Pinterest and Digg, although I can't say I've really even tried to work out how those sites work properly.

Actually, that's not true, at one point years ago, I had fifty Digg accounts, but then twenty of them got suspended, and it wasn't really working anyway.

That's the sort of thing you don't want to do, get your accounts suspended by doing stupid spam tactics that don't really lead anywhere.

It's a fine line to tread to share your pages enough to get seen, and so much that they get seen to be a nuisance. You don't want to annoy people on social media, you want to be their friend.

Twitter is perfect for me, and a lot of people like me, as it's like a big spam machine, especially if you use Twiends. What I mean by that, is people spam to each other whatever they want, and nobody cares, because it's not really spam anyway, it's just random stuff on your dashboard, not in an email, and sometimes you see really good things get tweeted as well, rather than just tweet things yourself to get views.

You follow 50,000 people, and get 50,000 following back, or that's the plan, and a lot of these aren't very active clickers of the links that you tweet, but it's enough that you have a very good chance of getting seen by people, no matter what you tweet.

If you would like to learn more about how to get more Twitter followers, check out the post I just linked to there. 

You might also want to get some SEO tips if you are a blogger, or have a website or page of any kind that you want to see rank well on Google. Remember that Google is watching everything you do, and social media pages are no exception.


The Link Between Social Media And SEO

You might be thinking that you can use social media pages for SEO, and you wouldn't be wrong, as even though they are no follow links, Google does place importance on the number of times a page gets tweeted and shared on Facebook, and social media links are important as part of a natural looking link profile.

How important is social media for SEO? To be honest, I barely care about SEO anymore. I care enough that I write on multiple sites to link to other things I'm doing on other sites, but at the end of the day, I can get more views from social media than I can from Google just by clicking a button.

I've been writing for four years, and I know what I'm talking about. Google tends to drop the ranking for articles and blog posts that have just been sitting around for years, so if you plan to get more views from Google than you can from Twitter or all social media sites generally, then you have to be concentrating on maintaining a ranking of a few pages for large searches, or otherwise don't even bother.

It's good to write a lot, but if you make a page and then don't try to point links towards it, then it will just get lost with all the other pages that don't have many links pointing towards it, unless you get lucky enough that people link to you naturally, or that there is no real competition for that phrase.

That's enough about SEO, and I'm not really an expert in that anyway. I'm an expert on affordable social media marketing, and if you want to get in touch with me, you can do it through that link.
