Social Media Marketing is crucially important for the online presence of your business, good social marketing companies can drastically increase your ROI. Here at Rank Executives, we take a different approach than most other social marketing companies. Rather than just help you manage your online social pages, we will use our already viral pages to seed and promote your content.
Social marketing companies have an array of techniques that they use to ensure viral success of your content. Read the article below to learn some of the insider secrets we have. We take social marketing to the next level.
We like to say that infographics are “inherently viral” on the basis that a good infographic will have no problem going viral. When an infographic is designed with the target audience in mind, the impact can drastically improve your business and brand presence. Even if you have a “boring” niche, infographics can still provide immense value. The one thing to remember is that it is important to design the graphic for the audience, not the website. If your company sells textbooks, don’t make your infographic about textbooks, make your infographic about “top party schools” or “5 Clever Study Tips”, things that are much more likely to go viral.
How we use Social Media: Since Pinterest is focused around the visual aspect of things (whereas reddit is largely text based), it is the perfect place to seed your graphic. Pinterest also provides a link at the top of every pin. When done correctly, people will have to click to your website in order to see the full graphic. Once they are on your site, it is best to design the landing page around conversions and sharing. For example, if you owned an E-commerce site, we will place a link to your store page at the bottom of the graphic.
Every niche is different. Things that go viral in one niche are not necessarily viral in another. For this reason, one on one strategic consulting is necessary to ensure success. Social marketing companies usually employ an array of experts, each trained in the social media aspect of a few different industries. We have social media experts that specialize in the viral promotion of lead generation websites, blogs, e-commerce sites, local businesses, etc. Every business is different and when it comes to social media marketing, there is no cookie cutter method that works every time.
Social media is quite prevalent. Chances are, your competitors are already doing it. We can leverage the precedents set by other companies in your niche to better prepare your own social media campaign. Competitor research starts by following them on Facebook, Twitter and the other major social network outlets. We will track their successful efforts and present these to you. We combine data from their campaigns with the advice and experience from our social media experts to craft you a flawlessly planned and executed campaign.
Believe it or not, Facebook posts at 8PM EST on Monday tend to have the highest probability of going viral. Similarly, submitting to Reddit is most effective at 6am in the morning. We’ve conducted careful analysis on the most effective times for each of the top 15 social websites. It is also the case that certain graphics and post lengths are more likely to get shared than others. To give another example, a graphic sized 500px by 500px has the highest probability of getting shared on Facebook, since it maximizes the preview size.
There is little room for guessing in social media. The main reason why many most social marketing companies are unable to produce results through social media is from their lack of planning and data. Being analytically focused and highly data driven is crucial for a good performing social media campaign.
Think of all the YouTube videos that get tens of millions of views. Wouldn’t you like to be the owner of a video with 10 million views? Imagine how successful your brand will be when literally millions of people each week are exposed to it. It is amazing to think that In 2011, YouTube combined for over 1 trillion views. When averaged out, this equates to around 140 views for every person on Earth. It’s also crazy to think that over 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube servers every single minute. It seems overwhelming. However, dozens of videos every day manage to pull in millions of views.
In order to make a viral video, you need a good understanding of what makes a video “Viral”. Often times, they are short, less than 2-3 minutes. They have a quick attention grabber in the beginning. Typically they are endorsed or shared by a “power user” (Someone with a huge social media presence). We consistently produce viral videos that provide overwhelming success for clients.
Making a page on Facebook is not enough. Your Facebook page can be the gift that keeps on giving, if planned and developed properly. It is important to post status updates that people like to share, updates that engage your audience. If you constantly promote your brand, new products or sales, you will quickly lose your audience.
To get started with your page, consider finding memes or pictures that you think your audience would like. Remember about the timing of your post. Often times people want to post to their company Facebook when they are at work, but what they forget is that their audience is also at work. Post on Facebook after work ends, and a larger fraction of your fans will see it.
People trust brands that have a good online reputation. Often times, potential customers will visit a brands Facebook page to read what customers are saying. Online reputation management focuses on a 24/7 analysis of your comments, tweets and messages.
Although Twitter and Facebook seem to carry the vast majority of the social network power, there are dozens of other websites that have millions of daily viewers too! Social marketing companies focus on your development across the full selection of social media websites.
Memes can go insanely viral. Once you establish a powerful social presence, it is very plausible to virally promote a meme. When we make memes for clients, we will contact other bloggers, Facebook page owners and strong twitter users to help us promote the meme. Including a link back to your website at the top of the posting ensures that you website gets the credit and traffic from the meme. Very few social marketing companies will attempt to use memes, since they rarely catch on, but we have seen great success. They are at least worth a try.
Most bloggers do not sell products. However, most bloggers have an array of readers interested in their niche. As a result, teaming up with bloggers can be one of the most effective social media strategies. Although it sounds like manual labor, conduct outreach. Make a spreadsheet of the popular bloggers in your niche. Call them up, ask them what you can do to make them link to you. Give them a free sample of your product, help promote their blog do your subscribers. You would be surprised how open bloggers are.
Although it is time consuming, blogger outreach is one of the most powerful ways to get a consistent source of links to your website.
As with any online marketing campaign, getting links to your site is very powerful. Links help drive search engine rankings, send targeted traffic, and boost your brands online exposure. “Link Bait” refers to any content that entices people to link to. These tend to be things that are shared easily on social networks, or things that grab the attention of a large number of users.
Sometimes SEO companies think it is enough to simply create the link bait. Unless their is a social marketing aspect behind the outreach efforts, your great piece of content will fail to serve its purpose. It is the job of the social marketing companies to ensure that the link bait gets the recognition it deserves.
Many people focus on building links to increase their rankings, forgetting about the impact of Social Media SEO. Search Engine Optimization is a natural process that has fundamental roots in Social Media.
As Google turns to Facebook shares and Twitter posts for insight on SEO rankings, a powerful online social presence is important for any quality business. New social media sites such as Pinterest offer a new take on the world of social media. On these social outlets, you to specifically share the product that you offer for scrutiny by a huge public forum of people. Making sure that you are on top of and utilizing the latest in social media tools is the key to reaching your targeted audience. When you are on top, you drive traffic to your site and ultimately convert those visitors into lifetime clients. Social Media Optimization is not a one time process, but an ongoing campaign that constantly drives quality visitors.
