Social Networking: How to Promote Your Business and Website

July 17, 2010 by  
Filed under Social Networking Ebooks

If you are new to starting an online business, you’re probably wondering how to get traffic. I know this is the number one question I get from those who are new to internet marketing.
Although there are many ways to get traffic online, if you use paid traffic techniques, it can quickly get expensive.
If you’re new to internet marketing, and you’re working on a small or non existent budget, you can still get a lot of traffic to your website using free techniques. The easiest way to do this is to start with social networking sites because you can piggybank onto their high traffic and use these sites to start building targeted traffic to your own site.
First, you need to choose the social networking sites you will market on. I recommend starting small to get your feet wet. This means joining one or two general social networking sites like MySpace or Facebook, and then joining one or two topical social networking sites. When joining topical network sites, you want to join sites that have a fairly large number of subscribers and are active. Inactive sites won’t do you a lot of good in marketing your business.
Once you join the social networking site, set up your profile. Make sure you add a link to your site in your profile and tell others what your business is about. Let others know you have an ezine or subscription list and tell them they can get more information. If possible, include a subscription box right in your profile. If you can create a simple table, you can do this.
Start making friends. You want to do a search on the site for your topic. You may have to search several times, as well as change your keywords, but keep searching until you find the type of people you are looking to connect with. To make it easier to connect with you, make sure you include the appropriate keywords in your profile and include information on the type of people you want to connect with. Once your friend request has been approved, then post a comment on the person’s profile. Say thank you and then include a link to your site, as well as a little information about your business. (Avoid the flashy graphics though. You’re a business owner, not looking for a date.)
Next, look for groups and forums on your topic. Look for groups and forums that have a lot of members and get involved in the conversation. Include a signature with every post you make.
Don’t go overboard though when writing your signature. You should only include one link and make sure tha you use your keywords as the anchor text (the text others will click on to go to your site). You want to write a signature that will compel others to click on your link, yet avoid offering a blatant sales pitch. Offer

valuable, and real, information to get others to click your link.
Some social networking sites will have free classifieds, and others won’t. If the site does have free classifieds, then be sure and post an ad. Try to give away something free, like a subscription to your ezine, an ebook, or something like that.
If you have a talent for video, then you should definitely create videos to share on these sites. If you can upload videos to the site to share with others, then you should definitely do so. If not, try to at least embed a video into your profile to make your profile sticky.
How you promote on social networking sites is only limited by your imagination. Just make sure you avoid spamming, as well as obtrusive sales pitches that might annoy your audience.

Social Networking 2.0 – College Grads and Young Professionals Using Technology to Launch Career

An Inconvenient Truth

It is not a matter of what you do but who you know that really matters. For many year this was an unfortunate truth, especially in the business world. While the A-student works diligently for 4 years to graduate with honors, the slacker with the rich parents gets the inside track to the top jobs in the industry. Simply by knowing the right people, the slacker get’s his foot in the door and coasts right onto the fast track. Fair? Of course not! Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, however, this trend is quickly ending…

Social Networking 2.0

Social networking has connected people, both professionally and personally. The benefits of social networking are undeniable and nothing can be said in this forum that has not already been said a million times. Specifically, social networks have been extremely instrumental in providing college graduates and young professionals with the vary advantage that the “slacker,” above, previously held. Today, anyone can access millions of professionals and gain the specific information and tools to significantly increase their chance of landing the job of their dreams. This process, however, can be excruciatingly slow – especially for those that are in desperate need of a job! Here is an example:

Scenario A: The hypothetical best case social-networking scenario

Joe College is graduating in a couple weeks with a degree in Accounting. He wants to land a job at one of the Big 4 Accounting firms. Joe registers with LinkedIn and creates a profile. He does a search for other graduates from his school that are working in the accounting field. Joe finds an alumni from his school who has been working at PricewaterhouseCoopers for two years. Joe sends an invitation to connect with the alumni. Joe waits a few days. Joe’s invitation is accepted. Joe sends the alumni a message saying hello. Joe wait’s another day and gets a general response. Joe asks the alumni if he could call him to discuss Big 4 accounting. Joe waits another day. Joe finally has a conversation with the alumni and asks “tell me everything you know about getting hired with a Big 4 accounting firm.” Much to Joe’s luck, the alumni is involved in the campus recruiting program at PwC and is well versed in the hiring process from start to finish. Joe learns how to get his foot in the door, what to expect from the hiring process and how to mold himself into the perfect job candidate. Joe applies this knowledge and lands the job of his dreams!

Scenario B: Social Networking 2.0 – Instant Information

Company A.com is founded by two young professionals on the cutting edge of their respective fields. Company A anticipates that many grads would love to pick the brain of those that have landed the job of their dreams. Company A gathers all this information and boils it down to no-holds-barred information products including eBooks and screen-casts. Joe College visits www.big4guru.com and within seconds has purchased an eBook titled “How to land a job with the Big 4.” It is simple, potent and he can apply the knowledge today. For the cost of afew drinks at the bar, Joe has learned the secret to making his $120,000 degree pay off. Joe applies this knowledge and lands the job of his dreams!

The beauty of social networking 2.0 is that it eliminates the need for networking all together. The purpose of building social networks, from a professional sense is to gain access to the knowledge and information that will allow one to advance. By taking specific knowledge, condensing it to a concise electronic format (pdf), and providing instant access, the need to spend endless time and energy tracking down the perfect person to add to your network is eliminated. The information is easily obtained and instantly accessible.

When asked about this phenomenon, the founder of Big4Guru.com, who wishes to remain anonymous, had this to say:

“In viewing individuals’ networking techniques and desires, it became obvious that there was a consistent end product that was being sought. In the case of Big4Guru.com, we found that many college grads and low-level professionals would love to find a recruiter from on of the Big 4 Accounting firms and simply say – ‘ Tell me everything you know about getting hired – tell me exactly what to do.’ This is exactly what we have captured on the site. If you want to land a job with the Big 4, you can pick the brain of a recruiter in 5 seconds – its that east.'”

Well said.

The Big 4 Guru is a NY State CPA, proud Big 4 alumni and seasoned industry professional. His passion is helping new accounting professionals achieve their career goals.

Five Ways You Can Build Your Reputation With Social Networking

Five Ways You Can Build Your Reputation With Social Networking
By Bob Jenkins

Are you using social networks to build your reputation online? Whether you already are or you are just getting started with sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Ning, building your online reputation is your biggest responsibility.

Here are five ways to make sure you do it right.

#1: Be Proud Of Being You

The first thing is, you have to be yourself. You have to be who you are. Because although you can get away with being fake for a little while, as soon as one person realizes that you’re not who you say you are, your reputation is destroyed almost instantly because of the power of social networking.

So be yourself. And don’t be afraid of being yourself. Realize that you have some gifts and some knowledge that people need to know about, and those that want to learn from you are going to gravitate towards you. Those that don’t think you’re worth listening to are basically going to ignore you. And it’s at their peril, so don’t worry about them.

#2: Transparency – Never Hide From Your Audience

The second thing about your reputation is you should try to be transparent at all times. This means you keep everything real with your audience.

For example, over the last year, I used social media to show you my move from Maryland to North Carolina, including drama with the movers, picking the house, and getting it set up. I also pulled back the curtain to show what it takes to run a product launch.

When I did my last product launch, I was Twittering every day what I was doing to get ready for this site. Most of the gurus out there would keep everything under lock and key, and I was being very clear, saying, “This is what I’m doing to get ready for this launch.” It actually helped me have a better launch, even though I told everybody exactly what I was going to be doing.

They didn’t think that they had some surprise or whatever like most people teach; they just were excited to be part of it and part of the story. So be transparent. Let people know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, and they’re going to learn how to trust you.

#3: Be Positive For Positive Results

The third way to build your reputation is to be positive.

There are folks out there who generally can do a good job of being negative. I don’t know about you, but I don’t find that to be a very long-term profitable strategy.

It may get you some attention at first and spark some controversy, but that’s not the way to go. Be looking forward to the optimistic of your industry, of your business and what the results are going to be.

It would be easy for you to go onto Twitter or onto Facebook and talk about how you’re having a bad day or this product sucks or this week sucks or this relationship sucks. But you’re not really there for a support network, per se.

You’ll find some of that. If you have something bad happen in your life, sharing it with your followers will be very therapeutic for you and you will get a lot of support back. But when you’re just blasting negative things out, you’re going to get negative things in return, usually.

So try to be positive as much as possible and look for the opportunities that are out there and look at them from that positive perspective.

#4: Build Your Reputation And They Will Come

The fourth thing you must do is to be patient. This is because, initially, your reputation is going to be built only by yourself and the first initial people who get to know you. But as time goes on and you get more followers and you build a larger network of friends and peers, your reputation will solidify to allow your business to grow.

Once it hits a tipping point, your reputation and business accelerates at a very quick pace.

So be patient and let it happen. Don’t try this stuff out for a week and then come back to me next week and say, “Well, it didn’t really work. I didn’t really get any results yet.” You’ve got to let social networking play out over a few weeks and then a couple months and so on. A year from now your business is going to be tremendously different compared to where it is right now.

#5: Contribute To The Conversation – Every Day!

The fifth thing about your reputation is you need to be someone that people look to as a contributor, not as a leech, not as a mooch, as a contributor.

You have to be willing to be involved in the conversation, and you have to be willing to give as much or even more than what you’re going to get in return. The people who do that are growing so fast it makes my head spin.

I feel that I’m a pretty giving person but I see some other folks out there that just keep on giving, giving, giving and they just build up a huge following and that social capital is a real asset to your business. So you need to make sure that you’re contributing as much as possible to the conversation.

I don’t mean that as just go around randomly and try to help people. Within your specific task, your specific industry, the things you know well, you need to be at the forefront of letting people know how to do what you know how to do without charging them money at first.

They’ll come and find your site and your products and they’ll pay you for that as time goes on and their needs grow. With social networking you need to be building your reputation up first.

If somebody has a question, you should be one of the first people who answers and you need to answer without reservation not just, “Oh, I answered that in my eBook; go buy it”. They’re going to find your eBook if you just talk to them and give them solutions to the problem they are struggling with at that moment.

Give people your input, your encouragement for them to get better at what they are trying to do.

Any little quick free advice you can give, give it.

Actively Build Your Reputation With Social Networking And Reap The Rewards

You’ve got to be in this for the reason of having fun and really building that relationship. Dollars will come, there’s no doubt about that. But first, connect with people and really help them out. Understand that they’ll become loyal followers of what you do and see you for who you are.

Follow these 5 steps to building your reputation online and you’ll not only beat your competition, you’ll have more fun doing it!
