Default Social Media Marketing

Its good presentation, But it has lot more to explain how all the things are working,

Today, SEO as well SMO are both important for business promotion but the mot important thing is that what we are presenting and what media we are targeting. In more clear words, who are our customers and in what manner we are presenting the things, like it may be a Advertisement banner, a story board, a presentation, an interview, a case study or anything else.

Eg: If i am dealing in heavy miniseries then Facebook and Twitter will not work for me. I have to focus on those media from which i could get interested visitors.

SMO is very helpful in promoting Consumer Goods, because it provide a good platform to express views.

I created this images to show how social media marketing should work for an average small business owner:

Step 1: Create & publish relevant content, or link bait that links back to internal pages of your site.

Step 2: Influence aggregators & distributors of information to link to your useful content.

Step 3:
Convince socializers to inform their large network of social media users about this great resource he/she just found.

Remember, you want to influence the influencers, not they try to become the influencer overnight. Too many companies fall into the trap on trying to build 1,000's of "friends" on social media sites instead of influencing the already popular social media users.

There is nothing wrong with becoming a popular social media users (like I am sure small business brief is) but trying to become that overnight does not work for most internet business owners. So an easy way to use social media marketing no is to create great content and get it into the hands of social media users.

Although this post is 3 years old but it did added a bunch of social media knowledge into my knowledge base. The image WebBizIdeas.com used says it all very clearly.

Hi really interesting stuff, please could you elaborate a bit more about how to get the 'right type' of 'influencer', with the 'type' of following' that you would be interested in marketing to. As that is key to increasing traffic to your site!

I've read somewhere that social media marketing doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. Social media marketing has been defined so many times, in so many ways that the definition itself has become so complex. This graphics pretty much simplified what social marketing really is and how to do it effectively. Nice work.

Thank you so much! I didn't think it was possible for me to learn so much from reading one post. I understand SMO a lot better now. It really is a fascinating topic, worth studying more.

Totally agree, you won't get results over night, you need to stay persistent for that

I think if someone wants to know what is Social Media Marketing then this post and its replies would be perfect source. To present something in social media platforms is really different but this thread can help a lot.

Default SMO for small business

I think i have seen your image before, SMO is something that should be done very carefully. Actually famous people or brand names are already popular and they do not need to come up. Everybody knows about them and if they have any update or event SMO allows them to connect to the General Public and increase their popularity. So SMO is basically working for brand Names but yes you can also work on it for your own promotion, but In a common man view i do not rely upon all thing on net that come in front of me rather i will search for brand name. Also while promoting your business or service you should know that at which social media platform you can get your target audience.

While making real profits you have to work hard on your social media profile to gain quality followers that are really interested in your business.

But yes Social media platform hep you to connect to Quality resource and awareness to changing trend in businesses, mainly it happens that local area people are more interested in hiring reliable nearby companies and it is a situation where your SMO could really work provide you good business.

You can also focus on MLM and Viral marketing tricks it is a type of offline SMO that could really work for you. But you can implement it Online also.

Decision is yours now, i think i have written well to explain you all situations
