Social Media

What do you think is the best social media site to promote your page on? I personally don't even know. When I promote my website, I usually promote from all my social media accounts, so I never know what one is bringing all the traffic.

Tracking Will Help

Tracking is important with any kind of marketing, whether social media or pay per click or anything else. 

There are three ways to track your ads:

  1. Use a URL Shortener that tracks statistics, and use a different link for each social media network.
  2. Add Google Analytics to your website, and check your statistics that way.
  3. Login to your web hosting control panel, and view the statistics there. Most web hosts provide traffic statistics for free.

As far as which social media network is best, Twitter seems to grow the fastest for me and gives me the most click throughs.

Facebook pages aren't as effective as they used to be as you now have to pay to get noticed.

Google+ is great if you are part of certain communities, but just having a Google+ profile and posting to it isn't enough.

Build Accounts With High Quality Sharable Content

The first thing you need to do is sign up for and learn how to use Google Analytics. This is one of the best free tools to tell you where the traffic visiting your site is coming from. It is important to use all available social media sites to help promote your site. Build up each of these accounts with high quality, sharable content to engage your audience. Then sporadically add your site into the mix.
