3 Tips for Marketing on Social Networks

February 23, 2016

 

Marketing on social networks requires more of a focus on the human element since its more about building relationships then it is your technical knowledge. There's no way around it, social networking for business requires building trust with others which requires time and interpersonal skills. You notice I did not say effort since making 'friends' should be more an act of enjoyment and not regarded as labor!

 

In order to get the best results when social networking for business here are 3 things you will need to do.

 

Exercise Patience

 

Take off your selling shoes and pull up a chair so you can get to know people. Building relationships is an absolute must to even get notice on any social sites and as you know this takes time. Even if you are only social networking for business time must first be taken to develop some type of bond with others or you will be invisible to them and useless to your business!

 

Establish Credibility

 

The bonds you do develop need to be meaningful insofar as maintaining a knowledgeable, professional and always helpful profile. For any marketing attempts to be successful people must first have some confidence that you know what you are talking about and that your intentions are good and not all business. Your best results will come ONLY after you have taken the time to develop this good reputation with others.

 

Develop Trust

 

The most important component of the reputation you develop is trust. As touched upon above, your reputation must be a positive one that reflects credibility but building trust is just as, if not more important. If people cannot trust in you then any efforts you put into social networking for business will be wasted. People cannot be expected to part with their hard earned money if they lack faith in you so building trust is a priority. The best way to achieve this trust is to make a habit of being helpful or freely offering any type of information that may be of use or interest to others. Do so without any expectations of receiving anything in return and people will quickly regard you in a trustworthy manner. Besides, it feels good to be helpful to others!

 

There is no need for technical skills when marketing on social networks just simply be willing to pull up a chair and stay for a while. Tapping into the viral potential of these communities will require building relationships with others first and this will take time and patience. By building trust with people in this way simply makes it easier to effectively promote to them in the future. It is very important to remember these are in fact social communities therefore your acceptance must precede any marketing efforts. Once this acceptance is earned, social networking for business becomes a breeze!
