Social media marketing is the latest buzz across all organizations. Firms allocate huge budget to carry out their social media campaign in order to increase traffic to their sites. The speed with which the social networking sites have invaded our lives is beyond imagination. But it is also important to remember that spending huge amount of money on social media marketing will not solve the purpose. Utilizing your time in an appropriate manner is important along with the allocation of budget for it and that would work as a key for a marketing campaign to succeed. Implementation of correct marketing strategies would top it up.

Organizations use social media to connect to its valuable customers. The advantage of using social networking sites is their unique ability to provide an interactive platform. The life span of a brand depends on their quality presence on various social networking sites.

Plethora of social networking sites available these days has made our lives very convenient yet leaving us confused with its pros and cons. Advantages are in abundance but these may turn sour if the virtual world is not moderated properly. The virtual world, where social networking sites are the ring masters can either uplift the fate of a brand or fetch thumbs down.

Listed below are 7 handy yet important tips which can make social media marketing a pleasant and profitable experience:

1. Observation

Nature teaches us a lot. There are many things which can be learnt by just observing our natural surroundings. People who are part of our environment help us to mould our decisions.

The success of a social media marketing strategy depends on how well we understand the needs of our customers or people around us. One needs to think peacefully to read others’ mind. Forceful promotion of a product or a service will not do any good. People will come to you only if they feel like. It is very important to come out of your shell and observe the real world to succeed in the virtual world. Communicating with people to understand their requirements would change the perception which will in turn help you to plan your online presence.

Timing is very important to carry out any action with regard to social media marketing. One should be able to analyze when a particular product or service would be viewed. Thus, it is very important to plan your move based on the collected information to make an online presence profitable.

 2. Nurture Relationship

Nurturing relationship is an art, be it in online world or real world. Developing trust becomes an essential feature when there are large number of people involved and it does not happen overnight. In any online marketing strategy, be it on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn etc., bonding with your customer would be very important. These social networking sites are interactive platforms. One cannot use them as a board where text, images or videos are posted and leave for people to decide. If you really want these posts to work for you, the interest shown by visitors will need to be respected.

The comments, queries, suggestions etc. from visitors should be appreciated. They need to be answered at the right time. Engaging them further into a conversation would be the real skill to make the visitors to come back to your page.

The negativity should be completely curbed as far as your online presence is concerned. Your page depicts your personality. The reflection on your page will tell visitors about you and your services. So, always let positive vibes float around on your page.

An organization or an individual should be like a sculptor who sculpts an ordinary rock to give it a shape. Thus, making a page productive depends on how you will sculpt your page.

3. Respect Others Views

Social networking page should be as interactive as possible. One should not see it only as a marketing medium. Bombarding your social networking page about your products or services randomly should not be the only goal. One may join various groups to post about their product or service. This will not help in the long run. One must learn to appreciate others posts too. Leaving a positive comment on somebody else’s page and participation in a conversation would help to uplift the image of your page. Not only the online mode, even other ways of communication like telephonic conversation, emails etc. could also be used to connect with people.

Listening patiently to others views and giving others a chance to express would definitely help your page to be more profitable.

 4. Space

Everybody loves their space. It is not right to intrude in somebody’s territory unnecessarily. After developing a strong fan base, one can also go for a unique strategy by slowing down a bit. This would allow people to wonder about the reason and thereby increase the curiosity quotient. One can utilize this gap to prepare for new campaign which would result in increased participation from visitors. So, respecting each other’s space would also help an organization to make their page profitable.

 5. Seek Proper Permission

Copyright is an important aspect which should be kept in mind. There are so many images, posts, videos and quotes available online. We may use them unintentionally, but that could lead to a major copyright problem. Seeking proper permission before posting any image, quote or video should be in your list of activities. Violating copyright policy can hamper the image of a page which can decrease the viewership.

It is also necessary to monitor the real meaning of your post. The content should not be offending. Any misinterpretation of a post can result in bringing down the image of a page. So, one needs to keep check on how well a content is performing and how it has been interpreted.

 6. Balancing Your Life

The performance of any activity depends on how well we strike a balance between our work and life. You need to take a break from a monotonous routine to think peacefully. Repetition of events can hamper your thoughts, creativity and flow of ideas. Scheduling your life events should be your priority. Allot separate time to your work, personal responsibilities and social media presence. So, in order to think out of the box, take a small break and start off with work with a fresh mind. This will definitely help to make your page profitable.

 7. Prioritize Events

Prioritizing the flow of work is very important. Whether your page should have ordinary posts or you are going to start with a campaign or informative links or images or contests, should be decided beforehand. Do not back out once decided, rather concentrate on one agenda at a time. When the focus would be channelized, it will automatically reflect on your performance and subsequent results.

Thus, it is very important to understand the requirement of your customers in order to strengthen your online presence. Strike a work-life balance and think with a fresh mind to promote your product or service.

 These seven important aspects would play an important role in making your page profitable.
