How to Start Social Media Marketing
You know you need to be on social media but as a beginner, it’s overwhelming and complicated. So how do you start?
You know you need to be on social media. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Some of the most popular sites out there on the web. Even Snapchat, even though Instagram is crushing it, it’s still doing really well.
They have over a hundred million active users daily. But as a beginner, all of this is overwhelming and complicated. So how do you start? Hey, everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today I’m gonna share with you how to get started with social media as a beginner.
FIRST TIP – PICK THE RIGHT NETWORK
The first thing you need to do is pick the right social network. Yes, there’s a lot of them. Whether it’s Facebook, whether it’s LinkedIn, whether it’s Twitter, it’s up to you on which network you want to be on. You could be on all of them but if you’re in all of them you’re not gonna spend enough time to make these profiles amazing.
SECOND TIP – START CREATING CONTENT
But now that you have a right one, the second thing you need to do is start creating content. Yes, you’re like hey I have no friends, I have no following. It doesn’t matter no one’s gonna follow if you don’t have any content. So start creating content. That starts off with completing your profile.
THIRD TIP – START BUILDING CONNECTIONS
Now that you’re creating content, the next thing you need to do is build a connection. And you need to build a connection with people, it’s a social network. Just because you’re on a computer doesn’t mean you’re not connecting with humans. So make sure you’re friending all the people that you know, following them. You’re engaging, right you’re building connections.
FOURTH TIP – DON’T FOCUS ON FOLLOWER COUNT
And the last tip is don’t go for follower count. It’s all about having valuable connections, personal ones. Because if your first 100 fans or followers aren’t that engaged with you, all these social networks have it in their algorithms where they’re looking at a percentage.
