How to Use SocialMedia To Profit From Your Business

Disclaimer: Social media isn’t the kind of media you and I know. You should understand that there’s “Social” in social media. Aim to engage & connect; not to sell. But it won’t hurt if you actually make money, do you?

Social Media, I am sure you know by now, is an amazing way to connect with thousands of people from all over the world. The question is, is it useful for your business? Does it bring any return for your time, effort or money invested? This is a question on the minds of even those who have been using Social Media for a long time. Here are some of the ways you profit from social media in your business:

You get the traffic

If nothing else, get a steady stream of traffic to your website by being active on social media. If you do the right things by leveraging your time and effort, you get loads and loads of traffic which you could use for your business development. More people get to know about your business, more conversions happen and needless to say, more sales occur.

You get to join the sharks

Some of the most well-known people all over the world hob-nob on social media (different networks) and that should be a remarkable way for you to discover them and network with them easily.

You will end up meeting some really fascinating people and even if you had to pick one lesson, one lead or one nugget of wisdom from each of them, you have a lot derived from your time on social media. Networking, as you now know very well, holds the key to succeed in business and you now have the best networking tool in your hands.

You are blessed with information

Follow the right people, and you will have access to more secrets and links to resources than most people can get even after they pay for such information.

You get to learn a lot by following the links put up by those who put up these links. On the other hand, you also get to spread a lot of information around. The links you put up will be shared by a lot of people who follow you.

Make it easier for you

How on earth would you get the time to do all this? Daily reading, sharing links, following others and monitoring who follows you, writing enough tweets spread consistently through-out the day, everyday are tasks that will devour your time.

The smart way to do this would be to use a Twitter Automation tool, such as HootSuite or Buffer. These tools allow you to do all of the above and saves you considerable time. With all the time and effort you save, you can focus all your efforts on making whatever kind of money you wanted to.

You won’t regret it.
