With Social Media becoming an ever-growing behemoth of how information is spread and shared across the globe, it would make sense as a business owner to look into social media engagement & driving traffic to your site. If you are any bit familiar with Social sharing, you might be familiar with the term “Viral,” this is simply a term that refers to any content shared on a social platform, whether it was created by an individual or business, that has gained national attention; these posts can be funny, helpful, or informative.
While there is no guarantee that any of your posts will go viral, this is a great article to show you what social media can do for your business, and how driving traffic through a social platform can bring in additional revenue, a larger digital presence, and create a community of loyal customers in the process.
Social media has come a long way from the early 2,000’s, we now have infinite and unlimited access to information from anywhere in the world. With social media becoming a rapidly growing source of information, social platforms have begun incorporating their own search functions for local business as well as adding posts into searchable results. If you are unsure of just how powerful social media has become, just think about the 2.38 Billion monthly users that may be searching for a business like yours.
Depending on your industry, listing your company on a Service listing site such as Angie’s List, Houzz, or Porch can be greatly beneficial to your business as all of these platforms help to give your business additional exposure. When it comes to listing sites, it is better to have many than none at all.
As each platform may have a slightly varying user base, by being listed in multiple places, you increase your reach and put yourself in front of a larger group of people that need your goods and service. Like mentioned above, not all platforms suit each industry, it is best to determine what pages are best for your site based on what other companies are utilizing.
