3 tips on how to quickly get Facebook likes and Twitter followers

get facebook likesSo you’ve set up your Facebook page, created a Twitter profile and started posting away – but no one’s following or liking you.
………………………………………………………………………. Well, what did you expect? People aren’t just going to magically find your social media profiles. They probably don’t even know you’re finally on social media. Chances are, a large number of your customers would love to connect with you online, but if you haven’t told them about your Facebook page and Twitter profile, they’re not going to find you. And without an audience, social media marketing is pretty pointless.
………………………………………………………………………. Here are 3 tips on how to quickly get Facebook likes and Twitter followers:

1. Promote your social media profiles on your website.

Add some social media buttons to your website with links to your different profiles. Make sure the buttons are in a prominent location (like the header) and can be seen from every page – not just “home”. You may wish to use a call-to-action, such as “follow us on Twitter for the latest updates” or “like us on Facebook for special offers”. You can even add a real-time feed to your site, which will automatically post your Facebook and/or Twitter updates to your website as they happen.

2. Tell your customers about your social media profiles.

Include links in your email signature, e-newsletter, automated tax invoices, TV ads, and even your printed marketing collateral. You may even choose to send an email to your database, letting them know that your business is now on social media and that you would love to connect with them. Give them an incentive to follow you: tell them about the kind of content you’ll be sharing, the great exclusive discounts you’ll be offering, and the exciting competition you’ve got planned.

3. Advertise on Facebook Ads.

Chances are, you don’t just want to use social media to build a better relationship with your current customers – you want to find new ones. If you are looking to use social media marketing as a lead generation and customer acquisition tool, you need to invest some money into it. To spread the word and connect with prospects, set up a strategic Facebook Advertising campaign. The great thing about FB Ads is that it will allow you to specifically target certain individuals that fit your demographic, such as age, gender, family status, parental status, likes/interests and even geographic location.

If you use these 3 tips effectively, you’ll have hundreds of people wanting to like and follow you within no time.
