Today, the majority of people all over the world have a Facebook account and another form of social media account of some kind. With these kinds of numbers, it’s clear that we should be using social media to help us generate some serious traffic to our website(s). The best way to use social media to bring people to your monetized platforms is to make a good post. There is some work that goes into this before you will see real results, however. The first thing we must do is to build a good audience. This can be achieved by following other people with related niches and content. By interacting with other people and their content they will be more likely to interact with yours and follow your links.
Once we have our audience in place it’s time to start posting and directing people to our websites. Making engaging posts can be some work so you want to work smart, not hard. The first thing you will want to learn is how to find good media or how to produce it. This is the first thing you will be using to catch the user’s eye. The first way that you can find free images to use for your posts is going to Pixabay or Google images. When using Google just be sure to set the usage rights to free to use and modify. This means you can add text to the images and make them more engaging for the viewers. Canva (www.canva.com) also has a good and free program that allows you to create media for your posts and make the media as attractive as you can so that you optimize your traffic.
The next thing you will need to do for your posts is to give them decent text content. You want to make it engaging and informative as well. Letting the person know what they may be clicking on and getting into makes for a better user experience. Writing engaging posts to get people to click your links is a key component for your social media traffic success.
The top social media platforms used in this way are Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google+. On these platforms, you can share your content and build good links to bring people to your websites. Pinterest is a great tool for creating more traffic for your online ventures. By saving pins and adding links to the pins that you save people can see the content you produce to drive them to the website. Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ are all good to use as well. On these platforms, you want to join groups and even create one for yourself to get more individuals seeing your content. Another good thing to do is to follow people with related niches or even the same niche. This will ensure that more people that are already interested in your work will be seeing your content.
In conclusion, active and well organized social media accounts contribute highly to the traffic that is seen by top websites today. By using these platforms as traffic generation tools you can start to see a lot of traffic coming your way. Good luck!
