It is now almost impossible to run a business without being connected in some way to social media networks. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the like are excellent and necessary forums for promoting your business, driving traffic to your website and creating a brand that your target audience will gradually become familiar with and learn to trust.
Twitter is an excellent social network forum because the structure of the site means that people can only post very short pieces of information at a time which is an excellent way of tapping into the mindset of the average internet user. Twitter also has a very accessible API which means that there are a number of different features, programs and tools that have been created for Twitterers. Therefore the possibilities that exist for online networking through this site are infinite.
However, tweeting a thought on Twitter, creating an account on LinkedIn or developing a Business Page on Facebook is one thing. Making them work for you is another thing entirely. There are huge volumes of social network accounts, pages and profiles floating around on the Internet that are almost if not completely useless to their creators. This is because, as well as uploading content onto these sites you must be aware of the kind of style necessary to generate a buzz.
Internet users have a very low attention span and therefore you must be aware of how to tap into this mindset and of how to prepare your content effectively in order to make your social network efforts a positive use of your time. In most cases, the problem with social networking sites that are not driving traffic or generating a buzz lies in the style of the content and not the content itself. The way in which some social networkers choose to present their information is the thing that is working against them.
For this reason, Webrageous Studios has created a full length article that goes through a number of different areas concerning style and format which need to be considered when placing content on a social network site if you expect the content to generate positive results for your PPC campaign. The ideas presented in the article may seem fairly basic on the surface, but the fact of the matter is that the problems with most social networking sites are also very simple and easily remedied
