How to Make Money Social Media Marketing
First thing first, you must find a niche. Something that is tangible that you can market. Now that can be anything from digital products like the one that you see below. It can also be a physical product that you are promoting. The trick is to make sure that people are interested in what you must sell and that you are giving plenty of value up front.
The 80/20 rule applies when you are trying to build a following. So, the 80/20 rule is simple. It means that you want to give 80% value to the people who are following you. Then give 20% self-promotion or business promotion after the 80% value is given. What this does is builds trust, and once you build trust you can then sell. Once you build trust you will gain followers like crazy, they will start coming in at 100’s maybe even 1000’s a day.
Another thing that is crucial is engagement. Engagement is replying to comments and liking comments or likes that your followers leave on your posts. There is no quicker way to lose followers that not to engage them. If they take the time to make a comment you should do your best to reply and or like the comment. If you have a million followers it is understandable if you don’t get to them all, at least try to get to some. Post engagement makes your followers even more loyal to you and your business.
For the love of God be relevant!!!! Don’t post one day that you are building a brand-new business and then the next day talk about how you finally got a job at Wal-Mart. This just doesn’t make sense and you will lose followers like rats leaving a sinking ship. It is critical to be yourself and be truthful about who you are and what you are trying to do. DON’T FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT. People can see right through this.
Finally post consistently. If you only post sporadically people don’t see you as relevant. If you are not always giving them value (the reason they followed you) then they will soon forget about you and your engagement will drop like a stone. So, post consistently and often, as much as you can and don’t forget to make it relevant to the topic at hand. This will keep your followers educated and you in the spotlight gaining followers in droves.
Good luck and stay consistent
