Be an authority in social media marketing.
In rodays day and age, most everybody is online. Even the folks of the older generation (our grandparents) are online. You of coarse know the benefit, information at your fingertips. One aspect of the internet that is growing of coarse is social media. More and more, people are interacting with people they don't even know. For this reason, it makes sense to push and idea or spread the word on a topic using social media. So hash tag to your hearts desire and be social!
Be an authority in social media marketing.
Google once again had updated their search algorithm and from what I've seen online, the response is not great. A lot of action is happening on various forums claiming that rankings are dropping for legit websites yet improving for spammy websites.
One forum Reddit has a few threads of heated webmasters that are wondering what the future holds. We may have to go back to horse and buggy. Leave your heated comments below!
If you do not already know, Google+ is one of the newest social platforms offered by Google. It's one of the easiest social outlets to date in my opinion because it streamlines everything you would want from adding a personal touch, to adding media, location, plus more.
Think of it as being somewhere in between Twitter and Facebook. It's an opinion of coarse. But if you think about it, it is Google, the world's largest search engine, so why not go to the source for social media.
Are you currently following all the latest entertainment trends? Do you have a hunger to know what's going on in the world? Then you are one who follows popular trends on the Internet. Why does it matter what is trending on the internet nowadays? The answer is simple, it can make you money! It doesn't matter what your blog or website is about, as long as you got some kind of hook to draw people in.
It's easy really, just type Google Trends into your web browser and you will see what is popular in that date and time. Politics, entertainment, and current events are top trends most of the time. So I guess the point here is, be current and stay current. That is your recipe.
Have you ever dreamed of doing something for a living that you love doing? Of coarse! Why not? Lets face it, everyone has a passion (most people anyway). Now to turn that passion into a business. If you are wondering where to start, it's simple, A PASSION! What do you enjoy doing? Take that and build from it. Turn your passion into a hobby. If you like to make styrofoam animal figures for example, make it a hobby and build a stock. Get used to creating new things (whether web content or a product). Once you got that down, tell people about it, it helps if people begin recognizing you based off your product. There are many ways to do this, create a website or blog, even social media accounts. Spread the word. Of coarse it will be a slow start, but you get my drift. Just jump right in, you never know where you may end up (hopefully successful).
Everybody nowadays has a smart phone. One thing people love to do including myself, is discover new and exciting apps in these mobile stores. Some apps are pretty elaborate, some are extremely simple. One thing I have noticed, even some of the simple apps have 10,000+ downloads! If that app cost .99¢ to download, well you could do the math. If the app is subscription based, even better. Some of the most successful apps such as Candy Crush use a system that lets the player purchase various things in game such as powerups to help progress easier. With that system, it's no wonder why they generate $800,000 daily. Have you got any app ideas?
Keep it social. Bottom line, when you don't know what to talk about, just rant. The point is, social platforms are the most used platform in the internet today. Folks who have trouble writing an email, can send a tweet nowadays. If you are trying to embed your brand or idea, you don't need to talk about it all the time, just talk about just, and throw it a blurp every now and then.
People remember more off of repetition. It subconsciously makes the brain expect a pattern. So when you talk, and people see your thoughts enough, they have a chance to form an opinion, and build an expectation of pattern based on your frequency of updates. Think of it this way, if your posts are worth a dollar each, how many would you have to write until you are where you want to be? Say the answer out loud then reach that goal.
