Multiply Your Efforts With Effective Social Marketing

Everyone loves to work 18 hour days just like I do right? Wait, that’s definitely not how I like to spend my days. I am all about finding ways to work “smarter not harder” so here’s a simple tip that can cut your work load significantly while still producing the results you need.

As a website owner one of our main goals needs to be traffic generation, preferably quality traffic that will bring us valued readers who will want to become a part of the cummunity and visit us again. Getting traffic to our sites can be as hard or as easy as you make it so why not make it as easy on yourself as you can? Effectively managing your time, producing great content and ensuring that your site falls well within the “good” end of the ease of use spectrum are all critical factors in this process.

Social media has hit the mainstream and there is no sign of it losing traction any time in the foreseeable future, if you aren’t effectively using it already you need to. By leveraging social networking sites you can multiply your efforts and easily get your message out to the masses, instead of just telling 5 people that you wrote a great article on the benefits of social media you could tell those 5 people, have them tell 5 and so on and so forth until you have your little snippet of information in front of millions of potential readers.

Using sites like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Digg, Stumble and so on can be just what your site needs to catapult it from nowhere to main street very rapidly, just please remember that those sites are communities, if you expect to reap the rewards you should expect to put in the work too. Being a productive, decent member of those sites will gain you respect and trust, which are invaluable. If you go there and spam crap all the time you will be thrown to the bottom of the pile and ignored, so don’t blow it.
