10 Tips for Getting Traffic Through Social Media Sites

You have probably heard me say before, but it’s worth repeating, Web 2.0 sites and social media has arrived. (and won’t be going anywhere for a long time). Experts predict that this trend will only grow. That means if you don’t start using social media now – today – you’ll be left behind.  In case you haven’t heard, the search engines are now picking up content from Twitter and soon you’ll see those posts at the top of the search engine results.

Here then are 10 tips for using Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites to drive traffic to your website…

1. Complete your profile.

When you first sign on to your Twitter, Facebook, Squidoo or other social media site account, fill out your profile (including a picture). Doing so makes it easier for people to get to know you and build relationships with you, knowing the things in which they have in common with you will make it more likely they’ll click through to your site.

2. Interact.

Social sites are, just what they imply, social. They’re two way streets (not monologues) where people with common interests can interact. That’s why you shouldn’t just post content and move on. Instead, spend a few minutes each day interacting and getting to know people in your network. Remember, people like people who take interest in them.  It’s not just about you.
