Using Social Media to Attract more Traffic

Hi Everyone,

Are you using social media to attract more traffic to your websites, if not why, as it seems that almost anyone who is promoting a new method for generating more website visitors, is using social media, in particular Facebook as their main purpose for doing so. And you can’t blame them for that, with billions of people using FB on a regular basis, it’s where the action is.

Personally I have a FB fan page, it’s been going for a while now, but boy I am struggling to get people to interact with my page. The experts make it look so easy to get thousands of “likes” on their pages, and to continue to grow their audience in effortless fashion.

So I have been trying out different strategies, that the experts tell us to use, to get more people to our pages. It’s all about getting people who have an interest in your niche, to interact with you, and this can be done with various methods, like asking them what they think about something connected to your niche. Polls are good, as they give you answers to what people are interested in, and what kind of answers are these people looking for, once you know these answers, you can give these people what it is they are looking for.

Another way to interact with your audience is to put together a little quiz for them to take part in, and with a little bit of luck, if people like your quiz, there is a good chance that they will pass it on to their friends on FB, and hey presto, you have a viral page that could really get you big results.

But how does this benefit our online biz, well you make you quiz about something connected to your niche, and behind the answers of the question, you place your links to where ever you want that person to go and visit. For instance if you are in the “diet” niche, you would ask an interesting question about losing weight, and give at least three answers to the question. Behind each answer you will have placed a link to something connected to the “diet” niche that you are promoting.

Are you beginning to see the picture here, it promises to be a fun way of connecting to your audience through social media, people go on these social media sites to have fun, they don’t want to see sales pages put straight in front of them, but if you give them something that might be interesting and fun, then you just might start to get their attention and some kind of interaction from all these people, who are potentially your next customers for the products that you’re trying to promote.

Let me say, I am no expert on these matters, but I am trying different methods to see how it goes, I know that social media is where you have to be, if you want to grow your online biz, it’s happening now, and will continue to grow in the future. Finding ways to interact with people and to give the answers to their problems, is a sure-fire way to grow any business.

So here is my first attempt at putting together a quiz question, have a go, and see if you can win the prize.
