    What is the #1 way you get people to sign up for your email list via social media?

      Thanks Craig for dropping by and participating. One great way is to give them an ebook or some content such as a training video for free in return for their email address.

        Good idea.  One which they will have to enter their information in order to receive correct?

    It certainly benefits businesses to encourage a two-way conversation with customers, but there is a fine line between asking for contribution and overloading them with all the various channels of media marketing. People can be dedicated to your company, but most don’t want to be bombarded with requests to follow Twitter and Facebook and Google+ profiles simultaneously.

      Thanks Brian for your comment. Yes, there is a fine line between spamming and a marketing message!

      Great point Brian. It’s really a matter of giving your audience a choice. Some will want to connect via email, others through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc… As a marketer, my goal is to get permission to communicate and then for my audience to respond to my message (the call-to-action). The channel doesn’t matter so much as the message was heard and acted on. Because everyone has different preferences, its important that you give your audience a choice for how and where they connect with you.

    Thanks for the reminder that it is important to build a full campaign to promote the facebook activity. Efforts to drive current and potential customers to your page should be something that is communicated through both social media as well as traditional media. Also, it seems that the focus of the promotion on Facebook should be to get the visitors to respond personally in some way with a comment or discussion rather than simply signing up for a twitter feed or email list. Engagement with the customer is a two-way conversation, so the opportunity to converse with them should really be considered when crafting the initial plans.

    I also like the point of using a campaign plan. It can’t be willy nilly when using social media or any marketing for that matter to get results. I think if a person were to sit down at their HootSuite dashboard and schedule posts for the next few weeks at one time they’ll really see how a campaign can work and develop momentum.

      That’s a great point Michael and recommended practice. However, if you schedule a bunch of posts, just be sure to listen and reply to comments and shares. Social media is not just about broadcasting, but also building relationships through two-way convos.

    Facebook like page campaign and you implement the ad wisely, you’re sure to see handsome returns. The idea here is to use Facebook’s in-house advertising platform to reach out to your target demographics and markets who might not find you otherwise.

    Actually all the credit goes to the management and maker of this social network because they are managing this in a best way.

    Good stuff Jeff. I like tip#4, keeping in touch to establish a long-term relationship. When you think about it, It’s really no different than real realtionships – if you don’t stay in touch that realtionship can dwindle. Also really like tip#1. All too often I see deals posted that at the surface seem good, but after some thinking you realize that the benefit is really for the business and not the consumer. We have to keep the customer in mind to get them engaged.
