How about I share with you some results you can be getting from your blog and social media with the people you’re trying to communicate with through your blog and social media?
Bear with me here:
Your blog and social media are valuable tools to use in helping strengthen your brand and reach out to potential audiences.
But before I jump into the details, let me say this…
We all want to get found online, great then what?
- The goal is to: Convert your blog visitors that are coming over from social media.
Let’s talk about that, as a result, you can and must have content that speaks to your ideal audience about how you can help so that they don’t have to spend time trying to figure it out on their own. You are there for them and your content from your blog and social media talks about this just for the.
- I’m talking about using your content to attract and grow your email marketing, which can be profitable for anybody, no matter what kind of product or service you offer.
But building your list, which is the foundation of email marketing and your business success is in the quality and size of that list.
And this takes a lot of consistent content – podcasts, posts, videos, newsletters, free offers that help them fix their issues; along with building relationships through social media, blogging, and consistent contacts through your emails.
- Because your goal is to build a list of subscribers that trust you and consider you an expert in your field! Then your response rates will constantly climb – helping you have more clients, more business, and more fun.
You probably are creating content to help share and grow your business. Some of your content seems to attract your niche and because of that, it’s a lot more effective in helping to grow your email list as your niche sees the ideal freebie to fix their problem and want to download it as they get into your business more – which means more interest in what you do and offer that can help your audience want to get more involved with how you can help them.
But whatever type of content you put out to your audience, you’ll want a certain purpose, for your ideal audience (your niche), and have a goal in mind of where you’ll be leading them.
And you’ll want to do it efficiently with a theme in mind which helps determine what your goals will be for the week, the month, the quarter…
How many hundreds of posts have you written? How many videos have you recorded? Why Not Repurpose Content of Your Popular Posts?
Your content promotion and marketing efforts give you a lot of paybacks:
- Helping people through information, resources, insights, and useful tools.
- Building brand awareness.
- Earning trust in your online community.
- Establish your following.
- Turn your followers into blog visitors.
- And turn your blog visitors into sales opportunities.
Reaching out and making meaningful connections with others online who share your interests and passions is inspiring, interesting, thought-provoking, and well you ‘get’ it. It’s well worth your time and efforts.
- This is not a mindless diversion. It’s what you do for your blog and your business– to share your passion and information.
You make it an extremely productive activity.
- Maybe all your work could continue into something more – You could be generating an email list so you can grow your income by using your blog and social media as your marketing funnel.
OK – You say you’re not a marketer?
Hmmm….I think this qualifies:
- You promote your information through content marketing with your blog and social media.
Now ask yourself and answer this: what are the results you want from your blog and social media?
This is where you can use content marketing as a funnel to grow your community.
- I would venture to say that you want to bring traffic over to your blog from social media. Right?
– And, then you want that traffic to turn into readers that want more of your information on a regular basis and come back more to get more valuable information from you.
Content marketing is all of the above…
It’s pull marketing.
You’re attracting and pulling them in with your magnet, based on valuable content that appeals and supports your readers, not spam that interrupts them.
- You understand that your audience wants to be pulled to you. Not pushed.
Great – you now have your content attracting your audience of readers!
What action do you want them to take?
- What do you want them to get out of their experience with you?
You can start turning your readers into valuable raving fans and building your email list so that you can nurture those relationships with more of your invaluable content that they won’t see elsewhere and you know they want more ideas and advice from you that you’ll be giving through your email list.
This is part of your content marketing – you funneling your readers through your system >>> How to Drive Value with Your Social Media Marketing Funnel
From your blog and social media, you’re generating marketing funnel leads.
