Social signals have become the norm for recruitment through the social networking engagement and where you need to be front and center to take advantage of the wave, ” sort of speak “.
This strategy of social signals and social networks not only increases the exposure of your brand it also allows you to connect with your target market and provide you with hungry prospects to your website or blog.
Now Facebook has a Search Engine capability where you can find your audience by doing a search like you normally would do in Google, Yahoo, Bing or any other search engine which makes it a very powerful and profitable social signal for every business.
It is important to note that there are rules and certain requirements when using Facebook’s PPC – Paid marketing strategy. They are very particular about the Text percentage of the Ad Photo. They only allow 20% of the photo to be text.
Facebook paid marketing is still an affordable marketing tactic used by many entrepreneurs and one you should explore before it gets to expensive to place ads like Google Adwords for example.
The only time you would use Google Adwords is after you find a very successful marketing campaign in other platforms like Facebook or Bing or Yahoo because it is very competitive and keywork clicks can go for as much as $50 a click for some high competition keyword terms.
Social Networking through videos if used properly and implement a few SEO strategies like making sure that you use great keywords on your video file name, the Title of your video on Youtube, add keywords to the description of your video and keywords in the tags.
The tabs directly below your videos when signed in to your account allow you to edit these areas except the file name which you should do on your computer before uploading the video to Youtube or any other video submission site like Vimeo or Technorati among many others available to you.
Using Google+ requires social networking meaning you have to engage with your audience and provide them with high level of quality content and information they are searching for as well.
You can also use their search browser to find your specific market groups which you should join and participate in. Some of these market groups are free to join and others require acceptance from the webmaster who create the group or their designated account managers in some cases.
Something else important to use in these social media sites is the use of # ( Hashtags ) which for the moment are used like keyword tags in the search engines and allows your audience to find your content throughout the internet world.
If you offer something that could help your audience in your particular market let your audience know through well researched and thoughtful content with the intent of really helping people and you will have more fun doing it too because you will notice the support and appreciation of your audience.
Twitter is another powerful social signal and while for most of the time until recently you only had 140 characters to express your message now they have added photos and videos to their platform and as a result it has increased the viewership of content and response of active users of Twitter.
Social networking should be also implemented when tweeting your message and just like all other social media sites you must provide quality content and use of Hashtags as well so readers will find your targeted message.
Here is a tip from Matt Cutts about social media sites: Are pages from social media sites ranked differently?
Share images on other social signals like Instagram, Pinterest and Flickr. Convert your content into videos and upload to Youtube and other video submission sites, or create a slide show to share on a social sharing sites like Slideshare.
