Social Media Etiquette

Postby vzerbee » Sat Jan 23, 2016 5:53 pm

Social media is more about being social than selling, and yet people make buying decisions based on friends' referrals and testimonials they read about on social media.

If we are using social media in our affiliate marketing, does it make sense to share more story type posts that include stories about people having a problem and getting it solved? And should we refrain from putting a direct affiliate marketing link in a social media post? Rather focus on a sharing a helpful blog article?

Any other good ideas using social media to get more exposure?

the key here is to create value in your posts to others to get them to go to your site for more info.

you can use stories, images, news, ect...

then just lead them back to your site and make everything low key so you are just giving them info and helping them... you want your people to like you so that they click the links and buy the stuff you tell em to buy and do the stuff you tell them to do.

Thanks Marcus. That makes a lot of sense. I like the idea of helping people first.
