8 Ways Social Media Helps Your Internet Presence

Author: Sofia Sapojnikova

Your website isn't working. It isn’t getting the traffic you want or the business you need. It is time to make the move to social media. Social Media Marketing (SMM) and Social Media Optimization (SMO) are two important social media components. They are vital tools for any website today - whether it's floundering or thriving.

The approach and exact methods you use vary drastically based on your business size and demographics. However, two things remain constant - getting relevant inbound hyperlinks to your target site as well as driving new and increased impressions for a brand. Here are some of the immediate benefits.

Traffic from the Social Network

Traffic is great for major websites where the business model is based on site session numbers, page views advertising impressions and CPC models. Major media websites can benefit greatly from social media as leveraging social news sites can deliver thousands upon thousands of relatively targeted users to a site. Traffic can come directly from very targeted points of the social network for bursts and/or for long periods of time depending on the approach.

Brand Impressions

Impressions are a result of traffic and more unique sessions on a website. Various forms of social media can drive consistent brand impressions and exposure through targeted communities. There are ways to achieve impressions quickly and also to draw impressions out over the long term for very effective brand awareness campaigns. The more impressions your brand has, the more opportunities for customers and business you have.

Viral Word of Mouth

If you develop “killer content” it’s likely that your content, once promoted and found, will move virally through the initial Social Networks, and further on by email, instant messaging and word of mouth to other Internet users. This is tremendously powerful to have content go viral, as users don’t feel that the information is being pushed at them, but more, it was referred to them by a trusted friend in a trusted network.

Links

Links are critical to Search Engine Optimization (SEO). As such, some social media campaigns should be viewed as part of an SEO strategy. Google and other search engines weigh the value of each link and the overall composition of those links as they relate to your website. The more links pointing back to your site, the better. The more targeted the anchor text, the better. The great part about leveraging social media is that these links appear completely natural to the search engines. They are not purchased or paid links but are naturally developed by users discovering and seeing your valuable content and then linking back to it.

Traffic from the Links

As a result of the links formed from your content going viral, a successful campaign will often continue to deliver targeted traffic from the links acquired. This traffic is pretty much set in stone for as long as the link remains live. Many times the links are built in targeted industry sites and blogs and end up being archived and remaining live on the web indefinitely.

Tagging and Bookmarking

Good content, when properly distributed in targeted social networks will in many cases be tagged by users who have accounts in those networks. Tags end up being revisited by friends of those users who originally tagged the content, but also will show up in social network site searches. The more users you have tagging your content the better over the long term.

Community Popularity

Building community around your brand by leveraging the various social media websites and employing the tools and API’s offered is important. If you are able set up, participate and add value for other members in a community, you’ve engaged in true social media work. This takes dedication to participate in a meaningful and creative way, however the return on attraction to your brand is unparalleled.

Reputation Management

Social Networks have become a powerful tool for reputation management which is a crucial point in brand marketing. Being first to control a targeted URL or Profile set-up on a major social network can be of endless benefit to your brand over the long term. With this action, marketers have better reach and control over brand dialogue.
These are 8 benefits social media can offer you. There are many more. Marketing experts say this is the new frontier. So what are you waiting for? Take your time and consider your social media set-up carefully. Then get out there and participate - the rewards are well worth any risk.
