We live in the time and age of the internet. Statistics say the digital population as of April 2020 is almost 4.57 billion people, encompassing 59 percent of the world. So it is only but natural for marketers to leverage this booming opportunity. 

Social Media Marketing is extremely essential for Affiliate Marketing as it helps you pull traffic to your website, engage with your targeted audience, build brand awareness, and generate commission for affiliate marketing. In this article, I am going to be giving out 5 easy tips to drive the above actions that are relevant to your business through social media marketing.

Tip 1. Optimizing the Social Media handles properly

The first step that I’m going to be talking about is making better use of your social media accounts i.e., optimizing it to its fullest potential. For instance, Facebook previously didn’t have the option for you to upload a video on your cover section but now you can so if it’s applicable to your business then you must use it. This is how you’re better optimizing your profile. Another example that I can give you to explain this is when you come to the “about” section of a business profile on Facebook you get to see a little bit and then it shows “more” i.e. you have to click to see more. So that portion of the bio that’s visible should have highly engaging sentences there so that people get curious reading that and click to read more. So basically, in a nutshell optimizing your social media accounts is fully utilizing every feature that is provided. 

Tip 2. Create posts that look good, talk good, and explain well

As we talked about in the earlier article, the content you put out is of supreme importance. Make sure to create and publish posts that are well thought out and well put together. That is when you can grab the attention of your audience and connect with them. There are a lot of ways that you can make your posts attractive like writing your texts in different fonts, designing creative graphics, posting stunning images to go with the text. To do these things you can take the help of various design tools available on the internet (like Canva) or Adobe Spark) and create an awesome post for your blog!

Tip 3. Posts multiple times in a day

Post contents multiple times a day so that your followers have a higher chance of seeing it. Many people often post only once in a day or even once or twice a week but that is a mistake that they make as that way the chances of your content getting noticed becomes less. Post more to get noticed more. To reach your targeted audience, you could also reshare your content though do not go into the mode of spamming. 

Tip 4. Use as many appropriate hashtags as possible

To expand your reach, use as many trending hashtags relevant to the post as possible. Hashtags make it easier to find specific content that your targeted audience that isn’t following you might be looking for. That’s how you reach a lot of people. Hashtags are very necessary and are widely used on all social media platforms. Plus they’re fun to use! Get creative and use as many though appropriate hashtags on your posts!

Tip 5. Build and maintain a relationship with your followers and friends on social media sites

Maintain a relationship with your followers and friends i.e. like and comment on their photos and posts. Try to be visible always so that they notice your posts. Try and become a part of trending topics and conversations. Make sure to respond right away to your followers. Interact and reciprocate that’s how you’ll be able to build and keep a relationship with your relevant audience. Social media is a crowded place. If you’re promoting your blog there are hundred others doing so as well. So what you have to do is stand out from the crowd! Share relevant and relatable content that provides value for your audience.

The above tips are the focal points that you should concentrate on for successful social media marketing. However, you will only be successful if you implement these tips consistently. Here, consistency is key. Be consistent with your efforts and hard work. Even though you won’t see much results, in the beginning, keep at it, you will surely be successful in the long run!
