- Social Media Modules:(like the ones you see on the right side of the screen on this page)
- We install the top 5 social media icons on your site (Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google+, Pinterest) which will allow your website visitors to 'like' and 'recommend' and 'tweet' your website to their own circle of friends and colleagues.
- This does not mean you have to have your own social media accounts! It will simply allow your website visitors (who DO have social media) to 'like' and 'recommend' your website to their own social media pages!
- Cost = $275.00 (one time fee)
The term 'Social Media' encompasses all those websites that we've all heard of and which some have taken to like a duck to water and some have avoided like the plague! I'm going to briefly outline what they all are and try to relate them to old fashioned methods that we used to use (not that long ago!) , what they do and then explain the importance of interacting with them now.
Starting from about the year 2000 when (largely the younger generation) used 'My Space' to communicate with their friends and their friends of friends. They did this by logging into the website, typing their message and uploading their photos and voila, everyone that was in their list could see their message, and comment on it so it was kind of like a group conference call with all your friends but in 'text & images' rather than voice. So, here is a (really simple) breakdown of what the big 5 platforms are:
That's the big point here, even if you are not into this stuff, the rest of the world is so you need to pay attention and try and keep up with these changes!
Facebook will allow you to add your friends to your list and keep in touch with them. Now whether you do this on an hourly basis, a daily basis, a weekly basis, or a monthly basis or less is up to you
One of the simplest ways to start getting people to 'follow' your twitter posts, is to search twitter for like minded people who have a large following and 'follow them'. How does this work? Lets say you are into photography, you would search Twitter for people in that category and when you see someone who has a following of lets say 20,000 followers, you will 'follow them'. This person is then told that you are now following them and is given the option to also follow you in return. When they do this, all of their 20,000 followers are told that this photographer is now following you and a number of them will think "well if HE likes this new person, I probably will also!" , so they will follow you as well.
