Thank you for visiting Book Marketing and Promotion Ideas to learn more about Social Media Platforms. You will find a list of the 80 most popular social media platforms. You will find the top list of social media platforms here for you to gather information about which social media account would be perfect fit for you and/or your business. The top list of the most popular social media platforms and websites will show how many users each social media platform has and a small description of what type of social media platform they are.
Here is a small explanation about what social media platforms and websites are all about if you have never been involved with social media before. Social media platforms and websites are interactive computer websites that enable you to create and share your content, information, ideas, picture, videos, career interests and other forms of expression through virtual communities where you participate in social networking. Social media platforms and websites you have joined and participate in help you gain traffic to your own website you have created for yourself, your business, and your book. Don't forget your customers are on social media too.
Successful authors use social media to network with other authors, agents, editors, publishing houses and even their fans. Not sure how to use social media for yourself. Research your favorite authors and see how they use social media. This is why you should be using social media platforms and websites for yourself. Do your research first and write everything down you want and like about their social media accounts. Your list will become very important as you begin to work on your social media accounts. Remember, you can't belong to all of the social media platforms or websites out there, pick a few that are suitable for your book that you can devote your time and attention too. Start there and if you have more time in the day you can add one more, then do so.
Why should I use social media and/or social media marketing for my business website and book? This was the question I had to ask myself first. I found the answer to that exact question. Here is the answer - Social media and social media marketing will help you build a meaningful relationship across all social media platforms to use to promote your business and/or book. Social media marketing is the most versatile and cost-effective method for you to use. Well, that says it all! Of course, I am going to use all of the social media websites that suit my business and genre of book. Then, I am going to promote the heck out of them. With a new business and a new book, I have to get them noticed as soon as I can. I have to them out into cyberspace so I can find those customers who are looking for my book but can't find it yet? This is exciting! I am now getting closer to that first sale. I can sniff the money coming in. Can't you? Not so fast, you can go broke if you do not figure out how you are going to market and promote your business and/or book. Always look for FREE ways to market and promote first. Then selectively use the PAID services offered from social media marketing you have developed in you marketing and promotional plan.
Social media marketing is when you use social media platforms and websites to promote your products or services. It plays a vital role in the promotion of you brand online, over time it will boost sales, can increase brand recognition, and can help with search engine rankings. With valuable content within the pages of the body of your website pertaining to that page only is used to attract a new audience and to drive up your audience engagement. This is where you can direct hundreds of thousands of visitors to your website by using social media correctly and effectively. When used correctly, social media marketing can bring unbelievable success to your brand and your website.
Today, social media marketing has become more popular and is growing strong every year. Social media marketing is the way to go. Be unique, stand out, tell your brand's story. Think out of the box. You want to build your online presence but you also want to get the most out of your advertising budget. When posting about your book or yourself make sure you post 6 to 10 pictures or articles about something else that you like. Nobody wants to follow you if you are constantly bragging about your book.
Social media offers many benefits to authors, it allows the author to reach their audience in real-time, connect with them, engage with them, and also most importantly to gain the attention of other readers who did not know about your book. You want those new readers too! Social media is where you gain massive exposure with just one click of the button. It can happen overnight or it can take some time to be recognized on the internet. BE PATIENT! I had a hard time learning to be patient. Remember, what you put into your social media platform and websites is what you get out of them. You do very little effort, expect very little effort back. You get the drift.
Regardless, the size of the social media site you pick, it is very important to consider whether your brand's target audience is active on those sites. The sites you choose to use for your marketing and promoting platform should be what you like and are interested in. So, you can't go wrong with your own decision. In my list, I have included how many visitors each social media site receives in order to help you choose which social media site you may need.
Below are the Social Media websites that I already work with. These are the websites I would suggest you start with first if you don't already have them. All of the social media sites will guide you through their process they have set up for newbies who have just joined their site. So Good Luck!
