Creating Profiles in Social Media

Creating your profile or brand in social media is an important way for people to know you.   One of the easiest ways to establish your reputation and build exposure is to make contact with other like-minded people through the use of social media. 

Whether you are new to working online or not, how you create your profile in social media will directly impact your success online.  My favorite social media platform, of course, is Facebook. It is easy to use and it’s a world-wide marketing tool that will help you become known, liked and trusted – the three most important factors in marketing.

Why do I prefer Facebook for my social media activity?  It’s probably the most recognized logo in the world (except, quite possibly the golden arches of McDonald’s :). If you use it correctly and set yourself up as real, you’ll be someone who people want to associate with.  Do not use it correctly and you’ll be brushed off as an annoyance.

Whichever social media platform you prefer and whether your account is a personal (just for posting to family or friends) or a business account (used primarily for online marketing), there are certain guidelines to keep in mind:

  • If you want to be approachable, use a profile photo that is really you.
  • When you make posts consider your target audience and how they will react to what shows up in their news feed.
  • Your timeline defines you. For example as a marketer, posts about goals, creating your dreams and a positive mindset will attract like-minded marketers.
  • Never speak negatively about people or companies.

It is important to associate and connect with people in the same niche as you. People will associate with others who will like and comment on their posts, then they will share, like and comment on your posts.  This activity shows up in the news feeds seen by their friends and associates, increasing your visibility.

Engaging people will increase your popularity (i.e. your brand – you).  As you become known and trusted, posts you make will be noticed, clicked on and followed.  What is the benefit of building your presence online?  When you do promote an offer or opportunity, it will be seen by your followers, their friends and their followers and people from all over the world.

Every action we take needs to take us closer to reaching our goals (business or personal).  The best ways to accomplish any success, is to continually be recognizing opportunities and even creating your own opportunities.  This is nowhere more true than online with social media.

Blogging: A Great Marketing Tool

When adding new posts or updating blogs, you need to add good content.

  • Always make it fresh and up-to-date. In this way, search engines will include your site in their directory listings. When your blog is listed in the different search engines, you will increase traffic to your site without paying for it.

Many people read more than one blog on a regular basis and once your ranking improves, the traffic to your blog will increase. Maintain your blog with relevant updated content and you will gain a following of loyal subscribers and readers who will begin to like and trust you.

How to Start Blogging and Stick With it

Having positive thoughts produces positive results. Never say “wish me luck” or “hope this works” and if I had my way, we would remove these phrases from our vocabulary. It is not about having “luck” or “wishing”, it’s about taking action and believing in yourself. Let’s blog.

Blogging is a sure way to promote yourself or your brand. Blogging requires an individual to first get a domain name and a blog host. This is followed by creating a blogging avenue such as WordPress. Once this is achieved, embark on a journey of formulating content that will add value to your followers. Let us now divulge more information about how to start blogging and stick with it.

Decide your topic

Blogging requires focus and a prior plan. It is crucial to decide on the topics you will blog about. Understand your short-term and long-term blogging goals with regards to the topics you write about. Have a clear purpose that communicates what you intend to write during the first few months of blogging as well as the rest of the blogging period.

Create visual content

The photos, images and other graphics that you integrate in your blogging endeavors can either undermine or magnify blogging. Have unique images and photos that make your posts stand out. To access quality visual content, do the research and find a site that provides stock photos, royalty-free images that you can use.

Build your list

Creating and increasing a mailing list is fundamental to success in marketing when starting and sustaining blogging. A mailing list enables a blogger to share posts with followers and increase interaction with visitors. This also helps in generating traffic for the new blog as opposed to entirely depending on search engines.

Blog often

Once you have decided your niche and want to prove yourself, blogging demands consistency. Do not just write a few posts and be contented. If you want to attract and keep up followers and appear on search engines, you have to write posts frequently.

Use other social network platforms

Blogging successfully involves sharing the content through social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and even LinkedIn. Sharing the blog posts with your network of followers through these platforms increases visibility to other people. This increases traffic for your blog by attracting more visitors.

The First Step: Get Started

WELCOME!

I’ve learned a great many things that have helped me grow and have success, easily. On the other hand, I have also learned a lot of things the hard way, by trial and error.  Why am I sharing what I’ve learned?  Because it’s Noteworthy and you can take it away, use as needed, benefit from from my experience and be heard above the noise.

It’s tempting to take the easy road at times. It’s even easier to just put something off altogether and say, “next time”.  We procrastinate saying, “I’ll do it tomorrow”, or “I’ll do more the next time.”  And what happens?  Tomorrow and next time come, and we put it off yet again.

Having a partner on your team it the best way to help you keep your eye on the “bigger” picture and stay focused.  A partner will help you with your training, provide motivation and keep you going in the right direction. Working with others helps you to gain information as you learn what works for them and what does not. Part of doing research is to check things out and see what other people have to say. You never want to spend your time on something that will not bring you value or be able to be used for your success. You’ll never get that time back.

I know it’s a proud moment when you can say, “I did it all by myself!”. It shows you have strength and determination.  But as we all know, its human nature to postpone things that are challenging, and it’s at these times more than ever, you need a partner to help as they share their ideas and strategies. Making sure you have a coach or partner in your circle of peers to help you stay accountable and keep you taking action.

Always keep in mind the importance of creating a plan. Set your goals and plan your ideal future, whether it be building a successful business, improving your financial situation, optimizing your health, etc.; and keep in mind that you will succeed by surrounding yourself with people who believe in you and in your success.

To YOUR Success!
