5. Social Media Marketing Images
When you create marketing images make 2 sizes for each image – one that is Facebook-Sized and one that is Pinterest-sized. Use the Facebook-sized image on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram and Linkedin. Use the Pinterest-sized image on Pinterest and your website or blog. Why your website or blog? Because if you added a Pinterest hover button (which you should, learn how here) your visitor can pin it to their Pinterest boards right from your site. Free marketing because your visitor is sharing your image and website with their Pinterest followers. Win, Win!
6. Be Social
If you are not doing this several times per day, you might as well throw in the towel now. You can toss out your marketing posts 50 times per day or 3 times per day, doesn’t matter. If you don’t share some of your life and your story, you are already losing the social game. The other crucial strategy is to COMMENT and SHARE. 2 very important moves. You comment and share on others posts I guarantee they will return the favor. This also opens up the door for them acting upon your future offers. They trust you now. This is a part of social customer service now, it is called relationship marketing.
