Selling In Social Media
Have you ever pondered how you can make money from social media, I mean really thought about it? Not just in the way of what product it is that you want to sell or how many people who you have in your network to sell to, but actually thought about the many different characteristics of social selling? Who does your target audience consist of? Why are they following you? What can you provide to your audience to increase your own social media value and possibly get others to buy-in to your concepts because of the usefulness of your content?
With so many questions to answer when thinking about the characteristics of your followers, potential prospects and customers, you must always remember that branding is the most important part of social selling. When I refer to branding, not only do I mean your logo and your company or organizational name but I am also referring to how you communicate with your audience which is essentially the most important part.

So What Do I Mean By This?
——-> (Keypoint) Often times I find that people who have no tweeting strategy often have a mix of personal and professional tweets. This type of Twitter audience engagement is inconsistent and confusing… a complete and utter waste of time. Most importantly, if you do not know your audience or know your followers, you will start to see people “unsubscribing” to your Twitter following.
——-> (Article Excerpt) “Much like a tiger in the jungle or a Lion on the plains of Africa, social media is an untamed beast that has a native characteristic for cornering or putting the ‘squeeze’ on most businesses that do not know how to approach the subject matter within their industry.”
So really, you believe that you are serving yourself in social media, but in all actuality you are serving others. By doing so, you are increasing or posturing your strategic position once you have a solid following and a reputation for being one of the most resourceful tweeters for selling.
