Have a specific strategy and content for each site – You cannot generalize all social media sites. Every site has different concept, content and structure for example Facebook is a friendship platform where one can network and chat with family & friends, on the other hand, Twitter is a micro blogging site, where you follow people and things of your interest. Pinterest and Instagram is entirely image sharing site while LinkedIn is a professional networking site. So what works on Facebook may not work on LinkedIn, that’s why having separate plan and content for each social networking site is recommended.
Put social sharing buttons on your blog/website – Once you published quality content and shared it on social networking sites, people will start visiting your site and if they like the content, they will share it in their circle. So be prepared in advance with social sharing buttons, you will get good exposure with them.
Engage with others – Unless you are a famous celebrity, you have to engage with others and build relationships; even some of the celebrities also do it. Posting interesting content with a link to your website, replying to messages, starting a conversation and liking and commenting on other relevant things are some of the small things which go a long way.
Advertising – If you are looking for a quick solution, advertising can help. You can extend your reach and find relevant audience by boosting your post in Facebook, sponsor stories; Facebook ads, etc are some other options. On twitter you can promote tweets, account and trends; likewise you can also put ads on LinkedIn and stumbleupon.
