The basic question is “how will having social media added to my marketing campaign help me?” Well, social media will help you in many different ways. For those of you who have read our previous blogs, you are by now somewhat educated on how the search engines conduct their crawls every few weeks. In the past what used to allow pages to be ranked higher than others was the amount of content, how frequently it was being updated and what type of keywords were being used. Now a day, the search engines are scanning websites and looking for companies that have social media outlets attached to them in addition to content, keywords and being updated regularly. It is simply not enough to create a Facebook Page, Blog and Twitter Account and walk away, the search engines are looking to see if these accounts and social outlets are maintained on a regular basis – they are also looking for the level of engagement that is coming from these sites.
For example, if you post on your Facebook an update with a link and your fans share and like it, then the search engines will pay more attention to your page than a site that has no activity and no content being shared or liked. In addition to the importance of maintaining your page from a search engine perspective, it is also crucial to maintain your social media outlets if you start them. The reason why is simple. Think about what kind of message it sends to potential clients who find your page and discover that you haven’t bothered to update your status or engage with clients in the last six months. Bottom line, it doesn’t look very good. So if you are going to start engaging in social media, make sure you have the time to carry it out or you can find companies like Media Marketing Solution to manage it for you.
