Whether it’s Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or even Snapshot, social media can be a viable way to increase traffic to your website or blog.

Plan of Action

Like anything else you want to plan things out first in order to maximize your results. Done the right way, much can be gained by attracting visitors daily to your website or blog.

One of the easiest things to do on any social media site is to ensure your website address or URL is visible to others.

Not only will you get more visitors to your site, but you will appear professional, thereby inspiring trust in you and your business.  social media traffic

It’s also important to share your posts multiple times throughout the year on multiple social media platforms. It helps to track your posts to determine which performed best. One option is to use UTM (Urchin Tracking Module) tracking, where you add small tags to your links which then feeds information to Google Analytics.

Also, whenever you get questions from people on social media refer them to your website or blog for the answers. For example, if you get a question about your product or service, refer them to your product or information page. Just think a bit creatively, as any information your customer or prospect may need can most likely be found on your site.

Place some Call To Actions (CTAs) within your posts so visitors know what to do next. You can request that they comment or share on another social media site, or simply direct them to “Visit Now”. Many social media sites have buttons for these CTAs already in place.

You can also optimize your social media profiles by ensuring that your bios, about page and overall profiles are complete. Also add in numerous keywords into your Biographies and About Pages.  When you link to your site from social media, you create some high quality back links to your site, which increases your website’s SEO.
