Success with Social Media
By using Social Media, you have access to a vast audience whom you would never have been able to network with. I learned that it is vital to connect with your networkers personally and to engage in such a way that they gain trust in you, become loyal to you and vice versa. It is not just about reaching out to your networks; it is also about drawing their attention. I found that this is the secret to Social Media Marketing. It is all about branding yourself powerfully, in making yourself visible to your audience and placing your product in front of the large group of networkers. This is the key to making money online. Differentiating yourself places you ahead of your competitors and shows that you are willing to help your networkers where necessary, and this is another very important factor. Sharing all ideas, both yours and your fellow networkers’, is what brings success.
It is important to remember that you are not only selling a product. More importantly, you are selling yourself. Make sure to do this in a professional manner, by proving that you are capable of working with others and in a way, which can never be forgotten, before trying to sell your product. Remain engaged with your fellow networkers and decide who your target market will be. Interaction with your networkers will eventually start paying off in a positive manner. You will soon know whom you can target in a respectful and trusted manner without being too forward. Getting to know your market, realizing it’s needs and where you can offer your services, is the key to achieving growth of your business.
I have learned that to be a trusted and respectful influencer to your networkers, you have to be visible on all the Social Networks. One wrong move can be very damaging to both yourself and your business. I started out in Belgium working with Freddie Cerva, based in Cyprus, helping him in his Internet Marketing Business. I knew very little about Social Media marketing on the Internet, and soon found myself engaging and communicating with people I did not even know and building on long-term business relationships. I realized that for us to be successful, we needed to become visible and communicate with our networkers regularly. Opportunities started heading my way, which I was not prepared to miss out on. Social Media started opening up many different avenues in Marketing and Relationship Management.
Today, through my magnificent networks and ventures, I am not only Partnering with Freddie Cerva in FC Advance Solutions Ltd., an international company providing Internet marketing for both small and large businesses, I also have established other business ventures.
I am the Global Liaison partner for Lybethras Swimwear, responsible for marketing and setting up agencies worldwide.
I represent Ron Dayan of Piccadilly Designs, an International Interior Designer to The Rich and Famous in Beverly Hills, marketing him on a global stage.
Using Social Media marketing in a professional and trusted manner will eventually help your business, allowing you to exceed all your expectations. It is up to you how you too can make it happen! Success to you all!
