What do you think? Are some social media better at helping you make sales than others? Which ones work in which circumstances?

In my opinion social media is more of a device to enhance engagement and increase the "Know, Like, and Trust" factor. It is a HUGE time sink no matter how you cut it.

 

Unless you are using it as an ad source by buying ads on it to make sales.

 

Using social media is like using Google, if they make a change it can VERY adversely effect your income. I know several people who use Facebook and have built very large groups. Whether this equates to more money on the bottom line is questionable. Very large companies have spent a sizable money to study whether it had a difference in their sales and the results weren't positive from what I last saw. This is why most larger companies use social media for a customer support outreach more than anything else.

 

One mistake people make is they don't follow the lead of others who have spent the money and time to work whatever system. People have sold goods and services for years without social media. The trick is to find someone in your niche who is using it and monetizing it then do what they are doing, model them. It is usually a case of hiring a VA or outsource your social media to free you up for other activities. Hence the emergence of the "Social Media Managers" who have popped up in recent years.

 

How you do it will be determined by your product and service offering. I know one successful technique is to use a pinned post in Facebook to sell your stuff. i have been studying the tactics to see if it would be worthwhile to do something with it myself. You have to have a good plan before sinking a lot of time into to it and just try to "shotgun" an approach. The techniques all vary wildly depending on if you are an affiliate or product owner.

 

Another mistake I see people doing in a LOT of different stuff besides social media is to try to master them all at once and fail miserably. My best advice is to pick one to start and master it until you see a profit, figure out how to automate it, then move to another one and do the same.

Social media is definitely a good tool to gain attention. But how much effective it can be depends on the way you project your services/goods. A poor presentation can work as a deterrent ,while  apositive ,carefully projected image of your goods/services can work wonders.

I think that when you find a sweet spot your conversions can be insanely high vs. other kinds of traffic.

Finding that sweet spot without wasting tons of time and not running into problems with the terms of any specific platform is where the challenge exists.

I've always had really good results monetizing a facebook site for a program that I was promoting.  I like to start FB groups and invite various people I know of in the industry to participate. The word then spreads fast and I always figure out ways to make a few extra bucks with the buzz.

I think it does well in keeping a particular service or product buzzworthy.  This can help with royalties or residuals.  People will comment and share all day!

Of course! If you are not working on this, you are leaving money on the table for others to grab.

They Help me very much.
I get to meet like- minded people

and only then begin Networking.

It's the best way to brand yourself. Let people
know who you are.

All the best success to your advertising and
Socializing.

Advertising on social media seems to be a waste of time.  It seems the people in my social circle only want to talk about themselves.   Maybe that's why it's called "social"  B)

Advertising on social media seems to be very hit and miss, more MISS than anything. As the term depicts, it is SOCIAL media not so much advertising media

The trick to getting signup s and sales with social media is NOT to promote your product but to present a product or service that will help other people market their product.  Everyone in the FACEBOOK groups already is advertising their special thing.  Your job is to offer help and assisstance to them to get what the want.  Everyone is looking for the "What is in it for me>  If you have a marketing system, a software product or even an article or ebook that helps them then you have a winner.  Otherwise you are blowing your time and energy. and money.

I agree 100%!

 

The key is to present a product or service that help others get what they need and want. :)
