Social Relations

Search, Optimize, and Converse for Social Media Success!

Social Media is all about building relationships, making your brand human and more personal.

As Jay Baer puts it,
“Social media allows big companies to act small again.”

This very concept is how SocialMedia305 came about.
It’s a triumphant story of a company created 100% by accident.

The Glorious Accident that is SocialMedia305

Originally started as a Financial Content Company, SocialMedia305 began “testing” Twitter in Miami. CEO John Mahoney discovered that, with some ninja Wall Street sales techniques and a Public Relations approach, he could grow a massive Twitter following in record time.

John got to work introducing as many people to each other through social media as possible. SocialMedia305 continues that vision, promoting local events, producing local events, and consulting with brands.

Social Media is about conversations,
“Look at social media as a telephone with a built in phone book!” ~John Mahoney

Social Media Marketing is powerful, because you have access to converse with so many people!

And not just converse, but engage, learn, and expand! Remember conversations are a two-way street of give and take.

Does having a “conversation” truly produce results?

Talk about massive exposure!
People are so over inauthentic advertising. Building online communities is the way to turn your marketing and brand around.

Reaching out to your social media networks starts with the look of your page.

  • Optimize those profiles and make it easy for people to see who you are and what you’re about.

Next, it’s time to GROW!

  • Who is your target audience? Search for your keywords, follow others in your field, connect and engage.

Prioritize and Organize

  • Once you have your fans, followers, and contacts, you will need a way to organize and avoid the chaos.

Sites like Simplist can help you create awesome lists from your keywords and organize your contacts into categories that make sense. This will keep you organized and on top of your social media game.

Why Go Social?

Business is Business, right? Why take the time to socialize?   Here’s Why… 500 million tweets are sent each day. 75% of engagement on a Facebook post happens in the first 5 hours. Over 20 billion photos have already been shared on Instagram. And, 23% of Pinterest users are on at least once a day.

Social Media is where the people are!

Social media has taken over the online marketing world and the benefits reach far beyond sharing your products and services. Social Media Marketing:

  •  Improves brand awareness
  • Increases your website traffic
  • Builds trust & loyalty

And, yes,

  • Translates to more business

Making social media marketing a priority for your business, allows you to reach a larger, yet more targeted audience. It is all about the bigger picture, long-term brand commitment. Social Media connects people and takes “word of mouth” advertising to a whole new level. It’s about building your “tribe.”

“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea… A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.” ~Seth Godin

Share interests with your audience, connect, and communicate. Do this, and you will develop a loyal customer base that will promote your message and services without even being asked.

What’s your favorite social media network for business marketing and why?

Let us know in the comments! Let’s blow up those networks!
