Whether you are starting your endeavor into social media marketing for the first time or you’ve been around the block a couple of times, it’s vital to know why social media is so important in relation to your brand’s website. After all, utilizing social media isn’t just something you do, ‘just because;’ there’s a reason for it. Below are a few of the top ways on just how social media will drive traffic to your brand-new website.
And content must always be king. Pay careful attention to the type of content you are posting to your social media platforms while also being aware of the type of content you are creating/commissioning. Not only must the content be aligned with what your audience wants/finds interesting, it must be shareable. That means creating content that will grab your audience’s attention within seconds. Infographics and video content is a great way to do this, but don’t think that the written word is obsolete – far from it. Long-form content is making a comeback in a big way and your audience will certainly read it if you grab their attention. Use a headline that grabs the reader’s imagination and entices them to read more. Hubspot has a solid post on how to write headlines that readers will click on. Post quality, engaging content and others will visit your website to figure out what your brand is all about

Want to get your followers off of your social media platform and onto your website? Post a sale to showcase your services and/or products. Even without a sale, you need to be utilizing social media to show the world what your brand has to offer. Instagram is perfect for this (they’re even building an app just for shopping) as it focuses on imagery to showcase products. From there, merely linkback to your product’s store page on your website so browsers can find out how to buy what you’re advertising all in one click. You must promote visual content on social media, and this is one of the best ways to do exactly that.
The old saying of keeping, ‘friends close but enemies closer,’ doesn’t apply to this post word-for-word, but there’s some truth there: most notably, keeping your competitors close. You need to know exactly what your competitors are doing on social media every single day: that means knowing when they post, the social channels where they have the most followers, the type of content they post, and how much engagement they get from it all. The last part is key, because it will show you exactly what is working for them and what isn’t. Keep an eye on what works for them and what doesn’t, and see if the same tactics work for you. Even if they don’t, you will get a better idea on how to drive more social media traffic to your site.

Never underestimate the power of small, tight-knit communities. Facebook Groups is a godsend for finding these communities, and they truly can play a major part in bringing traffic to your new website. Especially if your brand specializes in a niche where passion is high, you can use these groups to promote your products and/or services and explain to the community why you’re an authority and they need to visit your site. For example, you can find groups that specialize in selling old VHS tapes to other collectors. It’s such a niche market that finding buyers by blindly posting on social media would probably take forever, but because these collectors congregate in Facebook Groups it’s simple to find the right buyer. Get meta with promoting your killer products, services, and more, and there’s no reason why your website won’t see boosts in traffic!
