Social media marketing will really only work for your business, if you know what to do, to get the type of result that you want through it. Hence, while social media marketing is not, the only promotional method/strategy, that you can use to profit with your business, if you wish to succeed with it however, the following are some of what you will need to do, in order for it to work for you
- You will need to provide your business with what it would need in terms of time, skills (yours, your employees’ and/or third parties’ through outsourcing), resources, tools, funds, training and expert help (if you need them), in order for you to be able to make as much as you want in your business, through the social media.
If you cannot do this in a big way, you can start small. If you cannot provide some aspect of what your business will need to profit through the social media, you will need to understand how this may affect or impact the results you are likely to get through the social media, and some of the options you may have that could still work for you
- You must do some research before you use the social media, if you wish to profit through it
- You will need to know, what you would need to do, in order for you to be able to get the specific type of results that you want, in your business, through the social media
- You will also need to know and understand too what to do, when you have any issue with generating some sales or income for your business through the social media
- You will also need to know how to make money, more money and some X (that is, some specific) amount of money through the social media, within a specific period of time, in your business
- And will need to know how to make money, more money and some X amount of money too within a specific period of time, in your business. How you generate income or sales through the ad media/methods (the social media etc) that you will be using with your business, is related to and will generally need to work together with, how you will profit in your business.
You can learn more about all these on this blog and on our website, and in The Profit Blueprint.
Before You Use The Social Media
Before you use the social media for the promotion or marketing of your product/service, you should have
- Determined the value that you can provide in your business that will sell
- Chosen a potentially profitable niche to sell to
- Tested the demand for your business idea/value
- Defined a uniqueness for the value and/or product or service that you will be providing in your business
- Determined how much it would potentially cost you, to make X amount (that is, a specific amount of money) with your idea/value as a product/service, with your business, within a specific period of time.
- Determined if you can afford to set up and run your business, selling your idea/value as a product/service within that specific period of time
You will need to do this in order to be able to determine
- The type of products/services that you can sell, that will be potentially profitable for you
- The type of content, offers and ads that you will need to create or ask others to create for your business, that you can use to promote your products/services effectively through any of the ad media/methods (including the social media) that you may choose to use in your business, in order to make the sale
You can do all of the above (that is, determine the value you can provide etc) by yourself and with the help of your employees and/or third parties (through outsourcing). You will need to do each one of the above if you wish to succeed with your business, and with any promotional method or ad medium (including the social media), that you would want to use with your business.
In other words, you should ideally not promote your products, services or business on the social media (or on/with any ad medium/method) without doing some research first
- On how potentially profitable your business idea and product is, and
- The value that you will need to sell to make money in your business
If you have not done these yet with your business, you can do so now with the help of The Profit Blueprint. You can generally apply and implement the profit steps and solutions as outlined in The Profit Blueprint on any type of business, idea or niche in order to determine
- The value you should provide that will sell
- How potentially profitable your business idea is
- If you can afford to set up and run your chosen business, idea or product within a specific period
- And much more …
Research Where Your Targets Are
You will need to do some research, in order to know where your targets are on the social media sites, and in order for you to know the social media sites, that you can use to connect and engage with your targets.
Determine How You Will Generate Some Sales
You will need to determine how you will generate some sales for your business through the social media.
You may either choose to get some potential customers for your business directly by yourself (and/or with the help of your employees), or by networking with other businesses, organizations and/or individuals who may market or promote your products/services through joint ventures, partnerships etc with your business. You may opt to use both of these too for your business, if you want.
How you will use both of these options to profit in your business are related but not the same, you can learn more about this, on this blog.
Know How To Use The Social Media Sites
Different types of social media sites have some similarities and some differences too, you will need to know how to use the social media sites that you may have opted to use with your business specifically, in order for you to be able to get, some good results through your social media marketing efforts.
You can get your employees to use your chosen or selected social media sites for your business. You may also choose to outsource some or all of your promotions on the social media to third parties.
Set Up Some Tracking Codes
You will need to track the results that you will be getting through the social media, in order to profit and/or make more money through it. You will need to set up some tracking codes with your promotions in order to do this. You will need to know the number of customers, subscribers and visitors that you are getting through the social media, now and over time, in your business.
You will need to use your website, ads and sales tracking software/system, and the analytics tools that the social media sites may provide together, in order to get some good idea of
- What may or may not be working for your business on the social media and
- What you may need to do to make more money, or some substantial amount of revenue or income, through the social media
Resolving The Issues You May Have With The Social Media
You can resolve some of the issues that you may have with generating some sales and revenue through the social media
- With some of the free information that are available on this blog and

- By getting some professional/expert help for your social media campaigns and your business, either through your employees or third parties (that is, through outsourcing).

You may or may not be able to deal with some of the issues you may have in your business with the social media, by yourself. You may or may not also be able to determine what your business need to profit through the social media, all by yourself too. Hence you may need to get some additional help, by learning from others about what you need to profit and/or by seeking some help through your employees, or other third parties (through outsourcing), in order for you to profit in your business.
Most businesses underestimate how much they will need to work, and the efforts, time, skills, resources and money, they will need to commit to social media marketing, in order for it to work and provide them with the type of results that they want, in their businesses, in terms of profits.
Trying to find some shortcut or some other way around this, will really only prolong how long it may take you to profit, or to make some substantial amount of revenue/income through the social media.
If you truly wish to succeed with social media in your business, you should ideally just find out, or determine what you need to do to profit with it, and simply do it, this is what will help you and your business, it is really the only way you can ensure that you will be able to get the type of results that you want, through the social media in your business.
Social media marketing is not a pushbutton marketing strategy or tactic, you will actually need to know what you are doing, what you should do and how to work at it, in order for you to be able to, get the type of result that you want, in terms of profits, through the social media, in your business.
