Plan and write blog posts based on the list of popular content topics for the month, then make sure you promote these on social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and LinkedIn in January. You’ll never wonder what to write about or promote again.
I also find it helpful to track my stats as it motivates me to see how far I’ve come over the past few months and years. Put in your stats at the beginning of January, then set goals for where you want to be by the end of January 2020.
If you fill in your growth goals you will know what to focus on and can do your best to reach those goals by the end of the month.
The easiest and most effective way to market on social media
If you’ve written a blog post or created a product, people won’t know about it unless you tell them. They will rarely come back to check what’s new, but they will often come back if they see something on social media that gets their attention or reminds them of you.
I truly believe that social media marketing should be a priority for you in 2020 if you plan to grow your business. I’ve grown my blog traffic by 275% in the past 90 days by focusing on social media and promoting some posts and pins.
If you’re setting up your social media accounts or need to revamp them, then you can find all the best social media image sizes for Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube in this article. If you just want a quick up-to-date reference table, then see my tool for the social media image sizes for all of these accounts and paper sizes too.
Here’s the easiest and most effective social media marketing strategy I use to increase traffic, bring visitors back to the site, and to sell my products:
STEP 1: Create or revamp relevant content
I publish blog posts about topics that are popular right now or that will be popular within the next 3 months. I try to get out at least one new post per week. You’ll find a list of trending and upcoming topics on the social media planner calendar.
I also take older blog posts with relevant content and update them. I try to do one of these a week too. I also add links in those blog posts to my other relevant posts, so Google knows they are related and understands how my content fits together.
STEP 2: Create as many graphics as possible
Create a lot of graphics for each post. Honestly, I’ve found that the more you can make the better.
You can make a great featured image, graphics to include in the post, graphics of your freebies and/or lead magnets, infographics, and lots of pins (scroll down to the end of this post to see how many I have just for this post). Images are your friend on social media as these are visual platforms!
Keep your graphics consistent with your brand, so people ‘recognize’ you as they spot you on social media. Put your logo on pictures so if people see your images, they will know where to find you even if the link to your site has been lost somewhere on its cyber journey.
If you haven’t nailed down your brand yet, fill one it in with things like your standard brand colors and fonts. It will save you tons of time when creating graphics and designs. Once you get some practice, you’ll be able to create lots of graphics quite quickly and easily.
STEP 3: Schedule out your social media content
Tools To Schedule Social Media Content
MeetEdgar is a small female-owned business, just like mine (I love supporting small businesses whenever I can).
You can use Edgar to pull in all your blog posts (old and new) and upload any other content in one sitting. You then schedule them out to all your social media in one sitting. Don’t worry, there’s an Edgar university and tutorials to show you how to use the tool, plus they often have live sessions to schedule social media content together and answer any questions you might have. This is another reason I love it when owners are involved in their business.
Edgar the octopus also creates different versions of your posts to repurpose your content several times and in different ways. This means you get bang for your buck because you can use the same post several times without creating new content for it (big time saver and gets you more traffic). It then posts this content when each account is most active to get the highest engagement.
Edgar works on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
You can find the best social media image sizes using this handy little guide I put together for you. Another popular post to check out is the most popular hashtags for Instagram.
I grew my Pinterest account a lot in 2019 and this social media marketing platform brings great traffic to this blog. It’s much faster than waiting for organic traffic from Google, trust me. You might have even found me on Pinterest ????
I use Tailwind to schedule all my pins, which can be scheduled as far in advance as you want. This makes life much easier than trying to manually pin or upload content. Tailwind also shows you how to schedule pins once you’re in the dashboard. If you use my affiliate link (Tailwind) you will get one month free to try out the service. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try help.
