How would you like to get visible online so people are telling you that they see you everywhere they go?
That should be your goal. You should be leaving your virtual footprint everywhere you go! So just how do you go about doing that? There are lots of ways.
First, are you crystal clear about your niche?
Do you know who your ideal customer is, what their problems are and how you can help them? If not, you had better find out. If you don’t know your audience, how will you know how to serve them?
Next you need to know your expertise within that niche.
For example, I am in the beginner internet marketing niche. I teach new internet marketers who want to build an internet business how to get started online and how to do marketing to get free traffic to their blogs and websites. Frankly, I’m very good at it, but my expertise is teaching you how to get comfortable with WordPress so growing your business is easier and your marketing efforts get results!
Now you will want to start working on that virtual foot print so you will get visible online. So just how do you do that? There are a gazillion ways. The most important trick is to do something every single day to leave your mark.
Are you on Facebook and Twitter?
Do you post and tweet something valuable to your friends and followers several times every day? You don’t have to live on social media to accomplish this, that’s what social media management tools like HootSuite are all about. You’ve told me that you don’t know what to say on social media, so here’s an idea that will help you to get conversations started.
First you need to make sure you are writing relevant and useful content on your blog. Then you’ll want be sure to tell your social media audience about it. Tweet little bits of your blog posts with a link back to the post and put excerpts of it on Facebook.
After you’ve published your blog post, then turn it into an article on the article directories.
My personal favorite directory that has given me the greatest exposure is Submit Your Articles.
You can also record yourself reading your article on a mini-podcast with Cinch.fm. When you go there, follow me and let me know in a comment and I’ll follow you back!
Then there are teleseminars, webinars, videos, free reports, guest blogging, and even live events to help you to get visible online and leave your virtual footprint.
That’s just a few of the marketing strategies to build online visibility and drive traffic back to your blog where you then can sell your products and create income. Of course most of these strategies are much easier to do with WordPress!
