I have helped some start-up business and individual’s succeed and maximize their income online. By providing them tactics and actionable techniques that will help them make more money online.





Social media, which was once considered to be a soon to fade out fad has today emerged as one of the most powerful marketing tools. This era of marketing calls for two-way communication, interaction and rich personalization, and what better way than social media to reach out to consumers with relevant offerings, influence them and convert them, at minimal costs.

 With over 3 billion internet users—and over 2 billion having  active social media accounts, lacking social profiles on popular platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter, you would lose out on reaching out and exposing your brand to a large market base. Social media for business is no longer optional. It’s a necessity if you want to make a mark for your brand.

The objective of marketing is creating brand awareness and instilling brand loyalty. Social media presence is a powerful medium to help your customers let know what your brand is about and how it intends to all value to their lifestyle. By humanizing your brand, you connect with your customers, address their pain-points and in the process increase brand awareness, retention and loyalty. Social media is a place where brands can act like people do, and this is important because consumers like doing business with other people; not with companies.

With social media, you can get access to huge amounts of customer data, in real time. By closely listening to social conversations, and implementing sentiment analysis, you can gather relevant customer data about which you customers are, where they are located, what they like and more importantly, what they feel about your brand. Braced with such valuable, wealth of information, you can take smart business decisions.

One of the significant advantages that social media offers are its capability to target and retarget niche and specific customers. Social media platforms have highly advanced segmenting capabilities that allow you to serve your ads to extremely specific audience. This implies better return on your investment and no wastage of valuable resources on the wrong customers.

The effectiveness of any Campaign Management Solution is adjudged by the cost it entails. The average cost per click on Google Adwords is between $1 and $2 and depending on the keyword targeted, you can end up paying $50 or more for a single click. But if you look at using social media to boost your posts, you will pay considerably less and at the same time, increase your brand recognition, interaction with consumers and be relevant and offer personalized experience.
Social media has offers opportunities for customers to convert. By effectively using social media presence, you can build communities of brand loyalists who in-turn can become strong brand influencers. Every post that you make can lead to site visits, and ultimately, give you on strong brand awareness and eventually lead to higher conversions.

By implementing well thought- out social media strategies, you can build trust and credibility around your blog, elements that are essential for sustainable growth. Brands that are able to display their consumer-centricity will be the ultimate winners and it is social media that can enable them to do so. It is time to jump on the social media bandwagon now.

Why is it important to write well on social media networks?
Each post publishes on social media reflects brand name of that company. If the person is sloppy, the company will look sloppy too. Even worse, it could weaken the company’s success on social media. Due to this it is important to write in a best way on social media network. The copywriting criteria of social media require some unique skills for distinguishing the efficiency of writers as well as of company. Every company needs to be able to cram value into as few words as possible. It is also essential to be consistent and engaging at all times. This is exactly the cause of writing this post.


Provide clear value to the readers:
Make sure that your posts are able to answer the questions of readers and it would be possible for you by spending time on researching for speaking meaningful to the audience. By this you can tailor the content to help them solve their problems or even just improve their day. Make sure the content you post on the social media would be able to answer the following question. “What’s in it for me” in accordance with the readers perspective. What are the benefits that readers will get by reading the content? Give a tangible benefit tailored to your most valuable potential readers.


Speak Directly to the Audience:
One simple way for connecting to the readers is to write in the second person using words like you and your. It is considered as the simplest technique that immediately makes your writing more accessible and will also grab readers’ attention towards the post.


Headlines matters:
You are writing great content, but you are not writing a title worthy of grabbing attention of the readers. Create better titles that help your posts to be more promotable in the social media networks. Create a new title specifically for sharing your content in social media. Don’t just settle for a single title you must be posting your titles multiple times.


Build Curiosity:
Curiosity is essential for grabbing the interest of the readers. By citing a surprising fact, statistic, and quote or by asking a question are the ways to arouse readers’ curiosity and get them think about how much they have to learn about a topic.


Use Simple Language and Active Voice:
The research about how people read online shows that they actually do not read they scan. Public approaches the social networks feeds in the same way, scanning rather than reading waiting for the thing that catch their eye in the mobile world. Using clear and simple language is the best way to catch the followers’ attention long enough for encouraging them to read more.


Customize for the platform:
While sharing your content, develop the customizable posting feature on each social media platform this includes the headings, image and the description of the content that you are sharing. The social media marketers as well as the social media user is competing to catch the user’s eyes, so the more optimized your post is for a particular platform, the more effective social media promotion will be.


Share at the right time:
Many content marketers ignore this easy idea as it could be considered as a common sense. In favor of greatest commitments, the content that you are sharing need to reach as many people as possible, so you have to go where the crowd is at the time when they are available. Afterward you could accumulate a reorganization timetable for ensuring yourself to post during a certain time of the day. Keep in mind that different social media platforms may not have the same peak times.
Optimize for each Social network:
While the strategies discussed above are universal, there are a few specific to keep in mind for individual networks.

How To Perform Directory Submission

A good clear, concise and short title. It should also be relevant to your content, website, etc.

Make sure and list your site in a relevant category/subcategory as well.
Keep your description to no more than 25 words. Typically you're not going to see much more than that in the directory listing or search results anyway. Keep your keywords relevant and limited to around 10-15.

Proper capitalization, punctuation, grammar and spelling are important as well. The more time an editor spends correcting your mistakes, the longer it takes you to get listed, or worse yet; you'll be rejected all together.












  1. You need to search for niche directories
  2. Then select a directory
  3. check it isn't a link farm or spammy
  4. Try to also check if it isn't in your log file
  5. Now find the appropriate category
  6. check you aren't already in there
  7. submit
  8. Finally it will be record in a log














CONCLUSION

  • Don't submit to every directory you can find, since most of them are junk.
  • Just because most of them are junk, don't disregard those that are not.
  • When you find some that are not junk, read through their site submission policies.
  • Spend some time looking around the directory, so you know what they are looking for.
  • Choose the most appropriate category, and submit to it.
  • Write a description that is appropriate for the directory you are submitting to.
  • When submitting to additional directories, try not to use the same site description. Change it up.
  • Don't get upset if the directory staff change your submitted description, as that shows that real people are looking at it.
