Forums came before social media and were an important predecessor that remains important today. These are sites were online discussion are around a specific hobby, topic, or interest. Information is shared and exchanged and online communities are built. The important thing with this Google+ Local listing is to get reviews, citations, links, and social shares. People buy chiropractors like they buy books online these days. If you have the most reviews, you establish the highest social proof.
Strive to get 2-3 times that of your closest competitor. These pool maintenance companies are going to be in need of swimming pool supplies. If that’s what you sell, you will be targeting these customers. If you have a retail store you could be targeting homeowners as well. However, businesses such as health spas, hotels and condominium complexes are more likely to use the services of a pool maintenance company.
A little bit of SEO (search engine optimization) isn’t too arduous. Choosing a few keywords and attending to tags doesn’t take much time. Listing with directories and indexes (Technorati is a well-known name) can’t hurt. Joining a blogging community can help – after all, if you don’t read and respond to other people’s blogs, why should they bother with yours? But the fact remains that to gain a wide readership you either have to have something reasonably spectacular to offer or a lot of time to spend on promotion.
The idea of twitter is to get as many “followers” as you can, the idea being that the more followers you have, the more traffic you can drive towards whatever your website may be. This isn’t always the case, however. Some people use twitter to keep in touch with friends or to make new ones. The whole point of twitter, when you break it down, is to communicate with other people. Because you only have 140 characters in which to state your message, you have to make what you say relative to what you want people to hear.
In other words, don’t waste the space that you have in which to send a message. It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish-and what kind of constituency you have. Do you want to microblog just to give your friends an insight into your daily routine-a Gmail, Facebook, or Twitter update is sufficient. Or, are you trying to gain traction in a new business? Expose your microblogging thoughts on LinkedIn, a professional resume-like networking site. Or you can Twitter to businesses or business owners.
It’s not easy to decide. If the status is not really time critical (e. g. you might be posting a joke or some sort of intriguing remark) then the most effective moment I have found to post status updates is weekday evenings. The most amount of people I have seen on facebook (looking at exactly who is on-line via facebook chat) has been Monday to Thursday evening. You can ping as often as you want, however some sites will only let you ping within a certain time period.
(once every 24 hours for example) Many of them won’t let you ping your sub pages if you’ve just pinged your home page or another page on your site.
