10 Terrific Tips on Social Media Marketing from Mike Schiemer

I'm Mike Schiemer and I've been successfully using social media marketing for hundreds of businesses since 2003 (starting with AOL Instant Messenger and MySpace... oh how times have changed), so I certainly know the lay of the land. I've used social selling to build businesses from scratch, promote my own profitable projects, and take established corporations to the next level. You name it, I've done it. 

You won't find a much bigger overall social media evangelist than me but I am also very aware that there are plenty of pitfalls to avoid. I've seen embarrassing corporate hashtag fails, fatal digital marketing management mistakes, and every flawed social media strategy under the sun. With competition more fierce than ever (and growing stronger every day) you can't afford to have a sub-par social media plan. Here are 10 terrific tips on social media marketing to help you avoid failure and effectively grow your business success.

1) Stand Out From The Pack! 

2) Be Consistent With Posts & Interactions

3) Be Unique While Remaining Professional 

4) Avoid Controversial Or Polarizing Topics If Possible

5) Have A Strong Presence On All Major Platforms

6) Connect With Major Brands & Industry Leaders

7) Don't Depend on Facebook Marketing For Everything

8) Focus On Driving Quality Traffic & Sales

9) Constantly Monitor, Analyze, and Evolve

10) Be Patient, It Takes Time!

When it comes to Tip #1 "Standing Out From The Pack" you need customized eye-catching social media graphics instead of overused stock images, lame GIF's, or low quality images you've taken with your outdated phone.

Remember that Rome wasn't built in a day. It's a long journey filled with trial, error, and evolving strategy. Social media should be working for you but first you need to work for your social media success.
