Time-Stamped Show Notes:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: How to Exponentially Increase Your Social Media Traffic
  • [00:35] Within your content, block off specific pieces of it and make people Tweet or Share it to gain access to the full content.
  • [01:07] This is an easy way to gain 700-1000 more followers.
  • [01:53] Eric still likes using paid advertising. Even if you’re starting with a small budget, you can drive more clicks or page views by using Twitter ads.
  • [02:37] They are allocating a certain amount of dollars to YouTube ads in order to promote their new video series. If you don’t have that kind of money, a few dollars a day can make a difference.
  • [03:08] GaryVee (Gary Vaynerchuk) runs ads for his Youtube page and those have proven effective.
  • [03:23] If you’re trying to get more social traffic, cross-promote throughout all your social media accounts.
  • [03:50] Neil also puts re-marketing pixels on his site.
  • [04:10] The rule of seven: if someone sees you online seven or more times, you are more likely to convert them into a follower/subscriber.
  • [04:25] Eric really likes Meet Edgar, because it allows you to schedule posts across your different social media accounts.
  • [05:00] He also likes If This, Then That or Zapier. When you have a new post, it will pull from the blog RSS feed and automatically posts it for you.
  • [05:24] HootSuite, Buffer and the aforementioned scheduling tools can also hurt your business. You will get a bigger and better response from using Facebook’s own scheduling tool.
