Social Media Takes Too Much Time…Unless An Affordable SEO Company Does It For You

There’s a lot of yakking going on across the Internet Marketing world about the power of social media. Creating powerful, viral-enabled content and getting it out in front of the crowd is the new “backlink building”. Unfortunately, taking the time to fully engage the social media world is a massive time sink, and if you’re not ready with a deep and detailed plan for exactly how you’re going to orchestrate your social campaign — including how you’re going to respond if (when) things go pear-shaped, you’re going to be caught off guard and have to spend even more time fixing it all.

That’s why, for the 90% of businesses that don’t have Ford’s entire office building devoted to Tweeting about the latest Fiesta, it makes a lot more sense to handle the social media the same way you handle your front doormats: outsource it to an affordable SEO company. Those guys who replace your front doormat once a week are experts who specialize in a very small area of endeavor: cleaning and moving around those little mats. Likewise, any decent local Internet Marketing company will have social media specialists on hand who manipulate pins and likes the same way the carpet guy manipulates warps and woofs.

They’ll sit down with you and work out some goals and some tools that you feel comfortable with them using. They’ll want to know things like what you expect from your social media — are you “just” looking to secure a few more first page placements, or are you more focused on building a crowd slavering to buy your next product? Do you want to use the social media to create backlinks? Or do you want to switch it around and use backlink building to develop the size of your social crowd?

Once they know what your goals are and they have an understanding of what lines not to cross, they’ll sit down and get to work. Social media is inherently unpredictable, because you’re dealing with people and not bits and bytes, but it’s also easy to manipulate — so success is more a matter of time than a question of success.
