Tips for Using Social Media to Drive Traffic to Your .ws Domain

If you’ve ever visited the GDI Facebook or Twitter pages, you can see that social networking sites are a great way to share content, start conversations and drive people to your site. GDI members use their .ws domains for a number of reasons, but all sites can benefit from more interested, educated and active traffic. Below are some tips to help you use social media to boost your site visits and in turn your down line.

1. Create a Facebook and Twitter Page for Your Company/ Website

This may seem like a simple step, but many people assume that since they have their own website, they don’t need to create additional sites. This is wrong. Social networking sites are an amazing opportunity to get direct feedback from those people who visit your sites as well as another forum to publicize your company/website. The are TONS of social networking sties, but if you don’t have time to sign up with multiple sites (who does?) then Facebook and Twitter are the site you must absolutely have a presence on. Sign up! Facebook Twitter

2. Communicate with Others

Social networks are just that, a place to be social and a great place to network. Like I mentioned above, social networks are an amazing tool for communicating with people who follow your website/ company. You can use Twitter or Facebook to ask questions to your base, start conversations with experts or identify potential followers and customers. Use the search option on Twitter to search by keyword for like minded people and follow those who seem like they could benefit from your website/company or vice versa. Do not just blast your link to your site constantly. This is a sure fire way to get people to unfollow and unfan you! Think what you would like to see on social networks and what people like you could benefit from and share that content. Read on for more information on content.

3. Content is King

Like any successful business, you need to offer people something. The best and easiest thing you can offer people in the world of social networking is content. You can be on Facebook and Twitter all day, but unless you are offering people something interesting or useful, they are not going to have any desire to continue to follow you or become a fan of your website/company. Offer your followers something by sharing great content. You can share self written articles, how tos, articles you liked, news stories and more. You can share anything you’d like, but before you post, ask yourself if what you are sharing is adding value for your followers, as long as it is, post away.

This just the surface of social network, but if you enact these tips you are on your way to having a very successful social networking presence and in turn driving people to your website and GDI opportunity. Check back for more social networking tips!

  1. This is great content. I prepare and upload videos to my website whenever possible. It is a great way for people to get to know you before they join your business.

  2. Great idea to start a GDI blog. Info from HQ is always good to get. Also reading the comments of others is very helpful.

    Thanks again,

  3. One of the most important aspects of my marketing that I learned from my mentors and also from GDI, was to over produce the product i put out. Meaning give more than I offered.

    Theres a huge difference when you think about recruiting affiliates too. Think about it for one second, IF you bring in 1000 affiliates yet none of them do nothing with the system, then you can expect most of them to QUIT!

    Now if you have five affiliates and you over train them and show them how to duplicate, rinse and repeat, your business will grow alot stronger. This is how I was able to build a strong team in my other businesses. My network then builds for me, the true MLM way!

    So build quality content for your team, and show them how to duplicate the same!
