Helpful Social Media Tips for Your BusinessBy KudaniContent
Your customers are likely the most critical aspect of your business–so why would you ever take their journey with your brand for granted? And most organizations, rightfully so, would argue that they do care deeply about their customers’ experience. However, when it comes to social media, customer relationship management (CRM) isn’t always a high priority for many.
Putting aside or even worse, completely leaving out social media in your CRM strategy can have serious repercussions on your brand. An exceptional brand experience is what gets consumers to refer to others and ultimately come back again. And anything negative in that journey will certainly come back to haunt your bottom line.
Social media CRM tools make it possible to track, benchmark and engage with customers across social platforms to provide better experiences. While your business might have CRM tools for other areas of your marketing department, you cannot leave out social media.
That’s why we’re here to show you the five ways your brand can improve your CRM strategy with social media:

How Sharing Content Gets You More Visibility and Sales

I’m sure you’ve often heard, content is king. But does that mean that you have to write everything you share? There isn’t enough hours in the day for that!
Content marketing’s role in the continued growth and development of your business cannot be overstated. However, unless you are running a news agency, it is unreasonable to expect that you would be producing nearly all of the content you share on a daily basis.
Doing that would not be productive in the greater scheme of things (as it would prevent you from focusing on other critical parts of your operations). It would also be unrealistic to assume that this can even be done in the first place.
Lastly, because creating original content 100% of the time is likely to make you stick to the same, tried and tested types and methods, it creates a bubble that stops you from seeing what other kinds of content you should be producing for your audience.
This is where content curation comes in. Simply put, content curation involves going through relevant content online that would be of interest to your target audience, then making a list of items and corresponding links that you can share with your social media followers.
The benefit of content curation is twofold: Not only does it keep your online presence fresh by giving you new things to share, but it also provides you with some valuable insight on the topics that are worth writing about.

We all want our content to reach more people, and to also live on, and keep bringing visitors to our site long after we’ve published it. Most brands do the basics, they publish a blog and cross-promote articles on social media. Some brands take it further, by publishing directly on social platforms like LinkedIn’s publishing platform or connecting their blog to Facebook Instant Articles. Companies who are serious about driving leads and winning customers online have adopted an inbound marketing strategy that drives traffic, captures leads, and moves those leads down their funnel using lead magnets and calls-to-action on their website, and blog.
We’ve found, however, that most companies aren’t using some of the best content promotion techniques available to them, even though they’re free. We think they’re so valuable, that we add these sites, tools, and strategies to the content strategy we create for all of our clients.
In this post, we’ll share seven easy and free ways to get more traffic.
