Today we are going to jump right and talk about offering your fans and followers exclusive content and special deals. We touched briefly on this topic in your other lessons, but in this lesson, we are going to dig a little deeper and go over some great ideas you can use in your next campaign. – Exclusivity is the key For this to work you have to make sure that they know the content or offer deals is only available to them if they follow you on a particular network. By making your offers network specific you can grow your following on a multiple networks as well as inspire more consumer interaction and loyalty. For instance, if you want to grow your Facebook following then offer fan only discounts to your products and services. Something that’s not available to your Twitter or Pinterest followers. If you want to grow your following on Twitter, offer them something exclusive to that network and completely different from the offer you posted on Facebook.

For instance, every 100th follower gets and honorable mention pinned to your page for a day or a free (preferably downloadable) gift.

Crash Course on Social Profits Part 3

Crash Course on Social Profits Part3 It’s time for your third lesson in the Social Profits Crash Course. I hope you found lesson two informative and now have a better understanding of the importance of including a solid call to action in your social media content. Let’s dive right in! When it comes to encouraging social sharing, sometimes people need a little extra motivation. That’s why it’s so important to structure your social media campaign in a way that encourages them to share your content. Let’s go over a few simple ways you can do that. – Worthwhile For most people it all boils down to; what is in it for me? It’s important to craft your social media content in a way that provides your fans and followers something beneficial to them. One example would be to create a campaign that gives them access to a coupon or discount if they share your post with a certain amount of people. There are all kinds of apps specifically designed for this purpose just do a search online for “deal apps” and you’ll find network specific applications that you can use to create an irresistible offer. – Ask When it comes to getting your fans and followers to retweet, repin or share your social media content one of the simplest thing you can do is ask. Of course, you have to be sure to provide them with such great content and offers that they will naturally want to share it with all of their friends, but a little nudge in the right direction is also a good idea. Most of the time when you ask your audience to interact and share with your content, they’re more happy to do it. So always, be sure to include a call to action that encourages them to share and share alike. – Reward Everybody likes to be recognized and rewarded for their participation. You can use that to your advantage especially on social networking sites. Pay close attention to the interaction and comments of your social content. When you see someone in particular that is consistently sharing and leaving positive comments be sure to recognize them publicly for their efforts. Not only will it make them feel good it will also encourage your other fans and followers to do the same in hopes of being rewarded for their actions. All of these methods are extremely easy to do, but just because they’re simple you shouldn’t underestimate their power. By providing worthwhile content, asking people to share it and rewarding them when they do, you’ll soon find that your social campaigns will reach farther, last longer and most of all yield more profits for your business. That’s it for today’s lesson. In your next lesson, we will be talking more about offering your fans and follower’s exclusive content and special offers. Until then, Kathleen
