This is a case study on how I used SEO, Social Media, and a little good fortune to bring thousands of visitors to my blog post about the fake Diwali satellite image of India.
It is a good example of the power of social media marketing (when it works), and can be used to help convince the doubters. I’m not guaranteeing this kind of success with every attempt you make, but you have to give yourself the opportunity by participating in the conversations out there. Note that “success” for my blog meant:
- number of backlinks acquired
The success metrics will change for every person, and it’s important to determine what that end goal is before selecting the marketing channel or channels. It’s not always easy to tie social media to sales, but if you know how to convert all those extra visitors then you should be fine (heh).
I’d love to here your about your experiences with social media marketing, what worked, what didn’t? Please share in the comments below.
