  1. Effective SEO

 It’s important to integrate best SEO practices to achieve a better ranking. If you create quality content you encourage inbound links from external sites through social media.

  1. Use visuals

Visuals inspire your audience.  Help visitors make purchasing decisions quickly concerning your products. Use videos, demos or photos to appeal to a customer’s willingness to purchase.  Instagram is an excellent avenue to drive traffic to your website by the use of visuals. 

  1. Be consistent with social media publishing

In order to increase more traffic through social media, make sure you share content more than once and that you use hashtags for expanded reach. Publish actionable and valuable content with a heading, link and relevant hashtags then share it several times. Effective social media traffic generation requires keeping a daily publishing schedule to build followers and reach.

Check your competition

Your social media strategy is not complete until you find out what your competitors are doing. A social media competitive analysis can help you figure out how audiences respond to competitor’s social posts.  Use this insight to successfully build an engaged audience and drive more traffic to your website.
