In this day and age, many businesses are jumping on the social media bandwagon.  This makes it that much more important to stand out in your marketing efforts.  With so much competition out there, you want the buyers to take notice of your company.  This article will provide some valuable tips that can allow you to do just that.

Use Facebook to get some very low cost marketing opportunities. Make a professional business account or create a business fan page.  Take some time to look up your competitors on Facebook to see how much of a presence they have, and what they did to get that.  Do not copy what they did, but use their page as an example for what is working or what is not.

Promo’s & Contests

Use Facebook to run a special promotion or a competition.  Everyone loves winning something, so your followers are sure to get involved.  Whether you offer a free product, a special high-amount coupon or a big or small prize, it will get people more actively involved with your Facebook page.  It also builds goodwill with your customer base.

Blogger Outreach

Find some influential bloggers that are out there in your niche and offer to be a guest poster on their blog.  This would then allow you to have a link back to your blog.  It may also attract people to follow you on the various social media sites that you are on.

Get some healthy competition going on your Facebook.  Many people like to participate in contests and competitions.  Run one on your Facebook page, and watch the interest gain momentum at a fast pace.  It will not take long to have a huge fan base for your business, if you market it right.

Standing out in the world of social media means increased business coming through your door.  Finding ways to stand out can be tricky though, as the competition will always be working to stay one step ahead of you.  Following the tips in this article, will allow your business to take the lead in the competition.
