That’s how many people recent statistics project will use social media sites in 2019.

That’s more than 1/3 of the planet!

Even more staggering– the number continues to grow.

For example, in 2018, 2.5 billion people visited social media sites.

Marketers should capitalize on the growing use of social media sites.

You know you need social media if you’re going to generate exposure in order to market your product or services to potential customers.

Are your potential customers at social media sites?

Absolutely! 1/3 of the planet is there!

However, if you and I know your audience is on social media sites, certainly your competition knows it as well.

You can get lost in the online “noise,” or you can stand out.

If you make a social media marketing plan which produces disappointing results, you need to step up your game.

If you want to maximize your ROI (return on your time invested), you need to shine.

Using Fotor’s online design maker to make professional-looking graphics that scream “Wow” will gain you online attention no matter what website you’re using to market your online business.

That’s the precise definition of social media marketing: the process of gaining website traffic or attention from the use of social media sites.

“How can Fotor help?” you wonder.

By letting Fotor’s graphics showcase your content, your blog or business will shine. You work less hard but reap more rewards when you use Fotor.

A strong social media marketing plan employs the following techniques:

This article explains how to effectively implement all three strategies.

Get to know your customers

You can start by sending cards on their birthdays. This B2C strategy is unique. Your customers will appreciate this thoughtful approach. Fotor has an amazing collection of cards. You can use Google Calendar to discover your contacts’ birthdays.

When you use Fotor, graphic design for social media sites is easy! Fotor has a multitude of preset templates and images or you can design your own.

Sending thank you cards after purchases will reinforce the goodwill your customers had toward your business when they made the decision to buy from you. Furthermore, the card may bring you to mind when they’re ready to make another purchase.

In the event someone made an inquiry which didn’t result in you selling your product or service, you can send a follow-up business card which can serve as a reminder of your company.

Use colorful graphics in your marketing

We are living in a world where people are engaged by pictures. Infographics, Infographics, memes, graphics, and interesting photos all go a long way in engaging a potential customer. Free tools like Fotor are at your disposal and aid in graphic design. For example, you can use Fotor’s templates to make your business logo.

It will look like you hired a professional to design your logo for your company!

Market using unique approaches. For example, avoid posting the same content on different social media sites. People will eventually tune out your message if they see it repeatedly. Even if you are offering the same content at other websites, you can try to deliver your message in a new way at different places by using different Fotor templates.

Avoid the one-size-fits-all approach. If your social media marketing is to be successful, you must consider the platform you’re using to deliver your message. For example, Twitter is brief, LinkedIn is professional, and Facebook is relaxed. You can adjust your Fotor graphic to fit that mood.

Post content at sites where your targeted population spends time

Just how many social media sites should you be on? You should be where your customers are. One of the biggest mistakes marketers make is being too many places at once.
