Social Media excerpt from:


by Tony Rafferty - CEO Grafenia plc

"Customer engagement is paramount. Genuine ‘likes’ on Facebook and ‘followers’ on Twitter give you a direct route to engage with your customers, and for them to engage with and comment on your company. The common belief is that this, in turn, adds to your SEO profile.

Like any marketing campaign, social media works best when the individual elements interact and have a common purpose. In practice, this means that, having updated your blog, the link should then be shared as an update on the main social media platforms. And remember, it’s about being disciplined - as most blogs fade out after a measly 3 months! So there’s a real opportunity to be better than your competition. Active, consistent, relevant use of Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc. forms your social media footprint, and in turn adds to your domain authority and SEO visibility. Like most things in SEO, there’s no direct ‘cause and effect’ - it builds up over time.

In addition to boosting your SEO, activity on social media sites does drive some referral traffic. In the print market to date, we have found that lower value, more consumer-type orders hail from this activity.

Apart from the SEO benefits, today social media allows customers to directly interact with your brand in a very public way. An active engagement here can build a more sticky relationship with your customers."
