Driving Traffic from Social Media to Your Own Domain

SocialMediaTrafficRelationship

The Internet world has already seen several social media sites come and go. Even though Facebook is currently immensely popular, like everything else on the Internet. Its days are likely numbered. The point of this is that you don’t want to be too connected to one social media site for your advertising. Your blog provides a great alternative to social media. With a little bit of skill you can drive people off of your social media profile and onto your blog.

Post Great Updates

Whichever social media site you happen to be using, make certain that you post really great updates on it. These updates should include an encouragement for people to go learn more at your blog. Ideally, what will happen will be that people make reading your blog a regular part of their Internet routine. They may still see your posts come up on their

news feed on their social media site but, should the social media site change its policies again and your posts disappear, they will already be in the habit of checking with your blog regularly.

Make Your Site Social

Many premium WordPress themes come set up so that it is easy for you to make a membership section. Encourage your readers to make a member profile on your blog. One easy way to do this is to not allow nonmembers to comment on any of your blog posts. If you can entice people to come to your blog and take a look at what you have to offer, they may be willing to make a membership profile and they may get more attached to that membership profile than they are to their social media account.

It would be absolutely ridiculous to tell someone who they have a realistic chance of competing with a site like Facebook or LinkedIn for membership. It is not ridiculous, however, to make an effort to appeal to your niche and to encourage them to sign up for your site as a more targeted alternative to social media.

One of the real benefits of having people spend more time on your domain than they do reading your content on their social media profile is that you have complete control. If they come to your domain, they’ll see everything you post. Unfortunately, social media sites are finding ways to make it difficult for businesses to add content to people’s news feeds and, for business owners, that significantly lessens the value of spending time working on these profiles.
