Are Free Traffic Methods Really Free?
We all know social media is important when it comes to marketing our online business. The possibility of gaining massive amounts of traffic from “free” methods makes all new internet marketers wide eyed and bushy tailed.
But these methods take a lot of time. So are they really free?
Do you value your time? Well…. ya should!
Don’t get me wrong, “free” traffic methods are an important part of growing your online business but if you’re just starting out and truly wanting to be successful…. use a paid, scale-able method. As your business grows, you will have more time and money to focus on building the other methods.
How Often Should You Post On Social Media?
Researching “Free” social media, marketing is a daunting task.
One guru says to post 5 times a day, the next says once a day. Of course, they both have specific yet different peak times to post.
One theory is to post many times a day in order to get in front of your audience while they are online. Another is to stick with one extremely valuable post in order to get more engagement.
The contradictions are overwhelming! So what they hayl are we supposed to do?!
Do Your Own Testing, Trial & Error
Research is great but don’t forget that this is about YOU not everyone else. Use the knowledge and inspiration you gain from others to get started, then begin your own testing.
- Test different social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram etc.)
- Test different times of the day (Before the typical work shift, lunch, after work, midnight etc.)
- Test different style of posts (image, links, video, text etc.)
- Document your results and adjust accordingly
To the success and freedom you deserve!
