  • If you are a blogger and trying to keep your website / blog in top shape when it comes to exposure and getting most organic web traffic, you maybe ask your self if social media marketing is more important then […]

    • Here is the big difference between SEO and Social Media, which is why I give the edge to Social Media… On Social Media, you are building an audience. Now, you can do that with search too, but it is much more difficult to convert traffic into website members or blog subscribers. People are much more willing to click that like or follow button.

    • Social Media is important, but I think it is limited media to use. If you’re successful in SEO, the possibilities for you are endless. Social Media should be used to compliment SEO and not the other way round. I think people enjoy using Social Media because of the likelihood of engagement with your followers. However, SEO in my opinion and experience with using both is more effective.

    • I truly believe that if you want to be successful with your website/blog or online business you should be taking advantage of both, SEO and social media marketing. These two just go hand in hand and they work so amazingly together. As you have mentioned, social media marketing can even boost your SEO score so it would be silly to not use it.

      Which is more important? I think that they both hold equal importance. Perhaps social media might be a bit easier to grasp if you’re a beginner though since SEO has so many different components.

    • While both SEO and social media is important, I would say social media has the edge because people can see if a site is up to date and if it’s active. I recall a forum I was on once and the owner had followed the guide book to gain SEO from social media channels YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, but failed. Why? Because he never posted anything except a single post on each platform, and there were less than a handful of followers. Thus, anyone looking at the site can see it was set up purely for SEO and it didn’t rank because there was zero activity. If you use social media, you must use it properly otherwise people won’t take the site seriously.

    • I have never tried SEO but thanks for sharing the links. I have only been using social media to get traffic for my blog and to get others to share the links to my post for me. I have always found social media marketing to be easy and all you need to do is get followers or groups of people with the same interest and then advertise your work or product and you are able to sell.

  • Since I was introduced to Social Media I was an introvert with big dreams but had minimal traction to making them come true. I never knew how social media was going to change my life. I started my journey with […]

    • To a certain extent – everyone is an introvert. But I think getting into business helps balance out that part of a person’s personality. It helps them become more personable when they need to be. As opposed to those times when or where they are required to interact with people – and the whole situation ends up being awkward and off-putting. Those scenarios will go a lot smoother with practice.

    • This is a great article because I am introvert also and it is very easy for me to voice out my ideas in social media unlike in a face-to-face conversation. I also like to become an influencer and help other people through online content marketing but I haven’t figure it out how to start and this article really helps a lot. Hope to see more of these empowering article.

      For me, starting a blog is probably the best thing to do from the things you have recommended. A lot of people just aren’t too comfortable with live streams so it is a good idea to start with something like a blog until your confidence grows. And the best thing about it is that it is quite an easy thing to do. It’s relatively cheap to get a domain and hosting as well. You can earn quite a lot from advertising if your blog does relatively well as well.

    • I can definitely relate with your experience.

      I’ve been an introvert for as long as I can remember. I still recall the first time I became active on Twitter. At first, I was so unsure of myself. I was so conscious of my words and opinions. It took me about an hour to create my first few tweets.

      But it was a learning experience. I didn’t know how much influence I had on other people. It’s still less compared to well-known people like celebrities, but anything counts if you’re having real communication with people all over the world.

      I don’t aim to become someone famous in the internet. But knowing how much influence I have is enough to encourage me to keep sharing my thoughts on social media.

    • Well, I would partly describe myself as an outgoing person. At the same time, I would also include introvertish like traits within my character. I’m thankful for social media because it allowed me to display myself on multiple platforms and interact with people on a global scale. What’s also cool about that is that I was able to develop two profiles for me as a person. One presenting myself as a freelancer, and interacting with more of the business network side of social media. While the other being specifically tailored to personal interest and leisure as an individual. Neither of them ever clash and I’m able to get the best of both worlds when it comes to taking advantage of social media. Overall, I’d say through social media, I’ve been able to reach out and connect with people more than ever, without having to break the ice of a formal and physical introduction like in the old days.

    • You know, there is this saying that “80 percent of success is just showing up”. And, I believe that is absolutely true, even with becoming an online influencer. It is not talent, intelligence, , education, or credentials. Those things can make it easier, but what really makes a person influential, both online and off, is persistence, determination, and involvement… which simply means showing up.

    • Thank you for sharing with us your story. It has really inspired me. I’m an introvert and I have been addicted to social media for around 3 years. It is only since last year that I decided to use the internet for something useful instead of chatting.

      I have a blog which I haven’t been active on for very long. I am also happy I have been able to earn from writing articles and posting on forums. I feel I have made a great improvement. 😀 I will also decide soon on what kind of business I want to invest in soon while using social media.

    • Very encouraging information. I’m also an introvert and hate interacting with people and prefer to keep to myself. This gives me hope if you can be a social media influencer, yet you are an introvert than so can I. I am willing to try some of your tips like starting a group for my interests especially on Facebook. I have been thinking about it for a while. This has given me the momentum I need.

    • Aw, that’s a really nice story and I was pretty similar. Back when I initially started the blog, it took me ages to even begin because I was so introverted – I just didn’t know if people would even enjoy my content or read it. A friend of mine told me that if I truly want the blog to take off to start using social media platforms to my own advantage. The problem was… I never really posted much on things such as Facebook and Twitter until I realized how good it is.

      Now, I know how to engage with the people on the social media and how to attract their interest. Just remember to not be scared – share your passion with others.

    • This is the reason i came across to this site mainly because i feel that being an introvert it gives me the notion to express freely myself on social media without being judged.It has been my struggle on socializing with people because i am afraid of being rejected so i always ended up staying at home.I am thankful to have read this encouraging article.This will help me to become motivated in expressing myself and to strive more in what i am capable of doing.

      • Hello Janill.
        I am glad that you find courage to tell us your feelings, and i wish to tell you that you have nothing to fear really. Not everyone is accepted by everyone! We all get rejected by someone even if we have thousands of other fans, so you have to take it as common sense and reality. Just believe in your self, find what’s motivating you and contact with more positive people. As soon you start expressing your self more and more, you will overcome your fears faster.
