Increase Online Sales through Viral Social Networking

Getting Ready for Viral Social Networking


Increase Online Sales Through Viral Social Networking

We just covered how to use Artisteer to create a website fast. So, now you’re online — what comes next?

Use the top social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn to launch your business forward.

Try the book, Increase Online Sales Through Viral Social Networking: How to Build Your Website Traffic and Online Sales using Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn in Just 15 Steps, by Stephen Woessner.

How’s that for a lengthy subtitle?

Steve Woessner and the Snowball Momentum

Having read many books on social networking for business, I found this book to be a slow start. You may read a good 120 pages before reaching the best information — new information, helpful for those who already have some experience.

The first part of the book includes steps teaching how to set up Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn). Increase Online Sales through Social Networking appeared to be a book for beginners; for those who had no idea how to establish an Internet presence.

Good thing I kept reading~

Woessner’s book is like a snowball. It starts out slow but the material begins to build and as the time saving techniques stick in your mind, you will feel the excitement to immediately implement them.

Like a snowball rolling downhill, the momentum grows, and the idea is — once started, it will take little effort to keep it going. Theoretically, the snowball could run you over — overwhelm you if you do not have a system to read, comment, and share amongst all your new social media networking connections.

You will have a good system in place if you read Increase Online Sales Through Viral Social Networking

Viral Social Networking

When I think of something going viral, I imagine a post, photo, or video that is shared at lightning speed to an audience who in turn shares, and whose recipients urgently share, and the process is repeated. Viral to me means “instantaneously reaching a huge audience.”

I didn’t find anything in this book that resonated with me as to how I can make my post, photo, or video go viral, so don’t let the title mislead you. (Woessner includes tips for making a good post, just not the attributes you need for a “viral post.”)

I think Woessner’s title refers to setting up you business with the potential or capability to have a post, photo, or video go viral, as well as positioning yourself to accomplish social networking for business at a viral speed.

Increase Online Sales through Viral Social Networking

Are you:

  1. Skeptical of marketing with social media?
  2. Frustrated with the hours social networking for business takes?
  3. Ignorant on how to track your social media networking efforts?

This book is different from all of the social networking books I’ve read. (Some are quite good, and I will review those as time permits.) This book does not detail the intricacies of Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, but takes you down a distinct business path.

You receive an entire business concept as a whole. Some items inside are:

  • Business Goals: Learn the 8 most popular goals businesses set
  • 7 Elements of Content: Learn the key features to a post
  • 5 Steps to Viral Social Networking: Learn 5 key steps to keeping your social media time to 10 minutes a day (again, viral is referring to setting your business up for a viral capability and/or accomplishing your networking at viral speed)
  • Google Analytics: Learn how to measure your viral social networking
tend to your social networking

The best measurement of business success is sales. Tend to your business as you would a garden and it will grow. Gardens take time, but you can also make a fairly good one by dedicating only a few minutes each day.

Increase Online Sales Through Viral Social Networking will give you techniques and strategies to effectively market with social media in as little as 10 minutes a day.

Stephen Woessner predicts if you follow his technique, you will see results in 90 days. What kind of results? A mixture of sales, traffic, subscribers, and more. Your results will depend on the goals you set up, how effectively you follow the steps, and changes you make as you analyze the results.

Tracking Social Networking for Business

I found the section dedicated to Google Analytics extremely helpful. While the chapter follows the style of other sections (a quick overview), this was the first book that defied all I had heard — people telling me that social media networking could not be tracked.

Social networking for business can be tracked.

Social media networking does not need to take hours.

Whether it is your own Internet website business or you are looking for a gift to enhance a child entrepreneur’s business, this book will help.
