Join related groups. So if you are promoting a job board, then your main audience are job seekers and recruiters. So search for these keywords, like Jobs , recruiters, job board etc and join these groups.

 

Once you joining request is approved, then you can target your audience . Try joining many groups, like 20-30 groups, or may be 7-8 groups in a day.

Keep the target as 1 post per day per group and don’t overdo. Focus more on comments and likes.

a)

Try search for posts that says, “Looking for a job “ or where job seekers looking for job, and then comment and tell about your job board and its features.

StumbleUpon Marketing

stumbleupon marketing

StumbleUpon is a social network around content. More like a social bookmark community and it is one of the best traffic generators among the top social media sites.
For a content promoter or a blogger, StumbleUpon is a MUST and if you have good quality and useful posts, you can get a very good traffic from StumbleUpon shares and likes.

Let’s see how can we generate traffic from StumbleUpon.

Create Account

Go to StumbleUpon, and sign up for a free account.Select your interests and follow people and learn the platform and how it works for 5-10 minutes.

Make sure that you complete your profile so that people can follow you back
-Complete bio information and write about yourself and your interests. Check Settings > Customize Profile
-Complete your interests. Check Settings > Manage Interests.
-Good profile picture. Check Settings > Profile Picture.
Because when a user likes, or stumbles, a particular page, it is put into the StumbleUpon lineup. As other StumbleUpon users are randomly searching
for new content on a specific topic using the Stumble button on their toolbar, any pages in the lineup for that topic will be displayed to them.

Content:

The main thing is good content. Lets not focus on sales pages or pages with lower content quality.
Bookmark your good quality pages. Focus more on nicely written articles and blog posts.

Use tags
Tags are powerful in StumbleUpon listings. They help to create new interests people can follow!
When tags exist on system, tags help you share your submission under more than one category.

Add StumbleUpon Badge
To increase chances of your content getting stumbled, one can add StumbleUpon badge to your website content. One can grab it from http://www.stumbleupon.com/badges/

 

Use Su.pr

http://su.pr/ is a shortening URL service from StumbleUpon. You can get a shortened URL from Su.pr and use that URL in other social websites, like facebook, twitter.
For example, you can tweet like: Nice blog on employment http://su.pr/xyx. Try signing it today.
If someone uses this link, it will open a website with StumbleUpon toolbar conveniently above the post making it easier for the user to vote up for that.

 

Create social network

Getting followers on StumbleUpon is much like getting followers on Twitter where in we can follow people of similar interests and rely on the fact that they may follow you back.
Find people of your interest. Finding followers interested in the same topics as you are simple. You can start by going to http://www.stumbleupon.com/discover/keyword/ and replace the keyword with topics you are interested in.

 

Exchange shares

You can try StumbleUpon exchange shares with your followers. Try installing StumbleUpon toolbar plugin in firefox, a good one: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stumbleupon/
Whenever a mutual follower sends something to you, you will see a red number in your Stumbleupon toolbar and on click, it will open the page being shared and you can vote or send a reply that you like the page.
This will encourage them to like your pages also.

 

Stumbling own content

Your content needs to be stumbled before you can share it.You can ask your friend to stumble your page so that you can share it with your followers

 

Submit interesting web pages

Apart from just sending your own pages, try submitting other interesting web pages in the same niche also.StumbleUpon does monitor user activity and may prohibit activity if all you do is promote your own stuff.

Twitter Marketing

Twitter Marketing

As the number of people are growing sharing their content in Twitter , its marketing can not be skipped by start up businesses and promoters.
Having a company twitter account is a MUST these days.

So lets see how can we promote our business /website in Twitter effectively.

Create Account

Start by creating a Twitter account and write a descriptive bio and add link to your website. Also , add a nice bio photo.

Strategically select the people you want to follow. For example, if you own a job board, then your audience will be recruiters and job seekers, so you can focus on them.

Create Twitter lists, For example here you can create list : “recruiter” , “Java candidates” , “New York .Net”, “Nurses” etc.
You can also use other people’s lists as a shortcut. (Note: Lists can be public or private.)

Follow People

These are Twitter users you want to follow. While Twitter lists can be as large as you want, keep the number of people manageable so you’re not overwhelmed with the stream. You don’t have to create lists from scratch. Use other people’s lists as a shortcut. (Note: Lists can be public or private.)

You can also search for people , with keyword “recruiter” and start following them.
Try following people rather than companies as they may not follow you back.
Find the influencers in your niche. A good tool for this is FollowerWonk.

Let’s Tweet

You can also plan your tweets in advance. Use a scheduling tool such as Hootsuite or Buffer to support your efforts.
Take advantage of hashtags. Hashtags are a shorthand way of capturing information and conversations.Try 1-3 hash tags in your tweets.
Example : #Job :Need #java developer in #NewYork. Your link.

Do not always promote links from your website. You should promote some good content from other websites.
Create or curate GREAT content to share. Use a tool like BuzzSumo to find out what content is the most popular.

Lets avoid tweeting style which is very common or that can not attract people to share it,

For example :
Tweet :
“Check out this ultimate guide to social marketing : {bit.ly} by @twitterhandle”

It can be rewritten for more attention and sharing.

“Are you not getting social media traffic even after lot of sharing! Read this and get more shares and traffic: {bit.ly} by @twitterhandle”

 

Use images if possible in tweets. You can use other media files also , like videos, presentations etc.Tweets with images attracts more re-tweets and sharing.

Make Other users to retweet your tweets as Traffic from Twitter doesn’t mainly come from your own followers. It comes from OTHER users who retweets your tweets.

 

 

Tweet often

Plan your tweets in advance. Use a scheduling tool such as Hootsuite or Buffer to support your efforts.

Tweet shelf life is very short , so try to extend the life of your content by creating several versions of your tweet to post.

 

Re-tweets

Re-tweet your own content more than once, a good one will be to re tweet 3-4 times, once every 6-8 hours to attract a broader reach with limited overlap.

 

Follow ups

Converse with people tweeting about your topic. This can be as simple as favoring the tweet, or a reply “thanks for sharing!”

 

Some tips:

No need to read all tweets
Use a scheduler like Buffer
It’s okay to reshare the same content
