  5. Finally, you can wipe out the Discord app and do whatever you want. The screen and sounds of your activity will be shared with your audience.

If you want to finish streaming, just head back to Discord and click on the “Stop sharing” icon.

How to share Netflix on Discord?

You can share Netflix’s screen on many platforms, which is true for Discord. If you want to share your screen, follow these steps;

Step one: First, open your browser and go to the Netflix website

How to make a website on Instagram?

Are you using Instagram to promote your business? Do you want to direct your Instagram followers to your website? Once you build an audience on your Instagram, How can you get their eyes from your feed to convert on your site? The answer is you need to focus on how you can drive traffic (organic traffic) and conversions from Instagram. But before anything, you should make sure your profile will successfully drive traffic to your website.

How to make a website on Instagram?

You should make an excellent website on Instagram with iLink to draw users in and encourage them to follow you. The first thing your customers see from you on Instagram is your Instagram bio. Usually, people may see one of your pictures before they come to your profile. But if they want to follow you, they will look at your bio. So, it’s the first impression that you are making on them.

How can I write a good Instagram bio?

I can give you some suggestions to consider:

  • Your name (username)

Your name  should be unique (your business name or your actual name)

Don’t use weird words, funny spellings or other versions of your name. This is how people know you, and your brand.

Your username and name on Instagram are the only things that Instagram considers in search queries.

  • Make it interesting

Social media is about having fun, especially on Instagram.

Your bio should show the fun side of your personality too. Know your audience and make them laugh.

  • Use some keywords

Keywords on Instagram aren’t used the same way as keywords on websites, hashtags are easy to search and find, but if you use them on your bio, they won’t show on search results.

You can create a custom hashtag for your brand and use it to connect with other users.

  • Include your website link

The only way to post a clickable link on Instagram is to place it in your bio. Most users link to their website’s homepage.

But what if you want to share more than one link on Instagram?

You can’t always update or change your link on bio, it’s frustrating.

There is a way to fix this problem 

You can use iLink to convert as many links as you want into one short link and place it on your Instagram bio or anywhere you like.

iLink lets you create a source page to store your multiple links via one link and use it on your Instagram bio.

by using this tool, you can direct more traffic to your web pages and promote your products.

You can customize your profile by adding profile pictures, addresses of your other social media accounts, your location, and phone number, etc.

Place a call to action on your caption or image

You can throw a contest or giveaway on Instagram and ask them to click the link on the bio and enter your website.

Like this post of canva. The photo has a call to action that asks followers to enter a contest for a year of free access; the caption directs users to click on the bio link of canva.

Conclusion

Now that you get a few ideas about how to drive traffic to your site from your Instagram bio, its time to get started.

Take your first step and make sure you don’t get obsessed with it.

Facebook

sharing high-quality photos on Facebook convinces your audience that your brand is authentic, reputable, and detailed (no matter how small).

·       Facebook Photo Dimensions

Facebook wants to provide for positive user experience and prevent brands from being spammy or overly promotional, so they check to notice how much text is emphasized in each picture.

·       Facebook Profile and Cover Picture Sizes

Most brands use this section for their logo rather than a personal photo. However, if your brand is run by you and only you, using a picture of yourself would not be a bad idea.

·       Facebook Shared Link Image Sizes

If you are sharing a link to your brands’ Facebook Page, there are a few more factors to consider and formats to choose from. When you paste a link into your status, depending on the dimension of the pictures on the web page, you will be advised to include a carousel of up to 10 pictures. You can also share the link without using the picture — which can come in handy if you’d prefer to upload a new photo to share with the link instead.

·       All Facebook picture Sizes

Twitter

·       Twitter photo Sizes

Twitter is known for its real-time social buzz and is also a top-rated customer service and experience tool for brands.

·       Twitter Profile and Cover Picture Sizes

Your profile picture will be visible on your Twitter profile, in your news feed, and near a link in the “Who to follow” box. Most brands use this as a spot for their logo because it is seen practically everywhere: when you tweet, when others retweet your tweets, when their retweet gets retweeted, and so on.

Your cover picture, however, is only observed when a user clicks to your Twitter profile – but that doesn’t mean it’s not essential! It’s a large Image across the top of your profile, so you want it to be high quality and represent your business.

Twitter recommends that you upload your cover picture dimensions at 1500 x 500 pixels, but because the cover pictures are responsive, yours may look larger or smaller depending on the size of your screen or browser.

·        Twitter Timeline Picture Size

Twitter has a limit of 280 characters, but you can use visuals to represent your business and share your content.

Attaching a picture to your tweet used to take away 23 characters, but in 2016 Twitter stated that links and media attachments such as photos, GIFs, videos, and polls would no longer count as part of the character limit. This is excellent for brands because tweets with pictures are more likely to be retweeted than those with just text.

·        All Twitter Photo Sizes

Google

Google Posts let you share events, updates, blog posts, and business news directly to the Google search page.  Posts provide for a visual and unique way to catch the attention of people searching for your brand. They only stay active for a week, so you should update your Google Posts frequently.

You can get started with Google Posts straight within the Google My Business interface. Make sure to use captivating pictures and headlines that grab attention.

·        Google Posts Picture Size

·       G+ Image Sizes

Google+ endured a substantial redesign, giving many brands and everyday users hope for the social network’s future. When a user performs a Google search for your business, elements of your Google+ profile, such as your location and reports, will be listed, as well as links to recent posts on G+. So while Google+ may not be the top social media platform, it absolutely shouldn’t be ignored.

·       G+ Profile and Cover Photo Sizes

Your G+ profile may show up in search results so you should make sure that your profile picture is high quality.  Even though you upload your profile picture as a square, it will display as a circle on your page.

Regarding your G+ cover picture, it’s the largest photo at the top of your profile, so you will want clear and creative visuals to portray your business.

·       G+ Shared Picture Sizes

While sharing pictures on Google+, you have the opportunity to share publicly, within a Collection, in a Community, with a Circle, or with a person. Collections are similar to Pinterest boards where you can collect and organize pictures or links about a specific topic. It helps keep your posts organized and lets people choose which Collections they want to follow based on their interest.

·        All Google+ picture Sizes

Pinterest

·       Pinterest Photo Sizes

Pinterest is also a great search engine, with 72% of users having purchased or considered purchasing something they found on the platform.

·        Pinterest Profile Picture Size

Pinterest is one of the few platforms that doesn’t require a cover picture, so the representation of your brand leans on the shoulders of your profile picture. Similar to G+, Pinterest’s profile photo uploads as a square, but displays as a circle at the top of your Pinterest profile.

·        Pinterest Board Display Size

The first thing people see when they visit your Pinterest profile is your board collections. Name your boards correctly and include a relevant cover picture for each of them. You don’t want empty boards, but you don’t want plenty of boards with no purpose, either.

·        All Pinterest Picture Sizes

LinkedIn

·       LinkedIn photo Sizes

LinkedIn is an excellent platform for networking with other professionals and is also a resource for brands to connect with other companies, potential employees, and industry leaders. You can choose between a personal profile and business page.

·       LinkedIn Personal Profile and Background Picture Size

You must have a decent, professional picture of yourself for your personal LinkedIn profile.

On LinkedIn, the background picture replaces the “cover Image” at the top of your profile page. As a rectangular shape, it can be challenging to find imagery that fits the space properly – that’s where designing your own visuals comes in handy.

·       LinkedIn Brand Logo Size

The standard logo for a business account is a small square at the top of the profile page that is shown next to your brand’s name.

The square logo is what people observe when they search for your brand or look at your posts in their news feed.

·        LinkedIn Company Cover picture Size

Instead of a background, you can have a cover picture on a business page that spreads across your profile underneath your logo and business name.

·       All LinkedIn Picture Sizes

Instagram

·       Instagram Photo Sizes

Instagram is all about visuals, which should make the importance of high-quality pictures more obvious for this social network platform.

·       Instagram Profile Picture Size

As with other social platforms, the profile photo is a circle that displays next to your posts and at the top of your profile page. For companies, it’s a great idea to use their logo here, so all of their pictures are associated with their brand.

As for 2016, Instagram updated its profile, feed, and hashtag pages with a smooth, minimal design, so there is no longer a cover Image.

Instagram also lets you upload portrait and landscape-oriented photos and videos. So, to ensure pictures look sharp across all devices with high-resolution displays, Instagram rolled out support for pictures at a higher resolution up to a 1080-pixel width.

·        All Instagram Photo Sizes

Tumblr

·       Tumblr Photo Sizes

·       Tumblr Avatar (Profile Picture)

This Picture will show up as a small square next to your posts in your followers’ feeds and is embedded with your username in posts.

Remember your header image won’t show up on your page unless you add it to your theme. Your avatar may also not be featured on your theme but will show up as your Tumblr’s favicon on browser tabs.

YouTube

·       YouTube Photo Sizes

YouTube is a video-sharing network that is reached by users with different devices, such as tablets, phones, desktops, and televisions, so it’s necessary to have imagery that displays correctly across devices.

·        YouTube Channel Icon

A small square profile picture overlays the top left corner of your YouTube page. As crucial as profile and cover pictures are to representing your business, on YouTube, many people will see one of your videos before them.

4 practical ways To Make Money On Twitter

When you search for “how to make money online” in Google, several results come up. You may get confused since there is a broad range of ideas and tips on how to earn money in online environments. Let’s narrow it down to Twitter as a money-making platform.

Twitter is a popular social networking platform used by businesses and individuals to send short messages to their followers. Before starting to monetize your Twitter account, check if your business or field of activity is a candidate for this platform. Then begin your job by having an appealing bio description, profile photo, well-defined niche or niches, and a large follower count just like other social networks. Engagement on your tweets is also very important because you are more likely to sell your items or services or receive advertisement requests from businesses or brands if you have consistent likes, comments, retweets, and, in short, a quality presence.

Can you make money off Twitter?

Yes, you can make money on tweeter if you a lot of followers. The more you have fans, the more you can earn money. However, it is said that to make money on social media, you should have more than 10K followers. But if you don’t have, you still can start from a few followers.

How much does twitter pay celebrities? It depends on the account and the number of followers. Twitter influencers can earn money up to S10,000, per tweet. For example, Frankie Muniz, by the handle of @frankiemuniz, who has more than 175K followers, earn about 13,000 per tweet.

Afterward, you can start your money-making journey on Twitter by taking smart steps gradually. Your strategy depends on whether you want to sell your own products or services or be an affiliate marketer or use your account as a traffic generator to your main website. See the below overview to figure out what you need to do.

  • Sell your products or services

Making a website was a challenge previously, but now, you can create your online brochure using iLink iStore. So, if you can prepare your products, make an online brochure, and share it on Twitter. When users are visiting your website, they will click on the link, and they may become your potential customers.

All you need to do is going to the iLink website, sign up, and add your products. Then, copy the URL and paste in the twitter website section.

To add your online store on Twitter:

  • Go to iLink
  • Follow the instruction to sign up
  • Select Create an online store, or I have products
  • Follow the on-screen instruction
  • From the dashboard add your products using pictures and details 
  • Copy the unique URL and paste in the Twitter bio

You can make self-promotional tweets to encourage potential customers to buy from you and increase your visibility day by day. But do not forget to include other types of tweets from time to time to humanize your profile and avoid driving your followers away. Post tweets that aim to encourage, entertain or inspire your audience from time to time in order to keep them interested and give them a reason to listen. Make sure your timeline conveys your business and product expertise while still being helpful to your followers.

As an example, I can mention some people who use their Twitter account to get more bids for their handmade stuff available on eBay and Etsy. They broadcast their product by making use of the relevant link along with best-suited hashtags and a short description of the craft in a tweet to direct their fan to the page on eBay and Etsy and generate more leads.


This picture was taken from Lucy Bearne Twitter’s account (https://twitter.com/Lulaveggie).

Another example is when someone owns a website, offers a service or product and uses Twitter as a traffic generation tool. The link can be used both in Twitter bio and in tweets. Given Twitter’s high domain authority, every click on their website link contributes to the higher rank in Google’s search results page. What is more, they increase the chances of making sales and finding more prospects.

It is also to your advantage to ask influencers who are interested or expert in your field of activity to put your name out there and so maximize your online reach.

  • Make money with affiliate marketing

You should put a lot of time and effort if you aspire to be a successful affiliate marketer. It can be very profitable if you choose the right niche and have already reached a good engagement on your account.

In case you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, I can explain it to you in simple terms. It is sharing the link of a particular product or service of a certain vendor that fits your niche and get a part of the revenue generated if someone clicks on the link and purchase that product or service. This link is specific to you only and easily trackable.


This image was taken from a blog on https://landerapp.com/ which explains types of affiliate marketing.

To turn from a newbie to a successful affiliate marketer, put a lot of time into learning how to master online marketing, release effective campaigns, and organize your performance. The Internet abounds with information on the essentials. Be careful not to stuff affiliate links into your Twitter profile because you may get flagged or suspended. You can use tools including M studio to schedule your tweets and save time. 

  • Make money with Twitter Ads

You are able to monetize your tweets or videos by getting paid when ads are shown in them. Media studio enables you to upload your contents in it, make a library, add different elements such as thumbnail and links to improve them and post them on Twitter. Just log in, check your eligibility and select what kind of ads you want to be shown in your contents. It doesn’t matter if you have a personal or business account.


This infographic was taken from an article on https://mobilemonkey.com/ which explains the reasons for using Twitter Ads.
  • Use Platforms that help you make money on Twitter

If you are looking for advertisers who will pay you for endorsing them on Twitter, some websites such as the following have already done it for you.

  • Sponsored Tweets

Sponsored Tweets is a well-known Twitter advertising platform providing you with a large number of available ads. You can use it only if your account is more than 60 days old and you have at least 50 followers and 100 tweets. You as a tweeter can set your price as you want, participate in a competition to attract your desired advertisers and earn money if you win.

Advertise will see your profile and they may choose you to publicize a particular campaign and pay you if you agree to tweet it out based on a pre-determined schedule. You need to showcase your interests to attract brands that you love.

  • PaidPerTweet

PaidPerTweet is another tool that connects you with lots of different advertisers that will pay you to spread the word on their business on Twitter. You should create a profile and wait for their offers.

Other similar tools and websites are TwitPub, PayWithaTweet, PayDotCom. Let us know in comments if you know any other platform.

Wrap it up

With regards to the above-mentioned ways on how to make money on Twitter, keep in mind that you might not get the desired results in a few months. Do not give up, always appreciate your efforts and celebrate small wins. Besides, do not rely exclusively on Twitter. Although Twitter is an amazing platform to make money, it is not the only one. Check if other social media platforms including Instagram or Facebook can also work for you.

How to become verified on Instagram?

It’s finally happening! It is no more waiting for Instagram to bless you with the blue badge. No more market for buying verification (Yes, people did that!). Now, everyone can apply for verification on Instagram. It will shortly be available to all, whether they are using a personal or business Instagram account. Of course, it doesn’t mean that we will all be verified, though. As you can see in the screenshot below, this process is intended to verify accounts for a “notable public figure, celebrities, global brands or entities it represents.”

While we all are valued, those with the most followers and greatest engagement rates do have the most to lose, so we should expect there to be some threshold of followers or engagement required to be accepted. The rest of us must keep on building our reach and followers until we qualify as well!

There is no harm in trying, and you can gain a lot if you get approved.

Benefits of being verified on Instagram

Does the verified blue badge really mean anything? It does! To be verified, you should upload some personal information which identifies you as a REAL person. Additionally, you get some cool perks which can make an actual difference in your Instagram marketing.

Here are some of the benefits of having blue badge and get verified on Instagram:

  • You would have early access to the new Instagram features
  • You can build trust
  • Prevent impersonation
  • Get more followers
  • Get more engagement
  • Make more money (since you would get more fans)
  • You can boost your business
  • You can increase the brand awareness
  • You can add link in Instagram story (swipe up)
  • Have opportunities to get more shares and mention by other verified accounts

If you are the least bit Insta-famous, you’ve likely been impersonated on the platform at least once. While you and your friends can report these issues, it’s frustrating, feels like a waste of time, and can make you suspicious of even authentic accounts. Having that blue badge is a reassurance to your visitors and followers that you are who you say you are. And trust is extremely important on social!

Verified accounts were the first ones who could link their Instagram stories to their blog posts, product listings, landing pages – just about anything! Now that you don’t necessarily need to have massive followers to get verified, we can all expect to be able to get a whole lot more traffic from Instagram!

Just remember to use a trackable link so you can find out where those clicks are coming from (you can get some help from iLink)

How to get verified on Instagram?

Before applying for blue badge, there are some prerequisites that you should meet. These are the number of followers, and some documents.

How many followers needed to get verified on Instagram

This is same for using web link on Instagram stories. Based on experience, there should be at least 10K followers to get the options when you sharing on stories. This is while, Instagram has written nowhere that there should be a certain number of followers to use links in stories.

What documents do I need to get Instagram verification?

  • Your driver’s license (with name and D.O.B)
  • Your passport (with name and D.O.B)
  • Your national ID card (with name and D.O.B)

But if you are applying for your business you should add your buisness’ documents too, such as:

1-Go to your Instagram profile

2-Tap on the menu

3-Tap on the “settings” gear

  • Your national ID card (with name and D.O.B)
  • Business tax filling

How to Teach your Kids to Be Smart about Social Media?

There is no avoiding social media for most parents these days. According to ACMA, only 45% of 8-11-year-olds were using social media about five years ago! This proportion increased to 60% in 2018, with many of the platforms being age-restricted (generally for 13+)

So, if you are trying hard to cut down social media from your family’s life, there are some preventative ways to keep your children safe on social media platforms.

Psychologists believe that the key is awareness and education. The first thing you need t do is educating yourself, then pass this information onto your kids.

 How to Teach your Kids to Be Smart about Social Media?

  1. Understanding the dangers of social media platforms
  • Privacy

You need to understand all the privacy settings in place to help protect your kids. If you have kids, they should have a private profile and a limited personal information on social media platforms. ( including their phone number and address) Also, not accepting requests from strangers is highly recommended.

Privacy settings are different on every platform. Make sure to study them before using the platform.

  • Cyberbullying

online bullying occurs even for primary students! Cyberbullying can come in many different forms, like harassment, unapproved photo sharing, hacking, public humiliation, exclusion, etc.

You must understand the different ways your kid can be victimized by online bullying, so you would know what to do.

  • Sexting

Young girls are facing increasing pressure to engage in the exchange of nude pictures, known as ‘sexting.’ Some young girls are suffering as a result of social media, often the result of ‘negotiating photos’

It’s important to realize that sexting does not just threaten your kid’s privacy; it can also lead to anxiety, bullying, depression, and humiliation.

  • Anxiety and Depression

While cyberbullying usually leads to emotional difficulties in kids, some studies imply that social media itself can begin anxiety or depression.

Spending 1 hour a day conversing on social networks decreases the possibility of being fully satisfied with life overall by nearly 14 percentage points. 

  • Addiction

If your kids lose interest in other actions, become upset or anxious when they can’t reach social media, or become continually distracted by social media, they may have a social media or technology addiction.

There are easy ways to stop this from happening, though, you should know that just using social media a lot doesn’t consider as an addiction. The addiction is when their use of social media prevents and interrupts their ability to function.

Now that you have educated yourself on the threats of social media, it’s time to concentrate on the kids.

2-What your kids need to know about social media

  • The dependability of posting

It can be a hard theory for children to understand – that their future selves may not want to broadcast the same personal data that they do right now. Make it easy for them, and if they can’t think of their future selves, remind them of their past.

Emphasize to your children the inescapable dependability of online posting and explain to them that what they post now could beat them in the future. 

  • Having empathy for others

Educate your children about compassion and encourage them to see how their behavior on social media may influence others; this will prevent them from joining in online bullying behaviors.

  • social media is not real

Children need to know that while social media profiles can be a representation of someone’s character, they are a very nicely curated one.

Notably, some photos can be damaging to young girls and set up nonsensical standards of beauty.

People don’t put up unattractive pictures of themselves, so merely there are pictures of beautiful people everywhere. This can affect your self-esteem, so having a perception that it’s edited and that it’s not real, and having that knowledge that it can change the way that you feel and what you see without even knowing it, is essential.

How parents can use social media?

Obviously, you are one of your children’s role model, so if you use social media platforms in the right way, children will learn it as well.

For example, if you are an Instagram user, you can use it for growing your business and earnin money. Then kids will learn about the benefits on using social media in the best way.

If you are a business or just want to earn money on social media, I recommend building your eCommerce store and sell easier than ever by using a service such as iLink.

With iLink you can build your dream online store store with ready themes and without needing any codes. Millions of people will see your products on Google, by adding product’s descriptions on iShop. Moreover, it offers beautiful and customizable design and lets you Change the color, font, design, etc.

  • Add categories
  • Discount system
  • Custom URL
  • Currency symbol
  • Background image
  • Multi products style
  • 24/7 support

Conclusion

Parents need to explain all the mentioned tips to their children and about the permanence of their posts, and the impact of their words. You should not rely on the school system to teach them these things, and sadly, social media safety is not being well addressed.

Below tips and tricks will help you get the most out of your Instagram bio and shine:

Instagram bio fonts

Most of the strange fonts you see in others’ profiles are in fact, symbols that can be found on Microsoft Word such as ®χ₽КΘ. I suggest not to use these symbols in your name if you want people to find you in search queries. Instead, give a different appearance to your bio by including them in your description of your hobbies, profession, skills, interests, etc.

Use different fonts on your Instagram bio

If you want to change Instagram bio font without inserting symbols, use tools, or third-party websites such as Fonts for Instagram. You can write whatever you want on the left and they will be converted to several fonts. Choose one of them, copy and paste it on your Instagram bio.

Bio quotes

Find cool text for your Instagram bio that is also representative of your personality, lifestyle, business, or brand. It can either be an inspiring quote, a funny text or a sentence made by your own, which is specific to you.

How to put a clickable link in Instagram bio?

Put the links to other social media accounts or other websites to drive more traffic to them. If you are wondering how you can use multiple links in your bio, I will tell you how. Use iLink which converts all of the URLs, no matter how many, into one single clickable link that can be used on your Instagram bio. You can also track the number of hits on each link and all of them as a whole.

Create an iLink account, choose a username, and design it as you want. The link will be like this: https://il.ink/blaccmass and when others click on it, a page like below appears.

Since you cannot put clickable links in captions, ask your followers to visit the link in bio for more information whenever relevant and necessary.

How to change Instagram name?

Your name field in the bio is searchable. So if you want to get noticed, choose a smart one. On the other hand, if you enjoy being out of sight or choosing a strange name with special characters seems more fun to you, go for it.  

How to make your IG bio centered (or put space on Instagram bio)?

Increase the visual appeal of your bio by center-aligning your profile bio. Although it may not be applicable for those whose bios are longer (because of the character limit and spaces are considered as characters), you can center your bio by putting spaces, followed by saving and checking again and again to reach the desired format.

Putting space was not available before for mobile devices, but now you can do it simply from your cellphone or desktop. Line breaks can also be added simply by tapping on the “Enter” or “Return” button on your keypad. If you need more changes on your bio you can use some online tools too.

I have also found a website apps4lifehost.com in which you can write Instagram bio or any other text on Instagram as you want and copy and paste to the Instagram.

Keywords are important in bio

Keywords will help people understand who you are, what you do, how you help, or what your interests are. Choose those that are consistent with your brand purpose and can be beneficial to making visitors into followers, considering the short attention span of many individuals.

explain your career and interests in Instagram bio using keywords

To conclude

Make yourself stand out on Instagram by going beyond ordinary and having a more creative bio section. Although it is recommended not to risk making your bio too difficult to read, using special characters and strange formatting can be to your advantage in terms of attracting more followers.

Increase and upgrade your knowledge of social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest, and YouTube. In order to provide an effective social media marketing service, you need to know how these social networks work, their algorithms, which industries are more active in each and how users engage in contents.

There are tons of free contents and several online courses about marketing on social networks; take the time to learn at least one or two of the skills such as content marketing, advertising techniques, search engine optimization, monitoring social media metrics. You don’t have to be a know-it-all; you will expand your knowledge or hire experts in the near future.

2. Develop a business plan

Detail the process and the goals you have by creating a business plan. Pick an industry or niche at first; it should be the one that you are familiar with or interested in and, of course, the one that brings you money. Try to choose a name for your company that somehow represents your field of activity and gives visitors the impression you are aiming for. A logo is also required to establish your brand.

As mentioned above, there is no need to master all digital marketing skills from the very beginning. Pick your service offering(s) from the below list and set the price for each:

  • Web development
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Pay Per Click
  • Content marketing
  • Influencer marketing
  • Digital advertising

Note that many brands prefer to hire a full-service social media marketing agency so that they can outsource developing and building their online presence via going to one single place. So think about taking all other services after some time.

After starting your business officially and getting a license or necessary special permits, build your website. Create the right SEO-friendly contents to rank higher in Google and boost your visibility to the target audience. Join the right social media platform(s) to drive more traffic to your site and generate more leads.

Testimonials can also do wonders for you. Once people see how much you helped promote their business, they start to spread the word. Put some of these testimonials on view to gain more credibility. If you don’t have any in the beginning, perform some free jobs at first or implement some services at a reduced price in exchange for a testimonial.

What is more, consider hiring an accountant or purchasing financial software to handle your invoices, taxes, and payroll to make things run more smoothly.

3. Start reaching out to businesses

There are many approaches whereby you can find or attract businesses of your chosen niche. Some of them are as below:

  • Build a landing page to grow your email list
  • Leverage social media platforms to showcase your company
  • Don’t forget to find connections in LinkedIn
  • Create Facebook ads
  • Get busy on Quora
  • Use guest blogging

Once you find them, start sending messages or emails to them to encourage them to buy from you. Your primary intention should be providing value; if they feel you are only looking for the money, they won’t take you seriously and will clear off.

Try to arrange a meeting with decision-makers of potential clients to build trust and convince them why they need to do social media marketing. Be honest and transparent. If it’s within budget, bring in skilled marketers that can communicate effectively and build up strong relationships with would-be customers.

The professional marketers are well aware that not all the people react similarly. Some are prone to react positively to emotions while others are more realistic and you should infuse logic into conversations you have with them. Hire them to exert a better influence on prospects and generate more leads.

4. Give your clients the data and results

Negotiate an agreement for the results your customers desire to get. Try to replace vintage metrics by actionable ones, so that you have more realistic hope of success and don’t waste time, money and efforts.

Clients will surely need proof that their investment is worth the time and the money. So openly show them that the campaigns and strategies are working and be willing to listen to their recommendations and accept them if applicable.

Conclusion

It can be intimidating to launch your own social media marketing agency. You can’t find any entrepreneur or business owner that says it would be easy, but give it a shot if it fits your personality and qualifications and expect to see the result in the near future. Develop great teamwork and do the steps wisely and patiently. Make use of tools and hire people to increase efficiency.
