A successful Ugandan social media mogul, who is best known on Twitter as @Ugaman01 AKA “The Trend Setter” has been very vibrant and very influential on social media for years and gained recognition across Africa and the world at large on Social media and through social media.
One will ask what Social media marketing is, well its refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites.
The Social media itself is a catch-all term for sites that may provide radically different social actions. For instance, if you take Twitter, It’s a social site designed to let people share short messages or “updates” with others and so as Facebook and others.
@Ugaman01 finally dropped his long awaited secrets of his success as Social media Marketer and below are his 10 Fundamental Laws of Successful Social Media Marketing and since we found it very useful we thought it wise to also share with our readers.
According to him, these laws have been tested and tried and assures a 100% guarantee that they will greatly get everyone who pay attention to it a better level with their social media.
1. The Law of Listening.
Success with social media and content marketing requires more listening and less talking. Read your target audience’s online content and join discussions to learn what’s important to them. Only then can you create content and spark conversations.
2. The Law of Focus.
It’s better to specialize than to be a jack-of-all-trades. A highly-focused social media and content marketing strategy intended to build a strong brand has a better chance for success than a broad strategy that attempts to be all things to all people.
3. The Law of Quality.
Quality trumps quantity. It’s better to have 1,000 online connections who read, share and talk about your content with their own audiences than 10,000 connections who disappear after connecting with you the first time.
4. The Law of Patience.
Social media and content marketing success doesn’t happen overnight. While it’s possible to catch lightning in a bottle, it’s far more likely that you will need to commit to the long haul to achieve results with Social Media.
5. The Law of Compounding.
If you publish amazing, quality content & work to build your online audience of quality followers, they will share it with their audiences. This sharing of your content opens new entry points for search engines like Google to find it in keyword searches.
6. The Law of Influence.
Spend time finding the online influencers in your market who have quality audiences and are likely to be interested in your products, services and business. Connect with those people and work to build relationships with them.
7. The Law of Value.
If you spend all your time on the social Web directly promoting your products and services, people will stop listening. You must add value to the conversation. Focus less on conversions and more on creating amazing content and developing relationships.
8. The Law of Acknowledgment.
You wouldn’t ignore someone who reaches out to you in person so don’t ignore them online. Building relationships is one of the most important parts of social media marketing success, so always acknowledge every person who reaches out to you.
9. The Law of Accessibility.
Don’t publish your content and then disappear. Be available to your audience. That means you need to consistently publish content and participate in conversations. Followers online can be fickle and they won’t hesitate to replace you if you disappear.
10. The Law of Reciprocity.
You can’t expect others to share your content and talk about you if you don’t do the same for them. So, a portion of the time you spend on social media should be focused on sharing and talking about content published by others.
I hope you enjoyed and don’t be selfish share with others and let all build our social empire together.
Much Thanks to @Entrepreneur and @SMExaminer with great respect to man like @Ugaman01.
