8 Best Practices to Promote your Business on Social Media

Almost three-quarters of small-business owners are confident in their social media strategies. Still need help with yours? Try following these 8 tips.

 

It seems strange to think there was ever a time when social media wasn’t an integral part of growing a small business. While many entrepreneurs still struggle with how to best use social media to engage their audiences and promote their businesses, there are signs that they’re gaining confidence in their social media skills. In 2012, 54 percent of small-business owners, who participated in a survey administered by Constant Contact, reported they needed help with social media. This year, that number dropped to 45 percent. This confidence seems to be translating into success, with 72 percent saying that their marketing efforts across the channels that matter, including social, email, mobile and Web, are working.

Socially savvy entrepreneurs know that it’s all about engaging the right audiences with valuable content. The online community has little tolerance for self-promoters who view social media as a means to free advertising. Given this, small-business owners face a challenge when it comes to striking a balance in using social media to engage and promote.

 

Promotion and engagement are really two sides of the same coin. Engagement is rooted in consistently sharing insight and providing value every time you connect with a customer. This establishes credibility while building trust and inspiring customers to tell their friends about you. Promotion extends your engagement efforts by presenting a valuable offer that’s based on your customers’ interests and needs. Social media amplifies your efforts so you can be found and engage a wider audience to grow your business.

 

To put it all together, here are eight best practices for successfully engaging customers and promoting your small business through social media.

 

1. Enhance the rewards for virtual check-ins.
For a specific period of time, double the points each time a customer checks in on Foursquare and triple the points each time he or she brings a friend. Their friends on social networks will see when they’ve checked in while you expand your reach exponentially.

 

 

 

2. Ask conversation-starter questions.
Most people enjoy sharing their opinions, so ask Facebook fans to weigh in on topics that are relevant to your business and interesting to them. For example, a fitness center may ask fans to vote on their favorite summer sports in order to be entered into a drawing to win private lessons for them and a friend who joins the club. The questions should engage fans and inspire them to refer business while giving the business owner great insight.

 

3. Share your expertise.
Post little-known, fun facts in the form of questions with a special offer presented to the first person to answer correctly.

 

4. Create a Pinterest board.
Make sure the board has eye-catching visuals and run a contest through it that will inspire and reward customers for their participation. Be sure to encourage them to re-pin and create their own boards that reflect the initial contest for additional social amplification of your campaign.

 

5. Follow the one-in-seven rule.
This rule is where only one of every seven posts overtly promotes your business. The remaining six should be focused on sharing valuable content, including posts from the community. This doesn’t mean you can’t promote your business in those other posts; just be sure you pair it with great content.

 

6. Provide value.
While including fun posts that reflect your personality is a must, it’s important to create content that benefits your followers. That can mean posting tips on best practices, providing access to white papers, or offering special deals on products or services.

 

7. Avoid syndicated messages.
While you can use tools that allow you to write one message and have it appear on a variety of social media outlets, you risk losing the sincerity behind the message. You can use similar language as you promote your offer on different sites; just be sure to change up the words while reflecting the tone of each network.

 

If you find that your customers are scattered across a variety of networks, focus your efforts where they’re most active. Not sure? Ask. Otherwise, you may waste a lot of time skimming the surface of multiple networks with little results.

 

When small-business owners apply these best practices to social media engagement and promotion, we’ll likely see that already impressive 72 percent success statistic continue to rise.

Reasons to Choose Opencart

10 reasons why OpenCart is a powerful but easy-to-use platform for creating your online store.

1. IT’S EASY FOR DEVELOPMENT.
OpenCart is a system based on the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern. It’s easy to develop extensions or customize OpenCart if you know PHP and MySQL. To make a new extension, create four files: Controller, Model (or use an existing Model), View, and a language file.

See below for an example:

OpenCart file extension example
2. IT’S EASY TO USE.
Similar to other platforms like Shopify and PrestaShop, OpenCart has a very friendly administrative dashboard. All of the menus are very straightforward and user-friendly: Catalog, Sales, Extensions, System.

If you choose OpenCart 2, you’ll also get a mobile-first interface and the ability to use your admin panel on a tablet or smartphone.

3. IT’S EASY TO MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR OPENCART STORE.
You should definitely hire someone who knows PHP, MySQL, and HTML with CSS. This is a similar stack to e-commerce platforms like Magento, Bigcommerce and PrestaShop and there are many developers on Upwork who are PHP and can help you with OpenCart customization.

4. IT HAS A LOT OF DOCUMENTATION, FORUMS, AND ARTICLES.
As a famous CMS for e-commerce, OpenCart has well-discussed tools. A lot of information exists on Stackoverflow.com and opencart.com.

As of today, there are a total of 539,304 posts in the forum, with 126,046 topics and over 90,000 members. If you have any issues with your OpenCart site, you can always search for a fix or advice in official forum. Chances are, you’ll find the help you’re looking for.

5. There are thousands of extensions and modules.
There’s no reason to develop your own module until you’ve checked the forums and store for existing OpenCart modules. You’ll find modifications, new features, parsers, marketing tools, etc. Prices start from $10 per module, while some are even free. The official OpenCart website sells 1,2325 extensions, modules, and templates:

6. IT HAS VIRTUAL FILE STRUCTURES: VQMOD AND OCMOD.
Making changes to the core of the CMS is a bad idea, but sometimes in a custom coding project it’s unavoidable. The reason why it’s tricky is that editing the core will cause it to be impossible to update, or an update will cause some of the important changes to be erased. And you can’t not update!

Why? Because there are a lot of bugs or back doors inside every CMS that are easily fixed by updating the core. To make this easier, OpenCart has adopted a version of vQmod created by Google. It can help you edit files in the core of the CMS… without any changes! Special files store instructions for changes which are carried out inside core (or any other files, like extensions or language files). Original files are not changed; rather, vQmod creates a virtual copy of them and they’re overwritten by the vQmod instructions PHP file. You can read more about vQmod here.

7. IT HAS READY-TO-USE TEMPLATES.
If you don’t have a big budget or even time to develop individual designs for your store, you can leverage ready-to-use templates. Many famous online web content stores like Templatemonster.com or themeforest.com sell hundreds of themes for OpenCart.

OpenCart template design example
8. IT’S EASY AND FAST TO MAKE YOUR SITE MULTI-LANGUAGE.
You can translate OpenCart to any language in the world—it doesn’t matter if it’s right-to-left (RTL) or left-to-right (LTR), hieroglyph, or even Galactic Basic Language from Star Wars. OpenCart is a language-neutral CMS thanks to UTF-8. Inside the admin panel folder under “Catalog,” you’ll find “language” folders that store translations. Translation files are just .php files with text variable values.

Here’s a sample file translated into Bulgarian.

// Heading
$_[‘heading_title’] = ‘???????????’;

// Text
$_[‘text_account’] = ‘??????’;
$_[‘text_register’] = ‘???????????’;
$_[‘text_your_details’] = ‘?????? ?????’;
$_[‘text_private’] = ‘?????? ????’;
$_[‘text_company’] = ‘?????’;
$_[‘text_your_details’] = ‘?????? ?????’;
$_[‘text_company_details’] = ‘????? ?? ???????’;

Every store can have an unlimited number of languages!

9. THERE’S ONE MORE “MULTI”: MULTI-STORE MODE.
OpenCart’s multi-store mode is very useful. It makes it easy to manage several online stores even if they have different:

Design
Products
Modules
Customer databases
Languages
You manage all of your stores from one admin panel, similar to Magento’s dashboard that allows you to manage multiple stores from one place. Learn more about multi-store mode.

10. IT’S SEO-FRIENDLY.
Google likes OpenCart. I have helped dozens of OpenCart e-commerce stores boost their rankings in Google. Create an SEO URL from scratch (http://store.com/category/product/) and you can even choose the suffix (like “.html” or “/”).
