Social Media has become a dominant force in our world ranging from personal socialization to business marketing. Over the past 5 years or so businesses have been putting more and more effort and resources into using social media in the aim of building their brands and marketing their products and services. It has clearly been a revolution to be able to add a great photo and a small paragraph or two and be able to share with your friends and fans reaching 100’s or sometime 1000’s of people in real time.
With all the work companies spend on social media the one the area that does not generally benefit from social media posts is the owner’s own website. Quite often the website will link their visitors to their active social media pages or you share a widget with a latest post and links. Generally, the traffic from your website to social media is one way. The problem is once a client or prospects gets to social media you no longer have control of that session. Social Media can bombard visitors with advertising and other non-related information distracting them from your mission while social media policies can also be changed at any time greatly effecting the users experience.
So what If we could maximize the content you are producing in all your social media accounts and then share each post back to your website in a permanent stream?
Introducing Social Media Stream!
We have just commenced implement Social Media Streams to our client’s website (works in both Joomla and WordPress). There are many benefits to the social media stream on your website but here are key ones:
- All your website visitors get to see all your posts not just what social media allows or boosts.
- The social post opens a new page for readership but does not end your website session.
- The social media stream looks amazing on desktop as well as your mobile device.
- Supports Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Pintrest, Vimeo and more
- The showcasing of all social media’s makes you company look like a marketing machine!
Also you can check out our first two clients to have the social media stream setup – https://www.VisitWilCO.com and https://www.RestorationandWellness.com – in both cases that stream is at the bottom of the home page.
Setting up social media stream on your website takes around 4 hours and a small annual licensing fee.
