However, marketing professionals have a tough job in their hands to focus their attention on ways to increase the conversions for businesses. The following strategies could help companies to better target and acquire new customers.

Engage With Customers

This engagement with the users would make them take an action such as ‘Like’, ‘Dislike’ ‘share’ , ‘Retweet’ ‘+1’ etc. which in turn will result in more visibility. Asking questions or polls is a great way to understand what the users think about your product and/or services. These feedback provide you an opportunity to improve on your products and services and develop new strategies.

Relevant and Unique Content

Sharing valuable information and providing a review of that information increases your credibility and reputation among your fans/followers. Your connections start growing and your opinion is valued more.

Use Facebook Offers To Attract Leads
Facebook offers are a good way to focus on social media marketing. These offers can be set from the Facebook page and work differently compared to Facebook ads. The news feed of Facebook carry these offers can be targeted towards genuine audience.

Engage Your Email Subscribers
eMail subscribers can be invited to follow your Facebook page or Pinterest account. Putting up an autoresponder would enable you to send such offers to new subscribers and keep them engaged. The point is to provide high quality offers and promotions rather than quantity.

Connect Through LinkedIn
