3 Ways to integrate Social Media into your website

 

We regularly see people using Social Media platforms, sometimes really well, but without any real integration into their overall online strategy, connecting one with another and to their website.  Yes, we’ve clicked through to have a look!!

That’s what’s good about Social Media.  People interested in you, your business and what you’re saying WILL sometimes follow the links on your Social Media posts or profiles to find out more about you!  What about the other way round.  When they come to your website, can they find, follow and interact with you socially?

Here’s how you can integrate social media into your website relatively easily.

1.  Add follow buttons.  So they can connect with you, keep in touch or just watch what you’re doing.

2.  Add Share buttons.  So they can share with their contacts what you are posting about.

3.  Show your streams.  So they can see easily what else you are posting on your social media channels.

You can get buttons from each of the social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+.  If you aren’t able to do this yourself, ask your website  developer to do this for you!

There are many sites, separate to the social media networks themselves offering to make all the buttons for you. FREE! For instance, you could try AddThis or Social Button Maker.

Social Media Examiner show here, how to ‘Customize your Share buttons‘.

If you want to create streams (showing the current posts/conversations going on on your Social Media channels) then you might consider creating them individually through the social media platforms themselves again, or try Social Stream Widget.com.   You could even have a whole page of your website dedicated to all your social media platform streams with RebelMouse.

Making it easy for your visitors to connect, share and engage with you on Social Media can only make it work for you quicker, easier and better for you.
