Post by Jess Kuykendall, Copywriter
Social media is more than just another tool to create an all-encompassing marketing strategy. It's become the most cost-efficient method of driving sales. And, leveraging social media creates brand awareness, encourages social sharing, drives inbound leads, and also contributes to an overflowing sales funnel.1

Professionals, industry leaders, and even your competitors use LinkedIn, so engaging on LinkedIn can be beneficial in building relationships via daily updates without necessarily spamming your peers and target. Plus, since LinkedIn acts as a syndication site, your original content has the opportunity to become featured on the site and shared to other viewers and sites. This will naturally lead readers back to your site with the possibility of new leads.2


  • LinkedIn Publishing3 – push your content and insights through posts. This will establish you as an authority
  • Get on SlideShare4 – create slide decks that are relevant to your target, share them on LinkedIn, and make sure to include a call-to-action
  • On Twitter, where millions of people congregate, you can deliver a short, shareable message in real-time, allowing you to interact with communities and amplify your brand presence. Using an automation program can curate Twitter engagement that takes Twitter handles for people who've recently followed, re-tweeted, and are engaged with your brand, and tweets thank-you messages automatically.5

    Here are a few different methods to generate leads on Twitter:

  • Use Twitter Cards – allows customers/users to easily and securely share their email address without leaving Twitter7
  • Create Events – leverage Twitter chats, Ask Me Anything (AMA), and other time-sensitive events
  • Take advantage of resellerCONNECT's marketing portal, which offers syndicated content from top vendors such as Microsoft, Brocade, Cisco, and many more. From the portal you can view and choose vendors' Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn posts to push to your Twitter feed. This is free, targeted content to help boost your feed and engage your customers.
