Use Social Media Marketing to Sell More Dropship Items!

dropship items social media marketingDid you know that you can use social media marketing to sell more dropship items in your home business?

Social media is the happening thing these days and by all indications, it is in no danger of fading away any time soon, if ever. In fact, more social media sites are popping up all the time!

If you aren’t harnessing the awesome power of social media to market your ecommerce home business and sell more dropship items, you are definitely missing the boat.

So, how can you leverage social media to sell more dropship items?

Here are some tips that should provide you with ideas of how to successfully utilize social media marketing, even if you have yet to get started in even a small way:

  • Don’t put all of your social media marketing eggs into one basket. Instead of confining your marketing efforts to only one social site, branch out and try to do at least two, preferably three. Facebook and Twitter are basically two must-haves and if you have the time and inclination to tackle a third one; base your decision of which one to choose on what your dropship items are. For instance, if you are dropshipping business supplies, you might want to check out LinkedIn. By the same token, if your dropship items are cooking and baking products, you might do very well by establishing a social presence on Pinterest.

  • While you don’t want to use social media marketing on just one site, you don’t want to over do it and spread yourself too thin, either. It is much better to do two or three sites well than try to take on too many and not do it well. There is a fine line here and you will have to experiment some to find out what works for you.

  • Use the free social media tools that can help you organize, coordinate, track and streamline your marketing efforts. There are several available, such as HootSuite and TweetDeck, as well as others, that will be immensely helpful to your social media marketing campaigns.

  • Be consistent. You cannot simply join a social community and then vanish. You have to keep an oar in the water, so to speak, in order to gain maximum benefit from social media marketing for your dropship business. It is preferable to post something on each site you are using at least once a day and more if you can manage it. Some of the free social media tools will let you schedule posts and tweets, by the way.

  • Don’t be too salesy on the social sites. Yes, you want to market and promote your dropship business but you don’t want to turn people off with too much sales hype, either. Offer something of value to the community. It might be something funny, educational, informative, interesting, or whatever…so long as it is valuable content. This will also help you with Google and the other search engines as they crawl the social sites to pick up good content.

Social media marketing is a great way to build and promote your home business and sell more dropship items!
