Persuasion In Social Media to Engage Users


Robert Cialdini wrote a book on marketing in 1984 in which he explained the six key principles of persuasion. Despite having been written three decades ago, the persuasion concept found in the book still holds true today. The concept can be applied to social media in marketing products or services. Persuasion also is great for keeping users and followers engaged. Let’s closely examine these six principles of persuasion so that you can add them to your social media tactics.

Reciprocity is based on the idea of giving back. Basically, if someone does you a favor, you should do them one in return. What applies in your social life also applies on social media. You could greatly benefit from dedicating a few minutes of your time responding to your followers instead of just broadcasting your business-related messages. Doing this on a regular basis would help you gain their attention and compel them to return the favor.

How brand affects your SEO ranking and how to use it

How does brand affect your SEO ranking? This is a question that’s often pondered upon by webmasters. Most fail to make a connection between the two at all. Any webmaster who knows how Google algorithms and indexing work recognizes that there’s no way to measure the popularity of a brand. Yet, there’s constant talk of brand and its relationship to SEO ranking.
