The Importance of Creating a SEO and Social Plan that Works Together Part 1

You know that both SEO and Social Media are integral to online marketing strategy, but did you know that using the two together leads to a powerful collaboration that will benefit both concepts? A successful strategy pairing SEO and Social Media can impact your dealership’s promotion, content creation, and brand management.

Search engine developers nationwide have been working hard to ascertain that search engines provide the best, most trusted, valuable content possible. Today, search engines ultimately focus on quality content with the best authority and relevance. Due to this SEO evolution, it’s important to allow your SEO and online marketing strategy to support each other to stay competitive in the marketplace.

So how do you combine the SEO and Social Media? Use link building, post promotion, strong content, and engagement:

1. SEO Link Building and Promoted Posts

As we know the goal of SEO is to provide bigger, better traffic to your site. But how is that done? By providing strong content and linking from it. The easiest way to pair SEO and Social Media in this case is to use social media promotions, such as Facebook Promoted Posts, to get content out there, therefore creating many more high-quality links.

When promoting content on Facebook, you are able to reach a larger, focused demographic, just by paying $5 to $25 dollars. Facebook allows you to research the demographic, select the right demographic for your content, and then post it, share it, and link back to it. This is a prime example of using social media with the power of SEO link building.

Keep in mind the following points when you begin using Social Media to promote your SEO.

  • Your content must be good to make progress with this method. People will not link to content that isn’t interesting or pertinent.
  • To continue link building, you must engage with readers. That means you need to respond to comments in a timely manner.
