As a business owner, you need to build your brand online and offline. One of the ways you can build your brand online is to use social media. Social media is a great way to get your name out there and start to get your content circulating and shared among friends and fans. Social media platforms are great to use in order to be everywhere online and stand out from your competition. If you know your target market is on Facebook, why not be there too?

Sharing your content throughout the many different social media platforms will help your website get found more easily in the search engines. There are 2 parts to this strategy: 1) You will be sharing your fresh content to a loyal following who can look at your website, find what they’re looking for and purchase your products and services. 2) When you are getting traffic circulating through your site, the search engines will view your site as an authority site and give your site priority in the search engine rankings.

If your content is relevant and of good quality, your viewers and followers will most likely stay for a longer period of time on your page, which will help boost your rankings in the search engines. If you have a poor bounce rate, your ranking could drop. (Find out more about rank dropping factors here)
