Adapted from “9 Ways to Transform Your Website Into a Social Media Hub” by Social Media Examiner
Here are nine examples of how you can integrate your social media activity into your website for maximum results.
#1: Add social media buttons to your home page
By getting someone to follow you on Twitter, become LinkedIn with you, or subscribe to your YouTube channel, you have the opportunity to keep the lines of communication open long after they’ve left your website.
#2: Connect your blog with your website
Whether your blog shares a domain with your website or not, you can improve the interactivity of your website by teasing your blog posts from your home page.
#3: Embed videos on your website
Embed a video on your website to bring your offerings to life.
#4: Make your website shareable
Retweet buttons and Facebook Like buttons aren’t just for blogs. You can add them to any page of your website to get visitors to share the content more easily with their networks.
#5: Add your presentations to your website
If you market your business through public speaking, you can maximize your results by putting your presentations on your site.
#6: Socially bookmark new content
As you add new articles or archive your email newsletters to your site, make sure that you add them to appropriate social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon, Reddit and Delicious. These popular sites can drive huge amounts of traffic to your website in a short period of time.
#7: Add a Facebook Like box to your website
Adding a Facebook Like box to your site adds accelerant to the idea of social proof. Visitors can quickly see how many people have liked your business on Facebook, get a sense of your level of commitment to social media (by the posts you’ve added to your wall), and may even spy some of their friends and connections through the Like box.
#8: Feed your website
If the framework of your website is fairly static, you can still keep it fresh by adding feeds from your blog, Facebook, Twitter and just about every social media platform that generates an RSS feed.
#9: Use QR codes to drive traffic
Whether you post QR codes on one of your social media profiles or in the real world (i.e., direct mail, a business card or poster) you can use them to drive people to your website.
