How to Beat Your Competition Using Social Media Marketing

Social MediaIf you start a business in a crowded industry, one thing that will help you in growing your small business is effective marketing. A lot of business owners are forever complaining of how competitive their line of operation is and how their competitors are moving up the ladder of success. Instead of folding your arms and complaining you should gather all resources that you can use to give your business an edge over your competitors.

One of the most effective tools I have used in marketing my business is social media. A lot of people are using this platform to socialize and connect and the best you can do as a business owner is to take your business where your customers are. I realized that you will not only get a chance to market your business on social media, but you will also beat your competitors. How? Here are some tips I learned that will help you in pushing your business a head of all the competition around you.

1. Strategy, Strategy And Strategy
Social media is a bandwagon that is highly tempting to jump on and this means that a lot of businesses are using this tool to market their products and services. Most of them end up complaining that social media does not work, correction; it is not that it did not work; facts are they did not put enough into it to make it work for them. To succeed, you will need two key things, an understanding of what your competitors are doing on the networks and the type of audience they are targeting. First learn as much as you can about what those a head of you are doing and use what you learn to beat them at their own game by making your marketing campaigns better and more targeted.

2. Solid Content
Another important lesson I learnt in social media marketing is that it is not an affair of jumping in and shouting about your products and services. When you do it this way, no one will listen and you will have ticked the social media marketing box and moved on to other things. Don’t be just another shouting voice, focus on giving your audience solid content, something they are interested in and would like their friends to know about. Good content may take time to create but it is worth every second. Make sure you include high quality videos, images, offers, promotions, rewards, and a little good humor to spice up the content.

3. Have A Working Structure
Structure for me involves anything that helps you analyzing your campaigns and cuts down the time that you spend on social media. I gathered a number of tools such as Google analytics, Lead Forensic and HootSuite to create an engaging social media marketing campaign.
It is better to spend a week structuring and strategizing to create an effective marketing campaign instead of posting a lot of content at random and not saying anything in the process. With better social media marketing, staying a head of your competitors is an easy affair.

  1. The Social Media is not helping with this. Maybe because it is anti Semitic and pro-Islam, the modern slave Cultrue.

  2. The Israel Longhorn project is helping Israeli and East African Farms and Ranches

    Ø Longhorns crossbreed to Israeli cattle will create a hybrid (heterosis). This hybrid will have high quality meat and be able to function in Israel’s desert environment. Improving Israel’s cattle industry and its quality of the beef.

    Ø Longhorns can eat invasive shrubs and cacti, decreasing Galilean fire hazards, and lower their feed costs.

    Ø Longhorns can go further and longer with less water.

    Ø Longhorns have higher reproduction rates and very low loss rates allowing Israeli ranchers to use fewer cattle and get higher incomes.

    Ø Longhorns have excellent calving and mothering abilities; they can produce more & healthier calves up to 20 years.

    Ø Longhorns have horns and know how to use them to protect themselves and their calves from both human and animal predators.

    Ø Longhorns will first threaten the predator giving the jackal and the wolf an opportunity to reconsider.

    Ø Decreasing the amount of poison used and shootings of both jackal and wolves.

    Ø Longhorn will lower the high theft and loss rate. Needing fewer cowboys can protect the herd.

    Ø Longhorns are highly resistant to diseases reducing their medial costs. This increases the amount of cattle that are suitable for kosher meat, fewer signs of disease and parasites.

    Ø Longhorns even though they are dangerous cattle they can be trained to both voice and behavior commands. Allowing ranchers and even their children to work with them safely.

    Ø Longhorns will decrease attacks on the ranches and decreasing the need for Israeli Border Police. Police instead of arresting the thieves will be
    rescuing them from the sharp horns of the Texas Longhorns. Changing the role of Israeli Border Police into rescuers.

    Ø Longhorns can help increase agriculture production in Africa and decrease hunger.

    Ø Longhorn can decrease amount antibiotics and anti parasitic medications used, as they are highly resistant to both diseases and parasites.

    Ø Longhorn can help decrease the cost of meat and improve its quality. Requiring fewer antibiotics and less indications of disease in their meat.

    Ø Longhorn can increase the income of the family famer and decrease their costs.

    Ø We can alleviate the problem of illegal immigration from Africa. By setting up clinics where African migrants can learn the cattle trade and set up ranches at home in Africa. The Israel army can help train them to defend themselves, their village and homes creating a sort of African Pioneers.

    Ø We will encourage African villagers to create self-sustainable cattle herds then with their extra cattle use them to help the next village to do the same. And repeat this over and over again.

    Ø We can use Israel cattle industry to encourage young American Jews to train in Texas, and make Aliyah to work the land. Beit Shemesh area is a hot spot for American immigrants and it would be an ideal place to absorb American cattle ranchers.

    Ø Employ graduates from Israeli Agriculture high schools giving them some work before they begin the army service. Reemploy them upon completion of their Army service.

    Ø Longhorns will be used to help produce meat for those in Israel who cannot even afford a little meat for their Shabbat Dinner.

    Ø Teaching Israeli ranchers Stockmanship, a method of moving cattle without stress using the cow or herd’s body space. This improves meat quality, increasing tenderness, increasing meat quantity. It decreases disease, meat deformity and discoloring. There are fewer dark cutters therefore, more kosher cattle.

    Ø Teaching Israeli ranchers Strategic Grazing a method rotating grazing using every part of your pasture, one section at a time allowing grass and plant life to restore itself.
