    Social media allows for the quick establishment of credibility and authority, increasing the chances of people clicking on your links or eventually doing business with you. Its also useful for A/B testing to determine the most effective CTAs to implement on your site.

Quotes

  • "We like to use social media as our A/B testing ground to build brand awareness, build relationships, and really dial into what people are actually asking, and not just based on the pure keyword research on the front end." - Matt Tompkins

  • "With social media, you can instantly establish credibility and authority without proof. People see you in a video and assume you're credible, increasing the chances of them clicking on your link or doing business with you." - Matt Tompkins

  • "All social media platforms today are based on engagement. If you post something and nobody engages with it because you don't have the optimal keywords or hashtags in there, it's just not going to be seen by anybody." - Matt Tompkins

  • "A common mistake is trying to be on six, seven different social platforms out of the gate. Start with your primary channel where your ideal customers spend the most time, then add the next." - Matt Tompkins
