Today there are new startups popping up all over the place and even if you’ve got a one-of-a-kind concept and an amazing product it can be hard to stand out in the crowd. The new companies that we’re seeing rise to the top of the startup chain are those that know how to get the word out and build a social media buzz.
The problem is, a lot of startups are focused on the technology end of things and, as a result, the founders and first employees are engineers, programmers and high tech-savvy people, rather than social media-savvy people. Lucky for them, online course platform Udemy has put together a great infographic with social media marketing tips to teach startups how to leverage social media to get the word out.
‘Social Media Marketing For Startups’ covers everything from how to build a buzz leading up to your launch to creating your seed list, the importance of the blogger, interacting with your fan base and more. They also list the pros and cons of the most popular distribution platforms—Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, how to track your results, and what you should be measuring in order to quantify your social impact.
Check out the full infographic below and let us know what you think. Startups—have you been doing the things Udemy recommends or has this infographic inspired you to change your social media strategy?
