Leveraging Social Sharing to Drive Traffic and Revenue

Integrating social sharing into your website gives you an incredible opportunity to get your content in front of a large audience quickly. Using incentives can help get the shares you are looking for.

Join Jon Hainstock and Ben Bartling, founders of Tailwind Creative and creators of Juxseo as well as Mike Luedke, co-founder of Offermation as they present some highly effective strategies they used to leverage social sharing.

They will demonstrate:

  • the social sharing incentivization tactics they implemented
  • how social sharing resulted in more traffic and revenue
  • potential issues you may face when implementing social sharing tactics

    Great meetup. I appreciate tailwindcreative sharing how they use social media/marking in their business. The comparisons between Groupon and their Offermation were not as obvious. I see Offermation offering the local and personal touch a big advantage. Similar to selling insurance Progressive online vs AllState and agents. There some things that people fee better about doing with another person. Thanks Steve R for your hardwork and UStream tips.

    Worked out well, with lots of interesting material. It will take a while to digest all of it, but I feel like I learned a lot from this get-together.

    I run a social website already, where users activity on my site is my number one priority. AKA them returning often, commenting more, participating, etc. While if I, for example, ran a web design company and was selling my services, I would want to utilize sharing to not necessarily increase on-site activity, but instead to boost my clientele.

    Matt, what's the diff?

    June 27, 2012

  • Matt K.

    Is this meetup more for businesses offering services utilizing sharing (increasing clientele due to sharing), or building a more social website (increasing activity due to sharing)?

    Ben Pett said he cannot make it tonight. Perhaps an admin can mark him as not attending so another spot can open up?
