Promoting your content
Social media allows you to not only get creative with how you share your content but also how many different platforms you can use to share it. By using print, photo, audio, and video, you are able to drive traffic back to the main content on your website. Having access to different social media channels, you are able to use them to not only further push your content but also market your work as well. One of the best ways to drive traffic back to your site is to take the highest-producing pieces of content that you have on your website and create more content tailored for your social media audience.
Using social media, you can collaborate with local brands and companies and cross-promote. If you have a company or blog, use your local surroundings and geotag your location for people to find you easily. Hosting local events in neighborhood-specific locations will help you meet potential clients or viewers (depending on what your website is about) and expand your network. Using the blog on your website, create content that is locally relevant. Of course, record this engagement and add it to your social media channels.
Using social media can help your audience find you more easily and have people with much larger followings, also known as influencers, link your website to theirs, which can be an instant boost to your followership and eventually lead to sales. It can help you get the momentum you need to reach more followers and grow your audience. Using social media is also useful because it attracts more external websites to yours. That’ll give your website more diversity, which Google will take note of; it’s a point in your direction. Keep in mind the quality of your content needs to be top-notch, or else it will not seem competitive to other similar sites. It’ll make you seem sketchy and untrustworthy. High-quality content can make or break your ability to grow your audience.
The best thing that social media does for your brand is give you direct access to your ideal audience. You are able to tailor your content however you want to communicate with whomever you want. By consistently producing content and engaging and interacting with your audience, you will slowly start building a following. More eyes will become attracted to you and your website. Using platforms such as Buffer, Hootsuite, or Sprout Social, you are able to schedule and plan the rollout of your content. That saves you a ton of time in your day-to-day activities. Taking a few hours a week to fully plan your future content keeps you from stopping multiple times a day to post.
If you’re using social media, did you remember to add icons to your website? If you haven’t, how do you expect more people to find you? If people like your content and want more, you want to make sure that they can easily find ways to engage with you. Keep in mind also that it’s easy to tag a person on a social media site than it is to share a whole website. Not adding your social media icons can lower your viewership simply because of inconvenience.
Overall, using social media increases your engagement, which can help you sharpen your brand faster and lead to more sales and a larger audience. More than anything, it takes a little time to figure out which platform works best for you. A Long Island digital marketing company can help you come up with the right content, which will help you attract your ideal audience.
The Wantagh area was inhabited by the Merokee (or Merikoke) tribe of the Metoac Indians prior to the first wave of European settlement in the mid-17th century. The Merokee were part of the greater Montauk tribe that loosely ruled Long Island’s Native Americans. Wantagh was the sachem (chief) of the Merokee tribe in 1647, and was later the grand sachem of the Montauk tribe from 1651 to 1658. The Dutch settlers came east from their New Amsterdam colony, and English settlers came south from Connecticut and Massachusetts settlements. When the English and Dutch settled their competing claims to Long Island in the 1650 treaty conducted in Hartford, the Dutch partition included all lands west of Oyster Bay and thus the Wantagh area. Long Island then was ceded to the Duke of York in 1663-64, but then fell back into Dutch hands after the Dutch regained New York in 1673. The Treaty of Westminster in 1674 settled the land claims once and for all, incorporating Long Island into the now-British colony of New York.
Early settler accounts refer to Wantagh as “Jerusalem”, although earlier accounts refer to the area as “Wantagh”. The creek running north-south through Wantagh, and which has been covered up in many places but is still visible between the Wantagh Parkway and the housing developments west of Wantagh Avenue, was originally the Jerusalem River. The original post office was built in 1837, for Jerusalem, but mail service from Brooklyn began around 1780. The town’s first school was established in 1790. At some time around the 1880s, Jerusalem was renamed Ridgewood, and the town’s original LIRR station was named “Ridgewood Station”. Later, Ridgewood was renamed Wantagh to avoid confusion with another town in New York State with the same name.Wantagh, NY
George Washington rode through Jerusalem on April 21, 1790, as part of his 5-day tour of Long Island. The Daughters of the American Revolution have placed a plaque on Hempstead Turnpike to commemorate Washington’s travels, which took him from Hempstead on Jerusalem Road (now North Jerusalem Road) to Jerusalem, on to Merrick Road. He then went on to head east, then circle back west on the north shore. During the Revolutionary War, British ships traveled up Jones inlet and came ashore to raid Jerusalem farms.Learn more about Wantagh.
