Significant advantages for some business
Social media marketing in Sri Lanka is a growing trend and there could be significant advantages for the early movers who take advantage of this. Although there are online advertising options like Google Adwords, Yahoo Ads etc very few companies are seem to be taking advantage from this. One reason could be the relative lack of internet users and even from that users only a very few purchase anything online. Having said that number of users in social networking sites like Facebook are growing rapidly in Sri Lanka and this presents you with a great chance to improve your brand name and of course to improve your sales. When it comes to social media marketing the only worthwhile option up to now is Facebook advertising which is relatively easy to use and a good return of investment considering the prize.
Facebook Advertising in Sri Lanka
Facebook advertising in Sri Lanka became really popular during the general election period where politicians fought among each other to promote themselves on the Internet. The anonymity offered by the Internet offered the chance to everyone to express there opinion freely and thus these pages became very active. And as usual after the elections the politicians and these pages are nowhere to be found. But some companies have taken advantage of Facebook advertising to enhance there brand image and sales. If your business is mostly targeted towards the young cr0wd then Facebook is a great place to advertise. The advertisers seem to be aware of this trend because most advertisements are targeted towards them. Some of the frequently appearing ads are for doing foreign degrees, various sorts of food promotions from famous companies such as GoNuts and various latest tech gadgets like mobile phones and laptops. As you can see these are mostly things young people would be interest in and another thing of note is that these are somewhat luxurious items as well. If you have an Internet connection it usually is a sign that you have a considerable income level which is another factor you should consider when doing Facebook advertising. However you should be aware of the rules regarding running Facebook campaigns because some companies already had there pages removed for violating the TOS. If you are interested in learning more I highly recommend the Facebook Guide by Jonathan Volk who is considered a super affiliate that has reported affiliate commissions more than 100,000$ just from Facebook advertising. Check out the Facebook advertising Guide.
Using Twitter to promote your business
Although not as popular as Facebook, Twitter is another social network site that you can use to promote your business. I haven’t seeing only few companies actively using Twitter to promote Sri Lankan businesses which in understandable considering the relatively low number of users. But still this is a free service and you should look at all possible ways to promote your business. An added bonus is sometimes twitter profiles and tweets show up on the first page of search engines for some keywords which could be a great way for some extra exposure. If nothing else just create a twitter account for free and do tweet some messages about your company making sure to add the necessary keywords. There are few websites that are trying to use Twitter to promote there websites, a good example being this website about Sri Lankan Weddings. Most businesses struggle in Twitter to build a follower base and if you are having such a problem then you can use a Twitter follower software to get followers.
Using LinkedIn to promote your business and the power of LinkedIn connections
LinkedIn is another very underestimated s0cial network that can have significant impact on your career and business. Unlike most other social networks this is a network of professional where CEOs, Managers and Directors hang out. LinkedIn members are usually people who are actively looking to enhance there careers and to build connections that will help in there businesses.A network like Facebook if more for sharing fun events and to keep in touch with friends. When it comes to social media marketing in Sri Lanka LinkedIn can be considered as the least used social network. The reason could be the high price of LinkedIn advertising or the relative low Sri Lankan user base. Whether you are looking to Search Engine optimization in Sri Lanka, Web Design in Sri Lanka or simply looking for business contacts then LinkedIn is the place to be.
Social Media Marketing in Sri Lanka Jobs
With the growth of social media there is a growth in demand for people who are skilled in social media. This could be a simple task like managing a Twitter account to somewhat advanced task like managing a Facebook advertising campaign. If you are interested in getting a job related to social media or interested in hiring someone for your social media work I highly recommend you visit social media job seekers.
Get in while its still new
As I mentioned before social media marketing in Sri Lanka is still relatively new and you can easily get the early adopters advantage in many niches. Like most other things social media takes time to understand and master and sooner you start sooner you will know how to do it properly.

** Twit Sniper is now called Social Snipe and sold as a clickbank product, and they have a seven day trial so you can test it before making a serious investment.
I have being invited to test out Twit Sniper and this Twit Sniper review is based on testing out the service for two days.In my previous post about Twit Sniper review I mentioned one definite improvement will be you don’t need to have your own hosting but since it took a while to release Twit Sniper I was hoping to get some cool new features and I wasn’t disappointed. There are plenty of new tools for you to try out and improve and fine tune your Twitter marketing strategies and to grow your twitter followers.And best of all it comes at a affordable and a reasonable prize. Twit Sniper is one of the best tools out there that you can use to find targeted Twitter followers at a reasonable prize. I will list down the feature available in the system so you have an idea of what to expect before you buy Twit Sniper , alternatively you can check out the videos explaining the process.
Automatically follow users based on Keyword
Finding targeted followers makes it easy to interact with them and it makes it easier for them to connect with you as well. The best way to find targeted followers is to search for them using key words and Twit Sniper does it for you. You have some control over the auto follow process as well , you can specify the interval between requests , how much back in time you want to search the Twitter time line etc. This time based sniping method is very important so you want get your account banned by sending too many requests at once.You can target multiple key words at once as well so you don’t have to run the process for every key word your want to target.You can add a simple keyword or you can add an advanced keyword witch has a lot more settings you can tweak to find tune your Twitter followers.
Advanced Keyword Adding ( new with Twit Sniper )
It is said that a picture is worth thousand words so I think you can understand it better by looking at the picture. Click on it to view it in full size. As you can see there are lots of ways to find tune the exact Twitter phrase you are looking for. You can check for multiple keywords in one tweet , you can search for hash tags , you can limit it be checking specific user names , you can even check for tweets before a certain date etc. All this features makes it very easier to fine tune your automated process of getting Twitter followers. From my experience getting Twitter followers is relatively easy , the tough part is getting them to stay , so if you are fine tuning your Twitter campaign make sure you have some relevant content in your Twitter feed to keep them interested.
Hosted on there own servers ( new with Twit Sniper )
This was supposed to make it more secure but this was a reason why many users kept away from Twitter Snipe as well. That problem is solved now by them providing secure servers to host your account. You just need to create an account and you are ready to go.
Support for Multiple Accounts
You can as add many Twitter accounts as you want , this is a good way to build your niche Twitter accounts without spending too much time on them. If you manage to tap into the right niche these Twitter accounts with relatively small number of followers can be very profitable.
Schedule Tweets ( new with Twit Sniper )
This is a great feature of Twit Sniper and now you can schedule multiple tweets for multiple accounts. This is a great way to test out different message formats , different reactions according to the time zone settings or if you just want to post some message with different formats regularly so it will be visible in the Twitter search. As most good things be careful about using this , if you use this to spam twitter time line with same freaking message multiple times you are more likely to get banned , use this wisely and sensibly and you have a more than average chance of making profits.
Mass Direct Message ( new with Twit Sniper )
This is like having your very own e-mail list with the difference being you have to make your message 140 characters or less. You can even specify how many followers you need to send this message. Just type your message and press the “Perform Mass Direct Message” button. As with scheduled tweets this is a powerful feature that you should use with care. Remember “With Great Power comes Great Responsibility” 😉 .
Help and video Tutorials with access to Forums
Last time I checked there were no help or video tutorials. Most things are pretty much self explanatory and you have small question marks everywhere describing what it does. So I doubt anyone will have trouble getting this to work. There is a forum where you can request new features and report bugs. I reported a possible enhancement for scheduled tweets and it was there next day , now that’s the kind of service I’m looking for. The developers of Twitter Snipe is known for there quality products like floating sign up form for WordPress etc so I’m pretty sure the product quality will keep increasing.
These days hardly any product comes out without bonuses and Twit Sniper is no exception. There are five listed down in the bonuses section but “Eye catching avatars” doesn’t seem to work for me.
- Twitter traffic exposed
- Twitter Banking report
- Twitter back grounds ( I found this very good addition )
- Eye catching Avatars
- Twitter viral script
These are some nice bonuses to find and attract more followers. Use the viral twitter and give out something nice for tweeting. You will be amazed at how many tweets and followers you can get through this method.
Create a Twit Sniper Account
As you can see this is a great service to build a targeted Twitter following and there are lots of features there that will help you make money with Twitter. Other than some layout issues I really couldn’t find anything wrong with it and the functions works as expected. So go create a Twit Sniper account now.
P.S – If you have any doubts or questions about the service feel free to ask them in the comments section , I will answer them to the best of my ability. Also you can check out other ways to increase your twitter following.
