How to Use Social Media to Increase Website Traffic

If you're into digital marketing, this isn't the first (or last) time you've heard how important social media is for your business. So, rather than boring you, we'll cut to the chase and tell you about the things you can do to increase your website traffic using social media. To keep things simple and easy to understand, we've divided the article into ten points. So, let's get started!

Optimizing Your Social Profiles

Social media optimization is just as important as search engine optimization (SEO). Many marketers fail Because they do not take social media marketing seriously. Optimizing your social media profile entails optimizing all aspects of your profile, not just your posts.

1. Profile Picture

Your cover image and profile picture tell your audience what your page is about and set the tone for your page.

If you are a company, your profile picture should be your logo.

Using a consistent profile picture across all platforms improves authenticity and reduces confusion.

2. Page Bio

Setting up an on-point, crystal clear page bio is critical. Your bio should focus on your brand and services.

A page bio should not be more than three lines long. To distinguish one point from another, use bullet points or symbols.

Incorporate a call to action into the bio.

Include a link to your website in your bio.

Include Visual Content In Your Post

Including visual content in your posts is an excellent way to increase reach and engagement.

When scrolling through your feed on any social media platform, content with colourful media draws your attention more than text-only content.

Tweets with images are 35% more likely to be retweeted.

Images in Facebook posts have a 37% higher engagement rate.

Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok are all image or video-based social media platforms.

Visual content marketing is extremely important in social media for increasing engagement and clickthrough rates.

Insert Share Buttons Into Your Blog

Have you ever read a blog post that you absolutely adored and wished you could share with your co-workers but couldn't? I understand how you feel. Consider this from the standpoint of a marketer. How bad is it if someone wants to share your content on their social media profile but is unable to do so because your page lacks an easy-to-share option? Let's be honest. Few people will copy the link from the link tab and paste it into their Facebook wall.

Including click-to-share buttons for all major social platforms simplifies sharing! The more people who share the links on their social media accounts, the more visitors you'll get to your website!

You must be in the right place at the right time

Everything revolves around timing. When it comes to social media, timing is just as important as content. Marketers now have access to information about when their target audience is most active. Top social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram offer page analytics, which tell us which days and times your audience is most active. This data allows us to post our content in that specific window to maximise engagement, shares, and web traffic.

Add Links In Posts

Including links in posts is one of the most effective ways to drive traffic to your website. If you're posting about an event on social media, include an appealing image or a creative video, as well as a link to register for the event. Don't include your website's homepage link in every post; people will quickly ignore it.

Include a link that is related to the content you posted.

If you've published a new blog post, share the link with a compelling caption across your social media profiles.

Captions on most social media platforms allow you to include clickable links.

Instagram only allows you to include a link in your story if you have over 10,000 followers and a business account.

Use other platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and WhatsApp, to include links in captions and comments.

Include a Call To Action

Have you ever paid attention to the last line of a bio or the end of a caption? They usually conclude with a call to action. A call to action is simply asking people to take the action we want them to take. These sentences have an impact and compel people to act.

Here are some simple examples of calls to action:

"Like it, comment on it, and share it with your friends."

"To learn more, click on the link below."

"Click here to get the free Complete SEO E-book."

Promote Across All Platforms

It is essential to promote new content on your website to your target audience whenever you add new content. If you want people to care about your new work, you must demonstrate that you care as well. If possible, create unique posts for each platform, or at the very least create one and promote it across all platforms.

Influencer marketing

Influencers are important in marketing. Many marketers approach niche influencers to promote their product, service, or social media account. Influencer marketing is becoming popular because people believe that if an influencer recommends something, it will be good. This is exactly what we need to capitalise on. They can help you promote your page/website/services.

This immediately builds trust and authority.

When you're new to social media, it can be difficult to establish trust and authority.

When an influencer in your niche shares your website in a post, story, or tweet, it immediately draws the attention of your target audience and directs them to your website.

Engage with your audience

Many marketers spend as much time as they can thinking about marketing strategies and technical, creative ways to increase their following. Nothing is wrong with it. But if you're only concerned with this, I have some bad news for you. Engaging your audience is the ultimate key to retaining customers. Customers will never feel close to you if you do not engage with them on a personal level.

Take the time to respond to every comment and direct message.

Don't claim that you don't have the time. There is always time. Make it a priority. This should be your number one priority.

Do the same if you want people to engage with your content so badly. Demonstrate your concern.

Your community grows when people realise you are reading and responding to everyone's messages.

People respect you and your work.

The main goal of your social media profile is to connect with your audience and build a relationship with them.

Concentrate on that, and people will naturally begin to visit your website.


In this day and age, social media is a valuable marketing tool. Make the most of it. Remember, as we always say, that your business is about your customers, not about you. Put your customers and their benefits first, and continue to provide excellent value. Follow these ten tips to boost your website traffic through social media.
