    How to grow social profiles from scratch?


    Hey everyone -

    I'm reviving a website that I've worked on-and-off on since 2008. I pretty stopped from 2011 till a
    month ago. I'm aiming to make it a full-time endeavor.

    What's the most efficient way to grow my social media profiles? For now, I'm limiting myself
    to Facebook and Twitter. FYI, I personally don't care for social much. But, I recognize how it
    helps you grow your audience and boost your SEO.

    Things I've thought:

    1) Should I wait until I've built up more organic traffic on the website and then send people to my
    social profiles?
    2) Or, should I start posting and growing organically that way right from the start? (Seems like
    more work, and I don't have the time at this moment).

    FYI...I'm guest posting and using a landing page to grow my list as my primary growth tactic
    at this point.

    Anyway, curious on your thoughts on that.

    Social Media is not for getting ranking on Google, rather it is to increase the trust among prospective audience. You can start it as soon as your website goes live, this will help increase reliability of your brand.

    Again! you organically update some fresh content( which visitors are likely to find impressive) and share via social sites.

    This way you can gain traffic as well as trust.

    Hey danstelter,
    You should not wait until your traffic grows on your website you should start doing the social media promotion simultaneously.
    Waiting won't help you what you need is a proper plan you could just google out that.
    The most important thing is if you have a content worth sharing then just go to social media and do it.
    plus you could use tools like buzz stream and meet edger they will help you a lot.
    Do fell free to contact me if you have any other queries.
    Regards
