Why read about social media icons?

Social media is a powerful force on the web today.

For example, Facebook and Twitter have become one of the first places consumers go to ask businesses support-related questions.

Walmart uses Facebook for customer service.

How they answer customers’ questions on Facebook will have a positive impression on any prospect.

These brands know the importance of social media marketing.

Before prospects and customers can start engaging and mentioning your brand on social media, they need to know that your business exists there.

How do you make them aware of your company’s presence on social media?

Icons.

It’s surprising that digital marketers rarely talk about social media icons. Social media users follow you when they see the icons on your site.

When potential customers visit your site, and they see the icon of their favorite social platform, they’ll be happy to follow you.

So, how do you begin using social media icons on your site to make people follow your brand on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram?

Your website is a golden place you should be asking people to follow your company on social.

You’re missing out on a big opportunity to build your social following if you’re not getting visitors to become fans on social media.

With a tool like GrowthFunnel, you can collect visitors’ emails when they land on your site.

On their subsequent visits, you can ask them to follow you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even Pinterest. There’s no limit to what you can do with GrowthFunnel. Sign up for free here.

Offer visitors something in return for becoming a fan on social media platforms.

That’s not all.

Don’t put any random social media icon and expect people to follow you. They won’t.

The icon you use to ask visitors to become your fans is important too. It could contribute positively or negatively to your following numbers.

There are amazing resources out there that offer attractive icons that capture visitors’ attention.

This article provides you with these resources.
