Using Social Media to Boost Website Traffic

Home » Blogs

In a world where the internet is the ultimate playground, social media has emerged as the reigning superstar, and it’s not just for sharing cat videos anymore! Businesses have hopped onto the social media rollercoaster, using it as a resource to bring people to their websites and digital engagement. If the goal of your social media is to drive traffic to your website, start with content, consistency, and a call to action!

Let’s Start with Content

The content you are posting on social media should be a reflection of your website. It should make your audience want more! Fill your feed with attention-grabbing blog posts, snazzy infographics, videos, and quirky images. This eye-catching content content will receive the “double-tap” and ultimately will drive website traffic to learn more.

Tip: Think about where your audience hangs out the most. If most of your engagement is coming from Instagram, then tailor your strategy to that platform and audience. The best posts for Instagram are short captions with a few hashtags and eye-catching graphics.


Hashtags are a powerful way to increase the discoverability of your content on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. Research and use relevant hashtags that are popular within your industry or niche. Be careful and don’t overload your posts with too many hashtags, as it can come off as spammy. Stick to a few well-chosen hashtags that can help expand the reach of your post and attract users who are interested in the topics you cover.

Incorporate a Call-to-Action (CTA)

A well-placed call-to-action can direct your social media audience to your website with a clear purpose. Whether it’s encouraging them to read a related blog post, explore your product offerings, or sign up for a newsletter, a strong CTA guides users towards taking the desired action. Make sure your CTAs are compelling, concise, and aligned with the content you’re promoting.

Consistency is Key

Regularly posting fresh and engaging content keeps your audience interested and informed. It’s not just about posting though; engagement is equally important! Responding to comments, messages, and participating in discussions humanizes your brand. What does that have to do with website traffic? Well, when people feel valued and heard, they are more likely to explore your website for more information and see what your company is all about.

Social Media Contests

Contests are another excellent way to generate engagement on social media that encourages users to visit your website. Whether they need to visit your website to enter the contest, learn more about you, or use a gift card you gave to a winner, contests drive tons of website traffic. Check out our blog about social media contests when you are ready to start your first one!

The power of social media to drive website hits requires a strategic approach. By creating engaging content, targeting the right platforms, maintaining consistency, and incorporating visual elements, you can captivate your audience and entice them to explore your website.
