With more than 100 million people using Linkedin, it is a great opportunity using social media to market your business without spending a dime. Use Facebook to get some very low cost marketing opportunities. Make a professional business account or create a business fan page.

  2. 2. Tools such as Tweepi and Twellow are integral for social media http://blog.hootsuite.com/facebook-marketin g-tips/ marketing. These tools will let you find people that are in your target audience to identify the users that are the most influential. You can subscribe to the users you find, and they may subscribe to you in return. You can have your LinkedIn updates include what you post on Twitter by adding the Twitter application to your profile. Even if Twitter posts are generally shorter than LinkedIn updates, you will be able to reach out to a larger number of people and encourage your LinkedIn friends to find you on Twitter. Use the Facebook poll feature. This tool allows you to create a poll with as many different answers as you want for your friends to complete. This could be a great opportunity to get some feedback on your products and encourage your friends to interact with you and with each other. You should put your email and social media marketing together. Add in links to your Twitter and Facebook when you send out emails to try and market to people as much as possible. You can also encourage others to sign up for your newsletter by adding a link to it on your registration page. Connect your social media accounts to each other and attempt to secure the same name for all of them. By doing this, you will develop a greater presence on the internet as people search for you. Connecting the accounts allows people that have discovered you in one place to quickly connect to your business through other forms of social media. Try to obtain a Twitter handle that is very close to your business name or brand name. Avoid handles like Jane7592 because nobody will remember you.. You want your name, and your brand, to be remembered so that consumers will look for it when they are shopping online or at the store. Communicate with your customers directly on social media sites as a person representing the company. No customer wants to have a conversation with a large establishment, but rather an individual. Customers are far more likely to trust your company if they know that a single person is addressing their concerns. The best social media messages are often short and snappy. Concise messages have a few advantages. They don't irk the reader by providing unnecessary details, they are easier for the

Run fun and interesting polls on your Facebook page. This is a great way to engage your audience and involve potential consumers. Facebook has an easy to use feature that can help you with creating polls, so take advantage of it. Polls don't have to be about information directly related to your business. They can be fun, interesting, and involve current events. The point of the poll is to keep consumers interested. Use your business name as an account name on social media sites like Twitter or Facebook. Claim these right away to ensure that another person does not take the name and begin posting or tweeting things that are unrelated to or inappropriate for your business. By creating an account, you will secure your name until you are ready to start using social media. As the number of followers on your site increases, you should make a point to have it highlighted on your blog. You want your readers to see how many followers you have on Twitter or Facebook. If they are not a follower yet, this may get them to want to be like your other readers and follow you too. It is extremely important that your site is updated and posted to frequently. You don't want customers to grow bored. Keep them entertained and interested. You should make a schedule of times to post or you can sign up with a site that will post on your behalf using a schedule set by you. This can help you remain visible to your readers. Take advantage of the holiday season to post content related to these new challenges. Depending on the kind of product you are selling, you could post recipes, advice on shopping or tips on familial relationships. People will be more likely to read this type of content simply because it mentions the upcoming holidays. With the information you just learned you should have a better idea about how you can become successful with social media marketing and with how to reach your goals. Remember that you have to continuously learn more information and apply it as much as possible to gain true success.
