    The chat idea is good.
    but i don't think that the people who are using social media site will pay attention on your message of selling goods or services.

    You are abs right. This is the tough work to convert people through social media into your service user. And if we do more activities over social media, then our account gets blocked. So, I think its better to chat one-to-one, and do friendship and then appose about the services.

    You can generate leads through all the major social networking sites most use Twitter and LinkedIn is very effective for B2B. This will help you to attract more customers, building relationships and driving traffic.

    Social media is best way to get daily traffic for webpages or websites. Social posts with popular hashtags are trending now.

    That is totally incorrect. Social Media (with or without hashtags) is almost completely ineffective for getting traffic to a website

    I think it all depends on what you are using Social Media for.

    I'm always amazed by the solid content strategies of companies such as Shopify. Rarely have i been as delighted to receive email from a company. All of the things they post are genuinely beneficial to me regardless of which e-commerce provider i work with.

    Needless to say, i used Shopify :)

    For communications, a dedicated team is necessary but it certainly helps in the process of building a 'brand'. For the more KPI minded marketers, influencer marketing via fb and instagram is still a really good value use of marketing spend.

    Share buttons should enable website-goers to seamlessly share or recommend a product.

    Social media does work for business. Just many businesses fail at social media.

    Every social media platform should be approached separately and your adverts need to be different for each one. What you say on Linkedin should have a different approach to conversation Twitter for example.

    And also be sure to choose the RIGHT social media platform for your business. Accountants would see more success using Linkedin, Twitter but someone selling to teenagers might be better on instagram or snapchat.

    All this without even knowing what the person's business is? How can you accurately recommend a platform without knowing what the business is? For example Pinterest is 70% female and best used when targeting females - if this person is selling mens underwear IMO pinterest would be a waste of all our time.

    According to some experts, SMM for business boosts your site’s SEO . It is also considered as a great tool for brand promotion and one of the best strategies to connect with your consumers to help you achieve your desired sales / revenue. If you are doing it right, it will lead to real relationship building.

    For others that don't have much idea about social media promotion, they buy a marketing package or hire someone to manage this specific area of their business. I think it is an advantage if you don't have time to commit with this tool and that your marketing ideas are not enough to meet your goals. However, in some cases, it can also be a bad idea to purchase a social media package. So you have to be careful and consider some factors before handing over this responsibilities to others (external). But whether you do it on your own or not, being active in social media will definitely increase your traffic. Just make sure to maximize all the means of promotion such as Facebook and Instagram ads. Twitter and G+ will definitely help as well. You can also join Facebook groups to post any of your promotions...just make sure to join ONLY those groups that have relevance to your business. Otherwise, they will block you if you consistently post irrelevant sales and promotions.

    Social Media will helps in branding promotion. We can use social media platforms for the promotion and lead as well. SMM is the paid marketing, here we can target the exact client of the business (by age, by location etc.). Use these strategies and generate the leads.

    Marcus, as you said it is B2B, then Twitter and LinkedIn will be the most appropriate one, as in LinkedIn more professionalism can be seen and if definitely create great effect on clients. By these sites, targeted audience can easily be approached.
