    Through social media also you can bring traffic to your site. For example if you wish to promote your business through twitter.. You can post tweets by analyzing the trending keywords and choosing the appropriate keywords and share things about your products along with the hashtag. It has chances to reach many people.

    Hello,

    Social media is very important in business. It will help you promote your business. But of course you will need to be active on posting and updating your customer through these platform. If not it will never be effective. What we are doing is a post per day that can get everyone attention. I hope that helps.

    Sincerly,

    Social media is an effective way for business promotion. With the help of social media you can easily engage with your new and existing clients. While using social media only your account and page creation doesn't promote your business, but for successful business some points play an important role such as you can share your business products, products offer, the benefits of your products, keep regular touch to your new and existing clients.

But for that, you have to make some homework in adopting these advertising campaigns

    It's worth to remember that in order for your social media ads to be successful, they need to be optimized properly. You should know your audience very well in order to target your ads for the best performance.

    Influencer marketing has been working very well for my clients, once I allow enough time to find the most relevant Influencers in the niche. I then craft the message, contact Influencers and negotiate the best deals for the sponsored posts. This kind of posts can bring plenty of traffic and new followers.

    People nowadays are using social media platform as an online marketing to promote their business. Let me just take this example of online shop for girls clothing, the owner will just use facebook, instagram to post their clothes picture and share to get more visits more views. Hence, exposure to public will increase which will increase to his/her business brand getting well-known.

    Helpful is one thing, annoying is the other. As some may misuse the purpose of social media platform to spam to think that they will get their business growing

    Most professionals recommend not "spamming" feeds with advertisements because, as you say, they are annoying. It is recommended that sharing information with your followers is a much better way to get people to remember your name, because they will remember how helpful you were on social media and are more likely to use your service and/or recommend it to others.

    Well said sir, but still people tend to overlook on this misuse part. They need to position themselves on the other users view as well or else the media platform will be stamped as a bad impression to them only

    Yes, Social Media is definitely a good place to acquire more leads for your business. But of course, before you start making use of different social media platforms make sure you have a website that you can redirect to.

    From where I work, what we normally do in our SMM is that we share the content we publish in our on-page blogs. Sometimes we promote these posts depending on the topic and our current business objectives.

    Social Media is also a good place to reach out to your target market and build relationships. This can strengthen people's trust on your company and can help you greatly in acquiring more potential clients.

    Also, keep in mind that people visiting these social media sites are not prepared to be offered different products or services. So if you do pursue SMM, try your best to speak your target market's language and avoid being a hard sell.

    I hope this helps you somehow.

    Best of luck!

    Because new customers rarely come directly from social media posts, SMM is harder to quantify than other, more direct methods that are actually designed specifically to advertise a product or service. For example, someone may start seeing a bakery mentioned in a variety of posts from their followers, or may even ask for recommendations for an upcoming occasion. If they then go directly to the bakery's website, it shows up as a "direct" visitor. not from the social media site. This customer may then recommend the bakery to some of their friends and/or neighbors, who can then recommend the bakery to theirs, and so on. Yes, this is mostly word of mouth, but it began with a social media account.

    If you really want to generate leads through social media then opt for facebook advertisement as it is the best way to generate leads. I have tried it myself but you need to be careful while targeting the audience as it would be impossible to generate lead without proper targeting.
