    Social Media works very well in a niche if you are engaging with people who don't have a lot of friends. It's not worth bothering with Linkedin.

    As from my experience, Best SMM for B2B could be LinkedIn. Also Facebook could help you a lot. But I would never bet on twitter

    The increasing popularity of social channels has directly attributed to information abundance. Through social networks, buyers have been able to research and learn about products and services through influencers and peers. Additionally, a profound shift has taken place within social media channels. Although social is still important for branding and generating buzz, lead generation is becoming more and more important. By tapping into all the social media channels, from Facebook and Twitter to LinkedIn and Google+, you can be where your customers are and create that trust.

    Tip # 1: Never discount the marketing power of Google+.

    Tip # 2: Make use of multiple social media channels instead of focusing in one. Variety is good so Facebook AND Twitter are definitely workable.

    Tip # 3: Attack each channel differently. It's best to gather extensive information as to what work best for which platform. This resource is a great place to start. sproutsocial.com/insights/social-media-lead-generation/

Also, it is best known for providing one with the best possible ways to get interacted with the target customers directly and in the best possible way out for oneself.

    It is very helpful to my business. You just have to know how to use it to your advantage. Most of my customers are generated online and my existing customers share the word about my business online too.

    It depends on the niche you are going after, like say for instance you want to target people in the gaming niche, then Youtube would be your best bet as there are a lot of gamers hanging around on Youtube. The only difference is that you will need to shell out money as you will be using Youtube's ad platform to grab attention. Social media helps in a way your brand gets noticed by people so as to increase your reach.

    It depends on who your targets are. Before choosing what platform you're going to use, much better to identify your target audience and their behavior. Say for example if you are doing social media marketing for a B2B business, Linkedin might be a good choice. If you are going to leverage on influencers, Twitter would be of big help.

    Another thing, you can identify first your target buyer persona or profile. That way, you will have a clear guide on whatever approach you're going to make.

    If you don't have any idea on how to come up with buyer persona, you can see this guide.

    now almost every business, small, medium, big, all of them have their business pages on different SNS like facebook or twitter or instagram. If promotion through SNS wouldn't work, do you think they'd spend money on it? I don't actually think so furthermore now everything is abut how well educated are you in social media communication? SNS became a real source for finding your potential customers

    I think social media can be a great asset for a business, but only if it is properly maintained. If you dont post regularly and take care to answer customers when they write to you (even if its with complaints) etc. it can actually do more harm than good. Social media needs constant dedicated attention: it can reap great rewards, but very easily also show your company to be out-of-touch.
