    Take a look at some big name corporations out there with large numbers of followers and see what kinds of posts they're making and what kind of interaction their posts get. Having a high follower count doesn't matter if people aren't engaging in the discussions. Evaluate posts from companies with no engagement from followers to see what doesn't work and also take a look at posts from companies getting tons of likes and comments on posts for ideas on what does work.

    Here's an article about some of the best social media campaigns ever, take some of their know-how and apply it to your business. http://au.smallbusiness.yahoo.com/p...-7-best-social-media-campaigns-ever/14805273/

    In general, you must always post interesting contents. However, there are some things that you need to consider like targeting your audience, what topic you want to post, etc. And remember don't post more than one. That will surely become spamming.

    The main thing is that your posts should offer something of value to your followers, whether it's a link to an article or just a brief fact about something. Give people a reason to "listen" to you online. The result will be that they will trust you more and will be more likely to do business with you.

    You just need to make yours unique and ensure that you're being professional. Spam to me includes any ads or sites that look generic or similar to other spam sites. Unprofessional ads stand out as spam to me too.

    The basic entry, you must like to social with people. E.g answer user question, collect their feedback. I seem lot of social media manager post lot of useless thing, the correct way is post and track. E.g. put a bit.ly link to analysis the user response. Once identify the potential content, put all eggs to one bucket.....let the topic grow.

    One should write fresh content. Do not copy & paste it from other web site. And do not make bulk submission. Post only on those topics in which you have mastery.

    This advice was kind of offered above, but try to develop relationships with other/larger social media competitors. Offer to post a great offer on their site, and slowly build your customer base up. Keep your posts engaging but asking questions and offering your fans an opportunity to get involved in discussions on your site.

    How can you do the "bit.ly link" and get tracked?

    That makes a lot of sense. I will definitely follow that. Thank you :)

    What do you mean? Like posting my info on other page? Is that acceptable? Aren't they going to block me?

    To get Social Media Referral Traffic Post quality Content on Social Channels. You can use external link like News, Offers, Best Tool s/w of the year etc. also but for the time being. lets engaged user first with your channels. don't try to post website links day by day on social channels.

    bit.ly is a process to redirect short url to original long url. When you create an article or images to share in social media or any print paper, the url would be some like
    Code:
    e.g http://www.example.com/abc123xyz
    , with conversion to shorten url it become
    Code:
    http://bit.ly/XyZ
    . Whenever readers click the short link, it will redirect, track the ip, traffic source.

    Being a professional is not really necessary. It will still depend on what field you belong to. For example, if you are in a business, it's a must that you have to act professional for you will be ignored if you don't. But in general, you just have to make something that will catch the attention of other users. Something that will make them surprised. All interesting stuffs are entertained by many social media patrons whether you are a professional or not.

    Again, it will still depend on your target audience. There are topics that are naturally boring in spite of you making it interesting. One of the best keys is interesting stuffs.

    Social media optimization is all about exposing your website on social media channels like Facebook twitter linkedin; it helps you in building good social media reputation with more traffic, which is considered by Google while ranking your website in search results.

    to get the good traffic for your social media sites use the humor and interesting content for your site. allow the people to interact to your site. dont post business related post all times. take some hot topic and start the interaction with the people. let allow the people to comment on your status and give proper reply all time.

    How can i shorten the links? Do you use website? or software to do that? or tools rather?

    - - - - Posts Merged - - - -

    I agree with you. but posting "Interesting stuff" is the hardest part. We never know what topic will give interest to others. Sometimes when I think that one topic gives interest on me, I don't know if it goes the same way with others. How can you post an interesting stuff in general? Things like will never be ignored. Can you give us an example?
