    It seems that recently social networking sites have become extremely important for anyone wanting to do promotion. Any website or business owners on this forum, are you currently using social networks to do promotion, and if so what strategies and techniques are you using?

    Thanks,
    Jay.

    It is vital for your marketing strategy if you can make sure it will have enough people on the other site to get you massage. In other case it won't work.

    Social media platforms have become a good spot for promotion not because it is meant to be that way. It is because they have become a big part of people's lives. And businesses are just taking advantage of it. I am too is engaged through social media promotions to add more exposure for my clients websites.

    When people are spending most of their time online and mostly on social networking websites it is no wonder that businesses are also doing promotion via these mediums. To make sure your message reaches your audience you have to go where they are and where the likelihood of your promotional message being received are high. And hence social media has become important for businesses these days.

    Currently, I'm on a number of social networks of different nature (networking, news and Q&A) and the amount of time I spend on each of them is based on the amount and the quality of traffic that each of them is sending to my website / landing page.

    Primarily, I use social networks to reach out to influencers of the particular group or community that I am part of, get them to know me and the website that I am building. Building such relationships has been very useful. Most of them don't result in instant rewards or returns but many of them has brought along relationships that carries a wide variety of opportunities to help grow my websites. Some of them include guest blogging opportunities on bigger blogs, being featured on interviews, sources for useful content and many more.

    Different social networks may require different tactics but my fundamental goal is really to build as many relationships as possible and trying to help out the community as much as I can.

    Hi Jay!

    As the wise man always says, "why stick to one source of traffic (referring to Google) when you can have many (referring to all other ways)?" Sure enough, ranking on Google is a good way to keep an online business surviving. But what happens when Google dumps your site from the ranks? That's exactly when social media sites and others are helpful. It is highly advised to diversify traffic these days, so when Google turns you down, you'll only be slightly affected by that misfortune. So, am I using social networking sites for promotion? A big yes for that.

    I've seen Facebook being used for customer support, which is really good promotion. People generally don't like waiting on the phone, or for an email, so being able to talk to someone fast on Facebook is a good selling point.

    The great thing about social networking is that is really generates interest in your business. The sites enable you to provide regular updates about your business that target vast numbers of people at once; this gives you a massive advantage over other similar businesses who are not taking this action.

    Social media acts as a platform which allows the organization to improve communication and productivity by disseminating information among the people in a more efficient manner.But there is lot more things you may also keep into consideration, try not to be a show off and don't turn off potentials by stating unwanted statements about where you stand on personal basis unless that's your business model.

    If you gain recommendations on sites such as LinkedIn, this influences people’s initial impressions of you as a person. Perspective clients will take all this information into account when deciding whether or not you’re a person that they’d like to do business with.
