    Hi all,
    I have been running a social media campaign for the past three or four weeks. I am curious as to what everyone out there is doing. We have FB ads and pages linked to our Twitter account, but I am still looking for the combination of things that will really jump start the campaign that will allow me to engage several hundred people.

    Thanks for the advice. You can check us out at http://www.caycon.com and on our FB page.

    First, you need to have a user-friendly URL so that your fans will easily remember your Fan page link.
    Here's a related thread here in BAF regarding this: How can I get a user-friendly URL for a FaceBook fan page?

    Then, you need to promote your fan page on various fan pages related to your topic. Please don't spam it. :) Yo can also invite your friends to join your fan page.

    The first step to using social media effectively is sharing your content. Begin by taking an inventory of the type of content your company produces. It is important to be as efficient as possible in repurposing content. The idea is to promote the articles, videos and photos that you currently produce, instead of creating new content specifically for your social media presence.

    Social media tips can be used by beginners very profitably and you can start your business with a company presence or profile on different, but suitable, social networking sites. There has been and will be a huge swing towards blogs and other free distribution platforms

    1.Be careful with personal information. This may seem
    odd, since many sites are created to help promote sharing
    of personal information. Still, astute criminals can piece
    together information you provide on diff erent sites and
    then use it to impersonate you or someone you know – or
    even re-set your passwords. Similarly, “tweeting” real-time
    about your travels may confi rm you aren’t at home – letting
    someone target your house. So, be careful
    2.Don’t be fooled. If you do post personal information
    on a site like Facebook or Twitter, criminals can use it to
    send you emails that appear to come from a friend or
    other trusted source – even the site itself. This is called
    “phishing.” The lesson is: Don’t click links or attachments
    unless you trust the source. For example, be wary of emails
    that say there is a problem with your account, then ask you
    to click on a link and input your username and password.
    The link may connect to a site that looks exactly like
    Facebook, Twitter, your bank’s web site, but is really a fake
    site used to get even more personal information. This ploy
    can also be used to infect your computer with a virus or
    keystroke logger.

    There are some fundamentals you must take account of when you are into Social Networks for business or promotion or traffic or readers.

    1: Get Engaged into Groups & Communities.
    2: Recognize your target audience.
    3: Start a conversation.
    4: While inviting people to join your network, Let them know that you have a genuine reason to have them into your social network.
    5: Start interactive campaigns like 'A Weekly Poll' or a Quiz or Contest.

    If you can think of more points that can help the social network efforts, please add it to the above list.
