    I want to use social media accounts properly like fb, twitter, linkedin and google+ but posting different marketing strategy on those accounts makes it looks redundant. What are the things that need to consider when posting on those accounts? To avoid being spammy to your audiences and to encourage more people to view your post. Any ideas or suggestion? I love hearing more from you. Cheers..

    One of the most important things to remember is not to overtly promote yourself too much. Doing things like retweeting an interesting tweet, or sharing some helpful information, rather than making every post an advertisement, will bring more visitors, and by extension more potential customers, to your business. For Linkedin, post an interesting comment in a discussion, or start a discussion yourself. You can also share an interesting article you have read, or on Twitter tweet a link to the article. On Facebook, you can add an app to your page so that people can sign into your page, and you can occasionally offer them a special deal.
    Basically, present yourself as an authority in your business, and potential customers will come to you.

    Post good tips and quality content, then mix a few coupons and specials in there. Works great

    I noticed these past days that those "how to's" are the ones that most entertained social media topic by many users.

    while posting in social media you should ensure weather the content is relevant and will it reach my target audience. while promoting your business in FB, u need not to post all the post which is related to business. post some interesting stuffs. your post also focus some concern on environment and some general posts.

    You can post some articles about your company like press release or that are guest post on other blogs. May be the content is appearing on a third party site, it is still about you or your own content.The point of posting other people's content is to give others some of the spotlight.

    Well, the tough part of marketing is the redundant part. It is really difficult to approach your audiences in different mediums using different ways to market your product. Unlike TV Commercials where it can be repeated frequently at interval of TV shows, online marketing requires efficient interaction with your audience as well as what your audience "need" and are "trending" ..

    It is very difficult to point out what should we posts and what should we not. As far as products and websites are concerned, they all are different.

    Social media is a good way of online market promotion. Social networking site like facebook, twitter is increasing your site traffic. Another way article submission, forum posting, blog commenting is good for online market promotion.
