How do I make Facebook & Twitter work for IM

4 replies
I'll start by saying I'm a but of an old Fud. I want to know how to use Facebook & Twitter effectively to drive free traffic to my website.

I've tried joining relevant groups on Facebook and I tweet most days, but only have a few followers/friends on each after a couple of months.

I keep hearing how brilliant they can be to promote a website but both seem to be a heck of a lot of work for virtually nothing for me.

I'll end by saying I'm not completely useless with social media, Linkedin works very well for me, sending me 20% of my daily site traffic.

Specific practical advice please. Thanks.

      I know, I've read them - Join groups, post & tweet regularly, I do them all.

      My website is doing well in its (unusual) niche, but I just can't seem to make any headway in Facebook or Twitter.

      I think it's because I'm from an older generation and if I'm honest I just don't get it.

      Any "try this" type practical advice would be welcome.
