    I would recommend building accounts on Google+ , Facebook, and Twitter. Building accounts doesn't mean building them and leaving them, initially you'll have to work a lot to stabilize them. If it seems too much work you can start working on them on at a time. I am not sure pinterest will work well for you in the niche you described, but you can try. LinkedIn is also good if you're trying to connect B2B.

    Search the forums you'll find threads regarding how to get traffic from all three platforms. I wrote one regarding Twitter earlier.

    The rules are pretty much the same on all networks, you just have to tweak them according to the audience in all platforms. You can find a lot of creative ideas to appeal the people all over internet.

    Study your competitors, the successful ones, and look at how they manage their pages. What are they doing to get attention. How are people responding from them. Shape your own campaign based on that. Try to give people all that they are doing with something extra. As much as you can manage.

    Social media isn't about hard selling, it's all about building customer relationships. You must engage your consumers, you must get them to trust you by interacting with them. Giving them value, and showing them you care about them. It's not that difficult, you just need to be regular and you can start reaping rewards in weeks.

    The answer 2 varies for different people. Some people prefer to boost posts other like ads, you should try what works best for you. experiment.

      Hi Markeeter,
      I am a newbie to all this internet marketing thing but from what I have learned so far, I think you are right when you say social media is not about hard selling. It is about engaging people in the conversation and giving them relevant information before even attempting to sell anything.

        Make sure to have the link to your website in your post, but the point of boosting is to increase the reach of that particular post.

        The more targeted people your post reaches, the more you increase the chances of people engaging with your post and clicking through, which then will bring more traffic to your website.

    1. The best social media platforms as far as popularity and traffic is concerned are Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+, Pinterest. The traffic from these sources are very high quality.

    Keep in mind that each platform also responds differently to every market. If you have no experience marketing your products in any of these platforms, then you're going to have to test a lot of different campaigns.

    For example, if you get a really good response with a Tweet you make on Twitter it does not mean you'll get the same engagement on Facebook. You will have to translate that Tweet or post to work in that particular platform.

    2. I personally don't use Facebook ads simply because I've learned how to get a really high reach organically with my posts. It's all a matter of really knowing your audience and providing them with content they love. However, Facebook ads are very inexpensive right now now and if you have a marketing budget you can afford to do a lot of testing faster that way.

    You can start with google+, Twitter, linkedin, and pose a question that gets your viewer/followers to respond to your post, and if they like the information your providing from their feedback ask them to share the post with their viewer this might get the ball rolling if it's a good topic or product that your sharing with your audience.
    You probably are better off looking in the direction of the market your trying to reach to get that additional traffic your trying to gain. Test the water on each of the social media sites, and see which one work the best for needs.

    Like what other blog owners do. They give freebies.
    For example: I know a cosmetic shop that was able to get a lot of people to engage in her facebook page because of her cosmetic give away.

    You can try this do. Give discount coupons or give aways.

    Make your followers curious, share something quite intriguing but of course stay relevant.
    The key to get engagement is to engage. The more you engage the more you'll get engagement.
    It is actually quite fun to experiment in social media, you'll be able to know what works best for you and what's not. Sometimes it depends on your niche, sometimes on your strategies.

      Thanks for your valuable information . Currently i am posting 3 poster with an image by promoting my services . Weekly thrice i am sharing the Original content with 500 words relevant to my business( Niche based), is it the right way to start engaging in Facebook ? Meanwhile i also heard about running the Facebook Contest ? Do you have any idea about it ? what kind of context will engage my fans ? If you have any experience in it, please share your views .

      Thanks

      The gist of social media is being self-effacing i.e. all about your consumers/customers/users. Talk about your niche, your perspective on various happenings in your niches. Give them value. build authority and trust factor and subtly promote your services.
      Most importantly, ENGAGE. People often struggle with engagement. I once used to too! But my FB pages experience more than 50% People Talking about this whereas that of others are usually around 1-2% of their likes. Reason? My proven and tested status posts formula. You can use these too to sky rocket your engagement!

    Additionally, twitter has to be leveraged too. Find the influentials in your niche by using tools like KLOUT, TOPSY. Find the hashtags that people are using to talk about your niche. Be proactive and participate in the ongoing conversation. Share news that you find about your niche along with stating your perspective.
    The key is to be consistent. Rinse and repeat!

    hi guys..
    let me share a few step process which im using now a days for getting traffic n lead genration.
    after a lot of studies i have reached to this method.

    1st) use video in place of images in ur ad creation...video's are in right now..use video with communication to create curiosity in user.
    2)use "timeline optim" it will help to make this video a lead genrater tool.
    at a fix time a popup will come asking to put "name" n "email id" with a dilog button "sign in" or something else....this will get u serious leads data..the data will be collected in the timeline optin ..also the moment the user fill in these details..he will be redirected to the url u want...it can be ur fb page or ur site or may be ur blog.
    3)use a auto responder mailing service..connect it to timeline optin...it will respond back to the user with ur ready mailer.
    4)for making this video ad reach to millions..use FB ad or u can use some fb automation software to post it to 100's of groups or target the required client.

    now u got the list of leads..keep on using them for future business genration.

    hope this helps...would love to know n learn if some one can add on to this.

    regards..

    If your content is original, well written and interesting, then yes! Share it!
    Facebook contests are also a great way to engage users. Many pages do something like this: they organize a contest, mention the prize/prizes they're gonna give away (it can be anything, from objects to books to anything you can think of that your fans will like), and most of the times, the way to participate is to like the fan page and share the post announcing the contest. it's just an idea, if you can think of something more original, then do it.

    According to me, Linkedin is the best platform in social media to get traffic from real user because all are professionals.
    Facebook page likes is the best one among Facebook ads because people(page liker) can see your each update.

    1. The best platforms are Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Among three of them Facebook is more effective.
    2. You should invest on Facebook real like and Facebook paid adds.

  • In Facebook you can get instant traffic by using Post engagement and then bidding for Clicks.
    The image has to be one that stand out, text should be short and to the point with a clear CTA. When you target your audience you will need to research well your niche. Based on that you can target them by interest, education level, age, digital activities, etc. You can use as many elements you want or just one.
    Split audiences to test which ads convert betters is a must to get the better ROI.
    Other way to get qualified traffic is by joining groups and posting your services or automate the task.

    For me, Facebook is the best platform to get traffic/leads almost instantly. But if you want to use twitter, it's better to use twitter cards well designed and your audience has to be targeted very wel from the beggining to get positive results.

    Well, I would go for a Facebook fanpage.
    The more likes the more people will be reached in Facebook.
    And when you use Audience Insights in your Ads manager, man..
    Your targeted traffic goes viral..! Woohoo

    for instance:
    When you write a blog post on your site,
    then you place the blog post in your fanpage.
    You boost your new blog with Audience Insights,
    and you sure have very targeted traffic!! Why?
    Because you have so many options in Audience Insights.
    Like profile keywords, Job wise, yearly income, interests,
    country + Region etc etc...
