    The video you posted isn't opening for me, anyways coming to your question:

    If you manage social media well, yes it does help in driving traffic to your website. Use social media to know your audience and connect with them by posting quality content regularly, replying to their queries, and keeping them entertain. Once your audience trusts you, you can slowly start to redirect them to your website to certain useful posts, or you can hold contents and get their addresses, you can also give free giveaways like a E-book to get them to your site.

    It varies for what social media platform your using.

    I'd suggest sticking w/ one and mastering that one first then moving to others.

    I'd recommend Facebook first because it's one of the largest, and youtube as well.

    You can start a like campaign there & target other websites that are your same niche that have fanpages.

    For any social media website though, you'll want to provide quality content, engage with your audience, continue to build your audience, and stay consistent with it.

    Consistancy is probably the hardest part for a lot of people, but do this for 30 days, and then it'll become a habit.

    Like many companies, we are having great sucess with Facebook ads. Some companies are paying less then 5 cents per click to target an ad that targets specific business groups, customer interests, finanical ability or other social media behavior. This targeting is even more thorough then Google Adwords. This is the best PPC ROI in the industry. The time is act is now, as the more people that become aware of Facebook ads- the more the cost per click will eentually increase. I hope this helps.

    You don't need to create 9283589325892358932589 accounts and post BS / Spam on every single one of them as well.

    You can use the core social media sites..Twitter, FB , Instagram and maybe even pinterest. Start creating engaging posts. Obviously you can have the best post out there but it doesn't do anything if you don't know how to get people to your site. So what are some ways? There's spending $$ on ads on these social media platforms and targeting the right audience... There's hashtags that you can type and you can then reach out to those people message them / direct message them / etc. etc. and let them know about your site. You can follow people and hope that they follow you back. Remember, just cause you have a social media page and post on it doesn't mean jack squat. You have to reach out for others to see it.

    For social media, you need to make a proper plan. You can plan small updates along with the related images for social media.
    In social media, users got easily fascinated with images and good presentation of content. You should first understand the behavior of your target audience i.e what they like what type of information they read more etc. On that basis, you can plan your social media content and share with your users.
