    I say start a blog and use the autopost plugin for WP to post your blog updates to your Twitter and Facebook accounts whenever you post to your blog. Use hashtags, too. Clue in your readers to retweet you.

      Build relationship with people on Facebook. Use a real picture of you as profile picture, and get to know people. If people don't know you, then they will not spend money on whatever you are promoting.

        This is one of the best ideas so far. If the reader doesn't feel an emotional connection to the person posting, they are less likely to want to read more posts, like the posts or even share.

    You can use Facebook as a people search engine to only add in people that would be perfect for what you are offering. Add them as friends. Stay involved in their lifes. Become a real friend. Share entertaining and valuable stuff on your wall. Engage in conversations. Don't be a pushy salesman. Be a asset and friend to your crowd. Start building your audience.

    I agree with the james, Follow the steps
    1- Search like minded people in FB search bar like Online Money, Pet Lover or whatever is your keywords
    2- Send them friend request.
    3- Share some valuable stuff at your wall.
    4- After few days send personal message to them. (Dont just write spammy or common message, check their profiles, read About section and try some personal message to create some interaction, Dont offer or invite anything in the first message).

    Social media is a very useful means of promoting a business, sharing contents, and getting traffic. However, there are social media sites that work well for others but not for you and vice versa. For SEO you need to look first at what you specialize in and then decide what social media sites are suitable for you.
    Social media sites are meant to connect you with others in your industry or niche but not to waste your best content on. So you have to publish your content on your own blog first for it to get exposure on social media. The best way to get exposure is not blatant self promotion but outreach and participation.

  • Ask your real friends/co-workers to like your page first. But when you have a personal Facebook page, you can use that to encourage people to like your page by asking people/Facebook friends nicely to like it. You can also have a mini Facebook contest. People love contests, it will help you gain more likers especially when the contests are really interesting.

    What niche are you in? Facebook has a search feature type in your niche and search for people and request a friend request. If you have a local business search for people in your city and friend them.

    that is how you start promoting. Then get a blog. Find your audience first.

      Thank you
      It is tough but I am sure you can do it.

      First thing you need to do is build your audience, look for users that talk about the same niche you are in, use Facebook search. Follow these people as they normally follow you back.

      You can try these as well:

      1. Offer Creative Incentives - Keep your fans engaged with fun promotions like launching a simple comment contest.

      2. Post A Status Update With a Highly Shareable Content - This is what they call "Facebook candy." It is a type of content which Facebook users get very excited about and immediately want to share it to the whole world. You can get this done by creating images that contain inspirational quotes.

      3. Create a Tight Community - Be visible on your Facebook page. Respond to comments, messages and posts. It is a SOCIAL media site so you need to be social.

      Hmm.. wordpress blog. is that a dot org or a dot com? ok, just kidding.
      Listen up, this is a stupid strategy. Why would you want to have a hosted domain for social media? Just to monetize?
      You can do that within face book. Most are using affiliate programs and drive traffic to their affiliate site.
      Wouldn't it make more sense to use the blog platform here on warrior forum. After all because of the forums authority the search engines index the blogs and articles pretty fast. all you have to do is send your blog traffic to one of your social sites or to a you tube video to presell the customer.

      Maybe I am wrong. If I am let me know

    How to use Social Media for Promotion?
    Basically, you have to create free blog to place your products and services such as WordPress. Use social media tools such as Facebook, Tweeter, or YouTobe. On those social media tools, you can put backlinks of your business site (WordPress site).

      I agree, there is a very well written report about the myths of Network Marketing 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing which clearly states that social media not work always as those are mostly used for friendships/relationships.

      Though these relationships can be converted into sale but it depends upon how reliable is your product otherwise there are chances that you will ruin your friendship and credibility. Unlike other advertise media, social media take longer time to promote yourself. First you have to make friendship, then know about others interests before offering any product. Direct sale will never work there otherwise you will be considered as a SPAM.

      If you send friend requests to anonymous people there are chances that you will soon get warning message from facebook to stop sending requests as many can complains (my personal experience )

    I created a set of videos explaining how I use Facebook to market some products, I hope it helps:

    Facebook Montreal - YouTube

    Facebook Montreal 2 - YouTube

    Facebook Montreal 3 - YouTube

    What I basically do is create a fan page around a recent news or event, I drop it in social media places, specifically Reddit, on the fan page I create a little bit of controversy or I take side on the news, from there I see what is the profile of the people that have clicked like and see if there are some broad offers in Offervault that match the profile of the people I have in my fan page.

    Other technique I use is to create Facebook pages that will generate leads for an email sequence, hope it helps

    Many people ask me the same question: if starting an online business is so easy, why doesn't everyone do it? That is a great question, but the truth is that whoever tries to tell you that starting an internet business is easy is grossly exaggerating. The truth is that an online business can be quicker and cheaper to start, but that by no means is to say that it is easy or won't take time. To ensure your success, make sure that you carefully devise sound Internet marketing strategies.

    You will hear a lot of conflicting opinions about what Internet marketing strategies should you use: social media, link building, seo, etc. The truth is that a great strategy is to incorporate multiple sources to get traffic and build your brand.

    You should start with just one, perfect it, than add another element to it. And remember, that things will change online and you will need to adjust your strategy accordingly. Sound complicated? It can be, and that is why so few people actually enjoy any real success with an online business.

    It can be done, but if you plan on treating your internet marketing business more like a hobby rather than a business, it will fail. Even if you do see some success it will be limited. So, where should you begin? What skills do you need to learn first?

    Well, to a degree, that is up to you. All of those "gurus" who tell you that you need to concentrate on seo or link building (which technically is an element of seo) or social media, etc. are telling you to start there for one of two reasons:
    one, they have personally had success with that method and it is the method they are familiar with, and / or two, they are trying to sell a product that will teach you that method.

    It's not necessarily a bad strategy but you do have to understand the motivation of the people and that their opinions are just that - opinions.

    In my opinion you should start with some basic seo knowledge and the first element of that is learning to do keyword research. Once you know how to pick out the best keywords you can then add those keywords (or have someone do it for you) to your website for what is called onsite seo.

    Though this may sound complicated, it isn't really. But it will take time to learn how to do it. That is where you should start. Or, the other thing you can do is to hire someone to do it for you, but I would recommend you learn at least the basics so that you can "watch over" the person doing the work for you. If you know nothing about how it all works, you can't know whether or not the person you hired even knows what they are doing.

    That is the reason I would recommend you take a little time and learn some basics.

    You can continue to learn new elements as you go along, again something I would recommend. This is some sound Internet marketing strategies that you can follow for the best chance of success.

    There are almost to many methods to mention in regards to growing a brand/business through Facebook or any other social media platform.

    The biggest thing that needs to be done is to first understand your customers.

    What type of customer determines what social media sites that you should setup. It also determines what methods you employ to engage them in social media. Lastly, it help you understand what tone to set in your social media message to get the best responses, whether that be light hearted, funny, serious, etc etc.

    Without knowing and understanding all of this, you are basically shooting in the dark with methods in hopes to gain customers and positive brand awareness.

    Too many people these days think that you just rank a site or post some funny pictures on facebook or have your blog post to facebook/twitter and it will turn into positive brand exposure and pay customers. If you are truly trying to grow your business online, then there are a lot of other factors and things to consider as well as employ to "correctly" have an online business presence.

      It is best to set up a separate Facebook account with your keywords incorporated into the account name. That way, it will be easier for search engines to find your page, which specifically points to your site. You can then post the URL of your site as well as its Facebook account on your wall with an invitation to visit and like it.

      On your site's Facebook account, search for groups related to your niche and join it in order to gain friends that are also interested in the same topic.

    Let me share my experience :

    1. Try to gain more friends with your own facebook account. (not a fanspage)

    2. From there, try to promote with your facebook friends about your fanspage.

    3. Ask them their opinion about your fanspage or products.

    4. By few likes on Fiverr.

    5. Try to update your content daily, offer the free materials. Make them falling in love with you.

    6. Sell it to them with low prices, and then up sell it!


    Google Plus :


    1. Find related circle by typing 'shared circle + your niche' on the search.

    2. Circled them, and share your FREE material related to your products or services.

    3. Let them circle you back.

    4. Bring them to your facebook fanspage.

    5. Sell it!

    Hope it helps..

    I use update status on Facebook with my advertising. It works because I have many friends, so my products and services can be sold out. As a result traffic comes.

    With social/blog networks, for maximum stick rate (not getting banned) you can follow the following rules:

    - Day 1: Manual register to all of the web 2.0 properties. Don't forget to put some profile information and verify email verification links.
    - Day 2: Submit a quality perfectly spin article without a link in the article content.
    - Day 3: Start submitting your quality perfectly spin article with links (Don't use more than 3 links per article).

    To save your time, you can use some platform help you manage all your social accounts. Ex: hootsuite, weontech.....

    You can invite people to like your page. If you do this, it will let others know that your page is out there and then if they like it, their friends will see that they liked it.

    Run a contest or sweepstakes tab on your fan page, have it fan gated, and then run a small ad ($10 a day or so) that points to the tab app. Normally you can get scores of likes per day and also a couple dozen emails (if the contest is good)

    Just from personal experience starting a company less than a year ago, make some interesting and relevant content on your website, post it to your fan page and pay 15 bucks to promote it to around 2,000 people. Make sure however in your promoted post that you build on Facebook that you ASK the readers to LIKE your facebook fan page.

    I won't ask what the company is going to do since you may not want to share that here, but can you describe your average customer? This greatly affects how/where you should focus your social media efforts.

    I'm not quite sure why everyone is telling you to market your business through your blog. Blogs are great to get more information out about your company but the question here was how to start your social media campaign from zero.

    Some great strategies are listed here but if you are a brick and mortar business there are some missing statements. you want to set up your FB to be optimized for graph search, then you want to find out where your customers "hang out" and have conversations with them there.

    You can use sms opt-in to get them to your chosen social media platforms, offer discounts or other special values for giving you a like, etc. Once you have a few likes, get them to interact with you...the average fB user has over about 200 friends and when they like or comment on your page it shows up in those friend's feeds. ..there are also ways to target those friends with direct ads.

    PM me for a free guide on using FB or Flikr

    I would like to mention a few steps here
    1. Invite all your friends on facebook to like your page.
    2.Try to target your local market at first.
    3. Add pictures of brand products and tag your friends in those pictures.
    4.Update relevant interesting pictures on that page.
    5. Update atleast 5 times different interesting things also you can say 'Good Morning, Happy Mother's Day etc.
    You will likes.

    SHORT Answer
    You can buy Facebook ads on the cheap, linking to your page with pinned posts of your content. PM me if you need help with this.

    LONG Answer
    If you're starting from zero, it really is a marketing (traffic) question. As cheesy (simple) as it may sound, it boils down to who your customers are and where do you think they are? Facebook pages? What kind? Groups? Individual friends, etc...

    Once you have a good idea of the who and the where.. simply just message enough of them to validate whether you are actually right.

    Once you've validated it is really these guys you're after, work out an arrangement (joint venture/cross promotion) where you help the group/list/page owner get what they want (e.g. special offer to your product/service). This is one "free" way you can get started with.

    Let me know how things turn out!

    Facebook works for me. I don't recommend to send friend requests to the people you don't know. They don't like it and if they flag you then you are going to be banned from Facebook forever. So be careful! Try to communicate with few people every day on Facebook, give them advise and they will "Like" your page. You will get 500 real likes on Facebook less than a year if you communicate with just a couple people per day. Update your blog daily so they can read more information and share with their friends.
