    You can just as easily fail as excel in social media. Setting yourself up for success will make all the difference. That, coupled with realistic expectations, is the pathway to a successful social media campaign.

    There are three things a small business needs to think about when venturing into social media for the first time:

    Your personnel.
    Targeting the right audience.
    Your website.
    Approach these in the right order for maximum affect. Without the right socially engaged people on your staff, it doesn’t really matter where you plan on "playing" or what your website says. The engagement and return won't be there.

    There is no link, but first of all, -you should have mentioned that-, there is a large fan base or lots of friends needed to be successful!

    "Costly", which is not really, if you optimize it correctly media campagins are very useful until you get few thousands targeted likes for your page. Then you can do something with it.

      This isn't always true. I have a page with 200 likes and I probably make more sales off that page than most make off a page with 10,000 likes.

      Here's the kicker, over 90% of the people that purchased from that page were more interested in buying what I had to offer than actually liking the page.

      Facebook sales happen on impulse, likes have a shelf life and eventually go cold. If you dont capture that sale almost instantly you would be best served placing effort into moving those likes over to an email list where people do buy over time than you would be wasting time thinking likes are the be all and end all of Facebook.

    Great tips...

    My 0.02 is that it's good to build a relationship briefly before just slapping connections in the face with spam or offers off the bat. Too many users have done this on FB and have corrupted the hell out of it.

    Be genuine as well, when engaging, don't say your doing this or making all of this money if it's not true, can't "fake it till you make it"....

    For making your website popular on social networking site first of all write good contents for your website then create pages or groups, post your content there. Add more peoples, make regular presentations and never dominate your commentators. Make your website popular by getting more likes and share.

    I think the hardest part is figuring out what 'good' or 'viral' content is. It takes time to get a feel for what people like and it can be different from niche to niche.

    Easy to say, harder to do.

    Unless the posts are engaging, people won't interact with the page and thus the main purpose of social media page is defeated.

    • In my opinion, For effective social media to small business join twitter, LinkedIn. Follow more and more people regularly on Twitter.. Means increase twitter followers. Build relationships by following back on twitter and Figure out # of tweets per day.
