    Thanks,

  • Totally agree, many people are all to interested in just spamming sites and duplicating content so the users don`t get any real value.

    Nice article.

  • Yes putting the right content to reach your target audience is the number one rule of thumb to being successful in the social network business. There are literally tens of thousands of untapped basically niches that you can use to make massive amounts of money…

  • Sam

    Facebook and twitter are ok.. But myspace ? None of my friends update myspace anymore

  • I think in Social media sites an occasional link may be okay but like your article says, it’s important to socialize and not just promote yourself without without any real interaction with your friends and followers. You’re absolutely right in that you don’t want to be seen as a spammer.

  • Thanks for the great tips! There is a lot written about social media sites and I think like you said, the key is to post useful information. People are tired of seeing all the spam that is around. If people see spam info they move on very quickly…

  • HI,

    Thanks for sharing. I’ll Try to promote my business in social media sites

  • My experience with social is you first need to establish branding, before making an offer. If you are looking for real promotion, it should be the best promo at the moment. You can leverage your previous marketing with social.

  • Couldn’t agree more with you Melo. I think the issue with SM is that people want the proof that it can make you money and want the results but it doesn’t work that way, it takes time to build up your SM reputation just as it takes time to build a brand.

    You need to be genuine, and dedicate time to updating your profile and providing good content, you have to really earn those ‘likes’ and re tweets. I think that is why so many success stories come from small, independantly owned businesses who have really commited to the process.

  • I know a lot of people using Facebook to sell stuff especially direct selling. It gets annoying when people repeatedly tags you on the same product everyday.

    I follow a T-shirt printing company on Twitter and they are fun to follow because they tweet their inspirations or their processes or whatever they were doing at that moment.
