Social Media is all about interaction and networking. It can give you a lot of benefits, but if used in the right direction. As a newbie you will have to learn a lot of social media, because social media is not a tool or application. It is a community based portal, where you will be facing and dealing with humans. Where there is intervention of humans there must be some rules that you must follow. If you will not follow the rules, no one is going to respect you.
The rules are nothing but guidelines that tells you about the right direction. If you want to stand out of the crowd then you must follow these rules.
You must provide basic information about your self and your business in your Profile. So that everyone can know that who you are and what are your goals. I love to meet and interact with those who provide real and authentic information in there profile.
The more quality and meaning full information you provide the better and stronger will be your network. Readers only appreciate quality rather then quantity. So make sure that you must provide something valuable to your readers.
Timing is very important in social media, you must spend some time in social media websites. As I told you in the beginning of this post that social media is all about interaction, so you must interact with your network
That is what social media is all about. Spending time is not enough, you must also listen to your friends, share information and engage your network.
5. Don’t Force
I personally don’t like those who are selling any products or services through social media without the permission of their followers. That is what Relationship marketing tells you that don’t force your clients to buy a product or service.
Social Media can be use for so many purposes, but the bottom line is that it helps you in promoting your brand. Whether you are providing information, selling products or services, promoting your website or blog or increasing your network, Social Media is there to help you.
