5 Social Media Optimization Tips for Newbies

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.

1. About

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.

2. Information

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.

3. Timing

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

4. Interaction

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.

    Enjoyed this post a lot! I do feel that it is ok to mention a product that you are selling but only to a certain degree. The object is to get the word out about the product. If you don’t, no one will know it exists. BUT, I feel it is not ethical to use Social Media for only that purpose as you state. The goal is to network personally and interact with your audience, share ideas, and learn from one another. But every now and then, I don’t find it wrong to make a mention of a product you are involved with. and wish to get the word out. If anyone is interested, they will investigate and that will be that. Just don’t use Social Media is a pushy manner regarding selling products.

    Doug@ I agree that social media is not just for promoting products or services but a place where you interact with humans to share and learn.

    Interaction is much needed for Social Media. If you don’t interact with your social media friends, then there is no point in using it, since it wont do any good at all.
