Social Marketing has become the big thing in recent times. If done right, it can be a powerful way to build your web presence and your brand. The problem is, there are so many social networking sites and so many approaches to how you can use them for Internet Marketing.

Personally, I am STILL trying to make my way through the confusing maze of social networking. I am doing well in some areas and not so good in others. Don’t tell my spouse I admitted this, but I need help. Fortunately, I have found it. …

Some of the most popular social networking sites are Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn.

Your website, and in particular your blog, is also an important resource to be included in your Social Marketing strategy.

While many marketers refer to it as “Social Marketing,” some call it “Social Media Marketing.” Whichever term you prefer, the focus is typically on promoting your website, your products or services, Social Marketing Strategyor yourself on social networking sites like the popular ones mentioned above. The idea is to create exposure and awareness for your business and to drive targeted traffic to your website, your blog page or your sales pages.

The strategy behind being “social” on these sites is to develop your image as a knowledgeable, approachable and dependable source for the products or services you sell, or for information related to your market niche. In other words, you want members of those social sites to get to know you better so they will come to trust you more.

Another advantage of social networks is that each member is the hub of a wider social circle and if they like you, they will tell others about you.
