      Using Social Media / Networking Sites To Advertise Business

      I have an e-commerce website. If somebody can give some ideas on how to advertise my business through social media websites, it would be of great help. Thanks a lot!

      Social media plays an important role in online advertising. If you are looking for an inexpensive or a free source to advertise your business, then social media websites can immensely help you reach a large audience.

      With the competition becoming intense in every business, it has become essential to use cost-effective marketing techniques that can help you advertise your business as well as know your customers and prospects better. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Fast Pitch, StartUp, Newsvine, Sphinn, Hypediss, and Hubspot are some of the social media websites that can help you achieve these goals.

      Some of the key points that you should remember while advertising on social media websites are:

      1. Social media websites are not meant for aggressive marketing. You should subtly promote your products and services on them.

      2. Consider social media websites as a platform to interact with your customers and prospects. Listen to them and understand their needs, wants, expectations, and aspirations.

      3. Just talking about your products and company on such websites isnít enough. Share some other information that would be of interest to the website community or your fans.

      4. Becoming the member of a social media website is not enough. You should actively participate in discussions and submit links.

      There are several benefits of advertising through social networking websites:

      1. Once you sign up at a social networking website, you can form your own community comprising your customers, prospects, and vendors. As there would be various discussions in the community regarding your new products, experience of shopping at your website, what kind of customer service is expected from you, and how your competitors are faring, you could get useful insights on how you can improve your business.

      2. You can use texts, videos, and photographs to spread your message across the community.

      3. You could send your message to a specific group based on their age or gender.

      Here are some tips for using social media websites:

      1. You should create a nice profile of yourself or your company. Give a short description about your business, products, services, and company’s motto.
      2. Include the logo of your company in the profile page.
      3. Add back links of your websites.

      I have been advertising through social media websites for long. Not only am I able to advertise my business through these websites but they also give me an opportunity to learn how I can serve my customers better and what I can do to take my business to greater heights.

      I’d suggest that if you are planning to use social media websites for promoting your business, then you should first decide your goal and then action plan. This will help you work in the right direction.

      I have created a Facebook fan page recently. I think Facebook is the most sought after social media website that both individuals and the business community love. There are around 400 million Facebook users and therefore this website offers good potential to advertise your business.

      Oh sure… You should first log into your Facebook account. If you don’t have a Facebook account, then you should set up one.

      Once you’re logged in, you will find an advertising link at the bottom of the page. Click on this link to create a fan page.

      Once you have created a fan page, you should customize it by adding photographs and information about your products and company and then publish it.

      You need to have a custom landing page for your Facebook fan page. This page should give an idea about you or your business. You could also add a video on this page and ask the visitors to become fans.

      I have also heard a lot about Facebook fan pages. But after posting the information on the page about my products and services, what should I do next so that my fans keep visiting my Facebook fan page?

      Very good question! Most people forget about their fan page once they have published it. But if you want to gain from your Facebook fan page, you should add interesting content to your page periodically.

      There are a few other things that could make your page interesting and engaging. For example, you could set up contests, games, and polls on your fan page.
