This post will give you some valuable tips on social media marketing, starting with totally free methods.
Social Media Marketing on Facebook
While Facebook is the biggest of the social media sites, you cannot get a lot of traffic from Facebook quickly, easily and for free.
Why do I say that? It takes a long time to make friends on Facebook, even if you have multiple accounts, and nobody uses Facebook as a search engine, (or very few), so to get free traffic there you either need to spam people, pages or groups, or have your Facebook page found in a Google search.
It is probably easier to compete for a Google search with your actual site, unless you get a ton of likes, and other back links within Facebook and from other quality sites.
You can buy Facebook page likes on the home page, but that’s not free. The best free way to get lots of free traffic is Twitter in my opinion.
Social Media Marketing on Twitter
I get most of my traffic from Twitter, in fact if you’re reading this now, that’s probably where you came from, unless I managed to get on the first page of Google for social media marketing.
Take a look at a previous post to see what Twitter tools I use to get tens of thousands of followers, and send out tweets to them automatically.
You can buy Twitter followers, although it still takes a lot of work managing your Twitter followers because if you don’t follow back, many will eventually unfollow you.
Check out the home page to get Professional Social Promotion to set up scheduled tweets to our huge list of followers, and let us handle the hard work.
Social Media Marketing on StumbleUpon
There’s one more free social media marketing tip I can offer, and that is learn to use StumbleUpon. I have gotten hundreds of thousands of views from there, and it’s worth taking five minutes a day setting that up.
It’s a little complicated, so here is a link to an article on how to use the StumbleUpon toolbar.
I hope that these social media marketing tips were helpful, you can of course use Facebook Ads, but we can get you traffic cheaper. If you’re looking to buy something, try the social promotion services here at Professional Social Promotion first.
