Default IS There Any Tool For Social Media Marketing?

I have been trying to promote my site through social media marketing. I have tried many techniques but nothing seems to work. IS there any tool for social media marketing that I can use to promote my website?

Are you blogging regularly? If so, you can pull sentences out of your articles and post them in a free software called Hootsuite that will slow drip post to FB, Twitter, and LI. This gets us almost 3000 hits a month to our website.

Hi,



May I ask what have you tried? In short, social media needs content to work. Many people think that a Facebook or Twitter page equals success. But it's really about sharing your expertise with an interested audience. Do you have a blog?

Yes there are a lot of tools that have emerged for social media marketing. Although social media platforms are typically free, sometimes it takes a bit of an investment in time and/or tools to take it to the next level (a lot of big businesses have staff devoted to managing their programs).

Like Novumarketing said, it really depends on what you are trying to accomplish exactly. Are you looking to automate things? Then Hootsuite might be a good tool for you. Are you looking to add more apps to your Facebook page? Then North Social is good for that. There's also a company called Sprout Social that has a lot of cool tools for social media.

I have a collection of them on my site here if you want to review more: http://www.sbmarketingtools.com/social-media-tools

Most of them have free trials to check them out before you buy anything. If you are not looking to invest in a tool, then time is the best investment you can make to help social media perform better for you... time and a good flow of content.

I think it is more effective if you target your audience in social media platform. It is more helpful. Try to do so.

Thatís what is challenging about promoting your site online. The results are not immediate. You just have to continue what you are doing and monitor your progress.

I've seen a lot of tools around that seem to promote social media to create a list of follower. Some claim it creates lead. Some others just say that you will receive a large enough volume of discussions.

What I haven't seen yet is a tool that also has some stats and results, case studies with proven results.

Thanks.

Hi. some other tools are used to automate every social media links that had been spread. Try to look a tool that will only help you in some ways, not to automate the whole sense of having social media,.

Well, what I meant is that many people invest a ton of time into social media but often they don't know if it has helped at all. There is often not a way to measure it.
