I send out a Friday SEO tip to a mailing list of about 2000 people. I then convert that email to a blog post on the web site's blog, and then do a status update in Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and Google Plus with a link to the blog post (it helps if you have an interesting image in the blog post).

This system works pretty well for me. It may do for you

it totally depends upon how much targeted traffic you got on your relevent social media channel lets say if you have 10 targatted likes on your facebook may be there is chance that you get one or 2 sales out of it....and i am telling you the fact because that happened with I am running an email service provider company known as bulkresponse and when i ESTABLISHED MY PAGE ON FACEBOOK 1 got 9 likes and I actually generated a sale!!!

Generating lead through social networking site is a bit tough. All required to do thing is a good strategy, excellent implementation and tools to help you manage and monitor your campaigns. Social marketing is evolving from company-buyer into peer-to-peer influence marketing. The golden rule of social media marketing is:
1. You should have good engaging content with solid offers.
2. Be clear about what you want your audience to do after consuming your content or engaging with your brand.
3. Always add value.

Smile Generating Traffic!

I get a ton of leads from Social Networking Sites like Facebook & Twitter, I've just started posting my content in some of the LinkedIn Groups so it's way to early for me to start tracking my traffic from my site.

One thing that will help you build a list or capture your leads information is to have an free irresistible giveaway or opt in offer that grabs your readers attention & gets them to opt in.

Once they opt-in you can start building up trust & relationships with them by offering valuable niche related information (that they may not always get on your blog).

Then they won't hesitate to buy from you once they see the value behind what you are offering them.

Hope this helps!

Make sure you are generating a traffic of people having the possibility to convert them into customers. Social Media marketing needs a powerful strategy to reach out the potential customers.

It has been nearly 2 years when i created a business page on facebook. I am getting queries but i am unable to track the lead that from where does it come. From google analytic account i can track the keywords, referral and search engine traffic but unable to find the lead source.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Squadron!

I feel that this technique of marketing looks new to me and also well disguised for target audiences to figure out. This might reduce my effort on social media platforms. Will definitely try out.

In the past I've been able to generate leads and sales from social. I've only just started using social for this particular company I'm with. I'll let you know if it works.
