That's a very broad topic. There have been (very long) books written to cover all the details of social media marketing. Are there any specific questions you have, specific social networks you'd like to learn more about?

Social Media Marketing consists of the attempt to use social media to persuade consumers that one's company, products and/or services are worthwhile.

The most important detail about social media is, you need to be consistent. Then If the other members see you as a positive value, they are going to want to associate with you. If you post nothing but links and advertisements with the only value being to yourself, they will start to ignore you.

It's a great place to practice Attraction Marketing instead of using it as an advertising board.

You will find a lot of great resources for social media marketing beginners on the Web, just google it. And bare in mind that there are different social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others) and they have completely different audiences. So, you social marketing strategies should be planned accordingly.

I am still learning about social media marketing. The key is to focus on relationships with your customer base. Remember people are social media to have fun. You should not over load them with direct marketinf

That depends a lot on what social media website you frequent. Some are geared more toward business than chit-chat.

Social Media marketing can be very effective given that you can reach your target there. For example,if you aim to reach other businesses, social media may not be the best outlet (although social media can still help spread awareness). On the other hand, if you are trying to sell puppies then a social media site like Facebook would be highly beneficial. Remember that although you might not sell directly to people on social media, it can still help raise awareness.

The only thing I sell is in the make money online niche, so social media is a natural if I target it.

Default Learning about social media

Hi

A big subject - too big to cover here.

I suggest you get familiar with:

1. The reasons behind the popularity of social media
2. What are the main social media platforms - their similarities & differences
3. Why do you want to use it?

Regards,
David.
