Default Social Media

I have read a lot about using social media to promote online business but where do you go for information on how to properly use these mediums. I created a business page but can not figure out how to post a link, quote, or what ever it may be to my page. It goes to my personal FB. I am not social media savvy at all and need a tutorial just to set up and use them. I have tried YouTube but need more information than I received there.

Moz has really good guides. I haven't used their social media guide myself, but I like their other stuff a lot - easy to understand and useful.

There are likely better YouTube videos about the minutiae of doing specific things on each social media platform, such as posting your link on your facebook business page. The challenge is finding the one that is right for you and your level of knowledge.

If you have specific questions, feel free to PM me and I can see what I can do to help you.

Don't worry about it! It's frustrating when things aren't intuitive.

I think as a beginner, you need to check what your competitors are doing on their fb page. Don't post the promotive content on the page, they must be informative and engaging. Join the groups to share your thoughts also quote images on the page.

Know your competitor site. Do complete analysis of your competitor site and start doing seo or promote in social media sites.

Default Social Media

Social media is a great tool to promote online business. One should always check who is your competition, how are they doing and what makes you different. When doing promotion, show useful information about the business. Also, constantly update the page in which you are promoting.
