I have read in an article the steps involved in social media marketing.

1. Build a marketing strategy that includes email, rather than one that focuses solely on social media.
2. Include a social call to action in your emails. This allows customers to share the information they received over social channels, increasing the spread of your message.
3. Build campaigns rather than just emails and posts. It's imperative to tie everything together. For example, a Facebook post should support an email campaign and vice versa.
4. Connect your social sites to email so that it's easier for your customers and prospects to connect with your company in the way they prefer.
5. Focus your message and don't overload the customers. If you have more to say, save it for later.
6. Be mobile friendly and make sure that any information you send to customers can be easily read over a mobile device, allowing them to access information anywhere and anytime.
7. Make sure that tactics are valuable and sustainable--just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.
8. Find out what your audience wants and responds to and give them that content and experience, thus remaining relevant to them.
9. Create a great customer experience--if you're creating a good experience, social media will reward you, but if you're creating a bad one, it will kill you.
10. Rinse and repeat--keep doing what you're doing well.

The steps to take really depend on where you want to go, but I guess the first one would be choosing just which sites you want to integrate with your social media strategy. Knowing the pros and cons of each site definitely help, and after that you have to know how to maximize your efforts in each of these social media sites. Here is an article to help on that. http://smallbusiness.printplace.com/...eting-efforts/

Well, It depends on the kind of marketing you want to do up there. Internet marketing is easy to do but hard to master. It is said about internet marketing that go where your market is. So find and focus on your potential customers.

I think it's also important to just be yourself. When you do a post, don't just spam with articles. Talk in real language that people can understand and relate to.

Social Media needs your continuous attention towards it. It is a bit time consuming find your market and focus on it. Create a content than catches the hold of them. Links must be qualitative.

Well SMO doesn't help improve rankings. It increases site visibility and enhances brand credibility.

Default Smm

Steps are to involve in Social Media Marketing be social try to be interested for people who are in Social Networking Sites. Try to see what they want. Let me tell you different people have different needs. Even if your target audience is using Social networking sites, let's say Facebook, Twitter, You tube etc. their need are different in different locations or age vise.
Maybe firstly you need to segment after that start targeting.
In google there are lot of references how to start SMM.

SMM helped my business to grow. It is great way to start.
