Social media plays an important role in promoting your business online. If you are marketing manager and your boss asks you to get some clients then social media is the best choice for it. I discuss some social media websites that you can use to increase your business.
Youtube is the largest video sharing website. You can upload funny and entertainment videos also. But with each video you can also tell the viewers about your company i.e. company website link, what company do, and why to use your company instead of others. If you make some information to the viewers by your videos then they certainly trust you and they want to keep in touch with you.
For example you have certainly viewed videos about review about laptops and mobiles. The video maker during the video also tells you about his shop and discounted price and from where you can get the product. So this is a type of advertisement also and it costs no money of you.
Twitter is another social media website that most of users visit daily and send the tweets to one another. If you want to get more benefit from twitter then use twitterfall.com. By using twitterfall.com you can filter the tweets you want by the topic and keywords. So you may get the tweets about any person which is willing to buy some product and then you can retweet that person to keep in touch with him.
Facebook is now well known website which has millions of page views daily. In facebook there are groups and pages where you can promote your business and also chat with your clients. Sometime you find good relationship with people and then they become your client later on.
Like in facebook, linkedin also has groups in it where the people can ask question from each other and also post jobs. You can also post your brief work history on linkedin so that interesting companies can contact you and get you hired. There is advanced CV search functionality in linkedin which can be used by the companies to search for right candidate.
There are also other social media sites like pinterest, google +, orkut and others. The main thing is that you have to communicate with people on these sites so that you can have good relationship with them and later on you can get work from them and also you become able to sale your products.
