In my personal experience, Social Marketing does definitely take a focus and a commitment to see appreciable results, but a marketer has to look at the big picture. You have to plan for the future and use every resource at your disposal. Social Marketing has proven to be effective, but it takes time and dedication.

Look at it this way: you need to build a foundation of stability for your Internet business and Social Marketing is one of the building blocks in that foundation. It may not seem to be doing much when it is first put into place in the beginning, but later down the road, once your business structure begins to rise, you will clearly see the purpose and benefit of placing the Social Marketing building block in your base.

The important thing to remember when you are taking steps to get traffic to your website is that 'targeted' traffic has far more value than general traffic. This is also true when trying to get free traffic through social marketing.

When you participate in social networking sites you should start out with a clear picture of exactly who your targeted customer is. Design your posts and your content to appeal to that customer. Remember, you are not trying to 'sell' in those posts or in that content, so make it friendly, informative, helpful.

Your objective, as previously stated, is to present yourself as a knowledgeable source of the kinds of info or resources that your targeted prospects may be looking for. If you can successfully demonstrate that you are the person to go to for these things, then you will be able to get lots of traffic to your website where your sales material can then do its job.

Just to recap a few other points about Social Marketing, the way I see it is if you want to increase your website traffic with free social bookmarking, your goal is threefold:

1) Define Your Target Market: When you join and become active on a social site, know in advance exactly who you are trying to reach and why. Approach social marketing with a purpose and a plan.

2) Become Socially Active on the site: You are trying to build connections and that depends on how social, how consistent and how helpful and supportive you are. If you rarely visit the site, how will the members get to know you, or you them?

3) Use the site to build your brand: Use the content you post, plus links, recommendations, etc., to demonstrate your knowledge, expertise and value as an authority in your niche.

The key to successful social marketing is to be a friendly, helpful contributor, not a promoter. Yes, your ultimate aim is to find paying customers, but it takes finesse and planning to do this with social marketing.

The real power (and focus) of social network marketing comes when people who get to know and appreciate you share your profile link or your web links with others in their networks who they think will also benefit from what you have to say or offer. If their recommendation is strong enough, the people they share it with will in turn pass it along to their networks, and so on.

I've said this before, but your goal should be to give your social contacts the impression that you are a source of information to be bookmarked and shared ... not a "promoter" who should be avoided.

The New Year, 2012, is almost upon us! What are your marketing plans for the New Year? Do you have them mapped out yet?

Social Media marketing continues to be a factor in online business, but at the same time, the nature of Social Media continues to evolve.

Now might be a good time to analyze the Social sites where you are a member in order to determine how they each fit into your plans for 2012.

Of course, Facebook and Twitter remain as the most popular sites. But are they "working" for you? You need to figure that out.

IM faceplate is still in the early stages of popularity, but it is developing nicely. Make sure to include this site in your plans for 2012. Here are three reasons why:

- IM faceplate is much more friendly towards online marketers than many other Social sites currently are;

- IM faceplate encourages you to share your opportunities, resources and recommendations and gives you the ideal platform to do it effectively;

- By it's nature, IM faceplate attracts targeted prospects who will most likely have some interest in what you promote and sell.

Social Marketing must continue to be a priority for every Internet Marketer. IM faceplate SHOULD by a site used by every marketer online.

Hello, IM faceplate Friends:

A question for you:

- Are you having any success marketing on Twitter?

Some people say it works for them. Others say it has lost control and has lost it's value and is and is nothing but a spam site now.

What is YOUR opinion about Twitter?

GT :-)

Lately, my Search Engine traffic has been improving, but I still get good traffic results from Social Marketing sites (like IM faceplate!)

When you are social, people have a better chance to see that you are a real person who responds to questions and comments. It allows you to be more personal and to express your opinions, perspectives and values. If you can relate to your target market and you can let them know about it, you have a better chance of winning some new friends, associates and potential customers.

Social Marketing is more than just following lots of people and getting them to follow you. The real value is in the social interaction that you can engage in.

Recent search engine algorithm changes have made Social Marketing an even more important element of your Internet Marketing branding and traffic strategies.

Many marketers have lost their faith in the dependability of search engines and are looking to balance their efforts in favour of other traffic methods.

Social Marketing makes sense on many levels: you build your presence; enhance your branding; demonstrate your expertise; build relationships; increase your online content; and best of all, attract more traffic!

Many marketers are still struggling for traffic as a result of the search engine updates this year. Social Marketing has become even more vital to those who are determined to pull through and still make a go of making money online.

Here is an informal poll: Are you using Social Marketing MORE, LESS or ABOUT THE SAME as you were six months ago?

(I am using it more.)
