    Every business needs social media marketing, along with SEO. The activity you do throughout the social media marketing can indeed bring you quality traffic and web visitors, though it isn't easy. You need to have a website and content that provides user intent and value, otherwise users are going to find it boring and not want to visit.

    Get some social media pages set up for your business, make the images on there look crisp and of great quality, start providing some value, not just on your social media pages, but in other relevant social media groups (Facebook groups and LinkedIn groups work well for this). Start by building the brand up first, providing knowledge and expertise in an area.

    Combine this free organic social media marketing with paid marketing such as AdWords and Facebook advertising - that is of course if you think that it'll provide value to you. You ideally want to pay for this and make more revenue back.

    it mainly depends on your targeted users. For some business Pinterest works well. If you Google, you would find tons of info.

    A Social Media Marketing is a large collection of social networking sites which used to promote your service and products online among the global audience. It is a great platform especially you start your new business and don't have a big budget for marketing or online advertising. It helps drive traffic to your website or blog, makes it easier for others to share with their circle of influence, builds the community around your brand and helps search engines index your social media profiles, social activity, and blog posts more easily. You can get social media service from Google AdWords Ads and Facebook Ads.

    Hello Maqsoon,
    Indeed social media marketing is a way to market your products and services to the new users. It can increase your website visits as well if done properly.
    Use social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Post about your products and engage with customers or visitors who like or reply your posts.
    Use images with text to get more attentions.

    Ya sure, social media marketing for small business is no longer optional. It becomes vital part of it.

    Follow some marketing tips:
    1. Create profiles on multiple platforms - If you are on facebook then create facebook page for your business.
    After you create a Facebook page, you need to determine which other channels are suitable for your business. I’d recommend creating a YouTube channel.
    The video content you upload to YouTube will be easy to repurpose for your other marketing channels.

    2. Define your marketing goals -
    You can’t just blindly start posting content on social media without some reason. Before you do anything else, you need to identify your marketing goals. Some marketing goals 70% user want lead generation, 53% wants to build brand awareness and 50% want to engage customers. First you have to define which goal you want to achieve.

    3. Post content on a daily basis - Now that you have a social media profile on multiple platforms, you’ve got to make sure those accounts are active. If someone go through one of your pages and the most recent post was from two or three weeks ago, they aren’t going to follow you. You need to post new content that will appear on their homepages and timelines.

    4. Give user a reason to follow you - you need to have lots of followers. Otherwise, nobody is going to see your content. Some of the top reasons why people would be interested in following your small business on social media:

    • they’re curious about your products or services
    • you offer exclusive promotions
    • your content is entertaining
    • they need to reach a customer service representative
    • you offered an incentive
    • their friends or family follow your brand

    Social media is a fantastic marketing tool for businesses of all sizes! It has the ability to not only drive traffic to your website but increase your brand awareness and relationships with your customers. When choosing the best social media platform for you it largely depends on your business/product.

    Twitter is great to network and having conversations with your customers

    Instagram is perfect for your visual content but bear in mind you can't add direct links within posts until you're over 10k followers. If you want to get people to see your website direct them to your link in your bio and add your logo to your images.

    Facebook is another great network and one for all ages.

    Google+ is trusted by Google so for your SEO ranking, this is fantastic.

    As well as social media definitely explore SEO development as this can naturally increase your websites search ranking and subsequently its traffic.

    I suggest firstly figure out your target customers.

    If you are in B2B business, LinkedIn and Facebook Page can help you to reach potential clients.
    While for B2C business, I think YouTube and Instagram would be useful.

    For social media marketing, the content you post is important.
    Quality * quantity= nice feedback.
    That's what I need to work hard on too. :)

    Good luck and get started!
