Using the Questions Poll tool is a great way to encourage interaction from your Facebook fans. At the moment it is not readily available to all of us but if you watch the video I’ve created, it will show you how to add the ‘questions tool’ to your Profile and all your Fan Pages to use straight away.
Facebook started out as a college re-union social network with games and has evolved into an all-purpose destination that is replacing the otherwise unconnected multiple sites we once had to separately log into to do various tasks such as; emailing, instant messaging, video sharing, gaming, write articles or notes, forums or discussions and blog posts.
If you don’t have content then you don’t have a Social Media Strategy. So how do you get good content? Brad from the Online Marketing Institute shares his insights in this video and I wanted to share it with you because he covers a lot very succinctly.
In short, yes. How Social Media Marketing is used however is different for each business.
If you have a business or thinking about setting up a business then this post will not only help you decide how social media marketing might be able to help you, it will have you thinking about what marketing strategies in general you could be focusing on in your business.
Facebook gets a lot of traffic as it delivers a lot of engaging material but this chart from the Business Insider should leave no doubt in any businesses minds as to whether they should be thinking about whether to bother becoming a part of the Social Media world.
If you’re not interested in using Social Media Marketing directly to increase your customer lists or branding and still only want to use SEO Marketing to increase your website ranking in order to drive traffic to your business you may want to rethink your strategy because when Danny Sullivan in December interviewed the Google Algorithm Team they had to answer many questions surrounding:
“Is Social Media Sites playing a role in a businesses website ranking?”
This led to Matt Cutts creating a video to answer the very same question to clear up the confusion. I’ve added the video for you to watch.
We all have seen the fan comments that have embellished a businesses service or product because they know the owner and they think they’re helping build their friend’s fan base on the businesses Facebook Fan Page….

Most businesses start an online presence with their website and then start the big job of actively advertising online by adding new content regularly to keep it listed in the search engines. Another alternative is to pay for Adwords so that others will find that website. But why spend all that money over and over again trying to gain new customers to a website when you could be duplicating the websites presence all over the internet for free?
Social Networking through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Blogger and other social networking sites is a very cost effective and time efficient way to build awareness and compel potential clients to check out your website too.
It should come as no surprise that Facebook pulls off the most visited website of the year and is all the more reason why businesses need to consider very seriously about how to build into their marketing budget a Social Media plan!!!
