Most of these social media platforms have their own built-in data analytics tools, which enable companies to track the progress, success, and engagement of ad campaigns. Companies address a range of stakeholders through social media marketing including current and potential customers, current and potential employees, journalists, bloggers, and the general public. On a strategic level, social media marketing includes the management of the implementation of a marketing campaign, governance, setting the scope (e.g. more active or passive use) and the establishment of a firm’s desired social media “culture” and “tone”. Twitter Twitter allows companies to promote their products in short messages known as tweets limited to 140 characters which appear on followers’ Home timelines. Tweets can contain text, Hashtag, photo, video, Animated GIF, Emoji, or links to the product’s website and other social media profiles, etc. Twitter is also used by companies to provide customer service. Some companies make support available 24/7 and answer promptly, thus improving brand loyalty and appreciation.

They allow a product to provide videos, photos, and longer descriptions, and testimonials as other followers can comment on the product pages for others to see. Facebook can link back to the product’s Twitter page as well as send out event reminders. As of May 2015, 93% of businesses marketers use Facebook to promote their brand. A study from 2011 attributed 84% of “engagement” or clicks to Likes that link back to Facebook advertising. By 2014, Facebook had restricted the content published from businesses’ and brands’ pages.

Reid Hoffman: Social Networking in Business
Social networking is something that would sound alien if this was mentioned 20 years ago. Billions of people use these means to connect with friends and families as well as those other who has the same interests as they do. This is also a good way to promote businesses. Companies who does not join the bandwagon as well as incorporate with social networking sites will do not have the same advantages compared to those who use them.
The reason why social networking is extremely successful is because of three reasons. First, one can market and reach out to people 24/7. For personal use, even if the person you want to contact is halfway across the world, you are able to do it since they operate the entire day. And if you are doing business, you will be able to market your services, products or ideas even if you are in your bed sleeping.
Advertising is the greatest advantage a business can get from social networks. As long as you are providing absolutely remarkable business with your customers, you will get their continuous support. They will be the one to promote your business as they talk about it even if you are not online. That is the amazing fact about it. Companies should never ignore social networking even if it is a new technique in marketing. Just imagine the number of people you can get hold of in a matter of seconds. They may not all become a customer but everyone is a potential buyer.
The second reason why social networking is successful is because of its being interactive. It used to be when businesses promote their product through TV ads or print ads. This does not allow customers to respond and share their opinion on how they feel about the product. Allowing them to do so will give companies a chance to improve their products if their customers say something about it. Some may even just compliment them and say something about their product being effective and useful. The important part is that they are given a chance to speak out.
Lastly, social networking sites allow you to spread the word costing you the lowest amount there is. Often times it even costs none. Without having to supervise people to entertain customers, interacting with them and promoting your products for free can all be done through any social networking site.
What matters most is for you to be able to get as much people to interact with. If you are not familiar with how it works, you can visit established social networking sites and see how it works. Although, there are new sites that are starting to get noticed and is growing in numbers each day. This would be the perfect place to start so you can grow with the group. You just need to create a great relationship with them and they will be the one to tell about you on all those people they meet on the network.

How to Build Your Social Media Following – Cardone Zone
Internet marketing is not a new concept; in fact, it’s been around for quite some time. For as long as internet marketing has been around, there are always people looking for new ways to turn a successful marketing strategy into cold, hard cash. The premise is simple: Develop a product, find a way to market the product, persuade people into buying the product, and in the process, persuade a few people into selling the product as well. After that, you get a cut of each sale they make. It’s a tried and true method for building an MLM network that works nearly every time.
It’s one thing to build an MLM network, but it takes something different in order to grow and maintain the network. As a marketer, you want to find dependable people to place in your downline, because these are the people that will make the most money for you down the road. Dependable, motivated people who are eager and enthusiastic about the product will also be the most willing to help move the product by selling it to other customers and recruiting people into their downline. All this means is more residual income for you and the chance for your subordinates to build their own network.
A well-built, efficient MLM network has someone at the top level, but unless it’s actually you, you may never find out who. A network that works for you is a network has a mixture of veterans, and below them are those either you or someone in your network has decided to add them to their network. This is the strength of an MLM network. As long as you continue to maintain your network, there is no reason why your contacts can’t continue to make you money, period. However, the smart marketer will continue to recruit people from around the world, solidifying his network.
If your MLM network isn’t growing, or isn’t growing as fast as you’d like, you’re not alone. Building the grand-scale networks with the type of recruits and associates involved after only a few week’s time is unreasonable; however, there are several practical ways you can build your network and the become a bit more reasonable and realistic. It’s important to be realistic with your goals in MLM, because there will be times when your income grows slower; however, with aggressive marketing and recruiting, you’ll assure yourself of having a fresh supply of associates working for you at all times.
Thoughts on open source social networks, LinuxRocks.Online and Mastodon
Find me at: https://linuxrocks.online/@ChrisWere https://LinuxRocks.online is a community-driven instance for people who love linux. The Linux Rocks instance is dedicated to Linux and technologies. Check out https://JoinMastodon.org “Mastodon is a federated social network, with similar features to Twitter, but administrated as a decentralized federation of servers running open source software. Users belong to a single Mastodon server, known as an “instance”, where they post short messages for others to read, subject to the privacy settings of the user and instance. The service seeks to distinguish itself from Twitter through its orientation towards small communities and community-based, rather than top-down, moderation. Like Twitter, Mastodon supports direct, private messages between users, but unlike “tweets” posted on Twitter, Mastodon “toots” can be private to the user, private to the user’s followers, public on a specific instance, or public across a network of instances. The network of federated Mastodon instances forms one part of the Fediverse, a federated network that includes servers running any social network software that uses OStatus.” From Mastodon Social Wikipedia page.
