  1. Be Selective: While going for social marketing, look for the platforms that help you build your business online.
  2. Assess your time and resources: Write online contents for the audience in the selected social media sites only. It is not mandatory to post content in all these sites. Think prudently and see which one gives more response and post the content in it.
  3. Make full social media profiles: Before embarking on the social media marketing, fill all the information related to your business to develop rapport with the audience and make your profile search engine friendly. Also pitch your case by telling the audience why you are different from others.
  4. Link your social accounts: Make it a point to link to your website, blog and within other social networks. This enables you to become visible to your users from whichever network they choose.
