Marketing on Social Sites

During extensive research, I have gathered that it is beneficial for a writer to utilize social sites. Well, not only writers, but for anyone looking to market. Social sites is a great way of promoting and marketing yourself. Let people know you have something magnificent to offer them. It's also good to first build an excellent reputation with as many people as you can. I mean, people who would actually be interested in you and what you have to offer.

I've discovered, it's not always good for marketing to just add random people on Facebook. You may have a thousands friends, but it's good to allow people to come to you. You can also friend individuals similar to you with a nice, professional message telling why you should connect. I prefer to always say if you wish not to connect, I prefer if you simply ignore my friend request, or politely say you are not interested. Besides making that a constant habit you'll probably get this. . .

When I first signed up for Facebook, I use to do this. Luckily however, the people I have friended coincidentally are interested in the topics I write about.

Or on Twitter turning to the easy route in receiving many followers (if you follow a certain account or retweet something you'll get more followers)  However, some people may have difficulties getting people to acknowledge their existence, especially if you are the Invisible Wolf. While there a lot who has the gift of being naturally capable of connecting and communicating with others, some may have to almost go that extra mile in order to be noticed. Either way, I try to market with different approaches until something is successful (still trying to). 

I have took the time out to sign up for almost every social site available. If you name it, I'm certain I am a member. Of course excluding dating sites, besides, this is merely for the benefit of marketing. It is whether beneficial to sign up for as many sites as you can/may to gain more recognition. Also I have found a few information on how to properly gain notirity on different sites.

It is a very informative article on gaining popularity on Twitter.
