understanding of a product when they can literally see it. And, when people
understand your product, they are more likely to purchase it. You do not need to
have too many pictures, just a few should do the job.
Sign up for Twitter. Get as many followers as you can by signing up for
blogging sites like Tweepi.com. Using a site like this makes it easier for

giving readers of that blog a way to find your site or blog. While sticking with
blogs with bigger followings is more likely to generate more traffic for you,
visitors from smaller blogs can add up as well.

posts go into their Google Reader account once your feeds are published. This
makes your content accessible in an easy-to-access way for your customers. Make
the button to subscribe easy to identify, so the whole process takes no effort
on the part of those visiting your site.

profiles at the same time. These linking applications are a huge time saver.

on your Facebook, YouTube, and Google+ profiles, so you don't have to sign into
all of them to post the same content.

social media marketing campaign. Make them available throughout the company so
that everyone within the organization is on the same page. Results from social
media marketing will be more productive and better focused when all activities
are aligned and working towards the same goals.
