Some Quick Tips

Both Facebook and Twitter are great tools which can be used to gain traffic for your site with one big stipulation. You should know how to use it!

The following are some quick tips for better performance in social media.

Keep natural: As Twitter and Facebook users are very alert and with it, let things flow naturally.
Talk officially unofficial: Remember to update your readers with topical news but deliver it in language that is interesting and easily understandable.
Keep the salesmanship down: Though networking and community building are the two prime jobs of social media, it is ok to pepper in some relevant service news. You can announce your offers and discounts in a clear concise manner but be tactful in how you do it.
In some cases try A/B testing:  Yes you can do A/B testing. For this you need to create multiple profiles. This will help you to test the various strategies for effectiveness.   If you are posting from a personal profile for a business you can try posting from 2 different names with different styles and see which is more successful. Note: be tactful.
Talk about topics related to your business: No point in talking  about ‘X’ if you’re doing business in ‘Y’.   Simply put – you won't be speaking to the people listening to you and will add followers that may not care about the majority of your posts.
”Follow” and “Become A Fan”:  It depends on what kind of people follow you or become your fans and what kind of information you release. Also build a strong communication pattern with your followers and fans.Facebook-business
Try to expose your links: Where ever possible try to add your links to updates that are important. In the case of Facebook, you have an option — ‘Create a page for my business’ where you can add a special page for your business other than a personal profile. This shows the transition of social media into a business trumpeting vehicle. On  the same line, Twitter has retweeting features and sites like Tweetmeme which allow you to retweet the tweet.
Facebook and Twitter are staple tools for business development and there is no question they are here to stay. Companies that get on board now are similar to the ones that cared about SEO back in 2002 when many companies still didn't know about it.  So what is stopping you?

    Interesting and very useful information. Agreed, both Facebook and Twitter can be your bandwagon for branding your business. Many are using these tools wrongly  just for propagating direct sales message. But really they're getting less attention from the social media communities and circles.  Your post is definitely an eye opener to those actions.
