Top 10 Social Media Websites

With the proliferation of social media sites like Facebook there importance and influence on ecommerce and overall web traffic has increased.  One thing to keep in mind is that how social media content is being used is still in its infancy.  For those that understand the key aspects of each social media site can take advantage of the traffic social experiences offers.   Before you start dumping content into social media remember people can tell the difference right away from blatant self promotion of your business and real interaction.

Now that you are going to start social media strategies begin with how you are going to measure success.  Social media websites don’t always send direct traffic to your website so success can be more subjective.  Understanding how you are going to measure success will also support your strategy for how you are going to attack your social online profile.
