7 Social Media Sites to use in your Internet Marketing

Social media marketing has revolutionised online promotion, and provided a whole new channel to...
  • Promote your product or service
  • Provide customer service
  • Bring people to your web site
There are literally hundreds of social media sites, but today I want to reveal the 7 that you should start using immediately (if you aren't already).

While each has its individual advantages, we marketers are generally interested in the people they attract. And these 7 sites attract an enormous number of people. The 7 sites are...
  1. You Tube - upload and share video content
  2. Twitter - see this awesome Twitter marketing strategy
  3. Facebook - excellent online marketing resource that uses Facebook
  4. Flickr - the #1 photo sharing site
  5. Technorati - the search engine for blogs
  6. Stumble Upon - share your favourite web pages with the world
  7. Delicious - my favourite social bookmarking site
So how can you use these social media sites for marketing? Here are 50 ways you can use social media to support your Internet marketing efforts.

And finally, here's a free bonus social media site - Squidoo. This brilliant resource makes it easy to create engaging and informative web page in minutes.
