12 Social Media Marketing Myths from Mohammad Daniyal's blog

For brands, resistance to social media is futile. Millions of people create content for the social Web on a daily basis. Your customers have been using it for a long time. Your competitors have embraced it. If your business isn't putting itself out there, it should be.


But there are some recurring fallacies and misconceptions out there. Many companies are finding that these tools don't live up to the hype, especially small businesses. There are a lot of challenges that aren't immediately apparent. Are you considering Twitter, smm providers , et al as part of your marketing plan? Before you jump in, keep these myths in mind:


Social media is cheap or free. Yes, many social media tools are free to use, including Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, the social network building tool Ning, and content aggregators like StumbleUpon and Digg. There are many free blogging tools, too, like WordPress, Blogger, FriendFeed, and Twitter. But incorporating them into a corporate marketing program requires time, skill, and money.

You can make a big splash really quickly. Sure, sometimes this happens. Social media is great if you're already a star, but there really isn't any such thing as an overnight sensation. For example, tweets can drive traffic to articles, Web sites, Facebook pages, contests, apps, videos, etc. -- this is easier if your audience already cares about your brand or if you have a truly original product or idea that excites people to the extent that they want to share with their friends. But it takes a lot of time and dedication to keep your content fresh.
