Social Media Marketing is the process of promoting your website or business through social media channels and it is a powerful strategy that will get you links, attention and massive amounts of traffic.
Social Media Optimization has been defined as the process of refining a website (optimizing it) so that its awareness and content are easily spread through social mediums and online communities by users and visitors of the website.
Social Media Marketing is a great addition to any traditional SEO work that you do, but it’s not a substitute. It’s an excellent way to get people to come to your site to take a look at what you have to offer and it isn’t difficult to implement. It’s fast becoming one of the most effective ways of marketing online.
Social Media Marketing is the new buzzword online, and social media sites are becoming increasingly more popular. It’s a very effective way of attracting links to your site and is very cost effective when compared with paid advertising and other forms of online marketing. And the rewards can be much greater.
Social Media Marketing is a great way to build long term sustainable, natural social media traffic and search engine rankings. Social networking in particular, creates a conversation with your target audience, providing you the opportunity to virally market your website through the chatter that can be created.
Social Media is better than branding and customer service because of the interaction it provides with your customers. It does not provide instant results and it will take some time before you will realize its effectiveness; however, its power lies in its ability to engage the right kind of participants and is about maintaining your brand and your reputation.
Social Media Marketing provides an easy way to build back links but it certainly doesn’t replace making titles unique or setting up a good internal linking structure. Another way to view social marketing is as word of mouth, but at the speed of sound.
Social Media also afford the long-term opportunity for companies to develop and use online networks for providing information their customers find interesting, or amusing, or useful. Social media shouldn’t be about how many people you can engage, but about how engaged can you make those people.
It changes the dynamics of not only marketing but business and Social Media marketing campaigns can include a variety of components and platforms.
It’s important to remember you can’t simply launch a Social Marketing campaign and assume your target audience will find you and engage in a conversation. It takes time and effort to establish a relationship and eventually gain the trust of the target audience.
Social Media can help you achieve results, either directly, by delivering information that leads visitors to your site, or indirectly, if the links provided are found by the search engines and give your pages a boost in regular search engine rankings.
Social Media Marketing isn’t intended as a replacement for traditional marketing and is not the final frontier of marketing, as we know it, but offers many advantages to the Internet Marketer.

This is my new Blog and having been away from it for a couple of years it’s great to be back because I really enjoy it. Just to tell you something about myself, my wife and I are currently working with Autistic adults in the state of Maine and we love it. Although we’re from Canada, originally from Newfoundland, this is our second stint working in Maine and the two men we are working with this time around are great. We’ve become very attached to these young men and we consider ourselves to be a family. Actually our job title is that of Therapeutic Foster Parents and of course we take it very seriously. One of the main reasons we take it so seriously is that we are advocates for these young men because at times they can’t speak for themselves.
The sad part about our job here in Maine is that we have to leave the country after 18 months. The reason for this being the company who hired us and sponsored us into the US could only get us into the country by way of a Training Visa with the main condition being we have to leave after 18 months. We were here under the same circumstances in 2007 and had to leave the guys we were caring for at that time at the end of 2008.
This of course was very difficult for the three men we were working with and living with at the time and it was also very difficult for us because we became very attached and as I mentioned earlier we became a family. One of the main benefits of coming back is that we get to see the guys we worked with on our first visit and we also get to do what we enjoy which is caring for and helping these young men.
Because of our love for what we do and for the people we work with I will be dedicating a Page on this website to Autism and to the people who live with it on a daily basis. I’m hoping this will help educate people who aren’t familiar with what is fast becoming a global concern and help to raise funds for research.
The other objective of this website is to offer Home Business advice and present opportunities to people who are interested in making a legitimate living by working from home.
I’m hoping to have a great deal of relevant content added soon and I hope people will make it a point to visit often. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this information.
The following two videos should give you some idea of the majestic beauty of Newfoundland:
I’ve added a video below, one of which is actually an advertisement by a local brewery located in St. John’s, Newfoundland which is where I’m from. But it contains some great shots of the area and I like to think portrays what we, as Newfoundlanders, are all about: People who care about people, who work hard and play hard but aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves. In the following videos you will see many examples of this outlook on life as portrayed by local entertainers performing at what we call “Kitchen Parties”.
These are events where neighbours come together to have a few drinks and entertain one another through song and dance. Please take the time to have a look.
