    Social media traffic is not a Hype its for real , If you have knowledge of how to target user , niche , top tier countries .

    Engagement plays an important role in getting good traffic over your offers which you have placed over social media sites .

    Never ever use more 3 redirection over the URL which you are placing over social media site , otherwise your domain , URL Shortner Link will get Shadow Banned or completely banned from that social media site.

    First target social media site according to your niche and then create a strategy how you are going to target your users.

    Social media can generate a lot of traffic if you are consistent with using it and you are using it properly and not just spamming.

    I have some sites that get a lot of traffic from my social media activities but results will vary depending on many factors.

    Read up on it and give it a try and if you do it right and stick with it I am sure that you will be happy with the end results.

    Social media marketing is the process of gaining website traffic or attention through social media sites. Social media marketing programs usually center on efforts to create content that attracts attention and encourages readers to share it across their social networks.

    When I first started using the social media sites to help get extra traffic I didn't expect much and didn't think it would send a lot of traffic for me but over time it has started to send more and more traffic so I am a believer in it.

    I'm not even that good at it because I am not an expert in social media so I think that I am maybe missing a lot more traffic that I can get after I learn more about it.

    That was something along the lines of what I though about social media myself before using it. I was a little late getting around to realizing it's impact on traffic and marketing.

    I think that many people underestimate the power of social media for traffic.

    I thought it was mostly to talk to friends and things like that. I did not realize that traffic and marketing had benefits through social media use.

    Many people don't realize the value of social media until after they have tried it out properly and have seen what it can do. I was one of those but I am a believer now. :D

    I would agree that social media is very effective, and as effective as it is, some people just tend to abuse it by spamming. Good thing that Facebook now checks for same multiple posts of an account.

    Social media is one of the top ways to get traffic for your website in both paid and free methods. That is why most marketers are using it. I need to improve my skills on using the social media websites but even an amateur like myself is seeing traffic from it's use.

    Many businesses are publishing content as a way to build their audiences and increase traffic to their websites. However, they may not be getting everything they could from each piece of content they create.

    On number 4 how can I tell when my audience is listening?

    On number 2 how do you make your content easily shareable? Does that mean having the social share buttons on your pages?

    I definitely think that social media is great for getting traffic on your website. That is why you see that influencers use different kinds of platforms to promote their content. If you know how to use it, it can be a really powerful tool to catch public!

    Yes, social media is indeed powerful when it comes to driving traffic. We have already heard of how someone became an online celebrity overnight. Actually it's not possible to measure how powerful social media is, but it is clear that it's certainly an influential prospect when it comes to promotions of brands and services. It is possible to have such influence in your line of services or products by promoting yourselves on the social media platforms. But it depends whether people actually like your product, if they talk about it, and spread the words for it. If they do so, then you're sure to enjoy traffics to your sites or blogs without any investment. The social media will do everything for you.

    Well Social media can help you to generate huge traffic especially today that almost everyone has thier own social media account like facebook, Instagram and Twitter and it is a great opportunity to do some social media marketing to promote product or other stuff but still generating huge traffic will be possible if you have a good advertising method and a good quality product base on thier review

    Is social media only good for products or services or will it be good for just simple content marketing for traffic to a blog?
    What if I just want to use it for traffic to a blog? Will it be good for that too or is it better for products and services?

    In general, I think products and services have the most powerful drive on social media. This is probably due in part to the immediacy of what's being offered in the advertising. Someone can see what they want or need, and within a few clicks they can be on their way to order their product or service.

    I think blogs would be more difficult to sell because you'll have to catch their attention and sell them on the idea that the content of your blog is something they want or need. Then you need to keep their attention once they've reached your blog, and hopefully keep them as longtime readers. I think what makes this difficult is the copious number of blogs that are already out there. If your blog is on a unique topic or has an outlook that's different, I'd advertise it that way, that way people know they're going to get something they're not used to out of your posts.

    Social Media gave Ex President Obama the edge in his first term in office as POTUS.His campaign team utterly used the power of Social media to reach lots of people which resulted in votes,So whether for personal campaigns or business campaigns,Social Media will drive traffic massively.
