Socail media is well known for it's ability to reach massive audiences arond the globe. If you are a marketer this is great news. It is good because where else can you find this kind of free traffic. Now some say social media is just for making friends, and that is true also, because the more friends you have the more likely that these friends will share your posts and help you to promote your ad. Having friends online is great and I am fortunate that most of my Facebook friends are also marketers, so we share stuff between us just like the old boys school of business - which is basically this " If you scratch my back I will scratch your back" people helping other people succeed online.
Now there are lots of social media sites to choose from and some may be more to your liking than others. I am comfortable with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. The last two I usually just post images but I also make sure that my profile has my Facebook and Twitter links as this also helps to grow your friend list. If you understand the best way to use the latter sites you will see your audience grow with new followers. Another great way to gain followers is to write blog posts like this one and post excerpts to Facebook and Twitter with an appropriate image. I use Canva.com to make my images as they have the templates for the social media sites and the creation is only takes a few minutes.
There is a new social media site that is just starting to gain popularity and it's called CashJuice. The site was concieved by owner Darren Merrill of Traffic Ad Bar. It is a social site for affiliate marketers, where we can also share our ads with other members, and we can gain credits by surfing certain traffic exchanges. The traffic exchanges that you can use are Traffic Ad Bar (manditory) and they recommend these three sites as well - Easy Hits 4 U, Traffic Swarm and Traffic Splash.
The more you surf and participate, the more views you will receive to your ads. The site is fairly simple and there is a group to help new members with any questions that they may have. The site is not that complicated to use and Bo Tipton produced a [video]) that is great for new members to easily understand how to get set up.
Just like Facebook and Twitter you can interact with other members by liking their posts, commenting and sharing. Can you earn with this site? Yes, you earn points for all your activities and are paid accordingly for participation. Of course, the larger your downline they more you will earn just like any other site out there.
Those that use the site daily are earning a fair amount of cash. I am new there so, in time it will happen for me as well. I do recommend the site to all affiliate marketers as you can use it for free - and promote one campaign or take an upgrade so that you can post more sites. It's up to you how you use it and incorporate it into your daily regime.
