Though some forward-thinking businesses are already using Instagram, chances are you aren't yet, and neither are your competitors. With its universal appeal, however, Instagram is not a medium marketers should ignore. And you'd better move quickly if you want to make an impact.

Everyone knows that promoting your business on social media can extend your reach, gain visibility for your brand and build meaningful relationships with your customers.
But more often than not, I hear about businesses who just throw together a Facebook page because that's what everone else is doing, or they sign up for a Twitter account and tweet, "We're on Twitter now!" and never come back to interact and engage with their audience.
Social media can be a strategic marketing tool, if set up and approached properly, and if you combine it with other forms of marketing.
Is social media right for your business? And if so, which networks should you have a presence on? Should you manage your accounts yourself, or is it worth it to hire a social media consultant?
Lets see some sure-fire ways to get set up on social media the right way.

And to bloggers, “successful” means three things:
1. Content Distribution
This is where Triberr began.
Triberr enables bloggers to form tribes and effectively establish a long-term Tear 1 supporter networks.
Since everyone on Triberr is a blogger - and therefore audience builder- each share is worth much more than a share by your average Joe Facebook user. Gross generalization of course, but accurate for our purposes.

The power of social media and social media marketing has become quite popular over the years.
People are obsessed with Web 2.0 properties and social media websites because how easy they are to use and the social interaction. When a site has social interaction involved in it that allows people to comment back and forth which will usually make people keep coming back to the site. It should be used properly and with caution because if you have bad press that goes viral it could ruin your venture or business plan.
