With the recent success of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, many people are wondering how they can use these social media sites to market their business. The answer is simple – by creating a presence on all three sites. In this article we will look at each site and discuss how it can be used for marketing your business.


Facebook has over 500 million users worldwide. It is free to join and easy to use. Facebook allows you to post information about your company or yourself. You can also create groups where you can connect with others in your industry. Facebook is a great way to get the word out about your business.


Twitter is another great way to get the word around about your business. Twitter is a microblogging service that allows you to post short messages (called tweets) up to 140 characters long. The posts are limited to only those who follow you. Twitter is similar to a blog but with a twist. People who are interested in what you have to say can follow you and read your tweets.


LinkedIn is a networking site for professionals. LinkedIn allows you to create a profile and add other members as connections. When you create a connection with someone on LinkedIn you have access to their profile. If you are a member of LinkedIn you can view the profiles of other members. LinkedIn allows you to search for professionals in your field. You can then contact them to discuss opportunities or ask questions about your field.

By using all three sites you are increasing your exposure. Each site has different ways to get the word out about you and your business. By creating a presence on all three you are getting the most exposure possible. You can also connect with other businesses and find potential partners.
