I have been seeing so many people that I know making big mistakes using social media to promote their business. You need to treat social media like a cocktail party and work the room. You cannot just start up a Facebook Fanpage and start spamming people with info and offers from your company. If you went to a cocktail party and immediately started to hard sell everyone in the room when you spoke to them, you would quickly become the least popular guy in the room. When you start using social media and immediately begin pumping your company before you even join the conversation, you are doing the same thing. Guess what? You will quickly become the least popular person in social media if you do that as well.
