    On the other hand, there are some myths and misconceptions regarding social marketing. Some companies feel that this kind of marketing will not last for long time. Well, let us analyze the myths and challenges behind social marketing in this article. Are you planning to use Twitter or Facebook for social marketing? Read the following blog before starting your social media campaign.

    Social media is free: There are several tools in YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest and other networking sites where you can use for free of cost. But it is necessary to use the tools in the right manner. You need to develop and publish contents according to the target consumer, location, and brand. When you wish to use the tools for a complete marketing campaign, then you need to use your skill, time, and money.

    Quick results: Yes! It happens sometimes. But remember social marketing works great if you are highly active and already created a brand name. We cannot guarantee for overnight results or sensation. For instance, the tweets can alert and inform your audience about your service or product. But it has chances to take some time for the website visitors to transform as customers to your business.

    Focus on all the big sites: Some marketers will have an account on all the social media pages but fail to remain active. It is cool to have an account, but you need to focus on bringing customers and converting visitors to consumers.
