Growing a following and attracting inbound links is a long gradual process. Don't lose hope if you don't see immediate results. Quality and consistency of content is the key to any inbound marketing strategy.

Yes,

Creating page on Facebook, and account on twitter and blog is good practice but they don't have any value if no-one visit your page on facebook or no-one follow you on twitter or no-one subscribe your blog feeds.

these all work well If you continue working on it. You should post recent update on facebook, twitter as well as blog.

social media marketing is not a simple way to get traffic by just creating a page on facebook or a post on twitter and a blog. Media marketing has its own method. working on these sites continuously will only make visit to our sites.

Website promotion comes from the mushrooming field of social media, in which people are encouraged to interact with each other, and respond to each other's blog postings and comments.
You should be aware of four types of social media: blogs, social networking sites, social bookmarking sites and forums.
Social media help promote your site by sending direct traffic, producing links to your site, and generating awareness.

Try tying your social media activities into a broader marketing strategy; ie. step back and think: objective - message - target audiences - communication means - budget - actor - schedule - evaluation. Draw this up into a neat table and you will see that social media will appear under "communication means" at several points, but this way, you will be more likely to get the full spectrum of your potential market.

And if you need nice templates for marketing strategies, do a simple google search on the topic - you will find many simple, concise, yet excellent templates.

Social Media Marketing is all about increasing your visitor count with the help of various social media sites and the people who gather on your fanpages, panels or profiles for a general talk about your products and services

I'd say creating those three is the easiest part. What is much more difficult is getting readers, fans and followers...

On the topic of creating social media profiles, it is not just about using Facebook and Twitter, or using as many social networks as possible. Granted, Facebook and Twitter are 2 of the most popular sites with the most traffic, and are safe choices to start with.

However, its important to think about which site will most of your targeted audience use? If you're a ecommerce retailer, Pinterest is a good way to get your products known, repinned and shared. If you're having a B2B business, LinkedIn is a good way to get your product known to business professionals.

Ultimately, social media marketing is more than just "creating" profiles. As what other forummers have mentioned above, you need to plan out an engaging content strategy for them, and not just plainly use it as advertising tools.

Think about different ways of attracting people to like and follow your social media pages. I always try to post at least a little content on these pages first so it doesn't look like you just joined.

The trick is to find engaging content that is related to your business. It is sometimes more difficult than it sounds and can get time consuming very quickly. However, if your followers don't find your information engaging they will most likely not pay attention to your posts.

Creating a facebook page or creating a twitter account or creating a blog is not just enough. After creating accounts in all these social media sites, you should also join the niche circles and communities. Try to add some informative values to that community. Then also it will be effective to have all these thing. Then try to share your site's link in that, but in a natural way.
