Social Media Sites, Useful Lists For Marketing or Promotion

So you want to do marketing or promotion on social media or web 2.0 sites.

Call it social media marketing or web2 marketing the reality is that it’s all about people power. You want people to visit your website and nothing is a better recommendation than word of mouth.

Social media sites are springing up everywhere and it’s hard to get a grip on which ones we need to get involved with to make a success of our marketing or promotion efforts. Here I’ve put together a list of social marketing sites which I’ve come across which may help.

The list is broken down into video networking, social networking, social bookmarking, feeds and a few others. Enjoy.

Video Networking Sites

Social Networking Sites

Social Bookmarking Sites:

Feeds Sites:

Content Rating Sites:

This is by no means a comprehensive list of every site out there but it should get you started. If you need to really spread your net wings you’ll find a huge list of social sites from Joe Whyte here and some useful statistics on video marketing which is well worth a read. He opened my eyes wider 🙂

And if you are wondering which social media or web 2.0 sites to target then Neil Patel has put together a useful 5 step outline on selecting the right social site that will help no end.

The bottom line is that it all takes time and effort but if you get it right it will pay dividends.

As always if you don’t have the time I can do your research for you.

Hello! Very useful list, even if I think the more interesting aspect and challenging discussion is about the target of social media sites... From this point of view Hictu has added last week a set of "channels" which help users in find people with same interests... from microblogging to social network, in my view. So take another look at and provide us some feedback! Best Regards, Giacomo Vacca
