Everyone seems to have jumped on the social marketing bandwagon. Everyone has a twitter account, is on MySpace, and has a Facebook page. After all, these days, that's how to get the attention of potential customers. Isn't it?

Online sites from forums and social networks through blogs and microblogs to bookmarking sites and link directories are indeed the latest great thing. However, just blanketing these sites with a lot of advertisements and press releases isn't going to help your sales. In fact, it might actually hurt them.

Social Media Marketing is one of the best social marketing books I've read. It's main message, yes social media is a great tool but it has to be used properly. Most people are following the same old strategies not realizing that social media isn't an opportunity to bombard people with advertisements. These are places where you can connect with people who use your products and find out what they like and hate about everything from your brand to the way your customer service treats people when there is a problem. Social media isn't so much about talking but about listening.
