Social media is a powerful tool, but cannot stand alone as an internet marketing solution. In fact, social media comes last – you need to discover your voice through blogging and have a key word strategy first. Social media assumes you have content to share or something to say, so consider your overall inbound marketing process before you focus in on your social media marketing strategy.
