Here are a few no-fail tips from social media professionals that have managed to launch a few unknowns into stardom.

Having a Twitter account without a website or a Facebook profile associated to it is a mistake that will kill you. If you are a musical artist you must go beyond websites and engage in Youtube and Vimeo. Delivering your essence is key to establishing a fan base. If you are a visual artist consider means such as Pinterest to share your art. Aside from presence across the web you must have continuity and engagement. You need to be around ALL the time. Peaks and valleys of engagement can impact your fan-base growth more than you can ever imagine.
