Remember this is just the basics!
Basic Page Information from Facebook
There are controversies on how much content to share and how to get the most interaction on Facebook, but whatever you decide, be consistent. Be giving and Facebook will be more giving to you, share not only your own links but others that fit your theme or would appeal to the readers you are trying to engage. Ask fun questions about your readers that they will enjoy responding such as- "What are you having for dinner tonight?" or "What is the temperature where you are?". Everyone likes to talk about themselves so give them an opportunity which is a win win for you, because more engagement on your Facebook Page the more Facebook allows your reach to be. You can schedule your day's or months worth of content right on your Facebook page.
Set up a business page or if you currently have a page, you can change it to a business page without losing any of your current followers. Make the name of your page the same as your website/blog if possible. See all the how-to's from the Pinterest Help Center- Set up your business account on Pinterest. Make your profile picture the same as your profile on your blog or website, also have the link to your blog/website in your header.
Create your boards that would be interesting and would appeal to your targeted group, such as food boards if you are a food blogger etc. As with Facebook, there is controversy on how much to share aka "Pin". You don't wish to burn up the airways with nothing but your pins but you need to show you are very active and engaged with Pinterest. So Pin often and Pin content from everyone that might be of interest to your followers and to the readers you are trying to engage.
On your website/blog pin pictures that are are clear and bright, vertical pictures are the best!
Twitter Help Center

This is just the bare bones basics on what I believe are the top 6 social media sites that help promote your website/blog. These are all free but it does take time to promote on each of them. There are ways to link them so what you share on one it will share on the others by using such programs as IFTTT!
Stay informed by connecting with other bloggers in your niche using social media such as Facebook Groups, Twitter Parties, Google+ Hangouts and attend classes, on or off line. Connect with them often!
