Social Media is the latest in building brand awareness, interaction with your customer base, as well as increasing the visibility of your company. Search Engine Land defines Social Media Marketing as the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites. Social media itself is a catch-all term for sites that allow their users to perform different social updates.
From the "micro-blogging" of twitter, to the "status updates" from Facebook, to the gaining of knowledge from lesser known Social Media sites such as Quora, all of these work to help build brand awareness and permit open communications with your customers and potential customers.
Social Media only works if you are actively using the Social Media Sites you are signed up with, and not all Social Media sites are going to be right for your business or clientele. Our dedicated Social Media consultants will work with you to develop the right Social Media implementation for your business.
Social Media Marketing speaks to people directly. Facebook has more than 700 million users. Twitter has more than 500 million users. These are, of course, the two most used social networks in the world. However, the beauty of Social Media Marketing is that there are many social networks and there will, almost certainly, be one that speaks to your target demographic. Reaching those people takes time. Building a fan base requires nurturing those people to become advocates of your business. This can take a significant amount of time and can be a drain on your business resources.
