Social Media Marketing—What is it?
Social media marketing is a series of marketing and promotion activities that utilize online social media and social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Blogs to promote your brand, ideas, products and services. Social media marketing inserts you and your business into established networks of people with whom you may have direct or indirect relationships.
Social Media Marketing Effectiveness
Social Media Marketing can be very effective if done properly. Even a modest social media marketing program can drive great benefits in the area of SEO. While the driving principal behind Social Media Marketing is the notion that people, all things considered, like to buy or do business with people they know. As a practical matter, this is not a primary reason to invest in social media marketing because there is little evidence to suggest that conventional relationship effects apply in the online world. The real benefit of social media marketing is that it expands your addressable audience by and opens up valuable connections:
- Targets like-minded audiences with similar interests
- Increases awareness of your business
- Builds your reputation and authority as an expert
- Creates valuable back-linking to your site, which increases your web site’s ranking
- Expands your presence beyond local markets
- Provides feedback and ideas
- Opens up business to business relationships with new suppliers, distributors and partners
Social Media Marketing Services — Our Approach
We understand that for most businesses, especially small and medium sized businesses, there is limited time for social media marketing. Our social media marketing services are designed to help limit your time and maximize results. Our approach focuses on three basic elements for success:
Quality — it is better to create good content than a lot of poor content
Consistency — it is better to consistently contribute content than start in a flash and then going silent
Credibility — effective use of social media requires adherence to etiquette. Social media marketing is not about shameless promotion. It is about sharing for promotion.
