Going Social? Go Mobile!

During the 1990’s, the internet can be viewed from today’s perspective as being under construction. Many homes were just becoming familiar with the world wide web and its capabilities. Businesses were in the same place, as they had no clue what this phenomenon would mean to them in the future. In the next decade, the internet started to boom with social media. Myspace was the first mainstream introduction to social networking, and Facebook later took the lead. Twitter, LinkedIn and other websites are now carrying the torch while new social media is being created and launched everyday. Companies now realize how important it is to reach the consumer, and they realize that they can now create a more personal experience by reaching into the customer’s social network and identify with them while also figuring out what the customer wants and needs from the company. This can be considered marketing at an intimate level!

Importance of social media marketing

Any person that is familiar with running a business knows that marketing is essential to the success of the company. It is also often regarded as the most important component of any business strategy. Large companies can easily spend millions of dollars on marketing agencies to promote their products and services. However, smaller companies that would like to cut costs look for more creative methods to make their presence known. When competition is as fierce as it is in today's business markets, social media marketing is an economical way for smaller and newer companies to reach a vast amount of potential customers in a very short time.

What exactly is social media marketing? In terms as simple as the concept, it involves using social media formats such as blogs, social networking community sites, or video sharing networks to market a product or service. Why is social media marketing so effective? Here's why: popular websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Flickr have over five million visitors everyday. Therefore, promoting a business through these portals is attractive to small companies because they have a steady stream of traffic that is virtually constant.

Many small companies take the wrong approach when stepping into the social media marketing arena. This is easy to do because business owners think that by simply creating a Facebook page their profits will shoot through the roof! Guess what? That isn’t necessarily the case. Why?
