What is Social Media,? Market with Social Media?
Social media is a fast growing and rapidly evolving
marketing platform that is within reach of anyone with internet access. The
rapid increase in customer to customer communication for business drives brand
awareness and if managed well results in, improved customer service. An
important add on is that social media marketing is a relatively inexpensive
platform for businesses to launch marketing campaigns.
Social media marketing is the process of gaining
website traffic or attention through websites and social media sites.
Social media marketing generally requires you to create compelling
content that attracts the attention of customers current and future so that
they will be stimulated to share it with their social networks. This allows
your message to spread quickly from customer to new customer and because it
came from someone who has a relationship with the first person it is considered
or implied that it is trusted.
This form of marketing is viral in many ways, driven by
word-of-mouth, meaning it results in organic marketing rather than more
traditional paid marketing.
Social networking using blogs, Facebook, Twitter,
LinkedIn and websites allows and even encourages communication between
individuals to build relationships and brand awareness.
