Developing a Social Media Marketing Strategy
The explosion in popularity of social networking websites, coupled with the ever-changing ways in which these sites allow their users to interact with your brand, make a tailor-made social media marketing strategy a requirement for any company competing in today's market conditions.
In recent years, social media has completely transformed the way people interact with the online world, as more people than ever before sign up to social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Taking Facebook as the most notable example of extremely speedy growth, since July 2009 the website has more than doubled its membership to over 500 million worldwide.
Social media marketing - the new word of mouth
We all know that the most powerful marketing tool at any organisation's disposal is word of mouth. When a brand has been recommended by a dependable friend, trusted family member or some other reliable third party brand advocate, the consumer is much more likely to take the recommendation on board and subsequently purchase the brand.
With the rise of social media, there can be no doubt that the word of mouth concept has well and truly entered the online arena.
Sites such as Facebook and Twitter have encouraged and continue to encourage people to move their relationships online - and it's difficult to overstate the power of Facebook and Twitter marketing.
Consequently, by way of the Internet, friends and relatives are interacting more frequently than they ever did before in the physical world and this seismic shift in social dynamics means that, every day, millions of people are recommending brands to one another online.
The powerful techniques that we employ in our social media marketing strategies can help your company capitalise on this influential level of brand advocacy.
