Social Media Marketing has brought competition to the virtual arena. Nowadays, the world speaks loudly about Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Youtube, and many other Social Media websites or channels.
As a former student I was looking for a part-time job to earn some money. One company contacted me and I did what most people do first nowadays. I Googled the company to see what they were all about and if they were credible. The company’s website had a poor layout and barely had sufficient information. So I tried checking them out on LinkedIn and facebook and failed to find anything that would help me to understand the company’s business.
I would likely have followed the same process if I were a potential customer. Bottom line, Social Media Marketing is way bigger than one might think. It provides a sales opportunity. “If you take into account the number of people that could potentially discuss your company online , along with your products and industry all day, you will find a ton of opportunities to monetize social media” says Techrepublic.
How does Social Media Marketing help your company?
Social Media opens up a huge opportunity for companies to find and attract new customers, although we also need to think “outside the box”. For example, Twitter and Pinterest may work for you as search engines to find what users are interested in and search for. Perhaps, you will have something to offer to fulfil their needs. And then, it’s just a matter of a click. Google and Social Media will help you to find further information. Secondly, through Social Media companies create a base of loyal customers and update them with new products and services. Social Media Marketing helps you to develop a Marketing Strategy not only for occasional marketing campaigns but also to establish a long-term relationship with your customers and be able to talk to them in an interactive or a “social” way.
There is much expert discussion on the role of Social Media Marketing in the overall Marketing Strategy. It’s not just about creating accounts on several Social Media platforms and updating it once in a while; Social Media Marketing requires detailed consideration on how you would like to be presented in the virtual world and gain your customers. It also requires continuous monitoring and interaction.
