Social Media Marketing is one of the most successful tools in Internet Marketing. Not too long ago, Marketer’s considered Social Media “Child’s Play”, with no future presence in the Marketing Industry. Today, over 80% of online use is done through some sort of Social Media. Although Social Media Marketing is successful, it is not easy. It takes a lot of time and management, that is where we come in, having a Social Media Consultant that is well versed in the industry can be a great asset to your business.
Before you plan your Social Media platform you must understand the concept of it. Social Media is best measured as VOI (Value of Investment), not ROI(Return on Investment). If you are looking to strictly make money, then Social Media may not be for you. So what is Social Media all about?
What Social Media Is:
That is the best way that I can describe it to you. Anything and everything that can be said about your business, will be said. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Consider Social Media one big manageable conversation about your business.
Think of Social Media as one big loop; The more time you put into your Social Media networks, the more you will get out of them. Comments are a great way to provide your input on a subject. The most important thing to remember when posting comments to another’s site is to choose your words wisely and always stay positive. Everyone has access to those comments, and you are always representing your company.
Without a doubt, when managed properly, Social Media Marketing has become one of the most effective marketing tools available today. It reaches everyone from your neighbor next door to the guy checking in at Mcdonalds all the way in New York.
What Social Media Is Not:
Social Media is designed to compliment your current Marketing campaign, not replace it. You start with a well designed web site, then build your Social Media platform around it.
In this industry, think quality not quantity! Anyone can create a Social Media platform and “friend” everyone on it, but creating solid relationships is what will turn your “friend” into your client. A small to medium sized group of “high quality” readers/customers will beat thousands of “friends” on any given day.
Once you make the commitment to develop and maintain a Social Media campaign, you must commit to it for the life of your business.
After reading all of this i’m sure your asking yourself, “why would I pay someone to make profiles that I can make myself”. That is a very good question and one I hear quite often.
