Social Media Marketing

Social Media Marketing

 

Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining website traffic or attention through social media sites. Social media marketing programs usually center on efforts to create content that attracts attention and encourages readers to share it with their social networks.

 

A corporate message spreads from user to user and presumably resonates because it appears to come from a trusted, third-party source, as opposed to the brand or company itself. Hence, this form of marketing is driven by word-of-mouth, meaning it results in earned media rather than paid media.

 

Social media has become a platform that is easily accessible to anyone with internet access. Increased communication for organizations fosters brand awareness and often, improved customer service. Additionally, social media serves as a relatively inexpensive platform for organizations to implement marketing campaigns. Social networking websites allow individuals to interact with one another and build relationships.

 

Social networking websites and blogs

 

Interaction between one and another is the great benefit of social networking websites. Companies or products can be shared at those sites as well, to connect to individuals. Building relationships this way feels more personal.

 

Social networking sites work like word of mouth. Blogs and sites allow “repost / re-tweet” comments of a product to be reposted and with that, all the users connections will be able to see these messages as well. It reaches many more people, and by repetition it will also create more traffic flow for the products company.

 

Social networking sites can offer another advantage, by the ability to reach a deep and narrow target audience. The personal interaction this way allows for individual followers and potential customers to feel loyalty towards the companies and/or products involved.

 

There are new Semantic Analysis technologies that can be used, with which marketers can detect signals of buying trends, for instance through comments and questions posted in content online by people. This shows what prospective clients like as far as the kinds of products or services. To understand these trends or signals, then in turn aids the sales person/ company to target relevant prospects. It also allows for marketers to run small campaigns targeted to precision.

Blogs

The need and reasons for companies to expand their marketing increases rapidly. Blogs are social media “platforms”, such as “LinkedIn”, which allows for companies and clients to connect via online.

Blogs are promotional techniques or venues to keep customers, acquire followers or subscribers and can be linked to and from Facebook, Twitter and many other networks and blogs. Blogs provide space for longer product descriptions or testimonials, and can be updated frequently.

 

Similarly, the businesses benefit from the online communities, for they enable the businesses to reach clients of other businesses as well, using this platform. Almost anyone can access the online environments and with that are invited to participate in the entire creative process. Another site is created, called Glassdoor, which offers firms to follow their standing in the corporate world, whereby employees can post evaluations of their companies.

 

Some businesses are aware of the disadvantages that involvement in social media networks bring, such as the power that the public has over how their marketing is perceived. Another fact is that some employees dislike such isolated online environments as well as the corporate standards placed on employees while interacting online. Therefore several businesses choose not to engage in social network media along with their traditional methods and avenues of marketing. In order to maintain an advantage over the consumer, businesses are to be aware of information, involvement, community and control that the consumers hold.
