Internet Marketing Using the Social Media Strategy
Social media implies that you facilitate a two-way
discussion, rather than a one-way bombardment of marketing messages. In
short, this means that you stay engaged and in a discussion with
Social Media sites come and go like the wind. It seems like every 5
seconds some entrepreneur is just around the corner with another Digg
or del.icio.us knockoff.
Hoping that whatever maneuver they can bring to the table will make
them this week's hot topic or at least clever enough to catch the eye
of whomever might have some money and want to absorb some wicked bit of
code or an entire social media community.
Social media (or new media) involves a LOT of things, a lot of tech,
and could need a lot of resources (not necessarily money). When you say
you do social media, and you want to launch a network of some sort,
does that mean the entire process is done in-house?
Social media marketing can bring traffic and links to any website. Too
often, marketers overlook the value of social media and tend to stick
with traditional methods, while the younger generation of webpreneurs
has employed social sites as an every-day strategy.
Social media is gowing at a such a rate that domains, websites and
blogsites will increase in value due to the increased demand for
webspace. The social aspect is driving the net into new territory and
expands exponentially because of its viral nature.
Social media - as understood in a Web 2.0 context and has enabled us to
play more effectively than was practical previously, on a global field.
Social Media has released us, freed us: and we won't go back. Social
media has been a great resource for both ideas and traffic for my blog.
If you work and get noticed in social media and it gets passed around
that's a great way to promote your work.
Social media seek's (in theory and in word, at least) a different kind
of influence: peer review and approval. The medium and the form of
discourse that it supports are wide open.
Social Media is a Branding Exercise - while social media sites can send
you a lot of traffic very very quickly they can also be excellent
places to do branding. Every time a reader or potential reader comes
across you on a social media site the more you reinforce your brand.
Social media marketing is actually becoming necessary but it has to be
done right. It is about the weight of numbers and it will bring some
honesty, ethics and accountability back to doing business.
Social Media is conversational media in all its interactive forms
including text, video and spoken words - whether face to face, over the
Internet, over the airwaves or via mobile technologies such as iPods
and cell phones.
A Social Media Club is intended to be a place where amateurs and
professionals can come together to learn from one another, to
understand each other and to work together on the things that make
meaning in their lives - their personal passions, their professional
endeavours and their noble pursuits.
Social Media, doesn't even really exist as a subset of media.
Everything is social now, we just expect it. Social media companies
will race to provide metrics that show impressive results, but that's
not necessarily a good thing, especially given the ways measurement may
shape investment and in turn shape the evolution of social mediums.
Social media campaign's go far beyond the traditional agency model of
media planning and buying. So do advertisers they actually get into the
game and get their campaign's out there.
Social media is changing the way online businesses advertise because
control of the message is shifting to the consumer.
Social Media Optimization (SMO) is a new term that was recently coined
by Rohit Bhargava and has since been taking on life of its own. SMO
tactics can drive huge amounts of people to a website and can also
determine whether a startup, website or idea will make it or not.
Social media will be the optimal place to market especially with a
recession. Social networks are a rich source of HIGHLY niche audiences
and therefore are highly target-able.
