Social Marketing

Why have a Facebook or Twitter page?

The answer is really quite simple, you want to drive your message and your brand as far out as you possibly can. As in traditional marketing, the more people see your brand or image, the more they will recognize it and the more top of mind it is likely to be. There are many different social networks out there but some have held true since they have started and evolved. Utilize the power of social marketing.

Facebook

Did you know that Facebook is expected to reach 1 billion users in 2012? Facebook is popular with all age groups. Your Facebook pages appear in Google searches. You can engage your customers easily using Facebook. The average Facebook user has 135 friends, when they click on something, their friends see it too.

It is an extension of your existing website and helps to get your message out to more people easier.

Twitter

Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as “tweets“. It’s an easy way to tell your friends (followers) what you are doing and where you are doing it. You can mention other Twitter users by including an @ symbol before their name. It notifies that user. # hashtags allow you to start a conversation about anything. You can read more about hashtags in Twitter here.
