Social Media Marketing

What Is Social Media?

There is a lot of hype around social media but from a marketing perspective it is simply another method of communication. The objective of most social media websites is to create a community, or series of communities that have a common interest.

If you want top create a community around your business, or parts of your business, like an affinity scheme for example, social media might be a very useful tool.

If, however, you are looking for a direct and measurable correlation between social media activity and sales you might struggle to justify the commitment needed to maintain it.

 

Social Media Marketing

Using social media as part of a well thought out marketing plan has some very distinct advantages but for it to work you have to create a community. What is the best way to create one?

Interesting Subjects
If the subject matter is only interesting to a few people, you will only attract a few people to your community

Commitment
Creating a community takes time to create and maintain. Two Tweets a month or a monthly updated Facebook page does not constitute commitment

Interactivity
People in your community will communicate with you. You can’t ignore them or take a long time to answer them

Creativity
Don’t be boring or you will quickly lose followers
