Get Social! with Social Networks – Social Media Marketing – Building Your Social Relationships
10 years ago, the big thing in business was to participate in networking events, a group of professionals would get together someplace to make small talk, eat shrimp, and forge connections with each other – connections they’d presumably capitalize on down the road. Well social networking on the internet is based on the same idea, except now you “get together” in front of your computer, iPad or smart phone.
Despite the social nature of social networks, more and more businesses are discovering that these networks are great places to find out what consumers think and thereby capture the “mood” of the market, so to speak.
A Majority of consumers will give there personal reviews and ratings on your goods and services – a few Good reviews can be worth a few dozen ads!, and One Bad review can cripple your Business Drastically!
The Marketing Paradigm has shifted. Nearly all consumers (98%) now use online media when researching products or services. The misconception is that only young people use these technologies but in fact, nearly all of the buying public now use them.
Marketing has also shifted from a one-way broadcast to a multi-point conversation. In the past, communications were “broadcast” exclusively through mass marketing channels like radio, TV and newspapers. With social media, however, much of the communication is controlled by the prospects through services like Facebook which has 1.01 billion members and Twitter which has 307 million monthly active users, and lets not forget about YouTube, which gets 1 Billion Active Users Each Month.
