Social Media – The New Marketing
John Borkowski, February 23, 2011
We keep hearing about Social Media. Chances are, at least twice today you’ve heard “. . . social media . . .” from either a co-worker or the deliveryman that brought lunch. Not only are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube used every day by just about everyone, they are starting to replace costly marketing campaigns that have forever been used in the past. Businesses are slowly but surely making the switch to more than just tweeting what newspaper they were featured in.
That is where the trend is going. An expert in the field, Michael Stricker, Social Media Strategist for WebiMax, (@radioMS) sees that “it's the finger on the pulse of what consumers and individuals are thinking, RIGHT NOW!” Companies that are starting to pay closer attention to this are enjoying the benefits.
Think about this for example. Your company launches a new product. For FREE, your marketing staff can post online about the new product so the company doesn’t have to invest as much money into promotions of mass mailings and print advertisements. That does sound much better doesn’t it?
If you’re new to Social Media, consider consulting an SEO company that can individually build a plan that fits both you and your company. There are many internet marketing companies that specialize in this field, but only WebiMax can say that they have been rated #1 in the nation by TopSeos.com. Social Media is the new landscape and companies that are looking to cut down on their advertising budgets should consider hoping on board!
