Facebook Twitter Social Media Marketing
You may be familiar with the terms SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) but 5150 Studios is going to throw another acronym into the mix, SMM (Social Media Marketing). This relatively new marketing concept is driving small businesses into higher competitive markets in America and its about to boom in Australia.
SMM is designed to utilise the large user bases of social media networks including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube Video Marketing. Businesses are using these services to target specific audiences and promote their products or services to visitors in an exciting, collaborative and unique way.
As good as it is having your website rank highly in the main search engines, your business needs to develop its edge by relating back to its customers and clients by reaching out through these social networks. Sharing an inside look into your business is a great way to knock down those barriers that currently exist.
“Wall Posts, Tweets, Views and what it means for your business…”
By sharing deals, promotions and specials to your audience you are offering a unique selling point, something special that your customers will use to remember you instead of the competition. Sharing your latest news in the form of a blog, wall post, tweet or video message is also a great way to build up your back links from people sharing your news from other websites. The possibilities are endless and its easy to see why Social Media Marketing is being described as the next level of online marketing.
Facebook is currently the leader in social networking and is undeniably a driving force for promoting your business or brand online with statistics including:
- More than 500 million active users
- Average users has over 130 friends
- Average user creates & shares 90 pieces of content every month
- About 70% of Facebook active users live outside of the USA
- 250 million people engage with Facebook on external websites every month
- Over 2.5 million websites have integrated with Facebook already
- More than 250 million active users access Facebook from their mobile device
- Mobile users are twice as active as non-mobile users
“…the next level of online marketing”
The fastest growing demographic on Facebook are 55-65 year old women which proves almost everyone is using social media to interact with their friends. 60% of Facebook users and 79% of Twitter followers are more likely to recommend those brands since becoming a fan or follower. It’s human nature to take pride in products we own or use and then highly recommend them to our friends & family.
Social media provides an easy and effective method of driving new visitors and customers to your website. The latest boom and popularity in social media needs to be utilized and adapted to your current online marketing campaigns.
