The social media giant Facebook has almost one billion users globally. In the United States it has almost 160 million active users. That is over half the population of the United States!
Twitter has over half a billion active users world wide. Youtube has a billion users every month.
People are agog with social media. So why aren't you using social media to market your business?
The number of possible ways to use facebook for marketing by itself is staggering.
- quiet testimonials
- overt testimonials
- viral video
- the list is endless
Just imagine that for some reason Frank Beamer (VA Tech Football Coach) decided to click "like" on your businesse's facebook page or mention that he liked the work you did on facebook. Do you know how many VA Tech football nuts would like the same page or be influenced about your project? Ok, Coach Beamer is a local icon (and in our Virginia minds a national one) and is probably the best "like" you can get in this part of Virginia.
But, what if the person who liked your page was simply a leader in his local church. Don't you think the other members of the church would be influenced by his "endorsement" of your product or service?
It does not need to be any more complicated than that.
Social Media Marketing requires active participation in the online community. You can do it yourself if you have the time and interest or you can hire me to do it for you. I'm also available for a consult or two on strategy & tactics.
