Social Media Marketing

What is Social Media?

The definition of social media is the use of websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. This is something as simple as asking for your comments or as complex as recommending movies to you based on the ratings of other people that share similar interests.

Do I Use Social Media?

If you spend any amount of time online the answer is most likely, yes, you do use social media. Here are some examples of social media websites:

Social News - ( Digg, Propeller, Reddit) Interact by voting for articles and commenting on them.
Social Networking - ( Facebook, Hi5, Last.FM) Interact by adding friends, commenting on profiles, joining groups and having discussions.
Social Photo and Video Sharing - ( YouTube, Flickr) Interact by sharing photos or videos and commenting on user submissions.

Is social media right for my business or charity?

One of the most common questions we are asked is how social media can be used to help promote a business, event or charity. Keep in mind that social media is just that, social. It is about conversations, connecting with an audience, community and building relationships and not just a sales and marketing tool. Remember, a business to business relationship is still person to person. People look for authenticity, honesty, useful, relevant and engaging information. Not only does Social media allow you to hear what people say about you and or your business, but it enables you to respond. By carefully creating a post with professional graphics and relevant information about your business, event or charity social media can do the talking for you.
