This may include but is not limited to advertising, e- blasts, sales promotion, public relations, blogging, viral and direct marketing.

It’s Worth It

 

Social media serves as a relatively inexpensive platform for organizations to implement innovative and effective, strategic marketing campaigns. Its purpose is to create content that attracts and retains the attention of your intended audience. A corporate message spreads from user to user via word of mouth or social network and presumably resonates because it appears to come from a trusted or third-party source, as opposed to the brand or company itself.

The power of social media marketing and user generated content can make a huge impact. Engaging in conversation with current or potential consumers rather than sales pitching via micro blogging, social media, mobile, and instant messaging. These methods are very effective because you can market to the masses in a matter of seconds. They are much quicker in terms of feedback and response vs. email, television, and direct mail. “Be careful what you post!” Once messages are sent out you can’t take them back.

In Conclusion, Understanding the Impact

Honesty is the best policy; when it comes to creating content about your company’s products and/or services. When delivering messages via email, you should always state why you are writing… without clutter. Always remember to proofread messages before sending them out so that they can be revised in case of any errors. If good content is put out and third parties are aware of your products or services, viral marketing can occur. It can have a positive or negative impact on your company based on how well you treat your customers. Pod casts have replaced the expensive expenses that can occur when typing letter heads. These audio messages can be transcribed and delivered via the social web.
