Social Marketing... the new way to market on the internet?

The simple answer is Yes. Quickly becoming hot news Social Marketing lends itself to the inception of Web 2.0 and Social Marketing websites which have greatly risen in popularity over the past three years.

Marketing online, increasing traffic to your website, return on investment (ROI), these and many more buzzwords are all associated with one goal in mind making money through exposure online.

Now with the potential numbers of millions of members logging on daily to social networking websites can these portals be overlooked for marketing? NO. Already being taken up by the proactive and leaders in the industry, advertising using social networking websites is now a must!

Get On board the Train.

How to move forward...

So how as a website owner how do you go about setting up your social marketing campaign?

  1. Employ an online Marketing Company like LAS Design.
  2. Do It Yourself.

What is so special about having millions of people logging onto these websites, how will my web site benfit from this?

The answer is simple, the more exposure your website has by advertising on websites like;
MySpace, FaceBook, You Tube, Scribd, Squidoo

The more potential you give yourself for earning money through sales of your products or services.

 

Not all advertising will cost you money, but there is a time factor...

What do i mean by this..? Well not all of the social networking websites are about payment for advertising. Some offer you the facility to post new articles that you can fill with hyperlinks back to your websites. Others offer the ability upload documents and files, for instance upload a video blof of your latest service or products onto you tube, then in the video point out that the services are available from your website. This can help to draw people into your company not only as prospectors but also buyers if you've targetted your market correctly.

 

Social Bookmarking

The same as bookmarking the traditional way, but now online and specifically for your website. Websites like Digg, Reddit and Delicious offer this functionality that allows users of your website to post your website articles on these high traffic websites. It offers your website users interactivity and the ability for people to help promote your website without any input from you, other than writing your articles.

Conclusion...

Social Networking and Social Bookmarking websites should be used in unison as part of your Social Marketing plan, this combined with SEO is sure to pull in those extra few people which you can then try to convert to customers. The idea that social marketing is a fad is also untrue, with a continual rise in popularity and with more and more of us signing up to these websites it goes to show that even if the hype does pass, get on board now and use 2008 and beyond to your social marketing online advantage!
