Social media is nothing new but rather our traditional word of mouth marketing, however now it has gone online became much easier, provides access to greater, larger markets and gets very quick responses. Therefore, it certainly is a great way to for any business to sell/promote their products and services, for experienced people to teach about their field easily, their followers to follow those posts and so on.
So, What Is Social Media?
Social Media is a technology that lets people connect with other people from different cities, countries, races, religions, professions and so on to share their opinions regarding anything from personal to general things and where all these views are expressed are called Social Networks. Most of you already are aware of popular social networks and probably use them like Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr and many others. And this whole process of letting other people know about your products/services, attracting and eventually selling them is known as Social Media Marketing (SMM).
Finding Potential Customers on Social Media
Facebook alone has around 1.11 billion users and the numbers keep climbing up every day, even now as you are reading this post. It is evident that these social networks are surely a blessing for businesses that can now easily find their potential customers on these sites and pitch their products to them. Your job is to reach those people who are your potential customers and convey your message appropriately. However, it is important to note that though SMM is quite an effective and powerful way to convey your message, it can also tarnish your reputation if you don’t spread your message properly and use any wrong words that are not appropriate for a certain situation.
Free Targeted Approach
One of the best things regarding SMM is that it’s free and also provides the opportunity to target only those people who are actually somewhat interested in your products and services. This not only saves you time and effort of targeting those people who are not even your potential customers but also makes your online marketing strategy quiet effective. This in result will increase your leads that can eventually convert into sales – the main aim of every other business.
So, until now we have established that Social Media is a very effective way to promote your products and services that is also completely free that gives us the power to spread our message to only those people (targeted approach) who are interested in your company’s products. However, we should also be careful that where social media helps us to build a repute and following for our products/services for free and pretty quickly, it can also damage the reputation in the very same manner if not used properly or any strategy/message has a negative effect.
