Gilford, NH, April 27, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In an industry as fluid and unpredictable as the social media realm, it's good to count on reliable resources for understanding this ever-evolving field.
Last week saw the release of the 2010 Social Media Marketing Industry Report by Michael A. Stelzner, founder of SocialMediaExaminer.com. New Hampshire-based social marketing & success strategies firm Epiphanies, Inc. enthusiastically endorses this 2nd annual survey of nearly 1900 marketing professionals and small business owners.
Lani and Allen Voivod, the firm’s co-owners, are strongly recommending it to clients, partners, and the thousands of connections they’ve nurtured via their own social media channels, including their “A-Ha!” Blog and Facebook Page.
"Mike and his team have done a terrific job putting this information together for marketers, entrepreneurs, and anyone with a vested interest in the success of a business, brand, or non-profit organization," says Lani Voivod. "You get an invaluable, user-friendly glimpse into the attention being paid to these platforms, and where the power and focus are being applied to get more exposure, traffic, partnerships, and measurable results."
The 33-page report can be downloaded for free at http://bit.ly/AhaSMMReport10, shared easily with your Twitter Followers, and tracked with the Twitter hashtag #smreport.
"A year ago, businesses were uncertain about social media. Now it's here to stay and companies are rapidly adopting social media marketing," says Stelzner, whose popular online magazine is ranked one of the top 100 business blogs by Technorati.com. "Much like email and websites first empowered businesses, social media is the next marketing wave."
The Voivods agree these tools and platforms are here to stay, and are grateful for the time and effort Stelzner invested in publishing the insight-rich Report.
"For all the conflicting miasma of plasma around Twitter, the Report revealed it’s among the top three platforms most professionals want to know about, regardless of how long they've been active on social media," notes Allen Voivod. “But the most important take away from the Report is how crucial it is to ditch the excuses and take action in this arena.”
“Make it as easy on yourself as possible,” he adds. “Whether that means re-jiggering internal resources, accelerating your learning curve through structured training programs and educational events, or with confident outsourcing. Just get in the game. Your future success truly depends on it.”
