It’s vital that companies stay up-to-speed with today’s evolving digital media technologies. This way, they can monitor what customers are saying about their brand online, but more importantly, leverage these new media tools to create and foster positive conversations around their brand.
Social media marketing is the process of promoting your site or business through social media channels and it is a powerful strategy that will get you links, attention and massive amounts of traffic. The growth of social media has impacted the way organisations communicate. Additionally, with the emergence of Web 2.0, the internet provides a set of tools that allow people to build social and business connections, share information and collaborate on projects online.
Anthony Burke, WSI Social Media Strategist, says, “The growing popularity of Social Media indicates that Social Media Marketing is not a phase and is here to stay. In order to stay competitive in today’s fast-changing digital media world, marketers need to determine how they can incorporate Social Media into their marketing mix. Failing to develop a brand presence on the social networks can lead to adverse results, such as negative brand exposure created by their competitors or the general public. In our workshops, we educate companies on how they can integrate the various Social Media Marketing features into their overall marketing plan.”
