•Social Networking / Marketing
Marketing and advertising is the key to any small business success. This began with direct selling, evolved into advertisements with flyers, posters, then emails, websites, and now electronic ads on social networking sites. Targeting the appropriate customers is the best way to anticipate and meet the needs of those customers. Social networking sites include LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. These sites each offer options for small businesses to create profiles and pages, wherein they are able to advertise their products and services. Offering new applications which quantify the likes and dislikes of individuals, users of Facebook can now join “groups” which support small businesses or can “become fans of…” these small businesses, adding to their advertising.
Seems pretty obvious this one but as more people join the world’s biggest social network the traffic that it sends to site will only continue to increase. This time last year we got nowhere as much traffic from Facebook as we do today but you only have to look at the graph below to understand how our traffic would increase in tandem. With over 500 million people on Facebook and the likes increasing, the real time nature of the network improving by the day and users inevitably growing the question you have to ask yourself is just how much traffic will Facebook be sending us next year? 30% 40%?
Twitter in business has proven to be very successful, with many good case studies. Comcast and Zappos both use Twitter to interact with clients, address complaints or comments broadcasted over the Twitter network. With Twitter the public can actually see the interaction taking place, which I think bolsters both sides. Because it is a public setting, customers complaints and comments carry more weight, and companies have more incentive to take notice of these individuals.
