Are you running a local establishment or maybe an online business? I am pretty certain that you have heard of Facebook unless you are still living in the Stone Age. Maybe even heard or have a twitter account. These are some of the popular social media platforms that are being used by companies nowadays to market products and services. But we are not only limited to these. There are also blogs like Tumblr or video sharing such as YouTube and other social mediums that we manage and use to market with. It is a strong marketing tool that has been usually overlooked by companies which makes me wonder why it is so.  They probably do not realize the potential of social media and the ability to market through this medium.

Back in the days we have marketed through word of mouth and we still do up to this day. And this is how Social Media Marketing works. You can say it is word of mouth marketing on steroids and could be as fast as your internet connection. And unlike traditional print media advertisements, interaction takes place with social media marketing. You can receive feedbacks and comments through users replying or commenting on your products or give testimonials to your company services. What’s more is that you are able to post media such as images, videos and content.

As with any marketing you may cause waves or just a tiny ripple. It would depend on how the public or consumers would take them. This makes it better than word of mouth through the wide reach and speed message delivery through the internet. However the message would not be received without skepticism by the target audience. We must respect the intelligence of consumers. Once we understand that we will be able to pattern content that would be open for discussion where we would be able to defend our views and press our points. Through this interaction you may be able to convince users to take a look maybe even patronize your product and most importantly advertise your offerings should they be contented with your services.
