What is social marketing? If you weren’t reading this on a computer, then it might mean marketing to your friends, or social connections, but online, social marketing means selling a product via social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Some of the other sites included in the definition of social marketing might include: StumbleUpon, You Tube, Linked In, MySpace, Digg, and many others, although some of these are also called social bookmarking sites.
The reason why people want to reach customers on social sites is to appear more user friendly, as when people are in a place where they feel comfortable talking to their friends, they may maintain the same feeling of trust when looking at a site shared by a friend, or in an ad that appears next to their news feed.
How Does Social Marketing Work?
It’s relatively simple, you either need lots of friends and followers on sites like Facebook and Twitter, or you need to pay for the right to have access to those people while they are doing their social networking.
Facebook Ads is pretty expensive, and Twitter doesn’t even have an advertising space available next to the feed, so you either need to learn how to get access to thousands of people by making friends with them, or you need to pay for social marketing.
Here at Professional Social Promotion, we offer a range of affordable social promotion solutions. We can get you Facebook page likes, set up scheduled tweeting to our thousands of followers, make a You Tube video and promote it, or provide help with setting up an advertising campaign.
All of these services are available on the home page, but before you order something, you should probably get in contact with me first, to talk about your site, and the best social marketing strategy for it.
If you don’t have the money to pay for social marketing, then you can learn how to do it yourself, by signing up to the newsletter, where you get sent out a comprehensive free internet marketing training course.
