The answer is “YES”. The question is, “Can I afford NOT to use Social Media?”
When money is tight getting your message out and raising your profile is a financial issue.
You’re looking for ways to achieve as much with less. Obviously, you shouldn’t have one strand of marketing but you need to make sure that you maximize your investment.
You need Mail-shots, e-mail marketing, advertising and telemarketing because they each have a specific role within each campaign. However, you can now start to use these tools far more strategically with a much tighter focus if you add in Social Media Marketing.
Social Media added to your marketing mix will get your name and message out to an increasing number of people regularly throughout every day of the year. You will raise your business profile, promote your service/product and drive more traffic to your website and the best bit is – it’s FREE.
You can inter-weave your marketing strands, drawing attention to your marketing campaigns and thereby make each much more effective.
As people naturally interact within the Social Media platforms you will develop relationships and, as you know, people will recommend and buy from people they know and trust.
If you can afford half an hour every day you can add this marketing tool to your existing strategy.
However, if you haven’t got the time there are companies, like us, who will give you a basic understanding of Social Media, manage your daily broadcasts for you and teach you how to Re-tweet and inter-react with people and develop your relationships.
Social Media Marketing does work and can and will work for you. However, you must remember that just like meeting and developing friendships in the real world so developing relationships within Social Media will take time. You will have to be prepared to have daily inputs for up to six months before you start to see any returns over and above your existing marketing strategy.
So, if you want to generate more and more business opportunities, over the next months and years, you need to embrace Social Media Marketing. It is here to stay. It is the most valuable new marketing tool to have been presented to business since the Internet and all it costs is your time.
Social Media is a marketing force that you should ignore at your peril.
