HOW TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING IN THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY
With the advent of the digital age, social media has emerged as a huge platform for online businesses across the world. From multinational companies like Microsoft, Apple, Amazon to small locally owned businesses and start-ups, everyone around the corner is using social media as a platform to identify their target audience and reach potential customers. A well-planned strategy of social media can expand businesses by improving credibility, strengthening customer relationships and most importantly, brand building. With no geographical boundaries between the consumer and the businessmen, social media has become the meeting point of today’s internet savvy space. Without any third party intervention, social media provides a direct access to clients and opens possibilities beyond imagination. It is the only media which is cost friendly for advertising and has the potential to target relevant customers.
To note a few facts, the surveys according to Hubspot shows that 90% of the marketers claimed that social media marketing was significant for their business; but according to Social Media Examiner, 85% of participants were clueless about the social media tools to be used for marketing. So although social media has made its place in the marketing world as one of the most effective mediums of marketing, most entrepreneurs are still not sure about how to use this medium to the fullest to produce desired results.
