Social media marketing is multi-directional communication: conversations, commentary, video and other media, with countless numbers of people involved, going on 24/7
Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2009
Everyone seems to be Twittering, Facebooking, and blogging--but few businesses know how to use these powerful social tools for marketing, according to Matthew Arndt, founder of Turbo Social Media, a Pleasanton-based firm that helps companies understand and use this new marketing protocol to expand their reach and increase revenues.
Recognizing the need for businesses and marketers to adapt to the rapidly evolving realm of social media--blogs, social networking, video sites, content sharing sites and more--Arndt founded Turbo Social Media in 2008 to fill the need for strategic and tactical expertise in this emerging arena. The company provides simple and effective solutions for incorporating social media into the marketing matrix, accelerating and strengthening customer connections and ultimately driving revenue.
Social media marketing is an emerging concept for many companies, so Turbo Social Media educates its clients about the differences and advantages of this new type of marketing.
Traditional marketing is one-way communication: a company to its customers. "Social media marketing is multi-directional communication: conversations, commentary, video and other media, with countless numbers of people involved, going on 24/7," explains Arndt. "The goal of social media marketing is to get people talking about your company and its products and services. It's like turbo-charged word-of-mouth marketing, and if done correctly, it can be a powerful tool to generate demand."
The staff at Turbo Social Media is fluent in the spectrum of Internet technologies and Internet marketing strategies. Services include strategic planning, blog platform design and development, Search Engine Optimization, analytics, content creation (blogs, articles, video, audio) and publishing and syndication across the vast social Web including:
- Search engines

"We're helping companies launch social media marketing strategies hands-on," emphasizes Arndt. "We don't just tell clients what they should do, we help them do it."
