Social media is the key to building trust and loyalty in business in 2012.
San Diego, Ca (PRWEB) January 28, 2012
Marketing with Social Media has become a hot topic in the business world. According to BtoB (Business to Business) Magazine report, 93% of all BtoB marketers are currently using some means of social marketing. The reports are consistent across all media platforms that marketing with social media is on the rise and in high demand. TechCrunch reports that brands are increasingly shifting marketing resources to social marketing.
There is no denying the power of marketing with social media in this day and age but it’s very important to understand exactly why this is such a powerful marketing platform. According to Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Crush It!, “Social media is bringing business back to small town “rules”- even in the biggest of urban communities. Word of mouth is more powerful than ever.” He also stated “brands can now reach customers on a deep personal level that hasn’t really been possible before and the customers will respond…businesses and brands are being humanized.” According to Mia Davies, what social media makes possible for business is to establish a brand identity that engages customers so much that they naturally take action on the brand’s behalf. This is what is happening for business when this approach is done effectively.
Mia points out that most businesses know that social media is where they need to be putting their marketing budget and their marketing efforts but the question is, are they doing it successfully? This is the exact question that led Mia Davies to identifying a formula for marketing with social media that she reports “ is a simple approach that produces more results in less time.” She goes on to say, “one of the biggest problems business owners and entrepreneurs face with social media marketing is that is takes too much time to do it.” According to Mia, marketing with social media does not have to take a lot of time when done correctly. There are so many resources, tools, and systems in place now to make the entire process run on autopilot.” More importantly she points out, “when done correctly the time spent on social media will produce long term ROI.”
