Most business owners have now realized that a social media presence is a must - not a maybe.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
Atlanta creative agency and small business marketing firm, Now What? Studio has announced the launch of a new program designed to help small businesses succeed in the world of social media marketing. “The Social Media Marketing Strategic Action Plan” is an affordable, highly-targeted program that pairs Now What? Studio's Fortune 500 marketers with small business owners and executives who need help entering the social media marketing arena.
There are a great many facts and figures available about the power of social media, but a new video presentation entitled “Social Media Revolution” offers some real food for thought for businesses who are not sure whether or not "getting into" social media is really worth it, and remain unsure if it is a good way to spend their marketing dollars.
The presentation, created by author Erik Qualman contains facts that are accurate as of June 2011 including the following eye-openers:
- Groupon will reach $1 billion in sales faster than any company in history
- Over 37 million people watched the VW Darth Vader Superbowl ad – on YouTube, not on TV
- A Ford Explorer model launch on Facebook attracted more viewers than the Superbowl
- Social gamers will buy more than $6 billion of virtual goods by 2013
- 90% of consumers trust peer recommendations, only 14% trust advertisers
- If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world
What these snippets of information mean is that no one can really afford to stay on the sidelines in this quickly emerging business climate.
“The statistics speak for themselves” says William Colvard, co-founder of Now What? Studio. “Most business owners have now realized that a social media presence is a must - not a maybe. The problem is that social media marketing is unlike any other form of marketing today and many people just do not know where to start. This is why we are offering the “The Social Media Marketing Strategic Action Plan”.
The program – which costs just $249.00 includes a face-to-face meeting with Now What? Studio's social media marketing experts in Atlanta to determine the best social media marketing strategy for each individual company. The Now What? Studio team will then create a step-by-step strategic action plan tailored to the company's specific goals, offerings, and budget. The plan is delivered in a detailed yet no-nonsense, easy-to-understand format. Ongoing advice and hands-on implementation is also available, if desired.
Why would marketers who have successfully worked with Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Heineken, Mrs. Smith's, and Tic Tac want to offer their services at such a discounted rate to small businesses? Now What? Studio co-founder Ken Morris explains “There has been a lot of talk recently about the importance of small business in the rebuilding of the American economy; and how essential their success is to the entire country as a whole. We firmly believe in that idea and want to help support small businesses in our community in whatever way we can”
