PURCHASE, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 26, 2008
In support of the announcement, Giles Communications has forged a strategic partnership with Sway (http://www.swayonline.com), a leading social marketing firm based in Middleton, Wisconsin.
Social Media Marketing is a powerful, rapidly evolving Internet marketing discipline that involves the integration of technology, text and images to dynamically interact with the burgeoning number of social networks (Facebook, YouTube, etc.), social applications (Digg, Flickr, etc.) and virtual worlds (Second World). When Social Media Marketing is executed properly, marketing organizations can effectively reach sizable groups of like-minded individuals with highly-targeted messages, to better achieve their branding and marketing communication objectives.
"Everyone involved in online marketing is excited about the potential of Web 2.0 and social media marketing, but the truth is, many of the most popular tools available, such as banner ads and sponsored text links have little or no effect on a company's bottom-line branding or sales," say Peter Giles, president of Giles Communications. "Working side-by-side with Sway, not only can we offer clients a means to create, distribute and track online campaigns in real-time, but also a way to target, reach and engage large pockets of customers on the basis of social interest, and with precision accuracy."
"Web 2.0 has catapulted the online experience into a new era, and Sway specializes in creating social media marketing campaigns that capitalize on the innovations of Web 2.0," says Jason Weaver, CEO of Sway. "Our partnership with Giles Communications is important, in that it connects us with a company that has earned an enviable reputation with national and international clients through consistent, bottom-line results and innovative campaigns for more than two decades."
