Not investing in social media strategies – especially on occasions where the target market is youthful, has disposable income and is already highly ‘connected’ – is like throwing money down the drain.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Travel website Orbitz.com says popular travel brands have begun to shift their focus and funding “toward building out their social media presence”. The result is an increase in sales numbers, happier customers and a more competitive marketplace. The experts at WebProvise.com are not surprised and are already helping clients up their share of Spring sales via social media.
“We have a dedicated staff of specialists who help our customers approach Internet Marketing from all angles,” explains Loren D. Saxby, CEO and founder of WebProvise.
Indeed they do. WebProvise offers its clients Internet Marketing Services such as:
- SMM (Social Media Marketing)
- ORM (Online Reputation Management)
- Press Release Writing, Layout & Distribution
- Live Chat Set Up & Management
- Search Engine Optimization
- E-mail Marketing
- PPC (Pay Per Click) & SEM (Search Engine Marketing) Campaigns
“Not investing in social media strategies – especially on occasions where the target market is youthful, has disposable income and is already highly ‘connected’ – is like throwing money down the drain,” adds Saxby, explaining Orbitz’s findings.
“Big names in travel would be remiss if they didn’t use Social Rewards programs to engage those consumers in ways which make sense for their lifestyle. But, it’s not just big business that can benefit from the spike in spring break sales. Any business that develops a well thought-out social media plan and executes it will increase its following.”
Marie LaPlante, senior director of brand marketing for Orbitz, recently said as much.
"Social media-savvy travelers are cashing in on deals from their favorite travel companies,” says LaPlante. “(We) can expect to see this trend continue to grow and become more competitive in 2013."
With social media being the new wave in advertising, WebProvise suggests that businesses learn to hang ten like the professionals.
“In today’s marketplace,” concludes Saxby, “it’s sink or swim. If you want to rise to the top within your industry, you have to meet consumers on their own turf.”
