At the time of the internet’s conception, who would have thought that Social Media would have such an impact on the way we communicate with each other. Despite now being the most popular form of online communication method, Social Media offers huge benefits when building ‘real world’ relationships.
Social Media now fits into almost all aspects of life, whether it’s sharing your latest holiday photos with family and friends, reaching out to distant relations, or simply exchanging information online. There’s no disputing that Social Media has had a profound effect on modern life.
And not just in our personal lives. If you are a trading business in 2017, having an online presence is not just paramount, it is essential to your future success. Social Media offers businesses of all sizes the opportunity to network and engage with an intended audience efficiently, affordably, and immediately – no other form of marketing can offer such a high value return.
Online Social Engagement is about opening and maintaining communication with an audience online, otherwise more popularly known as Social Networking. It is utilising the latest Social Media tools and platforms to communicate and share information with an engaged audience.
Social Media offers the opportunity to build a customer base loyal to your cause or values, which can in turn be converted into high value leads, brand ambassadors, and advocates.
The fact Social Media remains the most cost effective marketing method for reaching out to a mass audience should be enough to demonstrate its importance for businesses, but the importance of Social Media for business is so much more than about it being cheap.
When used effectively and embraced fully, the potential to reach an untapped, unquantifiable audience size makes this medium even more attractive. Online Social Engagement is all about talking with people, and Social Media combines our fascination with technology with our increasing need to push boundaries and reach further than we did before.
Maybe it’s because a simple post can potentially be viewed and shared by almost anyone on the planet that some find scary and dangerous, but it is an exciting opportunity nonetheless. An opportunity to broaden your catchment area, project your voice and explore new ventures – ventures that could become highly profitable.
