Social Media Marketing Strategy, Consulting & Services
The ever-changing social media landscape has captured the imagination of many marketers and small business owners.
As quickly as many small business owners and marketers are to jump on to social media, they are equally quick to admit that they really don’t know how they’ll turn followers, fans (now likes) and friends into customers.
Social Media Marketing demands the attention of every business.
Small Businesses can benefit social media marketing consulting services and optimization programs, if they have a solid strategy, the resources to invest in deployment, and the ability to measure and adapt to the ever-changing etiquette and unwritten rules of each individual social media platform.
Most PR and marketing firms selling social media services are great at creating Twitter accounts, Facebook pages and Linkedin profiles. Yet, few understand how to build audiences, promote brand, and perhaps most importantly, leverage the indisputable relationship between social media and search engines. – Rebecca Murtagh, President of Karner Blue Marketing
What Real Time Search and Social Means to Your Business
Google announced at the end of 2009 that they “real time search” would target and favor social media. Later, Google anounced that they would be licensing Twitter updates. Then, Tweets became permanently archived, and available via Google Search, forever.
One of the most overlooked, and most powerful aspects of social media marketing is the relationship between social media and search. As a marketing firm that has specialized in SEO (search engine optmization), it was only natural for us to adapt quickly to develop social marketing methods that leverage social search.
There are 2 kinds of Social Search:
- Search on the Social Media Platform.
- Search on Search Engines Google, Yahoo, Bing and others, including “real-time” Search
Proven Social Media Marketing Deliver Real Results
Anyone can experiment on social platforms. In fact, it can be fun and downright addictive to communicate with people on social media. However, if you are planning to leverage social media for your business, why would you approach this powerful medium any less seriously than SEO, Print, TV, Radio or PPC?
In the beginning, some of our SEO clients were skeptical of the social media marketing approach. They became quick believers when they saw their businesses grow…exponentially in a short period of time.
