Think social media and you can instantly come up with names like Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, Myspace etc. Social media websites and networks have taken over people's digital lives like never before. Social media's biggest beneficiaries were all the businesses who couldn't afford to spend thousands of dollars on marketing and advertising.
Social media marketing (SMM) has opened up a low-cost channel for businesses to improve brand visibility and reach out to customers easily. Through social media advertising and marketing, a prospective client can learn about your company, see how it has helped others and how your company's products/services can solve his problems.
The premise of social marketing is to establish a personal dialogue with customers and prospects alike, and to create a community around your offerings. It only makes sense if you are present in social networks where your customers hang out and you are able to make a personal connection with them. This is highly effective than pesky advertising that your audience doesn't always appreciate. Compared to other traditional forms of marketing, social media marketing is cheaper and is much more effective.
