SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

Social Media Marketing Chesterfield.

Dive in and add some video to your site!

Recent years have seen the rise of a new form of online promotion – social media marketing. Now that the majority of people have access to the web, the demand for social destinations has grown into a giant opportunity for advertisers to reach consumers of all ages and tastes.

Some sites, like Flickr (for sharing photos) and YouTube (for sharing video) create communities by giving visitors the opportunity to vote, comment and recommend to others. The use of sites like StumbleUpon, Digg, etc also allow people to create links to their favourite destinations, stories, news, pictures, video, etc.

The spread of viral information via these sites can be phenomenal! A funny or controversial video can spread rapidly across the web reaching millions of consumers.

However, the biggest success in social media is Facebook. It has become so big that it is, at the time of writing, the third most popular site on the web with 800 million members – and that number increases every day! As to the advertising potential, Facebook is up there with Google and YouTube in the number of searches performed.
