Social media has changed the way people connect, discover, share information and conduct business- but you already know this so let’s get to the good stuff. Here’s what you need to know:
– Social media – this is the technology people use to connect, share ideas and experiences. Businesses tap into this infrastructure to connect with customers and grow their brands.
– Social networks – such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.; these are the places where social interaction take place.
– Social media marketing – using this technology to build relationships that build awareness, customer trust and of course, repeat business.
Any of this make sense? It should, because social media is basically just word-of-mouth powered by technology. Over 75% of people are highly likely to share content they like online with their friends, family or coworkers; and 49% do this on a weekly basis.
