The Case For Social Media Marketing

outdoor social media marketing

Marketing is one of the most essential tasks that any company, large or small, has to accomplish in order to let the world know about their product or service and to generate revenue. The larger companies spend literally millions of dollars each year to hire outside firms to handle their marketing but no matter how big or small the business, a well-planned, maintained and executed marketing strategy is vital.

Today there is a fast-growing trend towards what has been called 'social media marketing' whereby a business will use the internet and various social media websites to market themselves. Some of the biggest names in social media marketing are FaceBook, Twitter and YouTube and in fact these 3 powerhouse websites attract over 5 million visitors per day to their sites, numbers that can make a huge difference in any company's bottom line if they are used correctly.

With that in mind let's take a look at why social media is an excellent marketing solution and what FaceBook, YouTube and Twitter can do for your outdoor-based business, or any business for that matter.

Social media is an excellent way to Brand your company online. Your FaceBook and Twitter pages are a direct channel to the market and YouTube even lets the public hear and see your product or service up close and personal, which creates an affinity for your brand at the same time.

Of course one of the best aspects of social media marketing is the ability to use it to generate leads and create a revenue stream back to your company directly from said websites.

Customer feedback is one of the best offshoots of social media marketing and can help lead your company in the direction that your customers are looking for. Customer engagement is high on pages like FaceBook and Twitter and this engagement will pay off in feedback that will make your services or products even more appealing to the public.

YouTube and other social media sites can help create relevant traffic to your business's website. Use them correctly and the people that land on your site will already be primed to purchase whatever it is you're selling.

Have a new product or service to announce? Post the news to your Twitter and FaceBook page and your customers and fans will instantly know about it before the rest of the public.

Social media can be a driving force that propels your website higher in search engine results, making it easier for people searching the web to find you and of course increase your revenues.

Your Return on Investment (ROI) can increase substantially if you use social media correctly to market your business. It will help you increase your conversion rates also because people who click to your main website from Twitter, YouTube or FaceBook are already primed to buy because they already know what it is you have to offer.

Finally, all of your hard work on your social media marketing campaigns will enhance your relationship with your customers and create more value in their eyes, something that very few other forms of marketing can do.

So there you have it; plenty of excellent reasons why social media is one of the best ways to market your business today. Use it wisely and your business will gradually see an increase in affinity and, more importantly, revenue. Good luck.
