Social Media Statistics that you just can’t ignore… Watch this Video.
Compelling facts from the video. While it was no doubt Erik Qaulman had it created to promote his book Socialnomics, (no I’m not an affiliate) it opens your eyes up to the massive opportunities created by these new web 2.0 mediums. Social media isn’t a fad. It’s growing exponentially and you better get with the program or get left behind.
I remember way back in the CompuServe and AOL days when people thought that the Internet was a fad too. They waited to get their website going. Same thing happened again with blogging. Now it’s Social media that has so many business professionals confused on the best practices to use to grow their business.
Social Media offers unique opportunities to build relationships, listen to the marketplace, get higher rankings in the search engines, gain consumer insights, and yes, get more sales.
Businesses today can leverage social media by creating a social media action plan. First, understand that even if you aren’t very active on Social media websites, you already have a presence because your customers are blogging, tweeting, linking, commenting and rating your company, products & services, and employees. Don’t believe me… go check for yourself. Go Google (or Bing, Yahoo search) your name or products. Go to Facebook and search keywords. Then LinkedIn…. and even YouTube. You may be very surprised by the results.
