The Power of Social Media

socialmedia2

What is social media, you ask? Think Facebook? Think YouTube or Twitter? Think fundamental shift in how businesses reach customers and how organizations connect with constituencies. Think outside your traditional marketing box. Web 2.0 is alive with conversations, and Internet marketing isn’t just about email blasts anymore. The social media train is leaving, and you don’t want to get left at the station.

Think you know what we’re talking about?

Social Media is a phrase being tossed around a lot these days, but it can sometimes be difficult to determine and identify how best to utilize and integrate The Power of Social Media into your personal or business strategy. However, make absolutely no mistake, Social Media, Social Networking and Social Interaction is the future of Business Marketing and should be exploited to its fullest potential.

Think about it… Facebook www.facebook.com currently has more than 700million users, a quite staggering statistic. Twitter www.twitter.com is closing in on 200million users.

IMAGINE THE POTENTIAL

Create a Social Brand and Corporate Account on Facebook, Twitter ALONE and deliver hourly, daily, weekly or monthly messages, information, content and news to tens of thousands or even millions of users all over the world in an instant. Never before has there been such a comprehensive tool in reaching out to the masses in a direct sell of your business, product or news.

Social Media has arrived and not only is it here to stay, it is the future of how WE communicate, how WE generate new interests and business opportunities and how WE market our brands to local, national and international communities.

Social Media, SEO and Google.com

Google recently announced a change in its algorithm which allows for increased visibility and SERP (Search Engine Results Page) Ranking based on Web2.0 and Social Media interaction. Google’s increased emphasis on the importance of Social Media presence means it is more important than ever to really start using Social Media in your internet marketing strategy. Social Media should already be a part of most search engine optimization strategies and almost every marketing campaign, but now it is essential to have more than a passive interest. And not just for the potential backlinks, but for all the other reasons social networking is great for business – more personal interaction, the ability to listen to and better understand your customers, and of course exposure to your potential audience where they spend most of their time.

Google will now recognize chat, hype and activity of your BRAND name, PERSONAL name or KEY SEARCH TERM directly within the Social Media sites. Google will recognize this activity as positive and will encourage a vastly improved Google Page Ranking. It is just a matter of time before the other key search engines update their algorithms to perform similar functionality.

In summary it is more important than ever to include Social Media into your marketing strategy as SEO becomes more and more integral to company performance, revenue and recognition.

    avatar Sarah Bates says:

    Anthony Godley, howcome its your other aliases commenting here?

    avatar Sarah Bates says:

    If you are dealing with Anthony Godley and KPRS Media, please be careful.

    This is a fly-**-night company owned and operated ** Anthony Godley, an English conman now residing in Manila, Philippines. He operates this company together with his Filipina gf, Kathleen Hidalgo. All other names they give out are fictional and just their aliases. You can be sure of this. Ask to talk to Anthony Godley or Kathleen Hidalgo, then ask to be put through with Alex or Wendy. It will be one and the same person.

    This company claims to be a legitimate one that offers SEO services. To make sure it is a legitimate company, ask for their proper documents and registration. Ask for their BIR papers and their SEC papers. It is definite that this company is NOT registered AT ALL.

    Anthony Godley used to own The Reputation House, and had scammed alot of clients already locally in the Philippines and even internationally. When he started having problems with The Reputation House, Anthony Godley just suddenly closed it down and easily disappeared on his clients. He can easily do this as he does not have a working office, and can easily change his mobile number.

    There’s nothing wrong with being cautious. So, be careful with KPRS Media!!!
