A Note On Social Media – Does Social Media Marketing Work?
Social media is now a part of your business regardless if you like or not. People will talk about your business, rate your business, and complain about your business. If you material is good, it will be shared in the social biosphere. If its bad, it will definitely be shared in the social world.
Social media no longer something you have to “do”, it now just “is”. Does that mean you don’t need to think through a campaign or build a presence? No, but it does mean that it permeates. The more tools you can harness for your business, the more your business will flourish. Just as social media is grafted into the web, website and SEO are standard elements that most every professional I’ve talked to can’t deny needs to be handled in a professional and deliberate fashion.
The web is a labyrinth of never-ending opportunities and pitfalls. Like a puzzle, your internet presence will consist of many pieces. Everything you do on the web should begin with strategic goals and planning. The cursory applied social media or other marketing tool is an exercise in futility in the unforgiving world of the web.
So does social media marketing work? Yes, but within reason and within the scope of reality.
