Social Networking and Social Media Optimisation are here to stay. With thousands, maybe millions, of internet users engaging in some sort of social networking activity every day, it is easy to understand why it is becoming such a powerful tool.
Many companies are jumping on the social networking bandwagon for numerous reasons, some with the intention to build a bigger network of prospects others to increase their brand awareness. Whatever the reason might be, social networking sites are becoming so popular that companies who do not take advantage from it are missing out big time.
Small companies with a well-planned online marketing campaign are increasing their revenue year by year and are gaining advantage over big organisations that failed or were too slow to predict the potential of social networking.
Take the bakery trade for instance. More and more bakeries around the country are investing part of their marketing budget on social networking sites like Bebo and Facebook, and they are receiving great feedback from it.
In one of these bakeries based in London, clients can order the products online and have it delivered to any address in Greater London. Besides the website, the company has a Facebook Page, a blog and accounts in other social networking sites like YouTube and Flickr.
What is so great about social media marketing is that there is no need to spend rivers of money or many hours of work to achieve good results.
So, what are you waiting for? Jump on the Social Networking Bandwagon!
