Over the last couple of years social media marketing services have been the biggest growth area in marketing and it is clear to see why. Social media is now an integral part of everyday life for most people. Indeed, the world now spends over 110 billion minutes on social networks and blog sites. This equates to 22% of all time online. Facebook, the largest social network, now has more members than the entire population of Europe – and counting…
The impact of social networks and the opportunities they provide businesses is varied and significant, but one of the main benefits is that it can help drive participation and collaboration between you and your customers. This type of interaction builds communities, and it is communities that help to keep your customers engaged with your brand creating a local buzz around your products and your services.
