Social Media - not just another marketing tool.

Two days before, a new music album was released by a talented musical band. As they were freshman, they genuinely sound fresh & new. They have also combined different forms to craft something unique and captivating- as expected of artists. In order to enhance the marketability quotient about the brand and their album, PR’s and the marketers labeled the album as a fantabulous music we have never heard before. Even the band members were dressed up in uber fashionable clothes with dreadlocks on their launch party calling their album with newer adjectives like eHop, Trip hip and so on.

The question is, will the marketing that targets the audience of local denomination only, turn out to be successful in the past paced digitized world? The most fruitful and yielding method of marketing is no more Press Releases, inbound marketing, advertisements or Search engine optimization, it is actually the Social Media Marketing that brings generous results. Precisely, the success of social media marketing lies in the fact it is the only strategy through which brands connect emotionally with the targeted audience.

The thing about marketing is, customers are hardly interested in what all types of marketing brands are doing, and the only thing they care about is which brand holds an ability to connect to their emotion. As a matter of fact, as more and more things are thrown at the targeted audience in the name of marketing, the probability of customers shutting the brand out or off quadruples.

Think for a second: Everyone in today’s world is busy, would consumers like to waste their time talking to a telemarketer or a direct marketer or responding to search engine marketers?

Social Media helps brands to relate with the targeted audience, but that does not mean the profession of marketers is long dead and it’s time to try other jobs. Rather it’s time to employ strategy wherein they can sneak into people life by caring not by sending hundreds of spam emails or gibberish marketing calls.

For a customer, there are only two types of marketing

  • That makes them relate to the product or services
  • That does not relate

For the brands which land into the latter type, no matter how and what they are advertising, to the targeted audience it will be all irrelevant. None can deny the fact, we are living in a media driven world where progressive brands intending to relate with the necessitations of the targeted audience are using social media marketing. The truth is customers are no looking for television advertisements or big pamphlets but matter to which they can connect. They need useful and game-changing conceptions which involve smart thinking.

Using Social media marketing means employing a collaborative approach of marketing.

  • As of November 2013 statistics, there are 1.19 Billion active users on Facebook
  • As of June 2013 statistics, there are 218 Million active users on Twitter
  • Google’s Annual Search Statistics for the year of 2012, on an average 5,134,000,000 searches were made by Netizens
  • After Google, YouTube has gracefully satisfied people’s quest about products and services.

Social Media has been termed as the most effective mode of marketing because of its collaborative approach.
