- Taking advantage of tagging, bookmarking and sharing
- Promotion through channels such as podcasting and video

Social Media Marketing
Social Media Marketing offers platforms that help people to share their opinions and experiences with each other. It allows brands to reach their target audience via whole new channels. The days have gone for brands when it was considered a nice addition to have a social media presence online. Your visitors expect to see an active and engaged community surrounding your brand and integrated with your website. If it is not, you have already fallen behind your successful competitors.
Social Media is user-driven and the user community has enormous power over the reputation of a brand. Have you considered what people are saying about your brand online? Online Reputation Management allows brands to monitor mentions of their brand online; to manage negative comments in order to avert potential PR disasters and to promote and encourage positive sentiment.
Social Media is revolutionary and here to stay. To take advantage of this new technology, brands should be looking to optimise their websites accordingly. Contact me today to discuss a personalised social media solution for your business.
