The Power of Social Media Marketing

By  

October 19, 2010

Here at MNG we focus on a number of things. One of those being Social Media. Social Media Marketing has fast become one of the most effective forms of marketing. It is effectively the online equivalent of word of mouth offline. Except, it isn’t word of mouth, it is World of mouth. People by nature are more likely to listen to a recommendation or idea from a ‘friend’ than react to an anonymous advert or unsolicited contact – either through flyer on your car window, unwanted commercial breaks on TV and Radio or unsolicited email or mobile contact. If someone you know recommends a service or product, you will more than likely at least check it out.

For major organisations, social media is again showing just how powerful it is. Take a look at this report regarding the company GAP. I would imagine that most people are familiar with the brand and associate it with their logo that has been around for 20 years. Look what happened when they tried to change it!

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work? I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

Barry March 13, 2011 at 10:46 am

Hi Buster. My recommendation is to make sure you are all set up from an SEO perspective so as to get as many people to your blog as possible. If you are using it just as an online journal then this isn’t important, but if you are looking to use a blog as part of your online empire, I would suggest optimising it as well as using it as your hub. Set up correctly, you can use all the other online media to drive traffic to your blog, where you will provide awesome content and build your list. Other advice is to self host so you ‘own’ your blog and just go for it. Try something and if it doesn’t work, try something else – but just take some action. Have a great day and thanks for the comment.

Youre not the average blog writer, man. You definitely have something powerful to add to the web. Your design is so strong that you could almost get away with being a bad writer, but you’re even awesome at expressing what you have to say. Keep up the good work man!
