The statistics are in!
The newly formed Social Media Marketing genre have taken companies by storm. Small companies have found an inexpensive way to speak with their customers about special events, promotions, problem-solving and much more. But, the questions has shifted from: should I join the conversation to where do I join in the conversation? MySpace was a large forum and a launchpad for the social networking generation, but movement has appeared to shift fom MySpace to Facebook. Yet, companies still ask…should I join MySpace?
A recent study of business owners found from 2009 to 2010, social networking sites such as MySpace, Digg, Flickr, and StumbleUpon have become less important than their more popular counterparts: Facebook, Twitter, and a company blog.
This research is a strong reinforcement of what we have been saying at Strike Marketing for a year now…not to mention the success our clients are finding from implementing a strong social media marketing program!
