What is this thing called? Love…. Social Media

 

And more importantly, how does it help my business?

First up, Social Media is best described as those websites where the members of the website interact socially, like a dating website or facebook.  There are thousands of these, where people get together and chat, discuss and share.
The last part of that is the important part for business….   They share.  Sharing is recommending, it is word-of-mouth advertising and of course in the real world, word of mouth is the most powerful advertising of all.
Whether you like to talk, chat, poke, tweet, post, blog, comment, digg, like, pin or plus one, people like to get together and discuss things and every business wants to be involved in that.

Real world   VS  Online world?

I like to always compare to the real world and many local business are popular because they do the right thing, in their local community.  Like supporting the local football team and turning up to matches, being seen…  In the online world this is done through facebook fan pages and google business pages, twitter, your business website, etc.  The more you get involved, the more interest there is and the search engines (google) like it – so they recommend you to people who are searching for things on the internet, like what your business offers.
It works together, just like a gathering of people and that is why it is so important to have Social Media.
