Social Crazed Facts You Need to Know
Are you skeptical about marketing’s newest method, Social Media? Do you think that Social Media Marketing (SMM) is a fad that will fade into the sunset, just as quickly as it came to be? Have you refused to change your marketing methods, believing that what has worked in the past will continue to work in the future? If yes, perhaps a few factual statistics will persuade you to reconsider your thoughts on Social Media Marketing?
Even if you are not interested in chatting with friends or posting pictures of your involvement in the community, do not blacklist Social Media just yet. Consider that 80% of companies use social media for recruitment and weeding out prospects. Out of this 80%, 95% of them are using LinkedIn.
Did you know that one out of every 9 people in the world are on Facebook or that 71% of companies use Facebook to promote and keep notice as to what the competition is scheming. If Facebook was considered a country, and every person that uses Facebook today, was counted as a resident; Facebook would rank as the third largest country in the world-only ranking under India and China.
Did you know that; 59% of companies use Twitter, 50% use Blogger, and 33% are using YouTube where the site as a whole receives 92 billion page views per month. If that isn’t enough significance, how about the fact that 25 billion people are already using Google + and Flicker hosts over 5 billion images (and 3000 more are uploaded each minute).
The World Of Social Media is Upon Us
If you do not believe in the relevance of social media marketing for your business, perhaps you should consider this; While you put time/money and effort into the same old marketing methods and reach the same group of individuals; your competition is putting their belief into social media marketing and they are reaching the 71% of companies that use Facebook, the 25 billion people on Google +, while benefiting from their share of the 92 billion page views that YouTube receives every day.
Social Media makes reaching the world, a plausible thought, without SMM, you will continue reaching the same circle of people in your contacts file that you have been reaching, over and over again.
