The firm’s senior research manager, Phil Harpur predicted that social media was far from over, in fact it would continue to gain popularity as an advertising medium.
The report notes that nearly 60 per cent of Australian companies that used online advertising were active on Facebook to some extent last year and this would increase in 2013 and 2014.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that we are big fans of social media as a marketing avenue. When it is done properly, it can be a perfect way to engage with customers – and potential customers – in a meaningful, transparent way.
It offers true two-way communication and means you can respond effectively and efficiently to customer enquiries and concerns.
The key, however, is “properly”. Facebook – and other social media channels – is not an opportunity to constantly promote, promote, promote. If you manage a Facebook page for your business, you need to create content that resonates with your likers – and attracts you likers.
At DSO, we know how to do that, which is why we offer a Facebook marketing service to new and existing clients.
