Our online marketing team take a look at social media – 2012 style
2012 has been a great year! A man jumped from space, the Olympics enthralled us all and the Queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee and guess what? 2012 finally saw the implementation of social media within the business context, with European executives using the likes of Twitter and LinkedIn for many different online marketing and business activities.
The research, which was revealed by CNBC’s ‘Europe’s Mobile Elite 2012’ study, showed that this was the year businesses started using social media more actively. In 2011, 61% of executives predicted that social media would change the way business is carried out in the future, 2012 that came true with 69% backing up that statement, showing just how vital it is for businesses to implement social media marketing into their business plans.
As an SEO company who provides social media marketing, we are delighted with the news that Twitter’s use as a business and marketing platform continues to increase, with 80% of tweeters saying they use the social network to follow key business figures, an increase from last years figure of 61%.
The membership of social media networks continued to rise this year too with Facebook reaching over 1 billion users. Businesses themselves now actively seek to make the most of people’s timelines on Facebook and Twitter, paying for sponsored appearances of their products for people to see.
With this current surge it’s important for businesses to take advantage of the marketing opportunities that have opened up. Many an SEO company will claim to get you the best results, but few will be able to offer you the clever techniques that guarantee results like we do.
Our specialist team of online marketing experts strive to create the best social media campaigns for your business, whatever products or services you’re offering. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Facebook competition page you want creating or a YouTube account with engaging videos about your business, we are here to aid you in every aspect of social media.
