Social Media Marketing Is No Longer An Option!

social media marketingAt this stage, it is obvious that Social Media Marketing is no longer an option but rather a MUST for any brand/business to be sustainable in the long run. Social Commerce has changed the landscape of marketing as a whole. For those who are involved in the marketing, we just need to keep our eyes wide-open for the development in the Social Media space!

That's also the reason for me to create another blog focusing on Social Media development. I simply called it Social Media Plus. Basically, I created this platform to share my curation of Social Media related resources, with a tinge of Asian Perspective in a weekly post that I called Social Media Flash (click to see the sample post). This is on top of the regular posts that I shared a few times a week.

Thus, do drop by and provide me with your feedback/comment on your view of the blog.
Now, let's discuss a little bit more about why I said Social Media Marketing is no longer an option:
1. When a page or brand was liked by your close/good friends (in Facebook), would you usually take a closer look into that brand/page on what they are offering? [this is called peer/social recommendation]
2. Do you feel left out when your friends/colleagues are discussing about the latest happening in the social media space and you are no clue about it?
3.  A report from socialnomics indicates that 93% of marketers are now use Social Media for business.
4. The Social Networking giant, Facebook has crossed the 1 billion user base (good enough reason for you to get excited?) and many more...

So, it's time to get your hand "dirty" with Social Media and I am sure you will have fun along the way too! After all, Social Media is also about interaction and relationship building.

Until next time, Cheers!
