Social mediaSocial media is here to stay but what is it's value for us as business people? I was unsure of the viable application of twitter and other social media at first but now seeing how technology can tie in bloggs, updates, networking sites and forum's in ONE GO through 'sharing' 'RSS Feeds' and direct links it is clear how much people will be missing out on huge PR and Marketing opportunities if they are not set up for this next technological revolution.
The applications seem to be endless, from advertising affiliate links, brand awareness and direct sales. The diverse ways that this media is being used both on PC and more often than not now, on smartphones, is limitless but it all seems to point to one thing ; increasing the traffic to whatever it is you are trying to sell. Whether to an affiliate link or directly to a website to find out more information, social media's use for business is all about traffic. I believe it is becoming one of the most important marketing tools in the area of brand awareness and it has cleverly blurred the lines between business and social networking sites.
