What is Social Media?

“Social media are media for social interaction, using highly accessible and scalable communication techniques. Social media is the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into interactive dialogue.” (as quoted by Wikipedia).

In plain language, social media is instant conversation with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Sharing your interests, feelings, likes & dislikes, thoughts & views for all to see. A real-time information network.

Many studies show that a consumer following a product or service on Facebook or Twitter will purchase that brand or product, especially when recommended by Facebook “Friends” or Twitter “followers”.

Facebook

A popular quote these days from young and old: “I read/saw/heard about it on Facebook.” Well why not get people talking about your business and not just what they did on the weekend? Facebook is one of the biggest websites in the world, in Australia alone there are over 10,000,000 users.

A great way to take advantage of the increased participation is to set up a Facebook Business Page. In a nutshell this is your company profile on Facebook. People “like” your page and whenever they converse with your page, or you with them, it appears in their Facebook activity for all their friends to see.

With a Facebook Business Page you can engage with your customers and potential customers on a regular basis. A Facebook Business Page allows you to create a custom landing page for a very professional look.

A Facebook Business Page establishes another outpost for your business on the web and when you link your Page to your website you drive more traffic to your website, and, because search engines index content from Facebook your Business Page has the potential to generate better search engine results for your business.
