What is Social Media
Social media marketing is powerful. The last decade has seen the Web grow up from a somewhat limited network used to share bits of information among a group of academic intellectuals to a global phenomenon offering more information, resources, and social connections than ever before in history.
One of the more recent developments in Internet history has been social media, basically, a Web-based mode of interacting that uses a wide array of tools, websites, and other applications to encourage communication between individuals, corporations and other organisations. This has totally revolutionised how we can communicated with people all over the world.
Types of social media marketing
Social media actually encompasses many different technologies, yet the underlying aims of these platforms are the same: to encourage communication. Examples of social media types include:
- Image sharing sites
“What does a social media marketing specialist do?” you might ask, thinking this is an employee you don’t need at your company. A social media marketing specialist, also called a social media manager, is vital to media companies which want to stay ahead of their competition and make a connection with the community.

What Social Media platform to use.
Social media networks are brilliant resources for businesses of all sizes looking to promote their brands online.

Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising is most often seen as the opposite side of SEO. Whereas SEO is a continual process that takes time and effort to do right, PPC offers much quicker traffic gain. Because PPC enables you to target keywords related to your business and have your site appear at the top of the results, it might seem like a great way to bring in targeted visitors. The truth is that using PPC without a clear plan could result in you spending a lot of money with very little return on investment.

In order to get the most from all of your social media platforms, you should post to each one no more than 3 times a week. If you post more than this, you will be seen as ‘spammy’ in the eyes of Google. That is definitely not what we want!
