In recent years we have seen fresh, new and innovative tools introduced for the marketeer’s toolbox. There has been an explosion of online social media platforms and some of them are appropriate and effective within the construction sector.Our aim is to identify which platforms are best for your business and prove to be effective in the overall strategy of selling services or products to your target audience.
With the advent of Social Media Marketing I want to give you a few statistics that I have picked up from various sources. I know the old saying, “”Lies, damned lies, and statistics” is a phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers but, it at least gives us an idea of how this medium has enhanced and increased the power and reach of marketing.
Twitter – A micro blogging site which has 75 million accounts with 15 million active users and recently celebrated it’s 5th birthday with 50 million tweets per day and 600 sent every second.
LinkedIn – Launched in 2003 for professional networking and spanning 200 countries. It is the world’s largest professional network with over 100 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals.
Facebook – Is a social networking website launched in 2004 with over 600 million active users and about 175 million log on every day. Impressive!
Reaching 50 million Users – Radio took 38 years to achieve this, TV 13 years, Internet 4 years, IPod 3 years, Facebook had 100 million users in 9 months (the time a woman carries a child), and IPhone applications had 1 billion users within 9 months. Wow! With these and other platforms being used increasingly we need to understand how they influence our business plans and why we should subscribe to the right tools for future and better marketing. We can implement any or all of these but always working with you to find the best tools for YOUR company.
Our packages include professional Telesales, Website Design, Blog development, Introduction to Social Media Marketing, Print and Exhibition Graphics. We work with excellent Copywriters, Designers and Developers in order to provide a team ‘on tap’ for your marketing requirements.
