Social Media and Business Marketing

The need for client business marketing led to providing social media marketing. My passion for social media combined with traditional marketing savvy was a good mix for my clients’ needs for social media marketing. Because of my own skills and my clients’ needs, I skyrocketed smoothly to another profession.

I had a hungry audience. It was clear that the transition in marketing technology made it essential for all business to know who their audience
was and how to make use of both traditional and social media marketing tools. I was in the right place at the right time.

My Social Media Venues That Focus on Business Marketing

Social media is multi-faceted. Each venue has it’s own personality. Viewing a combination of more than one social media venue about the same topic creates a synergy. In other words, this multiplies the companies viewability, increases the company’s reach and opportunities for viewer awareness. The more places a company or topic appear, the greater is opportunity for recognition.

art & bytesMARKETING BYTES was my venture into this 21st century system of social media business marketing or social media marketing. There are many in-depth, technical means for synthesizing, measuring and analysing the efficacy of these tools. It is a science of its own. These systems measure how well these tools communicate with potential and existing customers. They can manipulate the flow from attraction through purchasing traffic, measure this activity, manage content towards this end, create and determine which keywords work best for positioning a company’s information, increase and determine the reach of electronic communication, generate and cultivate leads, etc.

To me, it is like rocket science. There are many professionals more capable of using and understanding this technology than I was and still am. But I found my niche when visual tools came back into the picture of the initially, verbally and strictly code based system. Go to the Digital Design page to see what I mean.
