Social Media the eyes and ears of all the industries?
Right or Wrong?
I believe it is right.
Social media these days is described as the mouthpiece of companies.
Brands use Social media as the source for distribution of information, making announcements or to be connected with their customers.
As per the statistics from the website ‘contentfac’
Social media marketing has a 100% higher lead-to-close rate than outbound marketing? Or that 84% of B2B marketers use social media in some form?
After getting to know this, answer few of my questions.
How well do you use Social Media for your Brand?
In the past year were you aware of the social media trends?
What have you planned for this year?
If you are making your way in the Branding Business or you are a Pro already we all need a guide or reference to look at.
I have found one.
It’s by Carmen Lascu from www.carmenlascu.com.
I love writing and sharing my experiences and hence decided to share what one needs in this age of Social Media Marketing.
I have been a regular reader of her blog which has been nominated for UK Blog Awards as well.
The book ‘Social Media Trends for 2017’ is a to the point guide which can help you take your Social Media to another level.
You may be thinking what is so special about the book when once can easily go and find the info on the internet. Isn’t it?
But tell me one thing my friends, when we can go ahead easily why go ahead with a harder path.
This book packed with predictions from 25 Influencers and Social Media Experts from the UK, USA & Australia some of which Carmen knew from her Twitter account & others which she met on various other platforms which connect journalists, bloggers, and writers with sources worldwide.
All the specialists that have shared their predictions I this lovely eBook have gained many years of experience in social media and digital marketing.
When Albert Einstein said
The only source of knowledge is Experience.
I connect with it, it’s our experiences who make us wise. So let’s utilize experience shared by influencers.
Let me share the main three Social Media Trends in the book with you all:
- Video and Live Streaming
- Virtual and Augmented Reality
- Better Customer Service via Social Media
But the book doesn’t just share the trends, it starts with how did social media change in 2016 helping in one taking the hold of the base first and then take off with what can one expect from social media now in 2017.
That easily helps newbies as well as pro-social media marketers with planning their social media strategy.
That’s because it is all about planning and working on its execution.
Brands work on social media execution because it is not just related to increasing the Brand awareness or connecting with your audience, but like I have always said that social media is the new word of mouth where when your audience share your products or write a review on your page it influences others to check you out.
So, tell me who doesn’t want shares or retweets of their posts?
Remember, social media is all about the relationships building it has never been a platform where it is all only about selling products or services.
Carmen Lascu in her book shares 6 easy steps to create your Social Media Marketing strategy along with tips specific for different platforms which can easily help.
