Social media advertising

Social media advertising

As consumers spent more and more time on social media sites, the opportunities for effective advertising become more attractive to companies in search of customers to connect with.   

Social media advertising is the cutting edge of marketing which continues its evolution. 
To run an effective social media advertising campaign a business needs fresh and informative content. This will attract and engage users and enable the business to participate in the social community.
Instead of pushing a product or service, it’s more important to inform and teach, so the audience relates to the business.

Facebook: We all know there are over 500 million active users on Facebook. Each average user has 130 friends and is connected to 80 community pages, groups and events. More than 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) are shared each month. Facebook ad costs are pretty reasonable which allows companies of just about any size or budget to test them out. Ads appear on the right side of the page.

YouTube: As the second most popular search engine after Google and with online video advertising expected to hit 5.7 billion by 2014, YouTube presents a tremendous opportunity for exposure and engagement in a social context. Ads appear within videos or alongside them.

YouTube Video Ad Best Practices Include:

  • Keep it short - The longer the message, the higher the possibility users will tune out. 60 seconds is a good benchmark.
  • Keep it engaging - Entertain, inform and be relevant. Users will view the majority of a video if they are interested and engaged.
  • Inspire, don’t just educate - Avoid focusing solely on being educational; two minutes of talking heads doesn’t work well.
  • Deliver key messages early - Plan for user tune-out near the end of the video and deliver your message early.

Google Plus, which now has 170-million users, has been redesigned to make it easier to use and more attractive. Google+ isn’t overwhelmed by its many features. It’s easy to navigate and its icons speak for themselves. It has built a system that can seamlessly allow us to customize the level of social interaction we want with different people. You can now create Google+ badges for your site. And advertise for free.

Twitter is a free social networking site. The service allows users to post 140 character messages, called “tweets”, and follow their friends' activities through the web. Users can choose to keep their tweets private and individually approve followers.  Since its initial launch in 2006, Twitter has revolutionized the way news is generated and the way people and businesses connect to clients and comrades around the world.

A social network’s strength is in its ability to create clubs and groups around areas of interests, not to deliver revenues from traditional broadcast-like advertising. Groups generate interest.
Social networks make viral marketing and word-of-mouth marketing much easier than before. The best use out of social networks is not to make money ‘directly’ off them, but to harness their marketing potential and to use them to market your own business.
