Social Media Marketing

Visibility At All Levels

In many ways, the internet is like one big chat room. Sites like Facebook, MySpace and YouTube attract millions of hits a day. Mostly, people use these sites to keep up with their friends or to broadcast their doings. But they also use them to shop. They ask for recommendations. They ask for opinions. And they act accordingly.

Research has revealed an amazing truth: while 14% of people trust the ads they see, an overwhelming 76% make their purchasing decisions based on recommendations of friends --- and nowadays, people have hundreds of friends.

Our job, therefore, is help you make use of this very important tool.
