Before we answer the question How To Market with Social Media let us make sure that we know exactly what social media is. Social media is the different platforms used to connect to our friends.
Friends make up our social network. This gets bigger when you get to know others and this is social networking.
But social networking does not end there. It also goes to specific groups like people who share a common interest or hobby. In fact, the most popular one around these days are those found online because you get to meet individuals from other places.
For this to work, someone has to organize the group and in order for it to grow, other people are invited to join. In today`s day and age that means using a website of some sort e.g a Facebook page, a Twitter account
These websites are better known as social sites and are very similar to online communities. To become a member, you ideally need to have a common interest such as on-line marketing. Once you have liked a page or sent a tweet, you will be able to socialize by reading the profile of other members and getting in touch with them.
The advantage of joining a specialized social network is that you are sure that all the members share the same interests. Before hundreds of these appeared, people had to contend with “traditional” social networking where those who join may not have to share the same interests to become a member.
But once you are in, you can develop your own social network by finding individuals who share your interests which will take some time and effort.
An interesting feature about social networking is that members who join a site can create their own webpage. This will make people who see your profile want to get to know you which expands your social network.
But social networking isn’t just about meeting new friends. Entrepreneurs and small businesses use it to establish a regular clientele and help expand their business.
Social networking has changed a lot through the years especially when people back then had to contend with chat rooms, instant messaging services and emails.
