Ideas
Strategy

Creating a basic social media presence is easier than getting your audience to actually do something.

Your strategy may call for the building of an opt- in list however remember that people may have preferences as to the nature of the relationship. Messaging can be by way of SMS, e-Mail or by way of a blog, website or communicator app. We offer all these options.

Community building is only the first part of social marketing. Using that community to drive sales, propagate marketing, or to fine tune operations via feedback is the true power of social media.

One way to excite customers is to get the B2C community to collectively host awards events at which prizes marketed by a group of B2C businesses are awarded. Simply put 10 prizes are better than one. Suppliers can offer exclusive discounts or they can offer products and services.

Not only does a contest build buzz organically but the requirement for exciting contests with valuable prizes to be shared from platforms where it is quick and easy to do will boost the chances of the contest going viral.
