We at 5th Wise Monkey believe that if businesses are to grow you should embrace all forms of technology and new channels to talk to your customers.
Social Networking has literally transformed the way we communicate with our target audience, establish contacts, potential networking partners and know, with certainty, what our customer base REALLY wants.
No longer are we restricted with 'static" marketing strategies where we were unsure as to whether your market was responding to your campaigns the way you expected (or hoped for). Instead, you can now keep a steady pulse on what your customer base is interested in, what problems they need solved, and what they want from you.
Business has got personal again and the one media that everyone has said would make us less social is in fact the media where everyone is talking again. Monitoring and joining in conversations on Social Media sites is a must for any business.
Social networking sites are also an incredible resource in helping you establish credibility in your markets, as you are able to develop a presence that puts you in close contact with your customer base.
You can finally really get to know your market, evaluate potential campaigns, test the viability of markets, and of course, analyze the competition - up close and personal.
Aside from the incredible power of interacting with your customer base, social networking sites also help you in yet another way.
With the two highest ranking websites online being both focused around social communities, we can generate maximum exposure, jump-start websites, build buzz around upcoming launches and even get brand new sites indexed quickly, just by participating in these ever-growing communities.
In fact, both Facebook and Twitter are among the top 10 most popular websites online, attracting millions of users every single day, and still continue to grow at a staggering rate. It has just been announced that Facebook Users has now exceeded 500,000,000*, so if it were a country it would be the 3rd largest in the world.
