Social Media Marketing

Using the Social Media to marketing, brand or promote your product / services is a good idea. However, it needs to be done correctly. There are many factors to take into consideration. Social Media, when done correctly, should be used to communicate with your target market as well as compliment your brand or marketing initiatives.

One of the biggest pitfalls I have seen with Social Media being used as a marketing tool is the lack of resources allocated to do it right.

Some of the sites that fall into the Social Media environment:
