The Rise of Social Media Marketing

Nowadays companies have grown to learn that social media can be one of the best ways in marketing their products and services online. Many large organisations have worked on growing their audience and reach across these social platforms in order to effectively market their goods and offerings.

Convenience

The recent rise in the use of social media by companies is largely down to the convenience to the end user. The majority of people have their smartphones on the go with them, be it work, school or social gatherings and a large majority of those people operate on at least one Social Media source. With easy access to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many more, it is key to companies to advertise their business across as many of these platforms as possible. Social media offers businesses a free marketing channel to users, where you can broadcast offerings, success stories and stay on trend with the latest movements in your industry. On top of this, paid advertising is also available on the majority of these platforms (in particular Facebook) and this allows you to target your posts/ads into specific audiences which you can setup using a variety of interests, demographics and locations.
