Have social networks become a necessity for business?


There is no doubt that social networks play an increasingly pivotal role for businesses. Yet some businesses question whether the time and energy spent implementing a social media strategy is an effective way to boost performance and sales. We turned to our panel of social media experts and asked them to share their opinions on how businesses can optimize results from social media marketing. Here’s what they had to say:

Terri Brooks, a certified Internet and social media marketing trainer and consultant providing education and guidance for establishing an online presence, believes that social networks have become a necessity for all businesses. Sites like Facebook, with over 600 million users, make it easy for businesses to locate and communicate with their target market. While Brooks acknowledges that it can be time-consuming to remain active within social media networks, the advantages of forming stronger relationships and broadening the customer base far outweighs the time spent. Brooks recommends that in order to lessen the amount of time spent, businesses should implement a social media strategy. Businesses can either allocate a certain amount of time each day to communicate on these networks or they can hire a social media manager to act as their voice online. It is incredibly important that businesses learn the best ways to utilize social media because, “if businesses do not take advantage of these free marketing tools, their competitors will.”

Jim3iii, a proven executive leader with extensive marketing and business development experience in Asia, Europe and North America including VC fund raising and debt financing, understands that social media marketing is both a necessity and an annoyance. Because this marketing tool is new, people can use social media both creatively and intrusively. The core value of social media is its ability to reach customers where they are and when they can take immediate action on an offer. Businesses are no longer constrained by mass advertising; instead, “offers can be targeted to people passing a store front or browsing the web.” But while social media offers a way for customers to receive immediate gratification with the best price, the etiquette between buyer and seller “is still being worked out.” Savvari, a social media and marketing consultant with a specialty in branding and print project management, believes that social networks are especially vital in the business to consumer world. Because customers can review a brand in either a positive or negative way online, businesses need to establish an online presence. Savvari explains that sites like Facebook and Twitter can both allow customers to easily contact a company through forums and make it easier for a company to track and respond to questions and comments.

Asad Zeeshan, with five years of experience as a business consultant and coach for social media marketing SEO, SEM, and Internet marketing strategies, stresses that social networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have become a necessity for businesses worldwide because social media provides a global business market to users. Social media is not only a place where people can shop or plan events, but also where B2B interactions occur. Zeeshan explains that, “businesses worldwide must show their existence by being on social media so consumers must aware of them.” If companies do not use social media to promote their business, they will likely lag behind in the market share. Ruby Gottlieb, a digital marketing specialist with experience developing media programs that help build brands by offering innovative marketing solutions, feels that while social networks are not a necessity, it is an element that is rapidly gaining importance. However, Gottlieb also adds that businesses should only invest time in social media marketing if they “are willing to do what it takes to understand it, do it right, monitor it and measure it effectively.”

Is there a place for B2B marketing in social network marketing?


As social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter play increasingly large roles for businesses, questions arise about the most effective ways B2B (business-to-business) marketing can be used to generate revenue. We turned to our panel of Zintro experts and asked them to share their knowledge. Here’s what they had to say:
An expert in marketing strategies geared towards individuals in the medical profession, Vidushi Babber, M.D., says that social networking provides the perfect opportunity for B2B marketing because by “engaging in discussions and exchanging ideas with your connections, a level of familiarity and trust develops over time.” In addition, Vidushi explains that because social networking allows the ability to share both personal and professional information, it is the ideal setting for B2B marketing to occur. In fact, Vidushi notes that businesses are most successful when done with people you know and trust – whether it be offline or online. Likewise, Asad Zeeshan, a business consultant with a specialty in social media marketing, understands that B2B marketing plays an integral role for promoting a company name and expanding networking opportunities. Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Digg, Mixx, Technorati, Stumbleupon, and Google Buzz offer great B2B marketing options, and Zeeshan points out that businesses are outsourcing other businesses via social media by analyzing their advertisement and daily updates.
Pamela Lund, principal consultant at PL Interactive, Inc. and author of “Massively Networked: How the convergence of social media and technology is changing your life,” offers insights into how B2B marketing can be used in social network marketing. Lund pictures the idea of social network marketing as an online analog for other kinds of interactions that company representatives have with potential customers – at conferences, over the phone or in respected trade journals and media. Further, Lund explains the importance of creating a blog post that “responds quickly to industry-relevant events in the news and send a tweet that includes keywords relevant to the news event.” The tweet can be read by potential B2B customers, and it can be retweeted by others and potentially referenced in other media – thereby giving visibility to a company’s expertise. In short, Lund knows that anything that a company has been doing to generate visibility, credibility and demand in the offline world can find its analog in the online world of social network marketing.
Damien Somerset, a social media and web video consultant at AFI Digital Content Lab, references his work for a client that is a Forbes International 800 company. For their campaign, he used social media in the form of a video to gather together a diverse group of thinkers from outside of their market vertical to start conversations about the distant future of the market, illustrating that their company was “innovative, thinking about the future of their market, and that they are interested in what the community has to say about trends of the future.” Somerset pinpoints that B2B marketing is not that different from B2C marketing, because at the end of the day the goal is to connect with a person and foster a relationship. Mark Strauss, President and CEO of TOGO Media, LLC, an e-commerce gateway that focuses on boosting its clients’ sales and branding while helping schools and parents better support their educational priorities, explains that B2B is a tool that can drive revenue through a number of new and previously unattainable channels. However, he notes that these channels can be subject to a number of all too often underestimated sensitivities such as personal privacy and aversion to commercialism.
