Viral in Nature: Capturing the Power of Social Media
Less than two decades ago, when a business aimed at marketing and promoting their products or services to a specific audience, the most viable and practical option were print marketing, television advertisements and radio promotions.
Back then, websites were making way into the mainstream world of business at a snail’s pace. And only a meagre number of marketers were willing to hesitantly board the internet train. There was a cloud of uncertainty hovering over the potential ability of the world wide web and businesses were reluctant to take the jump.
Fast forward to 2018 and the approach amongst businesses to market their product or services have changed in a drastic fashion.
Today, websites for businesses have become more than just an option or a choice, it has become a necessity. Search Engines like Google have become a book of infinite information. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter have become a part of our daily lives to keep up with our friends, families, and loved ones.
This evolving landscape of the internet has opened the doors of opportunity for individuals, marketers and businesses. It has paved the way for businesses to market their products, build a brand and reach out to customers at every corner of the world in a targeted manner.
However, amidst all these potential opportunities, using social media to one’s advantage and leveraging its true power isn’t equivalent to a child’s play. It takes years of experience and a requisite level of proficiency to grab hold the opportunity that the internet, and particularly social media, boasts.
