We can already see that 2010 is shaping up to be a really good year for online business services and Internet marketers globally. In addition to the arrival of social media front and centre, more and more people are going to be getting online, finding the Internet and interacting due to advances in technologies associated with smart-phones; this will all result in higher spending than before. There are few industries as dynamic as Internet marketing and even fewer that have stood up so well during the Great Recession. Now is the time to consider your position and how you are going to get your fair share of the pie represented by Internet marketing, through looking keenly at where you are right now with respect to your website development, and what you plan to do as 2010 unfolds.
Here we show you a number of useful ideas to help you consider. It’s easy to be somewhat overwhelmed by all the options available, and it’s also important to remember that help is available as you strive to understand where you are going and arm yourself with the best backup to help you succeed.
What can you say about Facebook? This must be a staple of any online marketer’s mix. The platform has really taken the world by storm and definitely piqued the interest of the general public, essentially eclipsing an embarrassed and much-more-established MySpace in popularity. It took less than nine months for Facebook to reach 100 million users and it is said that if it represented a country, it would be the fourth most populated in the world! Wherever you are in your Internet marketing aspirations, a Facebook presence must be priority one…
To really get the most out of Facebook, create a company page. Many of us are familiar with what a personal page layout looks like, but to start a good social interaction with prospects and current customers, devote a presence solely to your organisation. Here, you can associate with Twitter, and other social media sites and propel your blog into the mix. You should be active in many different social media accounts for best effect. Within Facebook, you will be able to create pages relevant to events and can invite all interested parties and prospects, be it to a unique sales event at your store, a multimedia event such as a webcast online or other.
Facebook must be an ongoing proposition, as you cannot just set it up and then forget about it. Just as a blog is not very effective unless you update it, you will not keep the interest of prospects and fans unless you keep up with your Facebook presence regularly, ideally on a daily basis. If you really want to fully realise all of these benefits, but you just don’t have the time, consider looking into the online business services of a highly-adept, executive virtual assistant.
