Admit it, Internet and mobile technology is fast shaping our lives today. Our lives heavily rely on the internet to get to know what’s happening around us as well as to understand anything that we want to know as of the moment. The digital allows us to communicate with people around us even at the comforts of our homes and offices.
With the advent of social media, sharing, communicating and posting has gotten even faster and better. People readily share how-tos and other information for people online to see. We get to know people with extraordinary stories and information online.
As an entrepreneur, you can utilize the different social media when advertising your product or service. And here are different ways:
- Facebook is commonly used when you are going to share videos and photos mostly to your consumers. You can have a Facebook page for your brand where people can see updates from you via the photos and videos that you post. What’s also good about Facebook is the share aspect. Once you have something interesting posted, some people will be encouraged to share this on their own walls or the timeline of their friends.
- Twitter, due to its one hundred and forty character limitation, is mostly used as a real time promotion tool. This is good for announcing events and doing promos. You can also bring out your brand character through your tweets. People can also interact with you via their own mentions and tweets. If you have an interesting point that was shared, people can retweet your statement and that is good for your brand.
- Youtube is a tool where one can post videos. What’s good about Youtube is that when your video is uploaded there, this can be posted in your brand or your consumers’ Facebook wall and can also be tweeted. Videos are a good way to sell a product as most people are visual in nature. Youtube marketing is already popular nowadays due to the convenience it brings to the people who are interested to watch and subsequently buy the product.
- Pinterest is another tool where you can advertise your product. How? Through the people who are using the site. Pinterest becomes your channel for people to endorse your product in an organic manner.
