What is social media?

Social media and online marketing use websites that are community based, this could be local, national and international, but often all of the former, to transform and broadcast media monologues into social media dialogues. Social media can take many different forms, including Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, microblogging, wikis, podcasts, pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking to name just a few.

Making use of all of these networking tools in the social media services we can provide for you, we’re the company who get real people talking about you, your products, your services, in real time and reach more people than most traditional marketing would. And that’s the beauty of social media, it’s adaptable, so whatever it is you do, we can make it work for you.

I think I understand but can you put it in some easy to understand everyday metaphor?

Sure, no problem! We’ve written a handy analogy to do just that. It’s kind of like having a post-it note up on a shop notice board but instead of just the people buying a pint of milk reading it, the whole world can see it. In fact they don’t just see it, they can comment on it, take a copy of it, share it with friends, and even directly ask questions about it. Before you know it your virtual post-it note could have been posted up in Australia and you’re being tipped as the next big thing.

There’s a great case of exactly this happening with a brilliant little company called Sugru. They got themselves written about on the highly populated online blogs BoingBoing, Wired and Core77 and when several thousand pilot products went on sale from its website they sold out in just 6 hours! This publicity allowed the company to expand by more than twenty times their original size!
