Social networking has become the number one way for small business to connect to the local population.
To get noticed you need to be seen and found on Google.
Getting your website to the first page of Google can be very difficult in this rough economy. Using social networking like Facebook or Google+ is the best way to start your climb up the Google ladder. The days of generating back-links on article sites or in forums is all but dead as Google has changed its algorithms so that the Black-hat marketers no longer rule the serps on Google.
Social-media marketing has also seen a lot of changes with the amount of resources, as well as the practices that involved it. Here are some notable changes which some renown study-based groups such as Simmons New Media, the Pew Research Center, have come up with.
However, it was only around the years 2005 to 2006 where the common term social networking peaked, with the prominence of social networking sites such as Multiply and Friendster dominated the local online community. The popularity of this fast moving online culture captured millions of local online users and redefined the normal communication process among people.
Average age demographics were also first noted as that the majority of subscribers during that time were mere teenagers. It was an expected result as it was always assumed that youngsters were more adept in using the computer, internet, and technical stuffs than the older ones.
However as the years have passed, there has been a very steady decline in the dominance of the use of these SNS by teenagers. By just 2009, it was observed and recorded that the shift to the average user rose to around 30 years old. While this may be a unexpected outcome this may also be attributed to the fact that more and more local businesses have found very good use with using this method for their profit and business outcome objectives.
According to other business studies as well, this social marketing phenomenon may be attributed to the increasing idealization of conducting business that is specifically targeted to a certain online community sharing the same interests. This is a better way to have the already existing target population by using those currently subscribed to the social network services.
Also in relation to this business interaction and integration into these social networks have been climbing greatly as the top dominant age group was determined to have risen to those just above thirty years of age. The Social updates have started to share with the business-related updates on these networking sites as well.
