Facebook has now become synonymous with the web as more and more people around the world spend more time on Facebook than on any other website according to Nielson. This increases the utility of social media marketing websites like get Facebook Fans, which are a great way of helping your product get online recognition and thus help in viral marketing.The world of social media continues to grow and overpower all other means of communication as well as marketing. With more people turning to blogs and social networking sites, the power of Facebook becomes overwhelmingly stronger. More and more people now connect Facebook than to any other social site.
Mark Zuckerbeg disclosed at the f8 conference that Facebook active users have reached the figure of 800 million. This huge number speaks volumes about the impact that Facebook has on the online community globally. According to Nielson’s Social Media Report 70% of Internet users on top social networking sites in the US are on Facebook. The runners up Blogger and Twitter are only able to get about 23% and 12% traffic respectively. That explains why Facebook has become a favored medium of advertising and marketing. Not only it is cheap and effective but it tends to spread the word around faster.
Today no business can even imagine not having their presence on Facebook. Using Facebook to their competitive advantage has increasingly become an art that most businesses and brands are trying to master. In the absence of in-house expertise they even use the services of various other companies who specialize in that area. That has given rise to the birth of various social media marketing companies who help their clients win online consumers. Competing for Facebook fans and building closer links with their fans through Facebook’s friendly atmosphere thus is now a major marketing strategy that has become very important in addition to the traditional means of marketing.
Getting more Facebook fans is now a top priority for effective social media marketing. But the trick is not just getting the right numbers but of retaining them through engaging reviews, comments etc. in other words companies need to connect with their fans just like friends connect on Facebook. Loyal friends are another means of promoting a brand or product through word of mouth. People in their circle of friends have greater chances of becoming the brand’s fans and it becomes viral marketing. So Facebook just works like a miracle only if you know how to tap this potential source of energy for your brand.
