Some social media marketing thoughts

As I have been thinking about social media marketing I thought I would write up a kind of quick post about some thoughts.

As many of us know there are loads of social media platforms. Facebook is usually the first one that comes to mind however, there are loads more, and also sites you may not have considered can be called social network sites.

There are multiple sites that share a similar platform as FB with the friends and updates and such. There are country and niche specific versions of this. Examples could include futurenet, ibotoolbox, mewe and a bunch of others.

Now I want to touch quickly on a few others, like Twitter and Pinterest. Twitter has gained more attention through celeb use and the ability to live tweet during certain TV shows and all viewers get to get in on that action. This can be used to your favor in marketing. Pinterest and others use different angles to make the unique, like Twitter was originally a ‘microblog’, Tumblr is kind of a mix of an image and microblog platform and also still has quite a large userbase.

I guess what I want to express here is simply to open your eyes and consider your options. I currently use FB, futurenet,Instagram,tumblr, and a couple of others. There are people using these alternatives and quite possibly want to see what you may be marketing.
