Social media is a large-scale revolution in the way your customers communicate online. Potential buyers are communicating all over the web and in order to stay competitive, Malaysian companies must get involved in the conversation.
Research shows that Facebook grows an average of 14.35 percent per month. Meanwhile, Twitter’s staggering growth to more than 19 million unique visitors is an approximate 38.5 percent growth per month. With the recent social Web explosion, it’s no doubt that Web 2.0 is a phenomenon that is causing business owners to take notice; however, you may be wondering if social marketing is for you and, if so, how you engage.
The social media marketing team at Creative5 understands that not every client will find value with presence on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube. We work with each client to match need and comfort level with opportunity and platform.
Creative5 provides companies with social media strategy, helping them set objectives to leverage new ways of communicating with their customers and building their brand presence online.
Social media marketing options are endless. Whether you need custom widgets, iPhone applications, or a low-maintenance social media platform such as Wikipedia to rank high for Google results and enhance your SEO and SERP ownership, we will work with you to choose the best options. Some companies find building custom widgets or applications as providing major returns in terms of brand recognition or sales. Other companies prefer a low-maintenance, non-interactive social media platform such as a Wikipedia, which ranks high for Google search results and provides opportunities for SERP ownership and SEO. At Creative5, our social media marketing campaigns are designed around three guiding Practices: observe where consumers are online and what they’re saying, engage in online conversations and expand your client base.
It is important to assess your company’s unique needs before attempting to implement any social media marketing campaigns.
