Social Networking (SMO)

What is Social Networking and Social Media Optimization?

Think of it like a cocktail party.  You mingle and chit chat with people that would wouldn’t normally hang out with.  Talk about yourself a little bit and find out about what others are doing.

But instead of it being at a house, its online.  Instead of it being this Friday from 6.30 to 11pm, it’s 24×7.

Social Networking can be used to connect with customers online.  But its a very different approach than traditional marketing or even SEO or SEM.

SMO (Social Media Optimization) is extremely time consuming, even more than SEO.  But the payoff can be huge.  And unlike SEO, the gratification can come quick, leading to instant sales.

If done properly it doesn’t come across as marketing… it’s connecting with a large group of people who look to you as an expert in your field or an expert on a particular subject that relates to your industry.

Social Networking is not for every company.  It lends itself to lifestyle products and artistic companies.
