The internet is where a lot of businesses go to reach out to customers. Makes a lot of sense when you really stop to think about it. People just aren’t spending as much time sitting in front of the television as they are in front of the computer screen or on the move with their smartphones. That’s why businesses are using social media to reach out.
Most big businesses you can think of are using some form of social media to reach customers. SyFy has a Twitter account, Toyota has a Facebook page and even internet service providers like www.satellitestarinternet.com/hughesnet-gen4.html have joined in the fun.
One of the perks of using social media to advertise is that businesses are given the opportunity to discuss what they’re all about to millions of users all over the internet. And it doesn’t cost nearly as much as going to an advertising agency and creating a television commercial. In fact, in most cases, it’s free to use social media for advertising purposes.
And while the television commercial may never entirely be phased out by the internet revolution, more and more businesses are going to continue to flock to the internet and social media when it comes to marketing.
