Hi Stacy, thank you for your feedback. I agree that Social Media Marketing can be managed by one person. As you mentioned, single marketers do need to outsource some aspects of it, like graphic design and web development; that's exactly what I meant under the term of the "team". The "team" can be in the house (like you said, for larger companies) or outsourced to various companies that handle different aspects. The term "team" does not necessarily refer to one group on site. I remember the time when one graphic designer could handle a complete campaign, without outsourcing any aspect of it. I would say that technology nowadays made things more complicated for small marketers and very small companies...
Thank you Samuel, I agree! Businesses are looking for new, modern, and effective ways to grow and Social Media is here to do just that. It will help businesses connect with their potential customers locally and worldwide by using modern technology in addition to the old marketing techniques. I think businesses are ready to go where their customers are...
Sure thing! Beware is good advice. Thank you Dennis.
Thank you for your comment Hannah. That's interesting information.
Good to know that schools are aware of the Social Media marketing impact.
I agree Tim, great article! Social Media is a new media outlet and it should be taken seriously. Due to the modern digital/online age, small businesses are embracing technology alongside the Internet to propel their sales and marketing; however, many of them do not know where to start, or how social media can be leveraged into creating customer engagement and lead generation. That’s where professional Social Media services will come into focus. Just like with any other media.
Thank you very much for your feedback!
