Social media is a form of new media that allows for interactive and a broader forum.We will go over the history of Social Media and how Social media has emerged in the corporate world.We will discuss other business which have benefited from incorporating new mediaI will show you some possible oppourtunities and benefits of using New media for Southern TechnologiesWe will have a brief period of time to go over questions .
Social Media is a form of new media that had emerged onto the business on-line community helping to develop and promote business through the digital world. Social media is often an instant form of communicationwhich can encourage two-way conversations between businesses. Social Media is instant and can encourage two-way conversations with other businesses leading to a increase of interest of the company and more brand awareness of Northwestern technologies services. If we can generate attention to the company website , Sales will increase ThreeC’sBrothers understands that Social Media technology enables multimedia delivery channels beyond traditional print and broadcast advertising.
Bulletin Board System (BBS) began in the 1970s usually for business these BBS’s were accessed over telephone lines via a modem, and were the first way for business to conduct online meeting. Users could communicate with a central system where they could download files or games and post messages to other users. CompuServe one such BBS began as a business-oriented mainframe computer communication solution, but expanded into the public domain in the late 1980’sAOL (America Online) really began to connect people with personalized forums and member created communities.
LinkedIn was, and still is, a networking resource for businesspeople who want to connect with other professionals. In fact, LinkedIn contacts are referred to as “connections.” Today, LinkedIn boasts more than 175 million membersFacebook has almost reached 1 billion users . Classmates.com has 540 million registered accounts. Social Media is on the rise.
Currently Facebook is thought to be the leader in social networking. Developed in 2004 was launched to the public in 2006. The 2007 launch of the Facebook Platform made it possible for third-party developers to create applications that work within Facebook itself. Almost immediately after being released, the platform gained a massive amount of attention. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of apps built on the platform . One example of an ecommerce website that’s taking this principle to the next level is ShoeDazzle.com the discount footwear retailer, with its custom Style Profile app. Facebook also came up with the innovative Like and share applications , which allow instant communications between a on-line consumer and companies.
Marketing your online business through social media websites can launch Northwestern Technologies to the B2BCommunity.Google decided in 2011 to launch the social network: Google+. Google's G+’s Hangouts feature allowed users to enter live video chats with other online friends. I am sure you have heard of U-Tube. We need to make sure we use the U-Tube platform to raise company brand awareness.
Social Media Sites are here to stay, Twitter, and App.net, a developer-friendly alternative to Twitter. App.net and other sites like Disporian and other open source, community-run social networks, have all found success since their launches and continue to develop. We need to optimize our website and links to it. Today’s e-commerce websites are integrating social sharing tools and Northwestern Technologies could utilize this to promote closer relationships with other business. We need to make sure we have as many outlets to the media as possible. We need to have an easy to navigate website. We need to create or update any existing Facebook pages, Goggle + accounts and Twitter
Social media can be incredibly empowering for Northwestern Technologies to reach out to your customers and other businesses. Use of social media gives the ability to engage and connect without much cost. You can directly contact other businesses via new media instantly.
That concludes our presentation. I will now open the floor to any questions you may have. I look forward to working with Northwestern Technologies to launch your new media campaign. Thank You
