  • To understand why social media, and Twitter in particular, will be the engine for local marketing and advertising, we’ll explain the power of Twitter in the local community.
  • Twitter took off in April 2009 when Oprah introduced Twitter in her show
  • Now, when you watch TV or listen to the radio, every media is broadcasting their Twitter feed, it’s become more prominent as a contact vehicle than a phone # s or text messaging.

  • Twitter is poised to be used by the masses. Although most people don’t understand Twitter when they first see it thinking it’s a jumble of nonsensical conversations, they will understand its usefulness to gather information once they have experimented and used Twitter for a while.
  • Unless you’ve been living in a cave, Twitter is talked about on CNN, TV, radio and has now replaced 800#s and text messages as the preferred way to contact media organizations

  • Twitter can bring communities together. Think of Twitter as a network of individual radio stations where everybody- local merchants, consumers, businesses – have a voice in their community.
  • And just like radio, Twitter can broadcast a local business’s message across the community. Twitter is an efficient tool for real time local advertisers. And just like any advertising, local merchants need to put their best foot forward. That means – no spamming, no hard selling like an obnoxious commercial, no irrelevant Twittering about what you’re doing minute by minute. Twitter is used by local merchants as a porfessional channel to their consumer following.
  • Local print advertising is rapidly disappear - local newspapers and weeklies, Penny Savers, local coupon books. There should be new online media that will allow consumers to track local deals and sales. So far there’s nothing like this to fill the void… try searching for a local advertising circular online in your city. It’s almost impossible to find
  • That’s why the local merchants’ biggest competitor now are the online retail juggernauts like Amazon, and the online versions of retail stores like Walmart.com and BestBuy.com. At least online, you can find the best deals. Local merchants can’t compete because 1) they don’t show up in any Google searches, but Walmart.com and Amazon certainly do, and 2) you don’t know if their price is as good as Amazon, and 3) most people will not expect a local store to be price compeititve with the Amazons of the world.
