Social Media MarketingSocial media marketing is an emerging concept that is being utilized by businesses in developing onlinecommunities for the value-added effect of connecting users. The concept itself is brilliant, in that thebusiness hosting the collaborative environment maintains control over the environment, controlling themedia, the message, and the advertising. New media marketing typically uses mechanisms such asblogs, forums and message boards, podcasts, product reviews, RSS feeds, and a support system or Wiki.The rise of social media marketing has in part presented because of the premise that traditionaladvertising is losing its effect on consumers. This is backed by statistics demonstrating an increasingtrend of consumers making their purchasing decisions based on internet research and referrals.Consumers seem to be more inclined to put stock in feedback from like-minded peers, consumers justlike themselves, rather than a corporate-funded marketing campaign disseminated via traditionaladvertising on television, radio or print.
