Social Media Marketing (SMM)

Social media is quickly becoming the primary way content is shared.

ICT Trends: Market Shifts

SMM refers to the process of brand marketing and gaining website traffic or attention through social media sites.

SMM programs usually center on efforts to create content that attracts attention and encourages readers to share it with their social networks. The resulting electronic word of mouth (eWoM) refers to any statement consumers share via the Internet about an event, product, service, brand or company. When the underlying message spreads from user to user and presumably resonates because it appears to come from a trusted, third-party source, as opposed to the brand or company itself, this form of marketing results in ‘earned media’ rather than ‘paid media’.

SMEs can use social networking sites as a promotional technique. They can create a local social community and advertise specials and deals there. Such messages encourage other locals to follow the business on the sites in order to obtain the promotional deal. In the process, the business earns brand visibility and promotes itself.
