What Is Social Media?
Besides being a buzz term, social media and social media marketing is functionally the process of garnering traffic, attention and engagement through social media sites such as Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others. In digital marketing parlance media is deemed paid (paid search / tv / print), owned (Facebook page, YouTube Channels / Web site) and earned (viral YouTube video / retweet / FB like). While social media may well be the currency of the day, close attention needs to be paid to assess whether it is actually generating revenue and putting money in the bank.

Social media signals, or “hearing” is hearing, understanding and responding to what consumers or prospects are saying about you. The good fosters loyalty; the bad fosters innovation; and the ugly fosters changes in business practices. The social medium is the message and a clear understanding of where you, and your competitors exist on the customer continuum is a critical early factor in determining opportunity and strategy.
