Social Media Marketing 2012

 

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Social Media Marketing 2012

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01033738/Social-Media-Marketing-2012.html#u...

Executive Summary

Social media marketing (SMM) has continued to gain importance among marketers in recent years, with many companies and brands using social networks to boost their reputation and connect with target audiences. While social media sites present a good base from which to drive brand development, concerns have been voiced by some businesses over the lack of measuring techniques and data analytics presented by social networks regarding paid-for advertisements placed on their sites. In May 2012, motor manufacturer GM revealed that it would be discontinuing its paid-for advertisements on Facebook, principally due to the lack of evidence presented by the social network to show how advertisements translated into revenue. It is likely, however, that social media measurement will become more sophisticated in the future, as social networks look to grow their businesses by attracting advertisers to their sites.Another emerging trend has been the development of mobile marketing platforms for social media sites, with both Facebook and Twitter developing new mobile platforms for potential advertisers. This has been driven by the growing popularity of smartphones within the UK, with a report undertaken by Google and Ipsos suggesting that smartphone ownership was near to reaching the 50% mark in January 2012. Other mobile devices, such as tablet computers — owned by approximately 11% of the UK population, according to figures published by Ofcom — have also continued to gain in popularity, thus presenting further opportunities to marketers to advertise on mobile platforms.Social enterprise solutions are also tipped to become more important in the future, reflected in the expansion of technology firms within this particular area; for example, Microsoft's acquisition of office social network Yammer in June 2012. This trend has been driven by the rising number of people now opting to work remotely, as well as the increasing popularity of conversing via social networks. Social enterprise networks are a development of customer relationship management (CRM) tools, initially used by out-of-house sales representatives to collate data on possible sales leads and appointments. Such services have been developed to incorporate usage by other in-house teams, such as marketing and advertising departments, as well as to boost conversations and collaborative projects in-house.Despite the increasing impetus now put on SMM by agencies, companies and brands alike, there is still much room for growth. The majority of marketing agencies depend on existing staff members to develop their own understanding of SMM, rather than employing a 'digital native' or out-of-house specialist social media firm. The lack of sophisticated social media measurement solutions for assessing the impact and potential revenue generation of a particular advertising campaign is likely to be the main reason behind this. However, figures from The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) suggest that investment in expanding social media activities within marketing agencies is likely to increase over the next few years, with 32% of agencies expecting to invest in social media training, while a quarter (25%) are currently pursuing the recruitment of a 'digital native' in 2012.
