Why so much excitement about Social Media Marketing?

Have you been trying to understand how social media marketing can help your Tampa Bay business? This is one of the MOST COMMON questions asked by business owners across the world. Most can relate to having a profile on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube and MySpace because their competitors are are using social networks, too. On the other hand, some business owners “can’t see the forest for the trees” when it comes to expending budgets on social media marketing in this economy. Which is completely understandable considering that it has taken quite some time for companies to incorporate organic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as part of their business marketing strategies. Social Media Marketing (SMM) is another Internet Marketing technique that should take precedence in this generation of business.
