5 Social Media Marketing Trends For 2014 | My Social Media Ghost | Scoop.it

A recent study conducted by Adobe showed that social media marketing remains the most important marketing area of concern for the upcoming three years. So while social media now has reached a certain level of maturity beyond the phase of “the shiny new toy with bells and whistles”, where should marketers keep an eye for the upcoming year? Will Facebook still remain king of the social media hill or will there be (another) revolution that most aren’t seeing coming? Here are five social media marketing trends to look out for in 2014.

Proven tactics to win the online marketing race:
I say race, because in the online world, that’s exactly what it is. A continuous effort towards achieving marketing goals while the competition is doing the same thing. That might seem ominous, but think of it as something you spend a reasonable, scheduled amount of time on consistently. If you keep at it, and work smart, you will win.

UniqueWebsites's comment, July 9, 2013 6:01 AM
Thanks for this. I noticed you added Linkedin - do you see this just as a way of making personal contacts for job offers - or is there any value for SEO? As far as I can tell, individual's profiles - and therefore the links that they share - are not indexed via Google. Would appreciate advice as I'm still quite new to Linkedin. Also, would you "drive" visitors to your personal Linkedin profile or to your company Linkedin page?
