One way communication is not longer efficient and effective enough in promotion mix, especially the technology generation, internet, social media and smart phone has been used by majority of population. The interaction between marketer on social media and consumers become extremely important. This article suggested 26 marketing tips on social media that can help marketer to maintain brand equity on social platform.  

The first 6 tips are all concentrate on “call to action”. Marketers need to grab consumer attention and encourage consumer reaction on it post, such as share the page, click page and join us.  The power of the social media is that once one consumer like or shares the page it will also appear on his/her friends and family page, the message will be spread significantly and increase message visibility.

This post holds lots of valuable information based on social media marketing. Traditional media marketing focuses on one-way communication whereas social media marketing focuses on two-way communication, which is based on growing relationships between organization and business. As the article states organizations need to engage with customers rather than market to them – customers need to be incorporated within the marketing campaign, which will engage them, motivate them and more importantly build strong relationships. With social media becoming more and more dominant in everyday lifestyles it is important for marketers to take this on board and communicate messages through these social channels.
With social media consumers also have the opportunity to share information they believe to be important. This is very valuable as this opens up further communication between consumer to consumer by delivering messages they have taken away from an organization. If information is positive this will then begin to build another relationship for the organization.

The basics of any social media account can be quickly mastered, but figuring out the heights and widths of all the images you will need to make your social outposts look awesome is a time-consuming and, unfortunately, often instantly forgettable business.

And it gets a heck of a lot more complicated when you start rolling out your Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube channels, and more.

Visual Storytelling: Using the Right Social Media Photos to Increase Customer Engagement | Social Media |

As the cliché said, “a picture is worth a thousand words". Putting quality picture can be a better way to demonstrate a company than a thousand words of story. This article illustrates five key points of how to make a right picture on social media to promote customer engagement. But I have one thing to add up. I think it is important to company to be honest. From a customer's view, it is more important to see a picture that can honestly show what the product is rather than see a mass of fancy pictures that has been photoshopped. The "right picture" is not only producing the best-looking picture to catching consumers’ eyes nut also delivers facts to customers. For example, sometime I bought something from online shopping site, but when the product delivered, I found it was not the same thing shows on the website picture, and most of time I may complain but I never back to that store again. So from a customer’s view, I would like to engage more with a company that tell me the truth and this is also a good way to increase customer engagement for a company.

Catrina Yang: I totally agree with you. Photo is obviously a good way for the company to promote its product/service because a good picture is worth a thousand words. Photo is everywhere nowadays, billboards and posters on the street, apps in smart phones and tablet PC. Company should use the appropriate photo to present its features which can improve the customer engagement

Catrina Yang: pictures or images are a great way in engaging consumers however not any photo will do instead the photo or image you choose to use should always relate back to the message you are trying to get across to your consumers about your product or service you have on offer. as the cliche goes "a picture is worth 1000 words" this is true many people can engage an relate more visually compared to reading a article or blog about a product. This is a good article on the importance of customer engagement.
