Sam Howard's curator insight, September 25, 2013 4:19 AM

The author for this one has done some research and in this day and age where everything and everyone is on some form of social media, many of the companies that he received a mail out from did not have this follow up method. As we move further forward and social media plays more and more of a role in our everyday life style companies should also do the same. The author explains how now days it is getting harder to get your message directly across and that by partnering your mass volume mail out with a link to a Facebook page or something of the sorts it will increase the success of that campaign and possibly entice new customers as they will have spent more time with your company in the for front of the customers mind, in turn resulting in greater value for money

Corey McDevitt's comment, September 25, 2013 10:11 PM
To add on from what Sam has just said this article portrayed why a business should use social media to enhance and promote sales. I was very surprised of how many small business's that were tested had not promoted their social media at all, (20 of the 51 advertising did not include their social media channels). A tip that makes complete sense but i rarely see used is that it's not enough to just have Facebook or Twitter icons on your advertisement, you need more- your actual Facebook name or Twitter name etc, or consumers will find it difficult to find you, (which is what happened with the author). This method will erase any difficulties with trying to find media channels.
Teagan Adams's comment, September 26, 2013 1:07 AM
Sam makes a good point that it is very beneficial for companies to have a Facebook or Twitter or some sort of online presence that customers can be lead to. It is another channel for them to access and interact with the brand and may suit them better then direct mail etc Corey also makes a valid point that it is very hard to find a page when all they show you is a Facebook logo, having the name really helps !
