Small Business Marketing Merrimack NH
Marketing is a type of advertising for your business, and deals with public relations. Some examples are direct marketing, and social media marketing. While direct marketing through postal mail can be beneficial using an email campaign with data enrichment to address your target audience can be a quick way to disseminate your message effectively to key individuals who want your product or service, as well as entice new consumers and clients to try your wares.
In order for any media marketing campaign to be effective you need to target your primary demographic and gear your public relations to their mindset. This can be based on age, and according to a study released in 2010 by Pingdom, a web monitoring provider, 25% of social networking sites are between the ages of 35 and 44, which means this group is a mainstream media audience with both an interest in social media and serious purchasing power to which a social media marketing campaign could be directed. 57% of users are over the age of 35 which typically means stable employment.
You can further use target market data in the Pingdom study by looking at individual social media sites. Facebook has a decently balanced age distribution, but sites like MySpace and Bebo report more than 40% of users under the age of 24. Older users tend to flock to LinkedIn, Classmates.com, Delicious and Twitter. This information can help with data enrichment targeted to these age groups to create a successful marketing campaign and advertising through digital media.
