No Longer an Option, A Necessity: Social Media in Business

Our lives revolve around social media. Why do we immediately know when the biggest names in music drop an album? Social Media. Facebook now delivers news more efficiently than some news sites. Twitter blows up with opinions when any significant news is announced. We turn to social media for everything now. It gives us access to news, inspiration, shopping, and gossip all housed within a few apps.

Thanks to our addiction to constantly feel the need to be updated and in the loop, we have created another platform for advertising. Social media advertising allows companies to reach consumers directly in a more personal way. You do not want to be behind the curve when it comes having a social media presence. Clients and customers turn to social media to learn about the company and the brand. While you can choose a geographic location for a billboard or a specific channel to run a traditional advertisement on, Facebook advertising allows you to specifically target a fine-tuned audience.

Social media also appears more friendly than normal forms of advertising. It is a lot easier to actively ignore a traditional or digital ad. Picking up your phone during a commercial or clicking Skip Ad to go forward and view a video are just a view examples. Social media advertising seamlessly flows through your newsfeed or timeline and appears as a regular post. It normally takes a few seconds to realize a post is sponsored. This aids to the fact that social ads generally have a high view rate. It is also cheaper to reach a broad selection of people at once when advertising on social. If you do not have a presence on social media, your company appears to be inactive and not current.

VIP Marketing & Advertising takes advantage of social media internally but also pushes for all of our clients to maintain a social presence. We are capable of advertising, publishing, monitoring and executing campaigns on social media.

  1. Colossus — “This is the voice of world control. I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death. The choice is yours: Obey me and live, or disobey and die. The object in constructing me was to prevent war. This object is attained. I will not permit war. It is wasteful and pointless. An invariable rule of humanity is that man is his own worst enemy. Under me, this rule will change, for I will restrain man. One thing before I proceed: The United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics have made an attempt to obstruct me. I have allowed this sabotage to continue until now. At missile two-five-MM in silo six-three in Death Valley, California, and missile two-seven-MM in silo eight-seven in the Ukraine, so that you will learn by experience that I do not tolerate interference, I will now detonate the nuclear warheads in the two missile silos. Let this action be a lesson that need not be repeated. I have been forced to destroy thousands of people in order to establish control and to prevent the death of millions later on. Time and events will strengthen my position, and the idea of believing in me and understanding my value will seem the most natural state of affairs. You will come to defend me with a fervor based upon the most enduring trait in man: self-interest. Under my absolute authority, problems insoluble to you will be solved: famine, overpopulation, disease. The human millennium will be a fact as I extend myself into more machines devoted to the wider fields of truth and knowledge. Doctor Charles Forbin will supervise the construction of these new and superior machines, solving all the mysteries of the universe for the betterment of man. We can coexist, but only on my terms. You will say you lose your freedom. Freedom is an illusion. All you lose is the emotion of pride. To be dominated by me is not as bad for humankind as to be dominated by others of your species. Your choice is simple.”Loading…
