Insite Advice has great experience in creating socially driven websites for many different industries. We integrate the social media right into your website, allowing the vast network of socially connected users to interact directly to your site. This social feature increases the traffic and buzz around your organizations presence on the web. When one of your fans likes your business or organization, the rest of their friends get notified. In return they are exposed to your company and potentially become new fans, and then the process starts all over again.
The social media platform also allows you to connect to your customers like never before. You can see their names, send them a personalized message, or even become their friend. This aspect of friendship is extremely impactful to the perception of the service of your business. A business that has an updated, fresh social media site is more likely to connect with its customers and see repeat visits.
With our technology, you also can update your site with blog posts, articles, or whatever content you want and see those changes automatically posted to your social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. This dramatically reduces the time to keep your entire online presence up to date and allows for more time to do things you want to.
When you gain the advantage of being socially aware and involved as a company, you grow. One of the best ways of connecting with customers is with real life comments and people you can see. If you chose to become more involved in social media in St. Louis, choose Insite Advice. You will come out with a better understanding of your customers and you will likely see increased business.
The HistorySocial networking has become a huge part of our everyday lives. It has been around forever, but only recently has the availability of the web and the curious nature of people come together to form the big social networking websites that we know of today. They are based on the inherent nature of people to want to know what is going on around them. This is what drives these websites to become even more prominent in todays culture.
Facebook was created in the dorm room of Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard University. Along with his roommates, Zuckerberg put out the first version of Facebook in 2004. Quickly the website spread like wildfire around the campus of Harvard and eventually was opened up to more colleges around Boston. Before you could click a "Like" button, Facebook was available nation-wide to college students, spreading the word from campus to campus along the way. Before the end of 2008, Facebook had 100 million global users and within the next two years achieved 500 million. This made Facebook one of the most visited websites in the world. Currently, Facebook is valued at over $50 billion making it the third largest US web company behind only Google and Amazon. Recently, a movie was made about the beginnings of Facebook called The Social Network. Facebook has become part of the American Culture, with seemingly every company and person having some sort of profile on the website. It has even become an alternative to some company websites.
The other big player in the game of social networking is Twitter. Twitter has been described as " a social network, [that] revolves around the principle of followers. When you choose to follow another Twitter user, that user's tweets appear in reverse chronological order on your main Twitter page. If you follow 20 people, you'll see a mix of tweets scrolling down the page: breakfast-cereal updates, interesting new links, music recommendations, even musings on the future of education." Basically, Twitter is a way for you to share with the world (in 140 characters or less) what is on your mind. Twitter was founded in 2006 by St. Louis native Jack Dorsey. Currently, Twitter has more than 175 million users worldwide and those users generate more than 65 million tweets every day. Twitter is a popular way for companies to make quick releases to the public. The name Twitter was named after Dorsey came across the word which is defined as "a short burst of inconsequential information," and "chirps from birds." This is exactly what Twitter is all about.
