Social Media Evolution

December 23, 2008

Social Media evolved because of Google’s new search model. I don’t know how many people in India are aware of this. I guess very few people know about it.

Even if people know about it, I would still request everybody to read it patiently as it has other connections to it.

Let me start with Search Engines. Google is the most popular & the best possible search engine available currently on internet space. There are other search engines such as yahoo, msn, ask.com but not as popular as Google.

Earlier Google used to search only WebPages & Documents. Ever since Google improved their search model, it can now start searching WebPages, PDF, Video, Audio, Images documents such as word documents, PPT, RSS feeds etc.

Now this might help you to link to my older posts. Why Social Networking, blogging, video sharing, photo sharing, social news are popular because all these are searchable in the new Google search model. And we all know that how many people rely on Google for information. Right from the product to the personality we are totally depended on Search engines.

Naturally, your profiles, videos, audio, documents can be searchable through easily. Hence Search Engine marketing such as bidding of keywords, sponsored links need not have to be taken seriously. The only important one must follow is to be present and active on these platforms in terms of Participation, conversations, updations etc. So why not take advantage of it and adopt best possible online marketing tactics

Lot of people in India does not know about how these platforms appear in Google search engine in your regular searches. Hence may not be able to connect themselves with the new media. The fact is all these Medias are so popular now that if you have a profile or a blog on any of these social media platforms, they start appearing in Google.

Now doesn’t it sound interesting?

Digital Marketing has tremendous potential in India. Provided one should be a smart marketer to understand and start using it. Especially during this recession, one needs to think smart and use this media as an advantage as it cuts down you advertising budgets drastically.

By writing these posts on Social Media in Indian Scenario, I am trying to build a connection between the traditional media and online media. So, our Indian marketers understand it quickly and are the first one to use it and create their long lasting existence.

Abroad most of the brands spend only on social media marketing and other digital Marketing methods.

My next post will talk about the current PR and advertising media and how it has been helpful to us for so long & what are their loop holes and how social media acts as a superior media to it.

Friends I am not using any technical words in all my articles just to avoid creating confusions. My articles are purely for any layman to understand how can digital media be a one stop solution for marketing and communication about their products, services, individuals, entertainment, Non government organizations, schools, Exhibitions, Logistics, Churches, Trusts, small entrepreneurs, Niche verticals, such as commodities, engineering etc.

Bloggers making a Mark

December 15, 2008

Ever since people started discovering about Social Media platforms in India, things have changed drastically in Indian Web world.

We had discussed about the use of Social Media in India, which would take lot of time to use it as a practice around six months ago. Within no time things have changed and it looks that people in India are getting acquainted to this media very soon.

Nowadays, ever since the Terror Attacks have taken place in Mumbai. All the Blogs are flooded with excellent posts and News. There have been continuous news postings on the Blogs which were also covered in the News Publications.

Now this sounds very very Interesting. haaann……………………… WHATT.. THE BLOGS WERE ALSO COVERED IN THE NEWS PUBLICATIONS……such as Mumbai Mirror, Mid Day ……. OH MY GOD. Don’t you think this sounds exciting…

Well Social Media is really booming in INDIA. I have found there are so many videos uploaded on YOU TUBE on Mumbai Terror attacks, News Media clippings from Pakistan Media. Social Networking sites are flooded with News groups voicing against Mumbai Terror attacks. I could see majority of people glued to these kind of sites expressing their opinions, views, comments, solutions etc.. It means this is happening now in India.

There has been so many articles on Individual Blogs discussing about Terror attacks. So many people had visited those blogs turning out those blogs to be the most popularly viewed blogs. Even the individual Blogger’s picture appeared in the Newspapers. What else one can expect now…

We were always skeptical about Social Media, whether the Brands would really take up this media seriously. After, all this.. i could only say that its time to take none other media than social Media Seriously.

So now we all know that majority of people do discuss about a brand, service, person etc. There has been so many things happening in the online world. I am sure in the coming month or two. Corporates will be very much inclined towards the idea of using online space to promote their businesses. Considering the fact of recession in India, this is the only inexpensive media available which can drive your marketing communications to millions of people.

JAGO INDIA JAGO………. 🙂
