Online Marketing And Social Media

Modern marketers are clearly aware of the importance of promoting content across paid and organic channels. What is a little less clear however, is how to use social media effectively to generate leads and awareness. Social media has become an increasingly popular tool that both B2C and B2B consumers are using to digest and interact with content to conduct research. Social media allows marketers to build relationships with untapped networks, listen to the market, promote content and influence potential buyers. Here are 5 stats illustrating the importance of social media in online marketing.
