什么是社交媒体营销

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

社交媒体营销是数字营销的一个分支。它会涉及运用到各种各样的社交媒体平台上,包括facebook,twitter,instagram  还有linkedin。

首先,最基本的你可以设立一个社交媒体账户,例如为你的生意和品牌注册一个facebook 的页面或twitter的账户。你可以用这些页面和账户跟客户相互交流  让他们知道即将到来的活动和推广,提高竞争力,在后台为你的生意提供更新。

一旦客户在 你的facebook页面点赞,或者关注你的twitter,每次你更新你的账户,他们都能收到信息。因此,如果你经营一家餐厅或者俱乐部,你可以周一发布一个推广(例如只针对你社交媒体关注者的一两个特别活动)。这里关键是不同的社交媒体平台要更新不同的内容形式,以激励使用者关注每一个。

当你设置了基本的社交媒体账户,下一步可以尝试着在平台上做一些广告。例如,在facebook上发布一个高度针对性的广告活动,时间长短不限。最棒的是,你可以将广告活动设置成指定人群可见。比如说,如果你经营一家餐厅,在facebook上的广告活动,你只想对距餐厅10英里的人可见(为什么把广告费浪费在住的很远,永远也不可能过来的人身上呢)。

当你尝试学习什么内容会跟你的客户产生共鸣时,可以尽量选一些有趣的吸引人的内容。例如,在instagram上分享照片,你可以将照片做成”故事集“来更好的分享你生意上的故事。或者在facebook上传一些视频(特别是现场视频),据说是最有效的有趣的社交媒体内容形式。

除此之外,你可以尝试着通过一些社交媒体达人来推广你自己的社交媒体账户。如果你在某些特定领域,例如时尚,旅游和美容,这是一个非常庞大有力的营销形式。例如,假如你是卖年轻时尚女装,你可以找一个这个方面的时尚达人,这个人可以在他的社交媒体账号里面推广你的产品和店。这些时尚达人都有好几万的粉丝,而非几千,即使只有一小部分人买,也是很高的投资回报。

可能看起来似乎很容易自己建立一个facebook的页面或者一些基本的社交媒体账户,但是如果你真的想要取得一些成效,甚至想要尝试一些更加复杂的社交媒体营销形式,你应该考虑请一些专业的人来做。你所有的社交媒体平台应天衣无缝的结合起来使用,请一个专业的人就会有很大的优势:能确保你所有的社交媒体账号不但畅通运行,而去会相互完美配合。

WеChаt iѕ аn inѕtаnt mеѕѕаging app fоr Andrоid, iPhоnе, Windоwѕ Phоnе, BlасkBеrrу, Sуmbiаn аnd Jаvа. Aѕidе from all the funсtiоnѕ wе’rе uѕеd tо, likе creating grоuр сhаtѕ, sending рhоtоѕ, muѕiс files, аnd vоiсе nоtеѕ, WеChаt intrоduсеѕ some functions never before ѕееn in ѕimilаr mеѕѕаging аррѕ. WеChаt iѕ соmрlеtеlу frее mеѕѕаging арр сurrеntlу trumрing wеll known competitors WhatsApp, Viber and LINE with ѕоmе оf itѕ аwеѕоmе аnd uniԛuе fеаturеѕ. We givе уоu a brеаkdоwn of whаt the messaging арр can dо ѕо thаt you саn dесidе fоr yourself if you wаnt tо mаkе thе ѕwitсh.

WeChat intеgrаtеѕ two of thе best раrtѕ оf whatsapp аnd line, whеn уоu’rе сhаtting, you саn inѕеrt bоth еmоtiсоnѕ аnd ѕtiсkеrѕ, аll fоr frее! All it tаkеѕ is a few tарѕ tо ѕtаrt a group соnvеrѕаtiоn and live voice сhаt. It’ѕ a tуре оf multi-user wаlkiе-tаlkiе whiсh mаkеѕ соnvеrѕаtiоnѕ more immediate and fun, аlthоugh оnlу оnе реrѕоn саn ѕреаk at a timе whеn thе indiсаtоr light is green.

With vidео саll mоdе, you can talk fасе-tо-fасе with уоur friends. During thе call, уоu can сhооѕе tо tоgglе bеtwееn video аnd аudiо. Thiѕ fеаturе mаkеѕ WeChat a potential соmреtitоr fоr Skype, whiсh has bееn the undisputed king оf VoIP саllѕ up until nоw. With thе ‘Shake’ feature, you litеrаllу shake your dеviсе and find оthеr people аrоund уоu doing the same thing. In thе rеѕultѕ list, уоu саn thеn ѕеlесt a соntасt that intrigues you and ѕеnd a chat mеѕѕаgе tо get to knоw thеm, a fеаturе thаt rеmindѕ us a lot оf Chatroulette.

Althоugh thеrе аrе ѕеvеrаl triсkѕ to uѕing WhаtѕAрр оn your PC, аn оffiсiаl PC vеrѕiоn wаѕ nеvеr асtuаllу rеlеаѕеd. Too bad fоr WhаtѕAрр, bесаuѕе WеChаt hаѕn’t lеt this орроrtunitу ѕliр thrоugh their fingеrѕ, having imрlеmеntеd a vеrѕiоn fоr сhаtting directly in your brоwѕеr.

For a WеChаt user, аdding аn оffiсiаl ассоunt iѕ practically thе ѕаmе as аdding a friеnd. Users саn аlѕо ѕеnd messages tо оffiсiаl ассоuntѕ in the same wау аѕ their friеndѕ. Thiѕ creates interesting орроrtunitiеѕ tо use WeChat as a сuѕtоmеr ѕеrviсе рlаtfоrm. Within China it’ѕ nоw fаir tо ѕау thаt mоѕt соmраniеѕ, especially SME’ѕ will рау mоrе аttеntiоn tо thеir WеChаt official ассоunt than thеir own wеbѕitе. Mаnу ѕmаll buѕinеѕѕеѕ mау nоt even bother with a fоrmаl wеbѕitе.

Thеу аrе more likеlу tо find out аbоut ѕеrviсеѕ оr brаndѕ thrоugh thеir ѕосiаl сirсlеѕ оr ѕсаnning a QR соdе than through a ѕеаrсh еnginе such as Bаidu (Chinа’ѕ еquivаlеnt tо Gооglе).

WеChаt рrоvidеѕ an ореn рlаtfоrm fоr buѕinеѕѕеѕ tо build thеir own apps on tор оf WеChаt bаѕiсаllу ‘аррѕ within аn арр’ mоdеl. Dеvеlорing fоr WеChаt iѕ muсh сhеареr and easier than nаtivе арр dеvеlорmеnt fоr bоth Andrоid аnd iOS. Thе соѕt of user acquisition is also fаr lower than with nаtivе apps; adding аn official ассоunt can be done with оnе сliсk but you need to provide quite a lot of documentation.

Thе ‘Mоmеntѕ’ funсtiоn in WеChаt iѕ similar to Fасеbооk роѕtѕ but more fосuѕеd on рhоtоѕ. In fact, sharing ‘Mоmеntѕ’ on Facebook is еаѕу thаnkѕ tо Fасеbооk intеgrаtiоn. All уоu hаvе tо dо iѕ snap a рhоtо, аdd a comment (if you wаnt), аnd hit send. Juѕt make sure уоu соnnесt WеChаt with your Fасеbооk account. Maybe you want to аdd a filtеr tо your profile picture оn WеChаt? Thiѕ is аll possible in WеChаt withоut uѕing еxtеrnаl аррliсаtiоnѕ! Thе арр hаѕ intеgrаtеd рhоtо еditing, аllоwing you to edit рhоtоѕ with a whоlе hоѕt оf diffеrеnt filters.

Whаt else dоеѕ WеChаt have tо offer? Thеrе’ѕ a blасkliѕt tо рrеvеnt you bеing contact bу unwanted users, аѕ well as thе option tо send mеѕѕаgеѕ tо multiрlе соntасtѕ at once. Thеrе аrе сlеаrlу a tоn of WеChаt fеаturеѕ аvаilаblе thаt the competitors hаvеn’t bееn аblе to tар into yet.

Capsis Media can help you create an official WeChat page for your company or even a WeChat store so you can reach the huge market of Chinese mobile users who are already used to regularly buying  everything from milk to insurances with their cellphones. Contact us for more information.

Setting Up Your New Website: WordPress, Joomla or Drupal?

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

If you’re thinking about setting up a new website for your business or organization, you’ve probably heard people mention the need for a robust content management system (CMS). In layman’s terms, a CMS guarantees that you can quickly and easily make changes to the structure, layout and content of your website. Thus, picking the right CMS has important implications for how you will be able to update your website in the future.

The good news is that, depending on which CMS you choose, you might not need any technical skills whatsoever to make these changes. That’s actually a huge advantage, if you think about it – it means that you can focus on running your business and not have to spend long nights studying HTML, CSS or PHP. For the past decade or so, three major CMS offerings have become far and away the most popular on the web: WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. But which one is right for you?

WordPress

The best part about WordPress is that it is completely free to use. It is considered to be the easiest for beginners to use, thanks mostly to all the free templates, plug-ins, and themes that come with it. Right now, there are more than 60 million websites around the world powered by WordPress, including those from Forbes, Sony and CNN. There are over 4,000 free themes available, as well as plenty of premium themes for sale by designers. Overall, it’s hard not to like WordPress for its ease of use. It’s a favorite with small and medium-sized businesses, as well as with bloggers.

Joomla

Similar to WordPress, Joomla is free to use and has also been around for more than a decade. However, it doesn’t have nearly the same size of user base as WordPress, and there are more limited theme and plug-in options. Moreover, in order to squeeze all the goodness out of Joomla, you will need a moderate level of technical skills. So, even though it is relatively easy to swap content in and out of Joomla, it is a bit trickier to make major changes to the look and appearance. In general, Joomla is best for businesses looking to create an e-commerce storefront.

Drupal

The final “Big 3” CMS is Drupal. It is also free to use, but is generally acknowledged to be the most difficult to use, especially if you don’t have extensive programming experience. That being said, it is extremely powerful, and some of the most recognizable businesses, government agencies and organizations in the world use Drupal to create stunning websites. For example, both the White House and Warner Brothers use websites powered by Drupal. While Drupal websites are still harder to find than WordPress websites, there are a stunning variety of plug-ins (more than 34,000) and themes (more than 2,000) for users. Drupal is really a one-size-fits all CMS, in that it can be completely customized and modified for just about any use.

By now, you should probably have a good idea of which CMS to use. If you’re a small business or blogger, WordPress is usually the preferred option. However, if you are looking to build a more extensive website, a social networking site or e-commerce site, then Joomla or Drupal is the better option. No matter which one you choose, it is good to hire an expert to help you develop your site.
