Marketers often think of social media as just another medium to promote or advertise their products and services. What they don’t often recognize is the ability to harness social media as an interactive channel that provides feedback and can echo your marketing efforts.
Smart marketers are already taking advantage of organic content and paid advertising strategies to reach mobile users. Mobile advertising is 41% of Facebook’s revenue and Facebook has 16% marketshare of global mobile advertising. Mobile advertising is $350M (~25%) of YouTube’s revenue.
