It shouldn’t surprise anyone, but a new study surveying 900 marketers shows that marketers are heavily invested in social media, to the tune of 88 percent using at least one social outlet.
What is a little surprising is that 72 percent of respondents claim they have only been using these resources for a few months or less.
According to the study, the top social sites in use by marketers are Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn, and Facebook, in that order.
This suggests that long-standing rumors are true, that Twitter is flooded with marketers marketing to other marketers.
Some other notable findings from the study include; the biggest group of those new to social media marketing are sole proprietors.
Those aged 60-69 are more likely to be just getting started, while those aged 30-39 are most likely to use the tactic.
Respondents cite “gaining attention for the business” as the number one benefit of social media marketing, followed by improving traffic and growing marketing lists.
More than half of respondents reported a rise in search engine rankings as a major benefit of social marketing.
A significant majority of respondents believe that social media marketing reduces their their overall marketing costs.
