Social Media: Fad?
Miami, Florida 3/11/2010 05:30 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)
If you want to buy any product, from cell phones to ski vacation packages, you can find multiple product-specific sites that include reviews, blogs, news, and recommendations. So if 78% of consumers trust peer recommendations, only 14% of consumers trust advertisements, and the ROI on traditional TV campaigns is only 18%, why would any company not invest in Social Media? Internet and web-based technologies are used by all generations and are influencing every aspect of our lives. It isn’t a fad; it’s a fundamental shift in the way we communicate. Social Media has even overtaken Pornography as the number one activity on the Web!
Some industries haven’t taken full advantage of the many benefits of Social Media. The Finance Community has still not tapped the tremendous opportunities of Social Media. Unless you want to wade through the sea of misinformation on Yahoo or Google Finance Boards, Jason Bishara, former Finance Executive, has created a new platform www.linkedFA.com to aggregate essential information. The website allows Financial & Insurance Professionals and Investors to collaborate, grow business, and increase profits. This community of collaboration provides a Social filtration that weed out incorrect and incomplete information while providing the compliance tools and resources mandated by the industry. Check out www.linkedfa.com for more information.
