Most companies today still employ traditional marketing tactics but at the same time, have come to realize how incorporating social media into their budget may cause them to reach a broader demographic as well as increase sales. Traditional marketing, though effective, can be quite expensive, and companies have realized that. They can literally slash their marketing budget in half while still attaining a high level of productivity by using competent social media marketing tactics. Platforms such as Facebook and Instagram have billions of users and it is a great medium for advertising your product and/or service. Companies that employ a social media marketing strategy will undoubtedly have more leverage over those that don’t.
