Over the past few years, social media has become more and more a part of everyday living. It has made its mark on many aspects of society, connecting people with another, making events come to life, and creating personal profiles for employment, to name a few. Social media has also taken the spotlight in marketing.

Technology has shown business owners and social media users that it is now possible to launch successful marketing campaigns entirely on social media. With enough preparation, social media marketing can be as effective, if not outright better, than traditional marketing methods.
What does this mean for businesses and social media? It means that social media has now become a major player in marketing. The fees to advertise a brand or a product on social media are minimal compared to budgetary requirements for a short TV spot, or a month on a billboard. And for the sheer number of people these advertisements will reach, social media is a great bargain.

Is social media the future of marketing? All evidence points to the affirmative.
