5 Investments Businesses Can Make in Social Media that Will Pay Big Dividends

I’ve had conversations with representatives from major brands and agencies who will tell me they’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a national ad campaign, but then balk at spending $30 a month on their social media efforts. Companies seem to have no problem spending money on traditional methods like coupon books, newspaper ads, mailing lists, radio and television spots, etc., but when it comes to social media, they somehow can’t get their wallets open. While you may be able to use Facebook or Twitter for free -- advertising, engaging, and tracking are not.

Can Advertisers Score on Social Media?

General Motors caused a tremor last month when it pulled its paid banner ads from Facebook. Because the timing of the news was so close to the social networking site’s IPO, there wasn’t much talk about what the world’s largest automaker’s decision might signal about the effectiveness of ads on social media as a whole, or whether other brands are likely to reconsider their social spends.

But with Facebook’s stock hitting an all-time low yesterday (it closed at US$ 26.90, the lowest price since the stock began trading at US$ 38 on May 18), some say the tremor has turned into a full-blown earthquake. It comes as a shock to many that petabytes of big, personal data don’t easily translate to dollars.
