I know I haven’t been blogging in a while (work has been keeping me too busy) but to make it up for it here is what I believe is an excellent example of how to use Social Media to develop your brand by reaching out to your market (customers/clients).
Avril Lavigne gives a great example of social media marketing in the music industry by connecting with her fans by allowing her them in her world. She makes a simple YouTube vlog, speaks to her audience directly and gives news to them, and show them around her studio. So Simple!
In the music industry where CD sales are going down, it is increasingly important to connect with fans if you want them to buy your CDs and buy tickets to your shows. Connecting with your fans makes them care more about you so they want to encourage you and see you more. With access to music so easily nowadays on the Internet, if music fans don’t care about you, they will download your music for free and won’t care to attend your shows because they are disconnected from you.
