With the ever-increasing presence of Social Media in society, it is has long since been accepted that any business must have an effective social media marketing strategy to provide them with a well-defined position on the various social media sites and networks.

The difficulty, however, lies in choosing on which platforms to focus your marketing efforts. Yes, Facebook and Twitter are both great and powerful but, just like a billboard loses it's effectiveness when positioned right next to 10 others, it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish your marketing efforts on the major social media sites. This necessitates that any business wishing to grow and prosper must widen their scope when it comes to social media marketing and strategy. The time has come for marketers to look for new and innovative ways to utilise the power of social media.
