AVON on Twitter.

So I am new to Twitter. I didn’t want an account, and I didn’t need one because I already am signed up for the ever-so-popular Facebook. I didn’t see a reason to join the ranks of Tweeters because I barley use my Facebook and I knew that I wouldn’t use Twitter. I used to think that it was just another site where people can ramble on, and on, and on, about their life and I thought to myself – why do i care? Now i see Twitter through a different perspective. I see it as a great tool for businesses to advertise their products and services, to connect with their customers and get feedback, and let’s face it businesses have to stay with the times to be successsful. This week’s assignment was to find a buisness that is using Twitter and talk about how their using there account so I chose Avon because I buy from them frequently and I wanted to use this as an oppurtunity to find out more about the company.

Avon’s Twitter account is frequently updated and they stay active with their Tweets. There Tweets mainly focus on their new and exsisting products, their new representattives, their ambassadors, beauty tips, and fashion. Basically there talk about everything they are involved from makeup to clothing.

They engage their audience by posting things of interest like the Emmy’s, but they post about things that are related to their product. So for an example they posted about the host and how she was turning heads. They are also engaging with their audiences beacuse they have a sidebar that shows recently posted photos. Some of the photos are of their products

In my opion they use there account well because they post information about their products keeping customers up to date and informed of upcoming products. It easy to access their Twitter account for information because you can do it online from anywhere instead of trying to get their magazines or trying to contact the closest representative.

Overall Avon along with many other business are using Twitter sucessfully to promote their products, and satifsfy the majority of their customers who use Twitter and other social media sites. Here’s the link to the Avon Twitter page below.

Google Blog

I chose to do my research on the Google blog. Since Google is an online business they should stay connected and up to date with their technology and the way they communicate with their users. The posts mainly consists of new product updates. However, they also blog about how they are connecting with other internet services, such as youtube, as well as Android. They anounces events they are involved with like The Big Tent Event in New York, where the Cirque de Soleil is performing. There is also posts about their exisisting products – mostly about Google maps one of their popular features.

In my opion they are using their blog very well because they are updating it frequently and posting about topics that interest their users. They talk about their new and existing products so if someone is looking for the newest update they can check out the blog or if they have a question about exisisting products they can also refer to the blog. It’s not all strictly about their products though. I read a post and watched a video on their blog about the U.S. election. They post things that are of great interest to people to attract more followers. More followers will create better advetrtising oppurtunity because more people will see their posts about their new products and features. Their posts are engaging because they have videos and photos to go along with almost every post and they blog about events that people can take part in like Google Science Fair, which by the way is already past so if your thinking about competiting – good luck next year.

Overall their blog is very engaging with the videos and photos and the different events they are involved with. Their posts are informative, relevant to their features and website, and are of hot topics that people are interested in. There is always new information because they have posts sometimes everyday. All the posts I have read have attracted me to read the next one and the next one so they have succeed in making a successful company blog that people will read and cotinune to keep revisitng the blog and reading.

My knowledge on Social Media.

                  Social Media is a big part of not only the business world but, also everyday life. It affects how people communicate, advertise, work, and live. I am apart of the younger generation where i learnt about technology and social media since I was little. Some people of the older generations are foreign about social media.

I know that social media is a great way for businesses to advertise their products or services because most people are spending their time on the internet and see the advertisements.  I think it’s also a great way to keep in touch with people you might not see on a regular basis, or can get ahold of other than through social media (cause you know they are always on their phones using social media). I feel that social media has many pros like keeping in touch and many cons like people spending every waking moment on their phones, computers, IPads, etc.  I hope to further my knowledge on social media sites that I’m not already familiar with.

Social Media is an advancing field and if your a business you’ve got to be involved with it because your customers are and expect it of you. I think Social Media is good for advertising and various other things but you won’t find me addicted to it like so many others. I still like old fashioned ways like talking on the phone or face – to -face interactions as opposed to Social Media.
