Social Marketing vs. Traditional Marketing

Thinking about marketing your site, but not quite sure how to go about it?  Today, we’re going to talk about the two major types of marketing. Social Media Marketing, which is an engagement with online communities to generate exposure, opportunity, and sales… and Traditional Marketing which deals with the regular promotion of the distribution of goods and services through things like ads, sales, and other promotions.   Both types of marketing are designed to draw attention from potential customers.  The difference between the two is mainly the fact that social media marketing gives the readers a voice.  Traditional marketing can be done anywhere, online, in print, through word of mouth, but social marketing is strictly online.  Social marketing allows comments, questions, concerns, and gets a quick answer, not only from the original person or company who posted, but from others who have experience and can easily answer questions.
