Social media marketing revenues from Twitter predicted to break $300 million

Social Media Marketing Twitter RevenuesThe company will be tweeting its way all the way to the bank in 2013 with the most recent forecast.

eMarketer has released its most recent projections regarding the social media marketing revenue that will be generated by Twitter this year, as well as what its ad revenue will be in 2014.

According to these predictions, the forecasts for advertising spending at the network are on their way up.

According to eMarketer’s predictions, in 2013, the social media marketing at Twitter will earn $582.8 million globally. That said, by the end of next year, the global ad revenue at the social network will have increased to almost $1 billion.

This is considered to be a notable turnaround for Twitter and its social media marketing successes.

Until 2011, social media marketing had not been a lucrative enterprise for the microblogging platform, so this is a very meaningful achievement for Twitter to have made.

According to the report that was made by eMarketer, “Advertisers have shown more interest in spending money on mobile advertisements on Twitter, and as recent audience figures from multiple research sources analyzed by eMarketer have suggested Twitter’s reach is improving.” The company also stated that it believes that the social network has benefited from the growing mobile focus, when all is said and done.

When competitors such as Facebook and Google+ placed a massive concentration of their efforts and investments on the mobile channel, Twitter seems to have ridden that wave and has been able to enjoy the social media marketing benefits that it has brought along with it. Each of its primary competitors – which currently lead it in revenues as well as in the number of active members worldwide – have implemented a massive expansion of their mobile ad offerings.

These efforts from the competition have managed to convince social media marketing companies to move their spending to mobile. Through this, Twitter has been able to increase the ad revenues that it has been generating through advertising for companies that have already been convinced partly due to the investments of the competition. Now it is hoping to continue along this trend in order to nearly double its ad revenues before the end of next year.

Social media marketing may have been misunderstood last year

Social Media Marketing Missed PointExpert smartphone and tablet marketers are wondering if companies missed the point in 2012.

One of the hottest topics in mobile is the crossover of social media marketing content and the SEO practices, with many saying that one simply cannot exist without the contribution of the other.

However, as much as this may sometimes be successfully applied for desktops, mobile may have missed the mark.

According to an Econsultancy publication, SEO and social media marketing content have come together to create a marriage between methodology and technology which currently cannot be broken. There had once been a time in which these were entirely separate thoughts, but that time has long passed.

Unfortunately, many mobile social media marketing campaigns have failed to make this recognition.

This has presented a significant challenge for companies and marketers that have spent the last few years developing strategies that use SEO and social media marketing separately. However, many are saying that it is now vital for those brands to break away from their old habits in order to encourage successes in today’s multichannel marketplace.

According to the data from Econsultancy, 97 percent of online marketers feel that social media marketing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn can be beneficial to the successes of their companies. This includes everything from nurturing to lead generation. However, all too many of these same individuals are not seeing the connection between the two practices and are therefore failing to experience the full potential of each of those elements.

The report on the site went on to explain that for companies that recognize that the future of search is a combination of social media marketing content and the application of proper SEO techniques, has already arrived. Therefore, those who work to join the early adopters will be able to enjoy a considerable advantage over their competition, who has yet to catch on.

As SEO and social media marketing remain two pathways for driving leads through discovery and for boosting the highly valuable exposure through word of mouth, it is can be considered to be exceptionally important for marketers to see these two practices as a single methodology.
