Here are four factors to consider as you choose a social media platform for affiliate marketing.
2. Twitter. Well, you’ll find them on Facebook, too. Twenty-seven percent of Twitter users pull down more than $75,000 a year, with 23 percent of Facebook users crossing that threshold. MySpace is for the less affluent: 63 percent of the site’s users make less than $50,000 a year.
3. A substantial 37 percent of Facebook users are age 45 or older, compared to 28 percent for Twitter and 24 percent for MySpace. So, it seems safe to bet that a larger percentage of Facebook users watch golf and have dinner at 4:30 in the afternoon.
4. An education doesn’t mean you have to speak in long sentences, I guess. With 37 percent of its users holding at least a bachelor’s degree, Twitter’s user base is the most educated.
So, how does this help you out? Well, it’s nice to have a sense of whether your target market is even available on a particular social media platform before you invest you time and capital in it. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Instead of pulling the trigger before thinking, spend some serious time monitoring different social media platforms and doing extensive research before deciding where to commit your company’s marketing cash and capabilities.
These are numbers to get you started, but you still have a lot more work to do. Remember: social media is no different from any other form of marketing. You need to think, plan and do it right. Otherwise, you might find yourself pushing your company’s products on Friendster … a move that isn’t exactly value-accretive, right?
