Google social search changes have arrived

We have seen it coming for quite some time and we have been making sure we have plenty of social content out there to index. We have been telling our clients to get on board and take advantage of this. Well here it is… The Google social search changes have finally arrived and will make searching  more exact and probably more fun.

So what is it all about?
Google has announced that its search results will now include content from social media. Listings will basically include a sampling of social search results. Until now they were confined to the bottom of the search results page – but now they appear within the normal listing results, with an annotation to the source.

Logged in users will be able to see if a site has been recommended by their friends on Twitter or Facebook or other social media public profiles.

This is great news for everyone (except people that don’t use social media to offer services etc..). Search results will produce more precise information and this helps both the searcher and the info publisher. If you are sending Tweets or Facebook messages that are publicly shared – you will probably see them come up when searching Google.

This is by no means confined to Facebook and Twitter. If you want maximum exposure for your services, products or information – get social and start building your social media relationships.

There are those that believe this may lead to diluted content or irrelevant results. Think again! Look at the global picture and realize what an enormous impact Social media has had on all information broadcasting. To be able to provide up to date and relevant information (which is what we all search for – and Google is intent on delivering) this is an almighty leap in the right direction.

Get your potential customers to come looking for you


Want a lot more web based business for a lot less money?

Most people are now aware of the growing impact of Social Media. Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube have become household names – not having some of these Social Media giants connected to your website is no longer an option. There exists no other low-cost promotional method that will easily give you large numbers of visitors, many of whom may well come back to your website time and time again.

Your customers may well be on your website but what about your potential clients?
If you could get new customers without them visiting your website, wouldn’t that be great?
With Social Media you can build your brand recognition and create trust off your website so that the conversion rates on your website go way up! See some interesting facts here.

Your potential customers will come looking for you!

Social Media is a natural evolvement of the Web and we have become specialized in the the working of social media technologies to help reach a targeted audience, generate that much needed revenue and create a positive image for a business.

Social Media marketing is a two-way form of communication

Probably the most important aspect of our marketing at Navega Bem is that we recognize that Social Media unlike other forms of online marketing is a two-way form of communication. Many companies are not yet using Social Media and the majority of those that do will simply narrowcast their wares to no-one in particular. We focus on building communities to interact with and we create good quality content. Social Media really is about ‘Quality’ and not ‘Quantity’. 200 interactive connections can be much more powerful than 200.000 one way connections.

Lisete Gonçalves, Project Director and Administrator of Navega Bem explains why in-house Social Media marketing is not always the best option. “We encourage all our clients to setup and run their own Twitter and Facebook accounts. But of course it requires a dedicated strategy. In much the same way that a company needs a professional website to create a credible relationship with its customers and communicate a competent approach,  it also needs to exhibit that same professionalism with its Social Media. So, if you don’t have the experience or the time to run your social marketing internally – we are here to help.”

Social Media marketing is all about creating content, sharing expertise and being part of a like minded community. The time has now come to reach out and talk with your customers and potential clients and offer them your experience. It takes skill and perception to manage your company’s image with social media. Navega Bem’s Social Media marketing services are targeted at substantially increasing communication between you and the rest of the world. We will show how interacting with your customer base can make an enormous difference in bringing you new clients and generating a better income.

Facebook and Twitter compared

When we began to get new projects through our Twitter and Facebook accounts – our curiosity into how these two very different forms of Social Media are evolving became very focused indeed.

12 months ago we would have been very surprised to get new work at all if it didn’t come through our website… today we expect it. More than any other Social Media, Twitter and Facebook have evolved with incredible tenacity. Today, we get a lot more business for a lot less money!

The online marketing agency ‘Digital Surgeons‘ have created a highly interesting demographic which highlights the most prominent differences and similarities between Twitter and Facebook.


The most interesting facts for us are:

  • Facebook now has 500 million users – Twitter has 190 million users
  • 41% of Facebook users login daily – 27% of Twitter users login daily
  • 12% of Facebook users update their status daily – 52% of Twitter users update their daily status.
  • 40% percent of Facebook users follow a brand – 25% of Twitter users follow a brand.
  • 51% of Facebook users will purchase that brand – 67% of Twitter users will purchase that brand

This information is of great help when choosing where to advertise or where to focus your marketing campaigns.

Certainly, if you are not utilizing Social media – you are not taking advantage of some incredible sources of marketing.
It used to be a long and laborious task building a network of quality links. Also, standard print advertising and paid internet advertising are really costly ways to market your brand.  Today’s new Social Media is free and reaches more people in more places and certainly on a much deeper and personal level than ever before. In fact, if it is done correctly, your potential customers will come looking for you!

There exists no other low-cost promotional method that will easily give you large numbers of visitors, many of whom may well come back to your website time and time again.
