Earned Media – New Born Baby Of Social Stream!

Author : check buzz

With time passing by, social media has evolved as a medium of connecting people, sharing photos, knowing and letting others know what you are doing. Consequently, it has turned to much more than what it was just 2 years back; dragging the corporate strategy battles on social platform.
The element of social engineering that implies an openness and transparency in communication, participation, sharing, collaboration and cooperation – makes the social ground much more attractive than it ever was.

With this gigantic media, we have a niche media developing on its horizon coined as Earned Media. Classifying Earned Media, it is when customer becomes the channel example of, Word of mouth publicity, Buzz, Viral marketing etc and majority of it comes in the form of Consumer-generated writings. This is when, people share their thoughts/reviews/opinions/recommendations alongside the brand and their credibility. Giving a feel how stunning or how darning a brand as a whole, along with its products looks like.
Companies earn favorable points/sentiments if they enable compelling these customer experiences on the positive side. Earned Media has gained lot of recognition in the recent past and present. Looking at the current figures, social media advertising is expected to reach nearly $3 billion by 2011 (Oops! Who thought it 6 years back from now! At least i didn't) Possibly, it demonstrates the intense focus, companies are giving it as part of their overall marketing strategies.

Earned Media is the resultant of well formulated, implemented and well systemized, owned and paid media streams. Returns of Earned Media can be sensible and pure data, sales booster and clear signals from your engaged customers.
However some challenges (for corporates) can be relinquishment of control on this type of social communication. And if your customers are throwing negative feeds around, seems you need a better disaster recovery plan on your brand! (But thats an equation each time, so less to bother on earned media scenario!)
