When it comes to Internet marketing, it’s all about maximizing your resources.
One of those resources is social media. It’s true that social media offers a mostly free way to connecting with customers and prospective students, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put a lot of thought and care into how you use it.
Paradigm Media helps career colleges figure out an effective way to use all their resources, from websites to social media. An effective Internet marketing campaign is about having a specific strategy and understanding how to use your tools.
“Heading to social media sites you are confronted with an audience that is extremely vocal about their likes and dislikes,” writes Joel Windels in an article for e-consultancy. “Monitoring conversation about an industry or theme will soon allow you to track emerging trends emanating from the data presented to you.”

“It is a market that has a great deal of conversation, which can seem daunting in the collation of online data,” he writes. “However, when you dive into the data you can see that certain themes emerge that can be of used by marketers when targeting their target audience.
