Tulsa Companies Use Social Media to Connect with Consumers on Internet

Tulsa Companies who use Social Media Now will Have More Influence with Consumers Than if the same Money was Spent on Marketing & Public Relations

There are huge national companies with huge marketing budgets and Social Media is a great way for “the little guy” to compete against the big companies. Employing an integrated strategy of email marketing, social media engagement, location-based services and google places a business can have tremendous success over time.


Social Media Marketing for Your Business

On Yesterday’s blog I talked about 5 Social Media Tools Every Business Must Have to Connect With Consumers in 2011

Today I want to expand on that and say that now is the time for small to mid-sized companies to take tremendous market share by leveraging Social Media and doing it better than their larger competitors who have huge Ad budgets.  I want to host an unscientific case study of 2 Tulsa businesses: Tulsa Gold & Gems and Mathis Brothers Furniture.

Both companies have been in Tulsa for many years and both companies spend a ton of money on marketing and advertising. While we have a number of analytical tools we could show you about their online influence we will simply do a casual “consumer-based” observation and give them our score.


Mathis Brothers Google Search Tulsa, OK

Mathis Brothers Tulsa Needs some Social Media Help. They do a ton of advertising on TV, Radio, & Newspaper but do not  have an official YouTube Channel, blog, or Twitter account. Their Facebook page showcases OKC but not Tulsa. They do feature their charity: Ronald McDonald House. No Web 2.0 icons on Website. But their biggest problem as you can see is some negative press from an angry consumer group. A blog, Twitter page and YouTube channel with good content, educational content and customer reviews could bury the negative link so deep no one would ever see it. Website Grader 96

Although I did have a good experience with them 2 years ago when buying a dining room table-there is no way we can Tweet them out and brag on them.

M3 scores Mathis Brothers a D- on Social Media.
