Agents Of Rapid Recognition – Blogs And Social Networks
Lily Allen, the talented British singer won this year’s NME award for the “Best Band Blog”. The outspoken singer established a MySpace presence in 2005 when her record label couldn’t find the time to support and market her music. The demos which she posted on her blog attracted stupendous popularity and shot her to fame with at least 500 limited edition 7″ vinyl singles of her song rush released.
The Lily Allen website has a ton of cool stuff that would appeal to youngsters like MySpace skins and website banners, not to mention more free songs and videos. Not bad for a girl with rudimentary online marketing knowledge. I wonder if she has hired any web development teams working on her online space.
The younger section of the populace access the internet even more than older working professionals these days. They indulge in a lot of sifting and searching while doing the regular social networking rounds and social bookmarking in Dubai.
According to Read/Write Web, 67 percent of teens are avid users of the internet. ClickZ discovered at least 71 percent tweens visit social networking sites weekly. Quite a significant fraction indulge in social bookmarking in Dubai as well.
From an online marketing company in U.A.E.‘s point of view, it would be remiss to ignore this dynamic force and not tap its potential. Infusing certain elements that appeal to the young crowd like contemporary images, language and a convenient navigational system would be a great step to take.
