All That Can Happen In One Internet Minute

Posted on Have Your Say: Leave a comment?

I came across this brilliant infographic from Intel the other day and I just had to share it with you all.

As you can see, some of the statistics in this image are staggering! For me, the following figures really jumped out at me:

  • Over 100 new LinkedIn accounts are set up every minute
  • 20 million photos are viewed on Flickr every minute
  • 100,000 new tweets are published on Twitter every minute
  • Facebook receives 6 million views every minute
  • 30 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute
  • Google deals with over 2 million search queries every minute

And why do these figures in particular stand out to me I hear you ask? Well, put simply, these astonishing statistics go a long way to proving the real value of using social media and the internet within your business. If you are not online, engaging and interacting with your prospects and current client base on these platforms then you are surely missing out – and that is each and every minute of the day!

There are so many ways in which you can use social media and the internet to help you prospect, network and engage with key decision makers online – all you need is the know how. If you would like more information about how you can tap into these fantastic figures and make them work for your own business, then please leave me a comment below and I will get back to you.

    Hi there Louise,

    I work for a company that sell online water analysers and manufacture ancillary chemicals. This is a very niche technical market and we are wondering how best to manage social media as a small company (sales force and support staff = 5!)

    If you can suggest anything or have any resources that would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Hi Joe,

    That really does sound like a niche market! But how ever niche the market or how ever small the sales team, you can start to implement social media within your business – you just need to know which platforms to use and how to engage with prospects and key decision makers via these specific platforms.

    For me, LinkedIn is a key social media site for B2B sales professionals. You can actually use LinkedIn to target very niche areas of the market and connect with people you otherwise might not get the chance to reach so it would be well worth taking a look at our free report on how to use LinkedIn for your business: http://www.mtdsalestraining.com/lireport.htm

    This will give you a general overview of how you can make the LinkedIn platform work for you but if you would like more information on how to use the site specifically for your business then please email me on louise.denny@mtdsalestraining.com and I’ll be happy to help.

    Regards,

    Louise
