We’re often asked to put together integrated Online Marketing plans, which cover email marketing, viral marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Pay Per Click (PPC), and Social Media Optimization (using online social networking).

Social Media is used more and more frequently in the Online Marketing Mix; and we’ve created a number of successful branded MySpace layouts in combination with our sister company, Virtuaffinity.

The nature of Branded MySpace layouts present a number of challenges for webdesigners; MySpace doesn’t like JavaScript, and blocks links within Flash objects. They change the rules now and again to keep us on our toes, but here are a couple of examples of layouts we’ve done for ourselves and our clients:

The main things to consider when planning a social media marketing campaign are:

  • Who your target audience is
  • Why the readers/members/friends will find it useful
  • Who will own it, and will it be maintained
