With Friends Like Twitter and Facebook, Who Needs a Corporate Website?

Have you noticed the sometimes subtle, sometimes not-so-subtle attempts by commercials to drive social media awareness to their brand? Have you interacted with a brand because of it?

Check out this television commercial for Wheat Thins and then read the full post by Jeff Lemer at ClickZ.  Notice the non-invasive letters at the bottom right of the screen: @wheatthins.

 

While we don’t endorse the removal of your corporate website, perhaps it takes more of a secondary position.  The added use of  these channels will certainly create terrific engagement with your brand.

We would love to hear your thoughts…

  1. I think that social media is a great way to bring awareness to your brand. It’s crazy that many of our commercials and print advertisements are using the Twitter # and Facebook @ to promote their brand. I agree that corporate websites should not disappear because those who have further interest in the brand will have no where to look. I think another great example of a corporation using social media to spread the word about their brand is the new Snapple Iced Tea Lemonade commercial. Great post!
