Warwick, RI — If you think social media marketing is important to your business, join the club.

A recent survey by Adweek shows an overwhelming majority of marketers — 92 percent — termed social media “important to their business.”

Some 2,800 marketing professionals and 160 senior executives were included in the Adweek review, which included data from the Social Media Examiner Industry Report [2014] and the Spredfast/Forrester 2014 State of Enterprise Social Marketing Report.

These marketing professionals also said that social media was most important as a brand awareness tool [39.2% of large marketers rated it a top priority], ahead of brand preference [29 percent] and driving direct sales or leads [15.1 percent], showing their view of social media as primarily a way to inform customers of their products and services.

Other results reported by Adweek included:

— 37 percent of all marketers said they are able to measure return on investment, or ROI, with 78 percent saying they “had trouble measuring ROI;”

— original written content is posted by 84 percent of respondents, with 73 percent also posting curated content from other sources;

— 58 percent or marketers said the most important kind of content is original, and 81 percent said they plan to increase their original content in 2014.
