It is amazing how I am in a meeting and get asked if all this online technology hype is worth it and I'm like for crying out loud we're in 2016. If you're still not leveraging on the power of the web then you're heading in the wrong direction fast. Recent mobile data reports point to an ever increasing amount of data consumption on the web. People all over the world are consuming streamed audio data in their terabytes per month and that is just one of the many data consuming activities they are involved in. Websites without social media plug-ins are now obsolete, as to reach out to the world one is required to be where the target audience is most active and it is a proven fact that they are, on social media.
The prevalence of 3G+ networks is driving this coupled, with mobile devices increasing capability, giving the everyday mobile user power to consume content anywhere anytime.
Let's use a 3rd world country like Nigeria who ranks 7th in the world for internet connectedness which represents over 40% of the population of over 160 million. This means an individual or organisation that runs internet based services theoretically has a market of over 65 million in size to grow into. Facebook has 16 million according to recent reports.
So therefore, it's within the realms of possibility to grow a large following. For a content creator in the audio and video space it is important to deploy a solution that makes it easy to leverage on the power of social media to connect, interact and grow their audience.
