Search and Social Media Synergies Identified in New Whitepaper.

iCrossing and Pluck Reveal How Marketers can Benefit from a Synergistic Approach to Search and Social Media

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Global digital marketing company iCrossing and Pluck Corporation, the industry leading provider of social media capabilities to publishers, brands and retailers, today announce the release of "Integrating Search and Social Media". The whitepaper traces the development of search engine marketing and social media, and identifies how marketers can leverage the synergies between the two online channels to engage consumers online. The complete whitepaper can be found at

The simultaneous rise of search and social media has created a confusing technology landscape for many marketers. The whitepaper concludes that while most companies have search strategies in place, and many are using (or exploring the use of) social networks to connect with their customers, few are taking the integrated approach demanded by the current Web landscape.

The solution, also discussed in the white paper, is for marketers to marry their social media and search strategies. Bound together, social media and search can provide brands, retailers and media firms with a cohesive, holistic digital marketing toolkit that respects traditional corporate branding, maximizes sales and word of mouth marketing effects, and thrives amongst disruptive technologies.

The whitepaper includes concrete steps marketers can take to ensure that their search and social media programs are working together to engage online consumers.

iCrossing and Pluck announced a partnership in June to offer an array of social media-driven digital marketing and search capabilities to major brands. iCrossing chose to work with Pluck based on the Pluck SiteLife social media platform's proven performance in powering more than 2.5 billion social media interactions each month on some of the world's largest and highest- volume digital media properties. With Personas, Groups, Blogs, Comments, Ratings & Reviews, Recommendations, Forums, Photos, and Videos, SiteLife delivers all the tools that retailers need to engage consumers.
