Facebook’s Floatation – PRimage ponders ‘will it be an investors dream?’

Friday, April 20th, 2012

As a social media strategist, Judy Viitanen is a keen advocate of Facebook and its ‘Platform Power’!  With 800+ million users worldwide and 4 billion items shared every day, Facebook is the undisputed titan of the social network sites.

Rumours suggest its highly-anticipated flotation is expected to happen on May 17.  Judy Viitanen and the PRimage team will watch with interest … We wonder if it will prove to be an investors dream. Is the $100bn valuation likely?  Facebook’s estimated revenues last year were $4.3bn – with $3.8bn coming from advertising and $470 from Facebook Credits.

HAPPY 2012! Love and best wishes from Judy Viitanen and PRimage

In 2012….I hope the kindness you’ve given to others returns many times to you.
May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,
The foresight to know where you’re going,
And the insight to know when you’re going too far.
May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart’s possessing,
And may the New Year bring you and yours many blessings.
Happy New Year!

Social media start-ups and investment opps – Talk to PRimage!

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

With the popularity of Facebook and Twitter, etc, social media is a rapidly expanding industry – and one where Judy Viitanen and PRimage do a lot of work and have interests in. It is also an area which offers great opportunities for angel investors. The decline in operational costs for running social media is an important factor for attracting angel investors, as the expenses for storage, processing power and web-based computing continue to lower.  Significantly, social media allows start-ups to actively test new products and ideas with users throughout.

Many social media start-up businesses may eventually require a large capital input, like Facebook needed to reach its current size.  But in the early stages of angel investment, most social media products just need a minor investment to get up and running. Our PRimage advice to social media entrepreneurs is to keep their business senses realistic and make sure their model is sound.

If you need good marketing messaging and PR for your social media work – or are interested in investing in entrepreneurial social media start-ups, please get in touch with Judy at PRimage – judy@primage.org
