Social Media: Accepting the New Reality

From the Lunarpages Blog this week:

by Jeffrey A. Cohen, Cohen & Richardson, PC

Social media has become a main stream marketing medium that should be considered in any robust campaign for Internet related products or services. At the same time, it must be clearly understood that there are legal and other issues presented by the use of social media which are substantially different than those of other media.

The interactivity that makes social media such a strong communication tool is so unlike any other medium that the failure to properly consider in advance and properly handle the issues that can arise can place the unprepared advertiser or marketer into an unexpected and unenviable position in the midst of a marketing effort.

For example, if your company maintains a Facebook ™ page, the question arises as to how your company intends to deal with negative commentary. Before the social media age, negative commentary could often be easily addressed via deletion, cease and desist letters or, where necessary court orders. In the age of social media it is often the case that any effort to stifle negative communications results in further negative communications critical of the effort to stifle the communication in addition to the initial offensive content.

Not knowing much about web hosting, I decided to use Lunarpages to host my business website because my father used it for his projects. I am very happy I did. I remember one instance when I didn’t understand what was going on with my site. I emailed Lunarpages support one time during the night and within 15 minutes, I had a helpful response. It was unbelievable customer service–service I’ve never seen with any company–and I have never had a regret since.

I‘ve been using Lunarpages for half a decade now, ever since I taught myself HTML. Since 2005, I’ve built dozens of websites for myself, my friends, and most recently for my company, and EVERY TIME I have encouraged them to use Lunarpages to host their websites. I’m a novice coder, and a don’t make a ton of money which is why I love Lunarpages. Their interfaces are easy to use and the service is dollar for dollar more affordable and reliable than most others. I’ve never had a problem with my websites that were hosted with Lunarpages. So I’m just showing some love! Here is a photo of my home office (or as my girlfriend calls it “The Command Center”). Check out the wallpaper on my screens! Thanks Lunarpages! You guys ROCK!

I am an artist and I have been with Lunarpages for quite a while, in fact I use to design websites for a living and it was a prerequisite for me designing someone’s site. I love Lunarpages and I don’t mind saying it, I researched for quite a while before hosting with them and couldn’t find anyone that holds a candle to them and the service they provide. Their service has been the same since I first hosted, which is AWESOME! for a lack of a better words 🙂 I have recommended Lunarpages more times than I can count on my fingers and toes combined, 10 times over, and there is no other company I would recommend 🙂 They make it so Easy and Affordable! I Love you Lunarpages 🙂

I absolutely love Lunarpages. About two years ago, when I went on the hunt for a company to host my portfolio site, I made sure to research all my options. Lunarpages, simply put, had the absolute best package I’d ever seen for the best price around. I’ve never had an issue, my site has never been down or unavailable, and Lunarpages makes sure to keep me informed all the time. You guys rock, and for that reason, I wanted to make an extra special sign for you guys. Hope you like my wild and crazy make-up design skills!

I am hosting my website with Lunarpages from 2006 onwards. Never have I had a second thought on my decision to continue with them. And that is the reason I recommended lunarpages to many of my friends. And now three of them are hosted with lunarpages(Including business plan) and are very satisfied like me. As a Java web developer, I recommend only lunarpages, mainly for four reasons. It is easy to setup, fast, inexpensive for the great services and above all the great support they offer. If you program the right way, you need to contact them only for renewal. Long live lunarpages and keep it up!!

I have hosted with Lunarpages for at least 5 years, but I’m sure it’s even closer to 10. I have referred everyone that I can to Lunarpages and have never had so much as a hiccup in service! Even when it seemed like all of a sudden there was a hiccup, it was addressed before my heart rate increased so much as a BPM! In summary, I have actually used the phrase, “I Love Lunarpages” LITERALLY hundreds of times over the last decade or so and I will continue to say it for years to come, I am sure! I can’t say enough good things about the level of quality service and the insanely good quality of the services I have purchased from Lunarpages. Thank you Lunarpages! You make my day … every day!
