SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Why Social Media is Important for Small Business
The vast majority of consumers use social media to interact with businesses of all sizes through platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Social media is a valuable platform for businesses to showcase reviews, content, images, and communicate with consumers.
If you aren't interacting with your customers through social media, your competitors are!
An integrated social media marketing strategy is essential to a small business’ growth, however many small business owners still do not have active, vibrant social media accounts.
When asked why, many report they don’t see the benefits of social media, don’t have the time, personnel, or knowledge to create and manage social media channels for their brand.
There are many benefits to having active, vibrant, and engaged social media accounts, including:
