There's a very simple, obvious reason why so many businesses are active on social media. It pays off! And it does so better than most other online promotional methods. It's where the eyeballs are online today. The statistics for the amount of time people are spending on social media websites are stunning. For users, and not just teenagers, their Facebook and Twitter accounts are much more satisfying and convenient than Email for keeping in touch with friends and family because it's essentially free of SPAM and technical gobbledygook. And websites like Linked-In help people find new jobs or connect with potential clients. Businesses, large and small, use social media to get their message out without it getting lost in the clutter of banners and pay-per-click advertising. They can use these websites to broadcast to the world, or communicate with customers one-on-one in a friendly and familiar environment.
You don't need to be a Fortune 500 Company to use social media to attract new customers. Small businesses with a national, regional, or local focus can find many opportunites on these platforms to raise their profile in their target markets. It's a potent and effective means of expanding awareness of your products and services to attract new inquiries and maintain existing customers. Your marketing efforts in this area can be done in conjunction with your website, or as a completely independent advertising program. It's also a very effective mechanism for gaining customer feedback to improve your business practices and protect your company's reputation.
