If you run a small business or you have reason to promote yourself, you should be active in the social media world. While the most of businesses already made their first steps on the diverse social media platforms, there are still quite a few that are not sure on how to do social media and if it is of any good. To answer that question once and for all, yes, it is good. If you run a business and you look for growth, you must look into social media and get active. If you do a search on Google on why you should be on there, you will find a good number of reasons. You won’t be able to wipe them off the table.
So, before you start wasting time in finding reasons why you shouldn’t be on there, have a look at this infographic. It gives you good guidance to start out and go along on social media, until you get better and gain a better understanding of the subject. One thing on this infographic I would like to correct, 15 minutes a day is NOT enough. And another thing, your social media properties are your show room and selling is very much possible.
Many claim that social media is only good to increase brand awareness, boosting web traffic and engaging customers. After hanging around sales, business development and marketing for 30 years, those are not sales and business development activities? There you have it. Trust me, there is no harm done in letting your audience know what you are selling and how good it is. Get started!
