The 6 reasons why a small business needs social media all boil down to Be So Goodnumbers.

  • People now use social media as an automated search – Facebook is a search engine
  • 47% of small business maintain a FaceBook page – which means you should too!

We are not suggesting that social media is a sure-fire way to propel your business to the top.  Social media is an enhancement to other marketing avenues that you should already have in your marketing arsenal.

Every piece of print advertising you do should include a way for people to find your business on social media.

Your business card should include your social media sites.

You should never send an email without your social media links in your signature and they need to be linked to the social media logo so people can click on the link and go directly to your social media site.

Anything you put in someone’s hands should have a call to action present driving them to look you up
