What social media do you use for your small business and why?

Social media is the latest and most advanced form of lead generation available today. Most people who use Sm do it wrong by just spaming the world with links to products and services. This turns people off and most remove you from thier fan base in the blink of an eye.

I run a small independant online business and Social media allows me to find new potential customers for my products. But I also interact between promotions that helps to build trust and a solid relationship with my followers and my friends etc.

I use Twitter, Facebook and my blog to grow trust, a relationship with my "Fans and Followers" and to find new ways to promote my business.

Social media is free to use and as such its priceless in the return on your time for each new customer you find for your product.

  1. I don’t, because I’m business-to-business. Big companies who sell primarily to consumers love social media marketing because it’s so cheap compared to their normal avenues– all it really costs is time– but so far I haven’t heard any reliable reports one way or another what effect Twittering (etc.) has on a business’s image or revenues. In a small business your time is as valuable as your capital, though, so even if social media are “free” to use it’s still time not spent on productive labor or normal marketing (which are known to be effective).

  3. For small business product promotion, try 40Billion.com 40Billion is the social network of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and creative people. They are very successful in promoting small business over five years.

  4. I am using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn for my small business. Initially, I set up the pages myself but I’ve now handed over the work to an agency as it saves a lot of my time and they present new and creative ideas on a frequent basis. I’d recommend them if you want to maintain a professional social media prescence. http://www.grow.ae/?p=social-media-marketing-dubai or contact Laura Pardoe here: 04 456 0220.
