Social media for small business is one of the most effective ways of marketing your small business. If you have not checked out this new marketing channel yet, it is time to take a peek!
Using Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter has brought back good old fashioned networking to the small business world. Not since old times has word of mouth marketing had such an impact on what people buy.

Why use social media?
Consumers are once again reverting to a need for personalization from businesses large and small. The need has been rekindled by the Internet and our ability to find anything we want, as well as a mistrust of advertising (think used cars salesmen).We’ve reached a point where the consumer wants to know the store owner’s name and that he can be trusted. Small businesses must look beyond their want to grow into corporations, and instead focus on their core customers. Thanks to social media, we’re able to foster these relationships easily and quickly.
Using tools like facebook and twitter allow you to get closer to your customers and to develop a level of trust that was not possible before these marketing channels opened up a couple of years ago AND do not even get me started on the power of a blog to compound these efforts!
