10 Reasons to Use Social Media for Business


Did you know that 75% of all companies already own a page or profile on a social media site like Facebook or Twitter?


And 69% of those accounts are posted to regularly? Social media is here to stay and play in a big way.

The reasons to use social media to promote your business and products are more than just a low cost of entry and high exposure.

Social media for business is more than just posting “stuff”. It’s about building relationships, trust and loyalty with your followers and clients.  It’s about reaching people who may not normally see your business in their everyday actions. It’s about boosting your electronic footprint so that you are found anywhere on the internet a person looks.

If social media marketing is done correctly and consistently on networks your clients are on you will have found the golden ticket to leads and revenue.

  1. Mike,

    So you are the smartest guy in the room, great. But can you make a sales pitch in one screen shot?
    Here is the point, if you want to sell your services you had better figure out how to make your pitch appealing, concise and short. Long exercises like this post just lose people attention after the first screen.
    You have proven you are a smart guy, now prove you know how to sell.

  2. Well, thanks (I think) Bill. The point here was not to sell, but to offer a resource of value. I don’t think a direct sell from a blog post is the path I’m on. It’s the start of a relationship with those who are interested…

  3. I think you nailed the true essence of social media. Its about relationship not hard selling. Hard selling can be done via direct marketing (PPC, Paid Social Ads, etc).
