Social media marketing can be a phenomenal marketing channel for small businesses. In fact, it’s small businesses that can benefit the most because of its affordability and extensive reach. However, a great Social Media Program doesn’t “Just Happen”, it takes time. It takes effort. It takes you actually engaging your customers and being Social. Let’s face it, you know you need a Social Marketing Strategy, but do you have the time? Studies have shown that nearly half of small businesses CEOs spend over six hours a week working on their own social media marketing. Further, another quarter spend six to ten hours posting to various social-media sites. Your time is better served elsewhere. Social Media isn’t just about selling either, don’t make that mistake! It’s your chance to create and build lasting relationships with your customers and fans at a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising.
If you don’t have time to grow your brand socially, do you have the personnel who do? Engaging people with genuine and original content on Facebook, Twitter and more takes time.
Do you have a Blog? If not you need one. It’s one of the best ways to develop original content and drive traffic to your Social Media Profiles, as well as your Website.
