Top Social Media Sites for Small Business
You know that social media works, but how do you find out what social media sites are the best for your small business? The truth is, there are dozens of different social media networks that can help you to expand your business. However, there are a few that stand out from the rest:
By far the leading competitor of all social media for business websites is Facebook. Whether you conduct a search for your mother, your brother, your teacher, or your best friend, you can almost guarantee that they will have a profile on this website. In the last two years, Facebook has skyrocketed in popularity, making it the most popular social media marketing tool. The sad truth is, if you don’t already have a Facebook business profile, you are already 5 steps behind your competitors. Your target market is already there. Where are you? With Facebook you can easily communicate with customers through public messages, private messages, or even real-time conversations. You can also easily share updated information, photos, videos, and other applications that may spark the interest of potential clients. See how I use Facebook to spread the word about my business and build a fan base. You might also like my page while you are there.
Another of the leading social media sites for small business and definitely my favorite one is Twitter. While not quite as popular as Facebook, Twitter still ranks among the top social media sites with over 200 million worldwide users. Twitter’s entire concept can be summed up in one question, “What are you doing?” Once a business profile has been created, the owner consistently updates the answer to this question, providing potential customers with information and insights into the business as they go. Like Facebook, Twitter also allows you to send private and public messages and share links and files such as photos and videos. Connect with me on Twitter and stop by to say “hi” and watch how I use this great tool to grow my business.
Whether it be a music video or a documentary, at one point in time we have all watched a video on YouTube. And because so many people watch videos on YouTube it is a great type of social media for business. The most obvious and effective way to attract customers on YouTube is through paid advertisements. Nevertheless, a lot of business owners are now sharing videos on YouTube to attract attention to their business. Whether it be a walkthrough of a store, a commercial, a video presentation, or answers to a variety of frequently asked questions, YouTube can be a great way to share information with clients in an interesting yet informative way. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to watch videos helping you build and grow your online business strategically.
LinkedIn is another great social media platform you might want to check out. It’s more professional than Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and it allows you to connect with other like-minded people or even your prospects and clients, share ideas, knowledge, and opportunities. With LinkedIn you can easily create a professional profile, keep in close contact with other professionals, find experts, share information, search for ideas, and explore or offer career opportunities.
If you are a small business owner, it is time to set up a social media account. When it comes to social media for business Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn are among the most popular social media tools today. However, there are many more out there so feel free to explore your options and connect with clients using as many social media tools as you wish. To learn how to use social media platforms strategically to build your customer base and grow your business, learn more about my Social Media Simplified program. I’ll be looking forward to help you create your very own smart strategy for social media.

Social Media Video 2013
Many managers of marketing are reluctant to use social networks for one simple reason … there are a positive answer to the immortal phrase of the film Jerry Maguire: Show me the money!
And to be completely honest I must say that they have a point. To date, there is often possible to cite successful cases in the use of social media when compared with other more traditional ….To add more arguments should be pointed out coldly that measuring ROI in social networks is still not as straightforward as it seems and there is no universally-structured methodology and much less defined.
Nonetheless it should be noted that while the ultimate goal of marketing is to generate profits, they do not always mean money. Having said this, we noted seven benefits that social media can give the marketing business, which could subsequently make tangible benefits that ROI so desired.
1) Connect with potential customers
Not necessarily a person entering a store or visit their site for the first time you are buying, however, we like to do because we know it becomes a potential customer and could soon be captured. When we engage in social networks, each follow, each I like, each recommendation, it means a potential customer.
2) Customer Service
How many times have spoken to a number of customer service responds ironically a machine? Well, the social networks are taking that role and it is better to have someone to answer because if not, handle a crisis can become very risky, just ask Nestl and its KitKat chocolate.
3) Public Relations
The most valuable intangible asset for a brand is your corporate reputation. A brand that can talk face to face with society and give an immediate response minimizes the risk of seeing their prestige and potentiates tarnished his image.
4) Human Resources
Social Media is not limited to Facebook and Twitter, is a network Tonga out there, and although they like many could be classified as entertainment networks, LinkedIn is a professional network and begins to be much more effective when headhunters to find talent that traditional recruiting systems. Moreover, even in the leisure, knowing the relationships generate profiles of the people become an invaluable resource for the area of HR.
We’re back to the flea market. Women used to go to market because they knew their butcher, the vegetable woman, the man in the grocery … trust their recommendations and come back every week to buy their products. With social media will be the same, while consumers feel closer to their brands, have more confidence in them and therefore more loyal. Not to mention that currently there are already many loyalty programs that make good use of social media.
6) Market Intelligence is
Is market intelligence gathering system information relevant to a company in their niches, opportunities and consumers are done with her strategies and decisions. Play every day what our customers say potential captive followers of our competitors and even our critics, today becomes an extraordinary tool and updated for this purpose.
As mentioned, many brands now and start to use social networks to run promotions that enhance their loyalty programs; likewise they have become an excellent channel for information on offers, sales, night, auction, etc.
As you can see, it is true, perhaps the social media at the moment is not generating the ROI that many marketers dream but it is simply a matter of time before it starts. What is real is that it is a tool that any professional marketing can stop using it … and soon will show us the money!
