Right now, there are more than 1 billion users on Facebook. By the time you read this, that number will have risen – and risen again by the time you add social media links to your Web site.
Including popular social media links on your Web site will:
- Boost your search engine ranking by creating links to and from your Web site
- Give you a new and popular forum to announce new projects or products
- Reach a giant network of people
- Get people talking about you without spending one dollar on advertising
Over 50% of Facebook’s active users log on every day. Statistics show that people spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook.
Your customers, across multiple demographics, don’t communicate the same way any more. They text, post, and tweet. They rely on recommendations not just from people in their inner circle, but from people in their outer circle – people they don’t even know. This powerful outer circle is their social network and social media links on your site get you the invitation to join them.
Social networks have evolved into much more than a platform to share photos and family updates. Social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Four Square and many others are the channels your customers use not just to stay in touch, but to make important buying decisions.
By now, you probably have no doubt about the relevance of social media. Like many other business owners, you may not be entirely sure of how to use it, how to apply the tools to your business or how to manage social media so that it benefits your bottom line. We can help you get started with links, blogs and ideas for posts.
Social media is fun, fast and results-driven. Once you get the hang of it, you will be amazed at how simple it truly is and how easy and affordable it is to manage. Go ahead, get started – your customers are waiting on you!
