A new survey from Social Media Examiner reports that 89 percent of small and medium-sized businesses report increased exposure and 75 percent report increased traffic as the top two greatest benefits of social media. But most businesses are still new to using social media with only 55 percent using social media to grow their business for two years or less. With that said, two years is barely enough time to learn the ins-and-outs of being successful with social media marketing and understanding all the possibilities.
If you are new to social media, or still just testing the waters, you should consider the numerous advantages of social media marketing for your business.
1. Increased Business Exposure
Facebook and Twitter alone reportedly serve 1.5 billion users globally. Social media allows your business to extend well beyond the immediate geographic area. With social media you can cross county, state, and even national lines. Social media is therefore a very convenient and also cost-efficient way for augmenting brand visibility – which is great news for global manufacturers. But what about local dealers? Social media allows any business the benefit of increased exposure. Whether a global, national or local business.
