Importance of Social Media presence for your business

In the last 15 years, Social media has been a rapidly growing gold mine for marketing, as more and more people are joining and interacting on the platforms daily! People of various ages and interests are enjoying sharing their ideas, thoughts, and information via the internet and it has become a go-to source for introducing many businesses to customers.

 

Why is social media a successful marketing tool today?

Having a social media presence lets you reach a wider audience inexpensively and quickly. This builds awareness for both you and your business, which in turn will bring in sales.

Top 3 platforms to consider for a successful marketing campaign

According to “The Research Moms”, Facebook is used by 81 percent of U.S. parents on social media, compared to 61 percent of the whole U.S. population 12+. According to The Infinite Dial 2019, there are 15 million fewer Facebook users in the whole U.S. population 12+ in 2019 than there were in 2017, but we don’t find the same declining trend among U.S. parents.

Use Facebook to build your business page and presence, post some great blog-like educational content, bright and attractive pictures, and videos.
