Social networking: can it help my business?
We've all heard people ask us "Are you on Facebook?" or "Do You Follow "so and so" on Twitter?" The world of social networking has introduced businesses to a new form of marketing and a viral method to reach potential clients around the world. So what is social networking and how can it help my business?
Social networking is defined by Wikipedia as "an online service, platform, or site that focuses on building and reflecting of social networks or social relations among people, e.g., who share interests and/or activities." Basically, a way for people and businesses to connect with each other online.
As technology evolves, business owners must also remember the way potential clients search for your business evolves. There is a whole generation of consumers that don't remember the days of a phone book, or when a cell phone was used to really call people. Today it is more common for users to search for a new restaurant through an app, or to share their new favorite retail item with their friends through Facebook™. If you want these users to discover your business and buy your product, you have to be where they are looking. We're in the information age and potential clients expect to find out as much information as possible in the quickest time; don't make them wait.
