4 reasons why Social Media ROCKS!

1. Social Media Gets Your Customers Talking

When your customers start talking about your business via social media, it can garner new interest from new potential customers because people trust recommendations from friends.

Social media gives you a platform to get these recommendations organically.



2. Customers Can Take You With Them

People take the Internet with them wherever they go thanks to smartphones and tablets. If your site is optimized for mobile users, then you can keep your company in your clients’ back pocket.

In 2011, the mobile Internet audience increased by 62 percent, according to a study by the Nielson Group, and that number has grown - and continues to. This means you have the potential for a constant connection with your customers.

To take advantage of this, have your site optimized for mobile users, or set up a mobile specific site they can access.

3. Improves Search Engine Ranking

You want your website to rank high in the search engines, and social media can actually help with this. Search engine optimization (SEO) improves any time you get more traffic to your website.

When people start using Twitter, Reddit and Facebook to share your promotions, blog posts or articles, your ranking will improve.

The changes to Google in 2011 also mean that these popular sites are now being indexed by the search engines. The more people on social media sites are talking about you, the more active and valuable you will appear to the search engines, and the higher your rank will be.

4. Connections on Social Media Can Increase Your Sales

While getting people talking about and interacting with your brand is valuable, your number one goal is to increase sales. Social media can do this.

According to statistics in the UK, for example, 28 percent of British businesses reported an increase in sales due to their social media efforts.

People who are researching purchasing options through social media are likely to make their purchase online, and if your presence is strong and positive on their favorite site, then you have an increased chance of landing that sale.

These statistics show that social media has a positive impact on those businesses that use it well.
