Why Use Social Media for Business?
Businesses use social media because it can improve the frequency, quality, and reach of their. marketing. It is a quick and easy way to promote your business’s sales, promotions, events, and other marketing activities.
Social media has permeated our culture, and it is used by people to make decisions, obtain information, and get their needs met. It is no longer about why you should use social media for your business, but how.
Social media should form part of a content and inbound marketing strategy. Often when people visit a new website they rarely take action on first visit, normally at least second or several visits. Many people research online before they buy – it’s reported up to 10 websites they check. Thus you need to have informative content that draws people into your business and becomes part of their decision making process. This kind of content is ideal to push out via social media and people will follow you for this, helping them to build trust with your business before deciding whether to buy. Your followers are also more likely to share this kind of content to their followers, thus increasing your reach beyond your own followers.
Digital advertising via social media is also growing as you can effectively target your customer base by location, age, interests etc. Often much more cost effectively compared to say traditional marketing, where you have the cost of producing leaflets, flyers, newspaper and magazine ads etc. and then having them distributed.
