    True statement but what type of business matters. Social media works a lot better for a bakery than it does for instance, for a plumber. But yeah... every biz can use it to some degree.

    How can any business survive without social media?
    Disagree with the plumber analogy I've helped many tradespeople gain many more sales via social media,

    I'd have to agree with ZNICK: "what type of business matters."

    My own personal experience with social media is that some platforms are better than others for promoting internet marketing. I get a lot out of Twitter, but Facebook is a jungle when it comes to IM. In fact, after moving away from Warrior Forum into a few Facebook groups, I'm happy to return on a more regular basis. There's selling on the Warrior Forum, but its a lot more subtle and the advice is often quite good.

    I'm sure plumbers and bakers, etc. can do an outstanding job with the right Facebook profile and ad budget. But advertising Internet marketing courses, on the other hand, can be very expensive and the competition is very stiff from some of the better-known and better-financed marketing gurus.

    Part of the problem is that not only are some of the relatively famous marketers inundating the newsfeed, but their minions are quite active as well. You can't get from point A to B without bumping into some Facebook live presentation by an Elvis impersonator selling you the latest Facebook hack course. If that's your cup a tea, give periscope a try.

    Additionally, I am constantly running into my own peers promoting the same products as I or a competitor promoting a similar product. A lot of this, IMHO, is preaching to the converted and without a substantial ad budget your going to need a heck a lot of followers to break through. The links, the friends and the Fanpages are fine. But, not only do you need a healthy chunk of cash, your ads in the IM niche are scrutinized very carefully by Facebook. One 'misleading statement' or pissed off competitor can lead to your ad account suspension forever. At least the Google Adsense Team works with you to get your ads to comply with their standards.

    Do I sound like I'm complaining? Maybe, but getting a good lay of the land can help you put your resources to better effect over time. I do like Twitter. I get a lot more love with likes and retweets then I do on Facebook. It's a simple fact, at least in my case. Maybe I need 5,000 friends or something. I'm still involved with FB, but just to check in with my coaches and friends and catch up on the latest marketing news.

    Very helpful! Social media today is one of the great tool for business. A coffee shop for an instance, people would see it first on social media and they will be curious about it then maybe they'd like to try your product.

    How helpful is social media for business?

    Social media itself isn't important. What's important is, you're able to make the contact.

    My point is, does your traffic use social media, If so what are they using (Twitter, Facebook, etc...)? ...and just because someone is using Twitter doesn't mean they'll use Facebook (example).

    Follow the relevant traffic.

    Social Media is only relevant to businesses/companies who can present themselves aesthetically.
