    Yup if used efficiently you can definitely improve business, especially if you are getting down and being in constant communication with your social media followers. Make sure if you setup a Social Media website for your site, to constantly update it... If not used correctly social media can almost harm your website..

    Nobody wants to check out a legit looking website's social media accounts to see them empty or blank.

    I think we're actually reaching the "inverted" stage, where NOT using social media can hurt your business, because all your competitors are going to be using it, and using it well.

    Of course, if you make a great enough product, then people are going to be talking about it whether you bother with a social media strategy or not.

    For "ordinary" folk though, especially if you're sellling products to consumers, a sound social media strategy is going to accelerate your growth- and this could make all the difference in establishing a competitive advantage. Assuming nobody makes better stuff than you do. (Big assumption.)

    It really depends. I know that is not clear cut answer but its the truth. We have different FB account for each country we sell into. Our conversation % in some countries is ridiculous on FB. In other countries its non existent. In USA the population really doesn't want to be marketed to on FB and this is why FB created Edgerank algorithms...it decluttered regular users news freed from marketers page post.

    So what to do? You have to test and test until you find which marketing technique works for that particular target market. Some places we only do advertising on high ranking blogs. Other places we use local newpaper that works very well. In USA we found Pinterest to be only real converting social media site.

    One thing I will say is that I see entirely too many people spending way too much time on facebook trying to 'nail it' when their time would be spent in many other ways. But its human nature to stick with what your comfortable with and most people started on facebook for fun...so this is where they spend bulk of their time in business also. Not saying thats correct just observation I have made along way.

    Facebook and Twitter certainly have their place in our personal lives; however, with some thought and ingenuity, they also have the ability to be a great resource for your business. In addition to these social media outlets, you may choose to create online forums or blogs where customers can learn more about what is happening in your business..

    No doubt that social media plays a big role in promoting a brand or generating traffic. But it should be used properly. Promoting on social media do not guarantee its success if not used properly and without any strategy.

    Your business is the "best seo" that is "very good" at social media, but you need to ask basic info? OK, cool.

    Social media does increase business, both directly and indirectly, in many ways. Used effectively, it increases sales from your existing customer base and expands your customer base rather easily in many industries. Plus, there are direct SEO benefits. Diversifies sources while reinforcing existing ones. Helps in branding, etc.

    Social consumers are looking for a solution to a problem. They need to make a decision on a purchase and find info on a specific topic. Word of mouth, trusted sources and those with prior purchase experience are counted on so many customers do their decision making research online reviews, social communities and blogs. So yes those businesses that are serious about ROI should look at starting or increasing their social media marketing efforts.

    It can. If business owners evolve enough to get a simple point. In a new world old ads is not working. Social networks communities are best promotion and traffic generating platform today. But no aggressive ad is working there. Just indirect one (soft criticizing, making noize, viral video, memes).

    Hi,

    Social Media offers a web-based opportunity for you to gain customers, increase your knowledge base about what your customers are looking for and get them involved in your business. There are lots of ways in order for you to gain profits from Facebook and Twitter. First of all if you are selling products online, having a website is the best thing that you should do. Social media is a great place to pull traffic for your website. Marketers utilize them in social medias to lead possible customers to their own page. I guess you are aware of the advertisements in Facebook or any other social media site.

    Have a nice day !
