Why Social Media Marketing?

If you’re a business owner, chances are you’ve already considered using social media to help get the word out about your business.

73% of small business owners now use social media to power their brand.

You’re not alone. Over 73% of small business owners are now using sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest to help grow their businesses. And if you are still standing on the social sidelines, there’s never been a better time to get started.

Why? Quite simply, because it works.

In Constant Contact’s Spring 2011 Attitudes and Outlooks Survey, 95% of small business owners reported that not only were they using Facebook to market their business, but 82% of those people found it to be effective. Perhaps that’s why, in that same survey, 81% of those currently using social media marketing to connect with customers, members, and prospects, said they expect to increase their efforts in the coming year.

But while that’s all well and good, you’re probably still wondering what social media can actually do for your small business. That’s exactly what this guide is meant to answer.
