How Social Media Help Your Business

Nowadays, social media has become a powerful tool for marketing. So powerful, indeed, that it has even transcended the reach and capabilities of traditional media such as the television, radio and print.

Its success may be attributed primarily to an increased access time and sustained interest. Because social media optimization sites can be accessed via phone, people have increasingly made use of their vacant time (such as travel time, break times and even meal times) to access social media sites. The sustained interest is due mainly to the natural inclination of humans to socialize or to get connected. Remarkably, scientists have uncovered that those who get connected via social media are almost as happy as those who are interacting face to face.

Research indicates that currently, 84% of B2B marketers utilizes social media marketing in some form. Among those marketers, 42% admits that Facebook is an important marketing avenue for their business. These data alone reveal that social media marketing is not only the trend among marketers but is an effective tool for marketing as well.

    I think the 82% is quite low. We have to remember, social media includes more than the top 4. Social media is any medium where individuals can exercise the act of socializing. These opportunities are simply everywhere online, which would mean that more than 82% are active.

    Now the top 4 social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn) are responsible for a huge chunk of that percentage, but other sites exist, nontheless.

    Most business owners I consult have cited the fact that social media is the lifeline of their marketing efforts.

    I see the common opinion I read is that social media is important and impactful for your company's activities.
    That can certainly be agreed on. But not all social media channels are the right ones for your business. We are a B2B business and experienced for ourselves that some social media channels work better than others for us.
    For example being on Snapchat would do us no good, since it is a heavy B2C presence, which does not help our business at all.
    Twitter seems to be a good choice, as well as Xing or LinkedIn in order to "socialise" and connect with your taget audience.
    But then again, that was our experience, I believe it always depends on the industry you are in and who you want to reach.

    I agree with you but please let me show something that is internet is now crowded with business owners try to market their business and that will affect on the ones who did it for free , so social media can be that good thing that will help a lot of us growing their business but only with advertising and not all of marketers have the budget that let them invest it in these expensive ads .

    Hope you understand my point
