Benefits of Social Media
Businesses can greatly benefit from social networking sites because they spread information faster than any other media. Social media sites help employers find employees and job-seekers find work. One of the main benefits of social media marketing is that social media is an excellent way to introduce people to a brand. Social networking site can be a good way to make connections with people with similar interests and goals and corporations and small businesses use social media to benefit themselves and consumers. Small businesses benefit greatly from the free platforms to connect with customers and increase visibility of their products or services.
When online consumers discover a business or retailer they want to use but know little about, they often check their social media page to learn more about the business. Many small businesses have static websites that change little, if at all, after being initially set up by the web designer that was paid to create the website. Social media accounts on the other hand should be constantly updated with new posts, images, news, etc. A website establishes that a brand exists, but a social media page establishes that the brand is active and ready to connect with consumers.
Social media should be a part of any content marketing distribution system. Social media accounts for a huge portion of referral traffic on the web. People are looking for content that interests them and they want to share it online.
Understanding how to create your social media accounts and maintain them can be a challenge but as a NYC Chamber of Commerce member we help you every step of the way.
