Why Your Small Business Needs Social Media... Yesterday
Updated: May 11
With nearly 60% of Americans reporting increased levels of loyalty toward companies that have social media pages, it’s no wonder why social media is now more important than ever to small businesses nationwide.
Social media not only provides an excellent way for companies to humanize their outreach efforts, but enables companies to reach a more diverse base of potential customers and clients in the process. With undeniable ROI and an ever-expanding baseline of capabilities, the only question we have for you is ‘why haven’t you signed up yet?’
We fully understand that change, especially for established companies, isn’t an overnight endeavor. At the same time, resistance to innovative trends could render your business obsolete. Our goal through the following blog post is to increase your awareness surrounding the ways in which social media can help your business grow.
Easily Accessible Referrals
What do reviews on Facebook mean for your small business? Social validation. Simply put, people trust feedback from previous buyers more than anything else when it comes to buying decisions. By activating social media pages, you are providing additional gateways for potential customers and clients to hear the good news about your products or services.
Not only does social media provide an easy way for interested onlookers to discover your brand, but cutting-edge ad technology within each platform enables you to extend your presence beyond what is possible with organic reach. By exposing your unique selling proposition to a wider audience, you can more effectively spur the growth of your small business.
Quicker Announcements & Updates
If you’re someone who uses social media, how often do you find yourself opening the app(s) for updates?

For promotions, relocations, and events, social media offers a versatile and easy way to get the word out.
