How Social Media Can Make Your Business Grow!

The Power of Social Media

Many businesses fail to realize the extent to which social media can help their business grow. In 2016, Facebook had 1.86 billion monthly active users , making it undoubtedly the most popular smartphone social media app. If your business doesn’t have a Facebook page, you’re missing out on a crucial marketing opportunity. LinkedIn is another powerful source. In 2015 Forbes wrote an article highlighting the fact that LinkedIn is the most popular social media tool used by CEOs; the second most used tool by CEOs was Twitter. All that being said, you cannot undersell the impact social media has on our society. No one goes anywhere these days without his or her smartphone in hand. As a business owner, this is an excellent opportunity for marketing and growth. I encourage all business owners to seek the advise of website and social media experts, as they are an excellent resource.  They will help you understand new and effective methods of advertising, often at an extremely reasonable price. Advertising and marketing doesn’t have to be expensive. Posting on Facebook is free, but it gets your name out there. Google reviews are another great way to earn credibility for your business. The Reid Law Firm is a five star rated Google review firm, which I think speaks to the caliber of our work. When people are in need of a service, more often than not they’re going to search for a local vender on Google. Having a clean and user friendly website paired with excellent reviews is a surefire way to get more business. There are a number of local businesses that offer truly great service, but they aren’t reaching their fullest revenue potentials because they don’t understand how best to brand their company. If your website is outdated or your contact information isn’t easily accessible, it is likely you’ll see a loss in sales revenue. In the past year, I have seen a tremendous increase in revenue simply from implementing the above-mentioned techniques. Don’t let business slip by!  I implore all business owners to look into the power social media can have on your business. Our firm used the services of Melinda Thomas, a marketing and social media expert, to help our firm grow to where it is today. If your small business wants to expand and grow, I highly recommend hiring Melinda. She may be reached by email
