Social Networking: Free Marketing for Your Biz

Use Social Media to Promote Your Biz

Are you a social media enthusiast? It seems most people are either “all in or all out.” Used wisely, social networks afford the opportunity to connect with target markets in a very effective way. The best part? It’s free!

Social networking is not only enjoyable but it can have a direct impact on business bottom lines if used correctly. People enjoy getting to know the person behind the brand. Once they have a sense of who you are, they become much more receptive to your business information.

The number one complaint among the uninitiated? “I don’t have the time.” There are numerous  resources available to minimize time spent online. Sites like allow updates to be delivered to all sites with one entry. Hootsuite and Tweetlater allow you to “preload” messages in advance. I encourage you to get out there and experiment. You could create dollars from thin air!
