Why Go Social?

Business is Business, right? Why take the time to socialize?   Here’s Why… 500 million tweets are sent each day. 75% of engagement on a Facebook post happens in the first 5 hours. Over 20 billion photos have already been shared on Instagram. And, 23% of Pinterest users are on at least once a day.

Social Media is where the people are!

Social media has taken over the online marketing world and the benefits reach far beyond sharing your products and services. Social Media Marketing:

  •  Improves brand awareness
  • Increases your website traffic
  • Builds trust & loyalty

And, yes,

  • Translates to more business

Making social media marketing a priority for your business, allows you to reach a larger, yet more targeted audience. It is all about the bigger picture, long-term brand commitment. Social Media connects people and takes “word of mouth” advertising to a whole new level. It’s about building your “tribe.”

“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea… A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.” ~Seth Godin

Share interests with your audience, connect, and communicate. Do this, and you will develop a loyal customer base that will promote your message and services without even being asked.
