In this article we will explain how you can grasp the business opportunity that social media platforms offer you, explaining what social media is and why it is an important part of an internet marketing strategy for your business.

So let’s start with what social media is, firstly there are over 500 social media sites and these are growing all the time. A social media site is characterised as something that is made up of user-generated content and gives you the ability to share information with your contacts. You have probably heard of the main social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Google+.

Social Media is so important for businesses because is maximises the potential of customers engagement and fosters a sense of community while increasing traffic to your website via links to blogs and articles on your website, from your social media posts.

One major benefit of social media for business is that customers will search the internet to see what people are saying about you before purchasing from you and the review areas on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ will really help prove your reputation in other people’s words, not just yours.

Without a targeted strategy to social media for your business you could just be wasting time and in some cases your social media presence could conflict with the message of your business and other branding that have you spent time establishing.
