Social Media can be beneficial enough if meaningful and relevant information is being shared to Targeted people. Specially in small business, owners can't spend huge money in marketing so in that point of view S.M.M. can be perfect option.

Great article! Everyone is talking about social media, but it's really important to get to know Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. They have valuable uses in business, but they need to be used in different ways for optimal results.

Default Social Media importance for Small business

The importance of social media is great for many reasons in which few cannot be ignored that are: Increasing traffic, promoting products brands, increasing trust, interaction and feedback on products/services and more.
It is equally important for small and large businesses and has great impact on ranking also.

Agree with this. In a normal individual it's also applicable to know the importance of the social networking site you wanted to be in. So that you can surely jive to whatever things are happening over there, or if you will benefit there or not. Knowing the uses of all this site will prevent you to avoid being non-sense in that site.

Default Great article!

This is a great article detailing how beneficial social media can be for small businesses. Not only can it help to reach a wide audience (as it states that 91% of American adults are online and using social media platforms) but it can enhance a company's brand image and strengthen SEO efforts.

Facebook and Twitter are clearly the behemoths of the social media world because so many people are on it and using it everyday. However, it's hard to break into a huge platform like those without putting in some ad dollars (Facebook ads is a great start) and the like. Platforms like Pinterest and other visual aid social media sites are great for e-commerce based businesses looking to enhance their brand and get their products immediately to potential customers.

There is no right answer but clearly keeping up to date with new social media trends and sites is the way to go!

Social media is clearly huge for small businesses. It is a way for people to connect on a personal level with customers. That personal contact is a big deal for small businesses to succeed. Also, there is no cost for it, which is also beneficial when you aren't bringing in large amounts of money.
