How Does Having Social Media Help A Business?
When a business has social media accounts it means they can reffer customers to it so they can ‘like’ or ‘follow’ or ‘add to circles’ on their personal social media account. Doing so allows they’re friends to see they’re activity and on their activity it will show them liking a certain page. When users see their friends do this they sometimes take a look at the page themselves and see if they like it, If the user does like it obviously they will press the ‘like’, ‘follow’ or ‘add it to circles’ repeating the process again to their friends. another upside of doing this is it can create a better revenue and attract more customers helping your business grow.
Are There Any Other Ways It Helps?
Yes. Having a social media accounts with customers who like the page and buy from you will make it easier for you to promote sales and new stock to them due to the fact all it takes is a nicely typed out ‘tweet’,’status’ or ‘update’ and your customers will be able to see it on their news feed instead of advertising on bill boards which costs quite a bit of money and doesn’t always mean extra traffic towards your business.
