Getting started in social media for business is a completely different way of doing business for many people. Yet when you stop and think about it, it’s not all that different than having lunch with a few of your friends or stopping at the local bar on the way home and kicking back with colleagues. You are being social, first and foremost.
Business just comes as a natural progression. Coupons, discounts and deals work once the relationship has been built. People would just rather do business with people they know.
The power of social media for business is growing by leads and bounds every day. It is becoming the advertising of choice for small business. And no wonder! As newspaper and magazine circulation continues to decrease, it is a viable alternative to traditional
advertising. Plus it is well within the price range of many small businesses.
Can you handle social media by yourself? Of course you can! That is if you have the time to devote to setting up all the pages, profiles and configurations needed to be not only a presence, but also to successfully get people in the door and complete the sale.
What’s the catch? It takes time. More than you think. Yes, there are tools to help you but it still requires attention almost everyday. Where would your time be better spent, taking care of a customer or yelling at the computer because a plugin didn’t install successfully?
That’s where a social media manager comes into play. From setting up your social networks to engaging your customers, Sociable Sandwich can help you with all of your social media needs!
