Lots of web design companies won’t admit this, but there are a lot of small businesses that DO NOT NEED SOCIAL MEDIA. All types of business are different. And while social media is VERY useful for most businesses, it is not always going to be good for YOUR business.
Nothing is sadder than an empty Facebook page. If you don’t want to use social media to market your business, we won’t force it on you. We will find other strategies to promote your website.
Please read the statistics below. You will see that social media will get your website more traffic.
Did you know that Facebook is now the most preferred way of sharing content – second only to email?
Nearly 2/3 of US Internet users regularly use a social network.
52% of 55-64 year old internet users have joined a social network
So if you want to get business from the Internet (and who doesn’t?) why aren’t you using social media? Google and Bing have both confirmed that they use social media to help rank websites. You want your website ranked high on Google? So, is adding and working with social media a no brainer, or what?
Social media and blogs create what is called dynamic content, which means that they change frequently. This lets search engines know that your website is active, and engages people.
There are many social media outlets. But for those who cannot properly invest the time to use social media to its best advantage, we recommend Facebook and Linked In.
But you can’t just post anything on Facebook and expect it to work. Getting traffic on your Facebook page takes strategy. The key is to get people to Like, Share or Comment on your Facebook posts. This will put your Facebook post on the pages of all of their Facebook friends. If your post is good, those people will Like, Share or Comment on it.
If you don’t have the time, or if you don’t have the time to learn the best ways to increase your Facebook traffic, we can do it for you. For example, we can post to your Facebook page twice a week, which is a good baseline practice, for a very reasonable price.
ONE MORE THING: Having a great looking Facebook page branded like your website is also important. We can take care of that for you. Contact us for more information.
