What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Social Networking Sites
SMBs can benefit greatly from the use of social networking sites, particularly through both free and paid advertising campaigns. Simply posting on a free account can reach many potential consumers and companies such as Facebook and Google offer affordable targeted ad opportunities. However, social media accounts must be continually maintained and updated to ensure consumer comments are truthful and the copy is current. Otherwise, social networking can give a business a poor reputation.
