Why is Social Media Marketing Important?
Static Website are no longer enough
Websites alone are not enough in 2016. 21st century consumers seek regular interaction sent directly to them via the hottest social marketing platform. This is known as push technology because the company pushes it out to the customer instead of the customer actively seeking it out. Today’s most popular push technology includes MailChimp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+. While they all help you stay in contact with your customers, each has its own unique features and users leaving business owners with the dilemma of having to maintain a presence on all or risk losing potential or current customers.
Who has time to send personalized emails and post on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+?
Having a healthy social media presence can be excessively time consuming for the business owner; however, there are tricks to working around this which allow the business owner to post in one place and having the same post appear in multiple platforms. This usually requires coding, but it would definitely be worth hiring someone to set this up for you, so you can proceed independently and efficiently after that. The old adage “Time is money” never applied better than to this situation. Paying someone to set up this multiple posting system is worth the time it saves the business owner in research and trial and error. Unless you are starting a web design business, it is not worth the research, trial and error, and frustration that comes with it.
