On July 8, Internet marketing company fishbat analyzes the benefits of using social media to help promote small businesses, as reported in an article published by Entrepreneur.
According to a July 1st article published byEntrepreneur titled “How to Jumpstart Your Social-Media Marketing During the Summer Slowdown,“ social media presence is an essential for small business. In a survey that was conducted, 82 percent of small businesses said social media greatly benefited their company, as it provides a platform to directly communicate with customers.
The article advocates for small businesses to stay active with social media, even during the “summer slowdown” by providing tips for companies to continue their social media presence.
Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at Internet marketing company fishbat says an active social media presence is absolutely necessary for successful small businesses. Social media provides an outlet for companies to interact with customers in a unique way while promoting their services. “Creating a social media page for a small business allows for a great opportunity for outreach and expansion,” he says. “Something as simple as a Facebook page that is updated regularly can make a huge difference in the way your business is presented. It provides a unique form of advertisement while also allowing the company to reach out to its customers and expand its consumer base.”
Maas says this also makes Internet marketing companies relevant for today’s everyday business needs. “Small businesses usually need the most assistance in expanding their consumer base. This is where the role of social media agencies is needed,” he says. “Social media agencies can assist small businesses to become successful by managing their social media accounts and helping them advertise and communicate with their customers in a professional manner.”
