Social media for businessSocial media for business websites is a smart idea with around seventy percent of the population using social media in some form or other, this provides any business with a great opportunity to promote and market them selves online through many of the social media websites.

There is a huge audience out there to target for your business products or services and the best place to start would be the popular social media sites like Facebook Twitter and Google plus, while there are other social media sites available channeling your energy into the main three would be more productive.

Facebook currently has around two billion online users that are active on the popular social media site, and in there thirteen years since it was launched, Facebook has grown to be a force for online marketing for businesses both large and small all around the world.

The secret for marketing through your Facebook page is to get people to follow your business and with both free and paid opportunities you can present your business services and products directly to your followers and keep them updated on new products and business news.

Twitter works a little differently than Facebook with Facebook you can directly promote your services to your customers with text and with images and links, where as Twitter is a great way to spread news quickly and also easily share news with your followers, retweeting and sharing other Twitter users content on your page is a great way to be seen online.

The hashtags you use in your posts can help boost your presence and grab more attention from your followers when they search for a topic online, you can engage more with your customers on other topics rarther than just about your business.

Google plus is an other great marketing platform that alot of businesses do not use, while not having the same amount of active users that Facebook has it is still a great way to market and promote your business online, your google plus page is great for using text and images to promote products, then placing a link back to your website where the product is displayed, and unlike twitter where the amount of words are limited to each post you can write a short review for your customers to read about your products and keep them engaged and interested.

When starting out using social media websites to promote your business products or services just sign up for one to start with, and Facebook would be the most productive one to start out on, using a social media website to promote your business may be more work than you can cope with, you need to post at least a few times a week with interesting content to get the followers, then you need to keep them interested with new news and ongoing content, when you have mastered one social media site then you can sign up for one of the others but now you will have to work twice as hard to grab your followers attention and keep then there.
