is Social Media?
is a great question! Social media is a phrase we hear a lot these
days, but it can be hard to define. Basically, it is a website
that not only gives you information, but allows you to share your
thoughts on that information with others.
networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn allow
you to interact by adding friends, commenting on profiles, joining
groups, and having discussions.
well implemented, social media marketing can effectively connect
your business to new customers and grow a community of loyal patrons.
A good Facebook page, for example, is stickymeaning
that people will keep coming back when the content you offer is
interesting and engaging. Social media is also a great way to
showcase your specialty without heavily promoting yourself. It
allows you to position your business as the go to
source by offering content and value on a consistent basis. Ultimately,
this will attract new customers and drive traffic to your business.

level of engagement and traffic you had hoped, or if you are thinking
