10 reasons to get your business social!

Since last week’s Weekly News Update we’ve had a further six business owners pre register for the next Social Media course.

If you haven’t yet pre registered and need convincing, here are 10 ways social media marketing will improve your business:

  1. Increase brand recognition - Every opportunity you have to share your content and increase your visibility is valuable. Your social media networks are just new channels for your brand.
  2. Improve brand loyalty - According to a report published by Texas++Tech University, brands who engage on social media channels enjoy higher loyalty from their customers.
  3. More opportunities to convert - Every post you make on a social media platform is an opportunity for customers to convert. When you build a following, you’ll simultaneously have access to new customers, recent customers, and old customers, and you’ll be able to interact with all of them.
