Social media

Social mediaSocial media opens the door to large numbers of potential customers and clients. Facebook has over 150 million users in the U.S. (half the U.S. population) and 1.1 billion people worldwide, and Twitter has over 500 million users worldwide.

Facebook allows promotion through fans, and Facebook ads can target specific populations (age, gender, etc.) and geographic areas, which is great for local business.

Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, etc. reach different segments of your client base, and allow a diversity of media for promoting products and services.
