Social media is simply people sharing & having conversations online.  They are online venues, such as Facebook, Twitter (social networking sites), YouTube, blogs & wikis that help people to share their information called content, such as pictures, texts, video and links. 

How can Social Media benefit your business?

Social media venues help build your company’s relationships.  Your company has instant access to information, prospects and leads around the world.  Your business products, services and ideas can easily be conveyed to everyone all at the same time.  People can ask you questions and connect with you personally without you leaving your office.  You can share experiences, expertise and build strong business relationships and alliances.  By having a real relationship with you, the clients are inclined to form business relationships with you by purchasing your products or services.

A recent report from The Nielsen Company shows that so many businesses are moving into the social space because their consumers are there.  According to a recent report, 25% of small businesses now have a branded social network page and 41% are using social networks to advertise and promote their businesses.

Is your business social? Here’s an example of why it should be:

Jennifer Wright built a better pizza box and found a better way to spread the news. She told Ashton Kutcher (the actor) via Twitter. Four minutes after she tweeted the actor, he responded with a short and sweet “smart.” The most-followed man on Twitter put Wright on the radar of his 1.3 million followers, who took the idea viral. The day after their exchange, Green Box had 20,000 hits on its site. Now, its YouTube video boasts more than 700,000 views. Wright’s success in raising the profile of Green Box, a biodegradable pizza box that breaks down into plates and a handy storage container that fits into most refrigerators, is just one example of the reach social media have. With platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and others, ideas can make a big splash without huge budgets. Courtsey of Romy Ribitzky,
