What is Social Media Marketing?
Social media can be a powerful marketing tool for companies to reach current and potential customers. Every business is unique and therefore requires different social media outlets in order to reach this target audience. The content you put up on these social platforms directly reflects your business and if used properly should be used to reach your target audience. To carry out effective SMM you must engage in activities such as updating your pages, videos, and other similar content that drives audience engagement, as well as paid social media paid advertising. Some of the major social media networks that are utilized today you may or may not be familiar with such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, Snapchat, etc.

No matter how big, small, new, or old, social media marketing (SMM) is amongst the most effective tools of integrated marketing that can help your business.

To help you understand why social media marketing is crucial, we have listed below a handful of reasons.
THE BENEFITS OF SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Reach the majority of your target audience
No matter what type of service or product your business offers, the majority of your customer base is reachable via social media marketing (SMM). Almost every individual around the globe has some form of internet accessibility. A recent study conducted at the Pew Research Center found that 68% of American adults are Facebook users. In the 18 to 24-year-old demographic, 78% use Instagram and 45% are on Twitter. And even among Americans that are 65 or older, 37% are social media users.
Social Media can boost traffic for your website
Sharing appealing content onto your social media pages can be a very effective way of directing customers and potential customers to your website, where they may be compelled to look through your product catalog and make a purchase. Paid advertising through social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Yelp) can be an effective way to get people to your site for pennies on the dollar.
Social Media can help in lead generation
Through social media marketing analytics, your business can easily and with low-commitment determine if your marketing efforts are generating interest from your customers. Lead generation is perhaps one of the most important benefits of social media for small businesses, and for this very reason, many social networks have begun offering advertising formats specifically designed to collect leads.
