    Social media has helped many small business owners expand on a major scale. It has helped people connect better and share knowledge together. It has overall changed the way we have been living our lives.

    social media definitely help you gain more traffic on your website and I think it just connects people, you meet a lot of amazing people on Internet that you might even start working with

    For many very small businesses, FB is able to give them a web presence for free.

    But I’ve discovered I’m a bit prejudiced in that regard. I do a LOT of searching for campgrounds to stay in over the last 18 months and going forward at least another 12 months. I tend to avoid those with no web presence at all. The ones only on FB are only marginally better. I much prefer those with a web site with the basic details such as nightly/weekly/monthly rate depending on what I’m looking for.

    The better ones combine a web site with a SM page, esp FB.

    As far as more and more using SM, I think many are starting to rethink that. SM can be toxic to your mental well being. Two of my friends left FB recently (as in the last month) but maintain their web presence on my forum.

    Social networks are one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Social media marketing helps to validate your brand. A company's social media presence, when done correctly, tells consumers that their brand is active and focused on thriving communication with consumers. Investing in a social media marketing service may have been identified as the missing link connecting you with your consumers.

    Social media is the free source for you to advertise your business. It may not help you get better ranking in SERP but a good social media campaign may help you get some good customers for your business.

    Previously, social networks were only for communication. Now they are more for business.

    Social is still Google's ranking signal. You can use to promote brand and find effective traffic. I still use them often

    I have noticed that lot of traffic from google search is unreliable and often does not convert. Social media on the other hand is lot better with the traffic and also there are many ways you can use it to bring traffic which suits your niche. So I think it should not be ignored.

    Social media is simply another show of proof for people searching you out as well that you know what you’re talking about! Even I’ve caught myself looking up others whom I was interested in either training, or working with, on Facebook to see that their profile is setup nicely like mine of

    Social media is a massive lead generation, branding, etc for any business or company.
    Without it, a lot of companies are missing out on the bigger picture and what’s still to come!

    In the era of technology, social media is a big platform where you can meet with people virtually through internet and share everything which you want. It save your travelling time as well as money. Social media is more helpful platform for business also to promote their products.

    There are some people who have got better result from social media than the Google adwords. So the social media has gained a lot of value over the period of years.

    I don't usually look at it from the perspective of social media being the end all and be all.
    That mindset is harmful and will lead to you missing some obvious opportunities sometimes.

    I think of it as... What are the best ways to get traffic? In the list of possibilities, social media usually sits there and every-time I think about promoting, I evaluate my options, the effectiveness of each outlet, cost, the time I would need to invest into it, etc.

    Also, while everyone is focusing on one platform, that is sometimes the best time to stake a claim somewhere.

    I use social media to simply connect with my customers. Depends on what's your business is all about, but there is really no reason not to use it. Nowadays after people learn about your business from different platform, 90% of the time they want to see what you got on social media. It's not about direct sales from there, it's like a validity point. If you are working on your own and haven't studied google ads in depth, Instagram or Facebook have much easier learning curve to promote your product. Anyways, in our day and age SMM is vital.

    If your business depends on online marketing, then social media marketing is also an important part of your marketing strategy.
