A recent survey by Manta has highlighted that up to 90% of small businesses regularly use social media in one form or another! Whether it’s having an active presence on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any of the smaller platforms, there’s no doubting that if you want to have an active an effective online presence for your business, you can’t ignore how powerful social media is!
The study highlights that, of those small business owners questioned, a staggering 42% said that at least 25% of their new business comes from social media in one form or another. This is a huge figure and one which, on it’s own, shows the importance of social media for small businesses.
What also came to light, however, was that 58% of those spoken to stated that they struggle with promoting their businesses on social media sites. Whether this is due to not having the time or knowledge to do it properly depends on the individual. Of course, you don’t need to handle everything on your own!
