Tips for an Effective Social Presence

As we’ve mentioned in prior posts, the importance of social media for business is at an all time high. According to a recent social survey, 68% of people who search for products/services online will visit the Facebook page (if one exists) of a business before they visit their website or proceed to make an offline interaction if they have a brick and mortar location. This means that not only is it important for your business to have a consistently updated Facebook presence, but that with the right strategy your business can make incredible strides in terms of growth and audience engagement.

Here are some tips to consider when using social media for your business:
