What can Social Media do For Local Businesses

So by now unless you have been living in a hole , you know about Facebook and Twiiter and more than likely have accounts and one or both of them. It has amazed most people how fast Social media has taken control of our lives , even my non-tech savvy in laws are browsing the pages of Facebook on a daily basis.
So what does this mean for local businesses is there an untapped market of customers browsing these social media sites that are just waiting to buy our products and Social Media Las Vegasservices. The answer , yes and no, one of the biggest problems with social media is the inability of business being able to convert this huge amount of traffic into customers. There is a few reasons for this the biggest being a lack of understanding on exactly how social media should be used in a marketing campaign. I see it every day a business opens a Facebook account gets a few followers maybe even sets up a fan page then starts post stuff like ” Save 10% by mentioning FaceBook when you come in and buy a blue widget” . After doing this type of marketing for a few weeks they get discouraged and stop posting at all deciding that social media does not produce buyers or the people on FaceBook are young with no money. These assumptions cannot be farther from the truth.
FaceBook and twitter can be a very powerful marketing tool if you understand how to use it and why to use it. The most important thing social media can do for a local business is brand awareness , there are customers on facebook they have money and meet any demographics you target but it takes a soft selling approach to convert them into customers.
Businesses that are successful with social media campaigns do not try and sell customers instead they engage and participate. You are an expert in your field , why not use that expertise to engage in conversations and offer value to your followers. This is going to do quite a bit in converting the follower into a customer , first you have established yourself as a leader in your field , while also earning the trust of a follower. You have built awareness of your brand without ever trying to sell or offer gimmicks that drives customers off. By following these few simple steps you are going to see a much better return from any social media campaign you implement .
