Social media marketing has become an essential tool for online success! FaceBook alone claims to have in excess of 1 billion users! When you combine FaceBook with Twitter (500 million users), LinkedIn (225 million users), and Google plus (343 million users) it opens up a whole new world just waiting to hear about your product or service. Social media spreads the work by way of “word-of-mouth” so if a person likes what you offer they recommend you to friends and relatives and they in turn pass it one. Traditional advertising methods still have value but as more people turn to social media the trend is changing.
