Social media has progressed at an alarming rate over the last ten years. While we might have started out with websites like Faceparty and Myspace, modern equivalents are now geared a little more towards the business user. Indeed, those company owners who don’t use social media will almost certainly miss out on a lot of sales over the coming years. For that reason, we thought it wise to publish an article today that highlights the best sites you should already be using. Take a few moments to read through all the suggestions below, and you should come away with a better understanding of what they can do for your business.
Right at the top of our list has to be Facebook. That is by far the most-frequently used social network on the planet at the current time. With around 270 million daily users, business owners are missing out on a huge market if they fail to use this network as a promotional tool. Best of all? Facebook offers a cheap advertising tool that allows you to target your efforts towards the people who are most likely to be interested. That means you won’t be wasting lots of money putting your ads in front of people who aren’t going to click them. Also, there is no minimum spend, so you won’t break the bank when trying out new ideas.
Next in line is Twitter. While you might only be able to post a few characters, this social network is the best place online to read breaking news. Indeed, that is why so many people use it on a daily basis. Twitter are currently rolling out a paid advertising program for business users, although it is expected to be inferior to the tool offered by Facebook. Even so, it’s best to have your fingers in as many pies as possible, right? Twitter is also a brilliant site for creating high-levels of traffic.

Many business owners fail to see the benefits to using YouTube for promotion, and so we thought it was wise to mention them here today. Millions of people all over the world use this site to watch videos and stay updated with their favourite celebrities, etc. Business owners care create short clips that promote their products or services and upload them for free. For the best results, you should aim to create interesting content and slip your advert in at the appropriate time. People are unlikely to watch and share content that solely consists of advertising.
Flickr is a great place for finding royalty-free images online. Thousands of bloggers from all around the world use the site on a daily basis when writing their articles. By uploading images they might want to use that contain your company logo, you could encourage the bloggers to do a lot of promotional work on your behalf. If you make the images available under creative commons licensing, they will almost certainly get used in blog articles from time to time.
Now you know about the best social media websites on the internet today, we hope you will open some accounts and start work as soon as possible.
See you next time!
