Why Does My Business Need Social Media?

What's everyone talking about?  It's time to find out!

Ask yourself this question:  When was the last time I pulled out the Yellow Pages to look for a business?

Chances are, if you need a plumber, or a caterer, or a realtor, you go looking for them on the internet.  Whether you're using big search engines like Google, or you're simply sending an e-mail to your friends, one way or another you're using Social Media to find what you're looking for.

"Social Media" is simply a term that means "How we communicate online."  And 21st century consumers who want to communicate with you are likely to do it through some form of Social Media.

For a lot of business owners, this is a daunting and perhaps overwhelming reality.  "I own a great restaurant!  People love my food!  Isn't that enough?"

Well, unless your restaurant is one of the lucky few that thrives strictly by word-of-mouth (pun not necessarily intended) then the answer is probably, "No.  It's not enough at all."  The economy is tough, competition is tight, and every customer counts.

That's where Social Media can make a huge difference in alerting potential clients to the existence of your business.  And if you're far too busy keeping that restaurant cooking to update your web site or professional Facebook accounts, then what you need is a Social Media Manager.

We do that here at DeNae Handy:PWS.  Click on the copywriting/social media tab up at the top of this page to learn more, or fill out our "Let's Get Started" form. 

Don't panic; this doesn't obligate you to anything.  It's just a good way to see if the Social Media Management services we offer will help your business grow.

Can't wait to hear from you!

  1. Wow! So exciting! I look forward to hearing more, though I am not sure my little four-week-old blog is ready for that...but, then again, what do I know, right? ♥
