If you write a blog or own an online shop, Twitter and Facebook are your best friends. As the world has become increasingly more social, it’s made it easier for business owners to reach their customers right from their computers. That’s why Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and all the other popular social media tools can be so integral to the success and growth of a small business. Building a presence on either platform can be tough, really tough, but it’s definitely worth the effort to start building a community. Posting new products or new blog posts up on your social media accounts will greatly increase the number of people that view them, even if your following is small. We all want more views to our blogs and sites since views can translate into sales!
