- Is Social Media Presence Important?
Social media presence is extremely important for your business. According to research, 84% of adults use some form of social media for an average of four hours a day. Marketing Weekly states, “Social media is an integral part of any small business success strategy.” Having an active social media presence creates credibility for your business.

Unless you have a very specific niche that fits a certain platform, start with facebook. With Facebook’s daily two million users, it is the largest social media platform. A clear, focused marketing strategy on Facebook is the best way to reach your audience.
