Choosing a Social Network for Your Small Business

We all know using social media as a marketing tool is a smart and affordable way for small business owners to spread their message to a broad audience.  Like everything, handling your social media networks in a productive manner can be time consuming, and since small business owners are already pressed for time, it is important to make sure the networks you are focusing on right for your business. Spending time on social networks that aren’t frequented by your audience is a waste of valuable time, however smart usage of these networks can prove very beneficial for their marketing.
