I have been on Facebook since 2006, Twitter since 2008 and used both platforms as a way to grow the supply company that I used to own. Yes, I even had a very active MySpace account. In the last 3 years, I have also been active at Google + and keep my LinkedIn profile updated quarterly. I also am active on YouTube. So let’s better understand and grow your business with Social Media.
So first off what is the point? Why spend time and effort on this? I think as an industry we are definitely slow to adopt many of the tools available to us with social outlets. If you look at some of the major players in our industry very little time and effort is put into social media. Social media does take lots of time and it is hard to really see the results quickly.

Also, for many in our industry, we are more of an analog industry and are just now getting to the digital age. Pad Printers are a prime example. Wonderful creative and talented people that stamp ink.
They can make just about anything work, but ask a hardcore pad printer their thoughts on the digital sublimation systems is often “that horrible trouble creating machines can take a flying leap… ” But in the right environment with the right market, sublimation can be a savior for a pad printers business. So back to Social media…
So why do we need to be on social media? 37 million people log onto Facebook daily, and in the last 10 minutes, 40,250 Tweets have been posted. How about Google +?
Who does most of us go to when we want to search for something on the internet? There are 5,922,000,000 (Yes that is 5.9 Billion) searches on Google per DAY. Google holds a staggering 67.6 percent of the U.S. search engine market share, according to the latest search engine market share figures for April 2014, released by comScore.
Being on G+ and talking about search terms that are important to your business as well as sharing links to your website on G+ correctly will help your search ranking. By improving your search ranking you will have a better likelihood that someone goes to your website who is interested in the products and services you offer.
So the numbers are right. There is an audience and chances are most of your customers are somewhere on social media waiting for you to interact with them.
