  Business Best Practices 
  • Making social media work harder for your business
    Small businesses without a lot of money to spend on marketing can make a splash cheaply with social media, provided they use it to post videos, use location apps to find customers and connect with fellow entrepreneurs, writes Timothy Carter, who oversees operations and social media at Smash Hit Displays. Carter's other tips: Use social media to drive people to your company's website, reward customers with discounts and build a personality for your firm with posts you write.

It can get overwhelming to understand how to shape your message on all the platforms available, but one thing is constant, writes Scott Anderson, marketing director at On Hold Company, and that's the customer. Successful companies shape their messages to the client, not the platform, he writes. B2C Marketing Insider (2/26) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
