The popularity of Facebook is continuing to grow for small to medium sized businesses to market their wares. Recent stats tell us that about 70% of merchants are now using Facebook to some degree to promote and market their business. That number is up from last year which was 50%.
Facebook is now the most popular online method of marketing for local businesses. Yes…even more popular than the “big G”, Google at 66%.
The top methods of marketing for local business are; Social Media, SEO/SEM, and Email.
Small businesses are still challenged when it comes to online marketing because of their limited and rather small budgets. They typically have no marketing expertise or resources either. It’s because of this that the methods that are gaining the most attention from small businesses are those that offer low cost, simple solutions that can provide immediate results.
