Hi Everyone
We are a small recycling company based in Ireland and we provide recyclign services to commercial customers in Ireland. People keeping telling me that twitter and facebook are the best means to promote our business but I don't think they are because any twitter followers I ever get are always in a different country and only my friends follow us on facebook.

Maybe someone with expert social networking marketing on the best approach if at to utilise twitter and facebook to promote our brand

Thanks

Facebook and Twitter are communication tools and whenever there is communication there is potential for marketing :-). As a small business you can definitely use Facebook and Twitter to market your business but it depends on how you formulate your strategy and what sort of audience you want to target.

The best way to approach different people on Facebook and Twitter is to participate in the ongoing discussions but make sure you add value to the conversation rather than seeming spammy.

I think facebook and twitter is most important tools for marketing their products. They are great social media sites to promote and discuss about their products with the peoples. You can also use a option of share link which enable you to attach a link of a website. Also you can upload the videos for advertisement.

Hello there

There is two different benefits for you to promote your services on social networking channels like facebook and Twitter firstly Creation of Brand Awareness and generate traffic to your website, secondly generate sales.

You first objective will be meet regardless which geographic location your followers are in but to meet the second objective you have to build local follower base, It can take a while but you should consider to stick there and keep sharing your contents and trust me this will eventually paid off.

You said that only your friends follow you on Facebook. Well,you can ask them to reccomend you to their fb friends and so you'll end up having a bigger online community to promote your services to.

Yes, both Twitter and Facebook are effective marketing tools for small business. Here, users can communicate with each other or share their thoughts through small good content. Also, small businesses can provide information relating to their products and services to more and more visitors and have great profits.

Both of the two social networking sites are much familiar for the business earning because of the user's and moreover you can use this for web promotion in SEO way as for traffic because search engine will consider all those links.
