Creating a page on social networking sites allows potential customers looking for your products or services to find you quicker and easier and also to stay in contact with you. With your business page you are able to update and inform potential customers on new products, services or offers you may have on. Potential customers are then able to ‘like’ your page which allows them to view all of your updates 24 hours a day.

You are also able to create a group on sites such as Facebook, which allows you to update your group adding information, contents and news to inform potential customers of your business. When a person joins your business group they are able to talk and ask questions much easier than they would be able to via your website or blog.

Using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace ensures that only people who are searching for your products or services are able to see your business and your information meaning that you are targeting potential customers that are more likely to visit your website.
