If you are still wondering if you should take the dive into social media, here are 5 reasons why it is important for your business.
1 The conversation is already there. Be a part of it.
Social Media is already active with millions of users. Odds are there are many people that are already actively talking about your brand. The reason it is important to be out there is to give your side of the story. Paint your picture and highlight what you have to offer.
2 Share your why.
If three people are selling the same product yet yours has more meaning, they will choose you. Social media also offers paid ads so that you can showcase your why to a larger audience than those already familiar with you or your site.
3 It gives you a chance to listen to your audience.
You cannot improve your product unless you know what the demand is. Social media gives you that audience and easy access to what their demand is.
4 Answer questions and address rumors.

5 Show your expertise
