Over 90% of UK small businesses are now using social media – that’s up from 60% last year! Apparently Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are by far the most used social media sites by small businesses, and it’s Facebook that’s the most popular.
According to a new report from PeoplePerHour.com the vast majority of the UK’s 4.5 million small businesses are actively using social media to do things like recruit new staff, find new customers and market themselves.
It’s yet more evidence of the ‘shift’ in the way we are doing things and clearly it shows that businesses are recognising that this social media stuff is not just for 14 year old Justin Beiber fans!
So, 2 questions for you:
- What does that mean for you and your business – opportunity or threat?
- What do you need to do to find out?
