    I think YES. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are best tools to promote the business. There are number of other ways too to advertise, such as Free online ads sites. You don't have to spend money on the promotion and it will bring you good traffic to your website too.

    Social media is the best way to conduct business if your Marketing Strategy entails engaging with the consumers. Social media allows two-way communication but the brands need to talk to the consumers rather than talking at them. Listening is the most essential part of engagement. Marketers today use Listening tools like Meltwater to monitor their social media. However, social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin have become way too intrusive and cluttered for brands to easily interact with the audience. But a platform like Kinnect2 makes it a lot easier and beneficial. The social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter have such low engagement rates that it's impossible to get anything productive from the audience so we should opt for platforms like Kinnect2 which offer around 33% organic reach.

    it's just one of the channels. And whether it's best or not, depends on the business type and target audience. There are a lot of samples, when other alternatives play better game in promoting business. However, to be maximally successful with this, of course social media must be used in combo with other channels.

    Yes, this is the important channel to get traffic and increase brand awareness. Beside of that, many small/medium online shopper using social media to promo their products as well as selling on this. Using FB Ads is also a paid way to push these activities.

    Social media A powerful tool of communication, social media allows companies to reach their customers where they are, while also characterizing their brands and expanding their customer base.

    It's just a single medium, but can be rather effective. Especially if you're good in keeping up to date with your subscribers.
