For any new or established business, social media should be at the heart of your marketing efforts. Research shows that many people will browse the internet on multiple devices - moving from smartphones and tablets to desktops to complete their research and purchases. They will be looking for reassurances that your brand is trustworthy by looking for reviews, tweets, comments and the recommendation from social circles so it is important to be active in these areas.
