But it also has some great things to offer for a small business that caters to consumers (ie. B2C).
Today more than ever businesses and business professionals are looking for way to gain more exposure and to network with others. Networking is about building connections with others. These can be businesses that you hope to possibly work with or individuals that you’d like to learn more about or use their services.
The social media world has become an outlet for many to build not only their reputations but the reach of their businesses as well. Social media allows people and businesses to connect with others that they normally would not have come in contact with.
For the business professional there is a social media outlet that is designed with them in mind and it’s known as LinkedIn. LinkedIn has a network of over 150 million members all across the world.
