I found a great post at Duct Tape Marketing which has 5 ways social media can drive business. It’s been said that 2011 was the year of social media marketing.

  • Start a Group – If you’re running a small business then you’re probably an expert on what you do or sell. Why not create a group where you can share your knowledge and have discussions with others passionate about your topic?

  • Location Matters – I love checking in at places. It allows my friends to know where I am and can also get me free swag. I remember when I went into my local comic book store and checked in and got a free water bottle in return. Not only did this make me an even more loyal customer, whenever I check in at the store, I’m giving that business free advertising on my social networks.
