Thrive Media- 10 Minutes
WHY SOCIAL MEDIA?
The beautiful (and scary) thing about the internet, is that it knows a lot about people.
Once you know your target audience and market, it is possible to target these people directly- saving money by reaching the people you want!
Unlike other forms of marketing, with Social Media you can SEE what you’re getting for your money with valuable insights.
Information like the age, gender, location, interests of your customers is available– and it’s free to access.
Basic Social Media is FREE, while still being able to get the above benefits of being measurable and targeted.
Professional agencies can manage your Social Media accounts for your business at a cost–the results will be much more effective and a lot more people will be reached due to targeted advertising.
