There are just some cases where a small business owner or entrepreneur should not rely on social media as an answer. Especially solely. This is one of them.
Reason # 4: The Need to Increase Sales Quickly
Social media efforts create awareness, as a form of word-of-mouth, which can drive sales over time. The key is that there is no guarantee of a shorter sales cycle or a deluge of transactions as a result of singular social media efforts. When combined with other marketing efforts that have been carefully orchestrated, however, short-term sales can be improved. Overall, when there is an immediate need to increase sales, small business owners should not turn to using Facebook or Twitter more often as a solution. Deeper evaluative skills and more strategy development are required to fix sluggish sales.
