Why Social Media Marketing

Even if you paid a fortune for a billboard at Yonge and Dundas, only a small percentage of passers-by would be interested in your product, and then an even smaller number of them would go to the trouble of making and inquiry based solely on your advertisement In the end, the high cost of the billboard would make each sales inquiry far greater than any profit you hope to gain. The same issue is true with any type of print or radio, or television advertising. This day in age, there is one advertising medium worth investing in- Online/Web-based (Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Flickr, 4Square, Pintrest…).
