Small Businesses choose Facebook over directories

Around 36 percent of small businesses in Britain have made Facebook their number one choice when it comes to finding new customers, and as a result are now choosing the social media service over small local business directories. It’s not just these directories that have seen a sharp downturn in business from companies, as they are also choosing Facebook over online and print advertising.

This doesn’t come as any surprise because social media has been growing at an alarming rate and small businesses have now started to embrace the likes of Facebook even more because of how simple and cheaper it is, along with the fact that it has a greater reach.

Small businesses are feeling the strain from the recession and will look at many ways to try and reduce costs while also bringing in new customers, and Facebook is the tool for the job. For some having a presence on Facebook has now become a necessity as it’s a way to get your brand noticed, if you’re not embracing social media then you’re losing out in a big way, well according to this article, but they do have a point.

We know of so many local small businesses who have yet to embrace the likes of Facebook or even Twitter and LinkedIn, and while we have tried to bring them around and tell them they need to start taking advantage of these services, they are still reluctant – are you one of them?
