According to Hubspot, 92% of marketers in 2014 claimed that social media marketing was important for their business, with 80% indicating their efforts increased traffic to their websites. Here’s a look at just some of the ways social media marketing can improve your business:
- Increased Brand Recognition
- Improved brand loyalty

However, according to Social Media Examiner, 97% of marketers are currently participating in social media—but 85% of participants aren’t sure what social media tools are the best to use as they face challenges in posting meaningful post on a regular basis to be visible on these mammoth social media platforms. High attrition of employees and wrong social media agency are some of the other challenges.
