Many smaller size ecommerce entrepreneurs are cost conscious and must try to get the most bang for their buck when it comes to marketing. A recent Zoomerang study shows clearly that Facebook leads the pack for social media marketing among these smaller businesses.
Social media is increasing in popularity for marketing. Research shows that about 44% of small business marketers in the United States have used or are now using social media in 2011, an increase of 10% from Zoomerang and GrowBiz Media’s http://www.growbizmedia.com/ October 2010 research, showing that for many small businesses social media is rapidly morphing into the best and most cost effective way to make a connection with potential buyers and existing customers. Of the 44% of small businesses using social sites, about 59% spend less than $100 on social media marketing.
Small businesses seem to be focusing their social media marketing efforts on the three big sites: Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Facebook is continually beefing up its products and applications, but most small businesses are playing it safe with the basics. Approximately 51% of US small businesses are finding that Facebook wall posts work the best for marketing, although only about 16% of United States consumers said that they had experienced any interaction with a particular brand on Facebook. Not much of a percentage, but this percentage will probably increase as time goes on and in fact, around 68% of people report that they have “liked” a brand on Facebook.
If you have a small home dropship business, you might benefit from looking over some of these charts and tailor your social media marketing efforts accordingly.
