Why Should My Business Use Social Media?
In highly competitive portable restroom rental markets, social media is an indispensable resource for communicating with people throughout your local region and beyond, to share information and other critical resources for your success. This form of business/social interaction:
• Humanizes your business, letting customers, prospects and employees get to know you a little on a more personal level. That’s an exceptional opportunity to build the kinds of relationships that lead to loyalty, prized word-of-mouth advertising, and long-term repeat and referral business growth.
• Making yourself or someone from your company available to engage with your customers and prospects in online social spaces also accommodates users’ preferences to interact with their vendors online, and in less formal, more organic business/social environments.
• It expands people’s options for communications with your business, letting them use whatever means of communication they prefer, instead of being limited to phone calls and emails.
• It also places you and your business in the locations where your customers and prospects already are. It puts you in the environments where they’re spending time with friends and doing other business.
• In addition to engaging on your social page, you can run ads on Facebook, and you can boost your ads for small additional fees, to multiply their distribution by amounts that you choose.
