The Top Social Media Networking Sites for Small Business Owners

There are hundreds of social media networking websites, all with different features and varying levels of popularity and relevance to different companies.

Many small business owners simply do not spend the time to keep connected to them and learn the advantageous that each might have for their business.

The following is a list of important social media networking sites that small business owners should utilize to share content, increase social media referrals and interactions, and gain new leads, customers, and sales.



Facebook Social Media Networking

Facebook is currently the king of social media marketing websites, featuring personal profiles and business profiles. Millions of people use Facebook for social networking every day, using the site to plan activities, get advice on products and services, and share content from any website that they find interesting with friends, coworkers, family members, and in many cases, complete strangers.

Business owners who do not already use Facebook should take a few minutes to create a profile and see who they can quickly connect with through email contacts and more! The owner can then create a business profile and even assign others to manage the profile page with access and permissions established by the owner.



Twitter Social Media Networking

Although over 70% of all tweets tweeted are never noticed, this social media networking giant remains a valuable resource for small business owners marketing their brands, products, and services on the internet. Twitter allows business owners to connect with other recreational and professional social media users, and allows for search options including location to target users talking about a specific subject - image the possibilities!

Interesting tweets are re-shared and content can quickly be displayed to social media networks of thousands of viewers. There is a direct messaging ability, but it is limited to 140 characters like a tweet and is full of automated messages - SPAM - so it is not really a useful feature.



Linked In Social Media Networking

Linked In is one of the most trusted social media networks of business professionals, usually as a reference point or social résumé. Recently Linked In allowed business owners to create business profiles to help market the brand, products, and services of the company.



Pinterest Social Media Networking

Pinterest is a great place to connect with other social media users by interest, through browsing shared links featured by photos. It is a great social media networking tool to share content to targeted audiences by genres.



Reddit Social Media Networking

Reddit is a site where links to content are shared and rated by community users. Topics are well organized, searchable, and visible in the social media networks. Reddit can be a huge referral source of traffic for the right types of content.



Delicious Social Media Networking

Delicious is another social media networking website that rates and shared links like the Reddit website.



Merchant Circle Social Media Networking

Merchant Circle has proven to be a great (SEO) search engine optimization tool for many small business owners and a powerful social media networking platform. Profile information for the companies are displayed prominently in search engines for increased search engine visibility and the profile site offers other great (SEO) search engine optimization tools like promotions, newsletters, blogs, and more! It can also be integrated with other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

Small business owners can connect with other small business owners in their area as well as customers searching for products and services in their area. Merchant Circle has an aggressive social media marketing campaign and can generate lots of page views to your website and web pages.



YouTube Social Media Networking

YouTube is a great way to connect with social media users by interest and to share information in video format that can be search by thousands of users each day. Popular YouTube videos that go viral in social media networking sites can earn millions of page views!
