    Social media is the place where "n" number of users are visiting every moment. Promoting your business is very much helpful to reach the people.

    I'm a member of Teespring where you can design your custom t-shirts and launch a campaign & earn a profit if people purchase your clothing. I've considered doing some Facebook advertising for getting sales, but are sponsored posts any better than making just a fan page with thousands of likes and members? At least there is no financial risk.

    I think using social media to promote your business, product, website or service is a great and free way of advertising. It has its advantages:
    • It is free
    • It is efficient
    • You can reach people all around the world
    • It is convenient
    • It is very easy to do
    • You can do it anytime, anywhere
    So really, social media is a great way to advertise because of these reasons. I cannot even think of a downside for using social media although I'm not really sure if there is one.

    I've learned to share things that I have made (stuff that I actually sell) in different local swap and trade groups. I have had such a great response and have actually gained a lot of business that way. It's hard to advertise on no budget, but that seems to have helped me out a lot. Honestly if it weren't for social media, our business wouldn't have made it anyway. It's still slow going, but we do get a lot of requests for things.

    All that is true, but there is also a hidden risk: the nature of the medium makes it easy for a PR disaster to occur if you are not careful. There is no way to mess up a tv commercial, for instance, it goes trough a rigorous process of revision before making it to the air, social media posts on the other hand are almost real time communication, and you run the risk of inadvertently tweeting or making a facebook post that ends up being inappropriate by the fact that suddenly a tragic event has occurred. Do you remember the PR disaster that was a very inappropriate tweet that US airways published? That was horrible but quite hilarious at the same time. I am not even going to link to that because it was explicit material.
