If you’ve ever wondered if companies are actually generating more leads and sales by using Facebook… Twitter…LinkedIn… and other social media sites… then you’ll be interested in these success stories.
- Stephen Leighton, launched “Has Bean Coffee”, an Internet coffee-roasting business. Thanks to social media he’s able to sell to his customers around the globe.
- Neenah Paper, a paper products manufacturer, were no longer able to get through to their ideal customers. Using the phone and in-person meetings were not working as well. So Neenah started using Twitter. Today, the company uses Twitter to generate new business.

- Gary Vaynerchuk has built a $50+ million (yes MILLION) wine business by using social media.
You see, using social media is like having your own radio or TV show. You’re able to broadcast your message to people following your postings. And when you do this you’re able to build relationships, make sales, get feedback, inform, release news and educate potential customers.
What’s more, you’re not having to go looking for your prospects. You see, the number of people using social media web sites has exploded. Just consider this; According to The Financial Times, the average time spent by visitors on social media sites in January 2012 is as follows:
- Facebook has 1.2 BILLION users spending 405 minutes/month. That’s 6 hours and 45 minutes.
- Pinterest/Tumblr: 89 minutes. That’s 1 hour and 29 minutes.
- Twitter has 225 million users spending 21 minutes/month.
- LinkedIn has 161 million members spending 17 minutes/month.
BUT, the problem for many business owners using Social Media is this: TIME
Using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the other social media takes up your precious time. Let’s face it; you’ve got a business to run. You got staff to organize. Clients to look after… Meetings to attend… Stock that needs ordering…Deliveries to organize… And 101 other things you need to do and think about to keep your business profitably operating.
And on top of this you NOW need to update your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn every day. Not only this, your updates need to be interesting and engage those people following your postings. So you now need to become a writer as well as running your business.
It’s no wonder so many businesses using Twitter or Facebook start posting updates, news and tips and then after an initial burst of posts, their activity dwindles. Until it stops altogether. You just don’t have time.
Have an Extra Sales Channel Created For You
Yet, used on a regular basis social media can produce a regular supply of leads and sales for your business. Just as many other businesses are discovering. Businesses such as:
