In the last ten years the use of Social Media has skyrocketed for businesses; Facebook presented business pages, LinkedIn was created, along with Twitter and Google+. If you’re a growing business and not utilising social media, you are missing out on a critical, free, advertising platform. The statistics are awe-inspiring and most Social Media Marketing specialists recommend (for young businesses) having these pages rather than traditional marketing. 

In July of this year, Australia’s social media statistics, showed that Facebook has a steady 14 million users, (1.49 billion world wide), YouTube is just behind with 13.8 million, and Instagram has 5 million active users. All of these platforms are free to use. It is just a matter of utilizing them correctly.
