If your business doesn’t yet have a social media presence, then you’re at a disadvantage compared to competitors that do.

But the success you achieve on is dependent on how committed you are to the cause.

So, if you’re serious about using social media as a way of adding value to your business, it’s vital to allocate time and resources to it.
