I love when people tell me social media isn’t for local small businesses…
Sometimes I debate with them.
Other times I smile and nod, knowing it’s a futile argument.
Most often I point them to examples like the ones I’m sharing with you today: 6 real-life small businesses profiting from social media.
Here’s an excerpt I especially like. From Justin Levy, co-owner of Caminito Argentinean Steakhouse:
As far as our ROI on social media efforts, of course it’s always hard to determine that. But, what I do know is that since we turned our focus to social media, attracting inbound links, more internet marketing/less print advertising, etc., we have seen an approximate 30 percent boost in sales (year to date) in a time where a lot of restaurants are down 10-20 percent.
