Thumbs up What impact does Twitter and Facebook have on your business?

I just got a Twitter account yesterday and a Facebook account today for DigitSmith. What kind of impact does social networking sites have on your business?

Hi Marc,

I will ask anyone where who is brand concerned to book or reserve user name by checking here

http://knowem.com/
http://namechk.com/

Having a brand name reserve will help in brand building, social traffic as well as google will rank your website fast as in recent algorithm (Like Panda or Freshness algo), Google has given more importance to brands.

May be Google Business Page as well as having Google Plus one account or adding Social Counter icons like FB, Twitter, Digg and Google Plus One also can help for more traffic and rankings. I would like to see these social counters on digitsmith.

We don't use twitter yet and recently set up a facebook page for our business but it's too early to tell if it's had an impact. It certainly doesn't hurt since it's essentially free.

We've found it to be useful for relationship building. People ask questions on our Facebook page or Twitter feed, or will say something nice about the service and/or products they received. It also helps get the company name out there.

One thing to remember though, is it helps to be strategic in who you follow/friend. You want to have the right people looking at your account, not random people.

How very strange , I was about to ask the same question about Facebook. Thanks for the post Marc. Ive recently relaunched my web site and opened a Facebook page as well. Suddenly on Facebook I have so many "friends" ( via friends of friends) from my past. People Ive forgotten about and it will be interesting to see if any make contact and bring me work. But , very importantly, I have sent requests to befriend me to my customers. If they accept me then they will have a permanent reminder of me on their page. Free advertising.
Earl.

Probably Facebook. Twitter is fun, but it's fleeting. If you're following a lot of people, it's easy to miss a message. Facebook is a bit more permanent, and you can hold a conversation that everyone can see.

Both are useful, but I'd probably drop Twitter before I would Facebook.
