With Facebook having over 1.3 billion active users, Instagram over 500 million active users and Twitter over 313 million users social media is easily the best way to reach a vast audience.

Whether you want to become a social butterfly or just want to make a bit of a buzz, it can be tough to build up an effective social media account. We’ve scoured the web and have found a few companies that will help you setup your business with a quality social media account, that can potentially turn into a selling platform for your dream job.


HOW SOCIAL MEDIA CAN HELP YOU

Social media gathers massive amounts of data about your potential customers, like what they’re interested in and how they feel about you and your brand. This is hugely valuable to you as an entrepreneur because knowing more about your customers means you’re more likely to be able to produce designs they’re interested in.

Innocent drinks are a huge social media success and they do this by interacting with fans directly and creating real-time marketing campaigns that match their innocent brand name. By taking a less direct marketing approach they create a more engaged community, resulting in happy and loyal customers. Check out their update for the launch of the Iphone 6:
