Social media helps small businesses

Small business owners can reach a larger demographic by utilizing social media websites. Businesses of all shapes and sizes can benefit from social media.

Any small businesses looking to curb the high price of rent should also consider self storage units that could supplement office space.

Facebook announced last month that is has reached 1 billion users, successfully doubling the 500 million users in 2010. A 2010 U.S. National Small Business Association study reported that 47 percent of small business respondents used social media for networking purposes. Utilizing social media sites can streamline business operations by reaching more people in a cost effective way.

“Most businesses go exclusively for reach, but advertising only works if users have heard your message again and again,” Yusuf Gad, founder and president of Toronto marketing firm a5MEDIA, told the Toronto Star. "You don’t want to over saturate people with ‘Look at me!’ messages. You want to give people information and engage them in dialogue, thereby offering an incentive for them to follow you.” 

Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether one needs to store filing cabinets or office supplies. What's more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every business person could use to help improve productivity.
