Why You Can’t Postpone Investing In Social Media

Writers Write creates blogging resources and shares blog writing tips. In this post, we look at why you can’t postpone investing in social media.

The average social media user spends 2 hours and 25 minutes per day using social networks and microblogs. As a business, you need to invest in social media.

The Internet brings Writers Write more than 90% of its business. Almost every query we have for a course, a consultation, or a service originates through social media channels and our blog. Placing content in print media, on the radio, or on billboards would be a waste of time and money for us.

If you look at the statistics below, we know we’re not the only ones. South Africans spend more time on the Internet than Americans and Europeans.

Last year, social media users increased from 2 billion to 3 billion users. It is mind-boggling, but it cannot be ignored.

The graphs from this report includes statistics for more than 240 countries, and it profiles 30 of the world’s biggest economies, including South Africa.

The average internet user spends 4 hours and 25 minutes using the net each day. South Africans average more than 5 hours of use per day:

Simply having a social media presence will not bring you business. Mindlessly tweeting and posting special offers on Facebook will not work. Social media without a blog will not work. You have to learn how to use it so that you can turn it into a reward for your business.
