A well maintained social media page will raise awareness about your business. This is how you can proceed with social media:

- Inform your prospect, clients, relatives and friends about your page through phone after a conversation or through email and invite them to join you on social media.
- Show your presence by posting regularly, participating in group conversations and responding to others posts.
- There are ways to invite people to social media itself. Try to have maximum numbers of followers. Please follow guidelines by each social media platform before you invite others or it may attract a penalty as well.
- Display your social media links on your website, email or other marketing materials.
Once you are done with establishing these tools you may go for paid promotions if you feel the need. A calculated investment in paid promotion may lead to positive ROI. You can try Google Adwords, paid promotions on facebook, linkedin or twitter ( depending upon your requirement), display advertisements etc. Once you have started you can go on with several campaigns like lead generation, referral campaigns or awareness campaigns. All of them will lead to business growth eventually.
