Social Media is an important tool for inbound marketing. If you think having a social media presence doesn’t make sense for your business you are sorely mistaken and here’s why, you may not be using social media but chances are your target market does.
Social media allows for direct communication between you and your customers or leads. It can play a key role in delivering your marketing content and enhancing your brand visibility. Maintaining an active brand presence on social media helps you increase your search engine rankings, giving you greater control over your online image.

Social media also plays a big role in your search engine visibility. Google has even started to include Google+ status updates into its search engine results.
