If and when they “Like” your page, they will be making it visible to all of their Friends. Over time, if your Fan page becomes very popular, you will see an increase in sales from all the traffic be directed to it because of “Likes” it will be getting.

Twitter is another great social media platform that allows the user to tweet about the company’s products, or services as well as initiated special deals or links with coupons to possible buyers. Check-out this how twitter lets you see what others are saying about your brand and allows you to reply to them, acting as “customer service” to help them out with their situation. Whether it may be something that they couldn’t find in your store or if they had a bad experience, it allows the Company to get involved in hopes of resolving the matter.

YouTube is free video broadcasting website that allows anyone to create an account and upload videos and search other videos of interest.
