The benefits of a Social Media Presence are:

Posting valuable content establishes your company as an expert in your field.
You can build a solid reputation for your brand based on your company’s values and culture. Online consumers are more likely to purchase a product or service from brands they are familiar with through social media. An established social media presence will increase your SEO (search engine optimization) and bring more potential customers to your web site.
2. Community Engagement
Through social media platforms you can connect with individuals in your field and cultivate these connections through networking and dialogue. With over 1 billion social media users the potential to reach new customers is limitless.
As your followers, fans and connections increase so does your influence. Your posts become far reaching and are often re-posted to others.
The key is to be listening to feedback , be it positive or negative , and responding in a timely fashion. Social media is in real time. All inquiry responses should be made within 24 hours.
