"2012 was a bumper year for social media marketing, convincingly showing the rest of the world that it’s not just for kids, a game or a silly trend. It’s here to stay – yay!

And the best part? These ideas work just as well for small businesses too. In fact, we have an advantage! We have everything to gain from social media’s accessibility and low-cost, plus our ability to move with spontaneity and flexibility."
