Building their brand name, assisting customer relations and looking for some good old fashioned customer insight - much easier thanks to social media. While social media platforms are for the most part free to enter, the time and effort required to maintain them and to effectively engage with prospective customers can still make the channels prohibitive.

Your time is precious and choosing how to use it effectively is all part of the challenge.
