The secret to successful social media marketing is to use what you’ve already got. Don’t think you have anything? Think again.
If you’re like most busy business owners, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “I barely have enough time to run my company, now I have to worry about social media?”

If they’re a customer, their friends are probably a lot like them, which means potential customers for you.
