How Businesses Use Social Media - A Report

Social Media Report
March 2009

Michael Stelzner just published his brand new Social Media Marketing Industry Report

The question answered in this report is “How Marketers Are Using Social Media to Grow Their Businesses”.

He set out to uncover the “who, what, where, when and why” of social media marketing with this report. Nearly 900 of his peers provided the kind of insight that previously has not existed. In this report you'll find:
  • The top social media marketing questions marketers want answered
  • How much time marketers are investing in social media
  • The benefits of social media
  • How time invested impacts results
  • The top social media tools
  • And much more!

If you're pondering starting social media marketing, these findings will help push you over the edge. If you're already onboard, feel free to examine what the really experienced marketers are doing (and use this study to persuade others).

Check out the details and download the report for yourself, I finished reading it a couple of minutes ago, and found it worthy to spread the message.
