Why another Social Media Blog?

Welcome to How to Use Social Media for Business.

I have spent the last couple of years working with small businesses who are trying to get their heads around how they use social media to development their awareness, understand what customers are saying about them, trying to drive traffic to their website or store etc etc,

After thinking about the types of questions that I regularly get asked, I thought I would put pen to paper (OK fingers to keyboard) and share some of my thoughts, tips and best practices that have been formed through practical implementation and a constant need to keep up to date.

This is early days, so please stay with me as this site develops.
