Social media is an important part of most organisations marketing mix these days, but especially for small business due to its reach and low cost. A small business can create a social media presence online for free in a few simple steps. There are a number of online resources that can assist you to either create a Facebook page for your business or to create an Instagram page for your business.
While the City of Kwinana reserves the use of its social platforms to promote its own programs and services, there are a number of local community groups on Facebook which allow local companies to promote their services and participate in conversations that occur on that page with local Kwinana residents. Small businesses with a social media presence can benefit by participating on local business advertising days in these groups, inline with the terms and conditions for each of the individual groups.
