But what about Social Media?
Tools such as LinkedIn Facebook and Twitter are rising rapidly in popularity in Western Australia with early adopters gaining some success in placing a presence on these sites.
Generation Y and to a lesser extent, Generation X are using Social Media to research products more and more before making their decision to buy a product.

According to the same report, 73.8% of American business who have been using Social Media for years report it has helped them close business.
Facebook is not enough, businesses need to be present across all platforms.
What many fail to realise is that in order for Social Media to be effective you must engage regularly with your users. Time must be spent in promoting your presence effectively across multiple Social Internet Marketing platforms. Foursquare, StumbleUpon, Twitter, Youtube, Google Places and numerous others must all be utilised in order to gain a greater customer share than their competitors and thus better serve their customers.
The biggest barrier that business face when moving into Social Internet Marketing is time.
Time needs to be spent in developing relationships online and keeping your users and customers up to date. Time, unfortunately is very scarce in today's business world. With much time spent with offline customers, often, the online presence is neglected.
Too many Social Internet Marketing profiles are left wallowing in non use, serving no purpose other than to take up digital space. Business owners are simply too busy to keep up with the time commitment needed.
Some businesses employ a dedicated Social Media Manager but the cost is high.
According to a recent Australian job advertisement, ironically, via an advert on a popular Social Media site, the renumeration package was more than 90 thousand dollars a year.
Where does that leave small business?
Fortunately outsourcing is the only affordable way for small to medium size businesses to leverage Social Media Internet Marketing effectively.
