“Does my company NEED social media?” is a very common question these days. You will hear people from smaller communities (such as Steinbach) who are willing to fight to the death denying the importance of social media.
The reality is Social Media is here to stay.
More and more people are turning to the internet for their source of information. According to Search Engine People (an online internet marketing company) there are statistics to support this statement (keep in mind, these stats are from 2010–meaning according to growth trends these numbers are more than likely higher now):
The Canadian Population is over 34,000,000 strong.
25,086,000 (or 73.78%) of those Canadians use the internet (Yes, even your spouse’s mother is using it! (also this blog contains more brackets than it should.))
97% of internet users USE THE INTERNET TO RESEARCH PRODUCTS OR SERVICES IN THEIR LOCAL AREA!!
Canadians spend an average of 44 hours online per month. Double the global average.
