Did you know that recent data showed that 90 percent of marketers are now using social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook for their business, and 93 percent of those rated these tools as “important”?

However, experience does improve results – 72 percent of marketers who have worked in social media for three or more years said that they had seen a direct boost in turnover.

Moreover, 91 percent of experienced marketers said that social media had improved website traffic, and 79 percent said that it had helped to generate more quality leads.
