Im a bit confused about your question but in order to gain customers social media is almost crusial now days. And it doesn't end there. You need to have a nice profile on Yelp, Google Places and other online services like that in order to truly succeed. There are some businesses that actually do that for you! I dont want to advertise here but if you want to know about them just Email me.
