I think this would be a complicated issue for small size business. Social networking might be a powerful platform, but somehow it needs time and skills. Also it needs promotional strategy.

Re: Importance of Social Networking in E-commerce

It is right. E-commerce provides a virtual online shop for buying and selling stuff. Today there are high number of people who buy online. So you can't simply ignore. Social Networking and Social Media are two different things. In this you engage with a platform who had large amount of user database. Social Media deals with content which are produce in front of people and on them ads are displayed. This gives a short glimpse to users. This is similar to TV media but here the user has option to disable ads or ignore the same. People had gain a good faith over web buying and selling.

Social media can boost the sales or make your product popular within less time. Always when you are selling something you have to show that to people. That is done through marketing. Bigger portals like Amazon, eBay are examples of the same. There are ample of products found on them. They are quiet big today but still I cannot find social networking integration on the same. It is not a one day job. It needs right analysis and research how your product can put maximum impact.

Re: Importance of Social Networking in E-commerce

To some extent social media has number of complexities that you might face. It is not easy to understand at all. It is a regular day watch. The stats generated needs time which can tell you the right information on product performance. It is not complicated to figure out, but still needs time to understand. For small size business social networking can be really very effective, but this will be a recurring cost.

There might way when you start working and will gain knowledge as time goes on.

Re: Importance of Social Networking in E-commerce

I will recommend to add Social networking with E-commerce. This both would be the best effective solution according to me. Just starting the store and waiting for getting user traffic is extremely useless according to me.
