    Depends on the business, your marketing strategy, the products or services you provide and your target customer.

    Think of social media like ads. They are meant for exposure. Not necessarily sales in that context.

    If your market uses social media, then it's important.

    If your market's buying behavior is influenced by social media, then it's important.

    If you think a bigger market for your business exists in social media, the it's important.

    Otherwise, it's just another marketing tool

    The first and main advantage of the social media is connectivity. People from anywhere can connect with anyone where you can share your issues with the community to get help and giddiness.You can update yourself from the latest happenings around in the world.

    You can promote your business to the largest audience because social media can also improve business sales and reputation. Positive comments and sharing about a company can help them with sales and goodwill. The whole world is open for you, and can promote to them. Social media can also be used for the noble causes that’s why it create awareness and innovate the way people live.

    Social media is mostly an important part of a business. To spread your business quickly, you need social media. Social media like Facebook, Instagram are mostly used for social media marketing. You can easily increase your visitors in a short time with the help of social media. I mostly use Facebook for my Niche site business.

    @Business Loan Leads, social media may help some businesses but it’s not something you need.

    Amazon seems to do ok without it.

    Social Media is where all the attention is at the moment. If there are people on Social Media why would you not want your business to be there?
    The idea is that Social Media is Social, so the best way to market your business by being Social, sharing posts and creating content that is informative and relevant to your clients. Not just posting SELL, SELL, SELL and Advert after Advert every day.

    Very good question. I hope my reply below answers your question.

    Customers are increasingly savvier and more discerning about which businesses they support. Before making a decision, they’ll do a quick search to browse your website and social media.

    Will they find an empty storefront or a rich source of information? Setting up robust profiles that you update frequently with relevant content will build your brand’s authority and make sure you make a positive first impression through social media, showing that your business is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and approachable.

    Look for ways to demonstrate your expertise as a thought leader in your industry—like writing pieces related to your expertise or expanding on your company’s mission. By showing what your business offers and values, you will establish confidence in potential customers.
