Island Social Media is the most powerful advertising source on the Island.
Island Facebook on good Friday 2013 hit 25,000+ user likes. Compared to Anna Maria Island Chamber's Facebook page of 2,000 active users.
Bing Search tied directly into Facebook has added additional exposure.
Google's social media G-Plus is catching up with Facebook.
Traditional advertising and in business credibility has changed.
i.e. You must be a member of Chamber of Commerce and listed with Better Business Bureau!
When all you need to do is post your experience on Facebook to your friends.
Everyone talks on Facebook. You can trust what friends and family says.
No one will take the time to post reviews on Google and Yelp unless it's exceptional or a really bad experience.
Have been in the web business for over 30yrs. and don't have all the answers.
