Bryan,
We have been using social media actively for about 7 months now. We have a blog on our web site, a facebook page, twitter account and a linked in account. Our main goal is to generate new leads and increase the traffic to our web site. I'm happy to say that we are succeeding in both of these areas. New clients have found us because they were searching online for the services that we offer.
Keeping on top of social media for your business is a full time job but something that is absolutely necessary in this day and age. It is also very rewarding when you see your efforts paying off!
