If you are a fan of programs such as Dragons Den or The Apprentice, they you will quickly start to realise the impact that marketing can have on a product or an entire business.

Social media is a great marketing platform for all types of businesses and to start with you don’t even need to invest any money in them, just a bit of your time.
