American States With The Most Social Media Activity in Small Businesses - Awakin your business to the influence of Social Media

The small business sector represents 65% of the economy - so what are you doing to stand out from the crowd? Radius, a company providing sales intelligence for the small business market, released a report ranking cities based on the social media usage of its small business owners.
Generally speaking states on the West Coast are much more active with their social media, with New York coming in 7th!
But some East Coast and Midwest cities are making strides to stand out on social media:
Grand Rapids, Mich., (29%) and Oklahoma, Okla., (28%) have the highest percentage of SMBs with Facebook pages.
Buffalo, N.Y. (20%) and Rochester, Minn., (20%) have the highest percentage of SMBs with Foursquare check-ins.
CEO and founder of Radius, Darian Shirazi was quick to highlight the importance of Social Media “It’s important for small businesses to utilize social media to engage with customers, develop higher awareness, identify and attract new customers, which can all directly impact the growth of their business.”
So how can you use this information? Well considering that 59% of smartphone users  connect to social networking sites via their device you mat want to consider a mobile app for your small business!
