Only 24% SMBs see positive ROI on Facebook
A recent survey done by Manta reveals that only 49% of SMBs had a Facebook page and, out which only 24% were seeing positive ROI. One of the potential reason behind that percentage was found to be that 75% of the SMBs were spending less than two hours per week on Facebook marketing. Also, less than one business publishing was being done per week. Clearly, the gap between the understanding of Facebook marketing by SMBs and its efficient execution needs to be worked upon more diligently.
