    For local business it seems like it to good to pass up, you can congratulate new customers. Give updates (especially during plowing season) and it gives a really convenient way for existing customers to communicate to you while promoting you to their friends at the same time (likely without even realizing it...)

    It may be a pain in the butt for business owners but I don't understand how so many people ( some of my clients also) can turn it down

    It depends on how you want to spend your time. I'm not convinced social media provides much of a return for the amount of time spent. I think most businesses would prefer to spend their time finding doing marketing to find leads (potential new customers). Other forms of marketing - mail, flyers, a website, advertising, etc. might be more effective than social media. Just my opinion.

    Facebook is free advertisement. I post daily on jobs in progress and completed work. Have gotten a lot of business and I even have the Facebook logo and "find us on Facebook" on the sides of my enclosed trailer. Got the Facebook app on my phone and posting is fast and easy; a whole lot faster than waiting a month for my website lady to add pics to my site.
