Marketplace – There is a gigantic marketplace where thousand of people buy and sell products kind of like a huge car boot sale but in the comfort of your own home and you get more than 20 pence for your items.  Yu can browse through pictures, descriptions and price of product and even put the filter on location first bringing up people closest to you.  Some of these products are still new and in the wrapper but discounted because they are second hand

Advertise – You can very easily advertise yourself on social media for a very low cost and depending on the kind of business you are, even post pictures and videos of what you do to entice people to visit your site.  Some businesses go as far as using it to create competitions to win prizes but cleverly signing people up as a friend or creating new accounts with them to gain data. Once again the great thing is once one person has seen and liked it they could have up to and beyond a hundred friends who might then see it and share it.

Meetings – Social media can be used to call clients through an internet connection which is very handy when you want to see them face to face.
