Social Media Design, Development & Advice
Do You Need To Use Social Media?
In a word, yes. Your competition do, so they will always have the edge of you don't.
Social media may be very cost effective financially, but not in terms of the time you need to dedicate to it.
Choosing which networks to interact with, strategising brand messages and planning social media can take time and energy.
Time is a cost factor, but bang for buck, as a small or start up business, you can get great brand awareness and market leverage through the planned and consistent use of social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook (our faves), but you should do your research and work out which social media networks relate specifically to your niche market. Wikipedia has a great list of social media sites listed here.

There's no point having a million accounts if you simply won't use them regularly.

See some examples above are samples of branding using Facebook. Miss Blossom Design™ can create a custom sized banners, background and icons to match to look so that you visit sees you in the best light to reinforce your brand message.
The profile picture icon is similar to your final Miss Blossom Design™ designed logo - which we design (as a rule) square, so it can be uploaded as the profile picture for Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus etc..
The Facebook Cover picture is a wide image (like a masthead in a way) and generally we use the logo, logo background and some other reinforcing images to continue through your branding. It is such a simple graphic, that give so much value to your visual brand online, Miss Blossom Design™ encourage whole heartedly that you use this.
