Survey Says Small Business Owners Are More Successful on Facebook Than They Think

A new survey from Constant Contact UK reveals that small business marketers have set the bar too high for themselves and so they’re not happy with the outcome. But the truth of the matter, is that many small businesses are doing a very good job of marketing through social media.
