Most times small business owners play multiple / every role in their company. They are required to do the accounting, marketing, public relations, business development, and customer service. It is not hard to see then why they don’t have time to dedicate to a social media strategy.
Big businesses instead hire people and / or agencies specifically for social media marketing and smaller businesses are usually being left behind.
That’s how it works in most countries.
In Oman we could say that it is pretty much the other way around; some small business owners and entrepreneurs are fighting even harder. Apart from doing everything in terms of accounting, marketing, etc. they have also jumped onto the social media bandwagon in a much more aggressive way than the big boys who let big agencies looking after their communication requirements (do they really??)
