Still not convinced whether social media marketing is worth your company's time, energy, and effort?

You're not alone. The C-suite at half of brands isn't convinced of social's value, according to the following infographic by Outmarket.

Here's a look at social media marketing's pros and cons.

One reason in favor of it is that "more than 80% of consumers look at online reviews weekly before buying," states Outmarket.

However, on the negative side, social media accounts for only 1.14% of all e-commerce traffic.

Another pro: "90% of the world's data was created within the past two years, thanks to social media," states Outmarket.

Yet social media programs aren't high on the list of CMO's concerns, ranking just sixth.
