In today’s internet world, it is believe that if you are not using social media being a small business then you are actually running a dead business. Seriously, how can a person run a business if he is not active on social media or at least, he doesn’t create a social media profile or page for his business? You will be surprised to know about some small businesses that are not only working properly without aid of social media but they are also considered as the successful small businesses as well.
1. Metropolitan Health Networks
If you are living in Florida then you can take health care advantage with the help of this organization that assists the patients with Medicare Advantage or Medicaid throughout the state. The company doesn’t use social media and the reason is quite obvious for them. Most of their patients are 76+ years of age so there is no need for the organization to setup a Facebook page to bring more clients towards them. However, one of the reps told us that the company is reviewing the communication policies and there is a possibility of one or more social media profiles included in future.
2. Questcor Pharma
If you work in the health care industry or you are somehow related to the pharmaceutical industry then you must have heard the name of Questcor Pharma. This company manufactures the medicines for such diseases that are life threatening for patients. There is no doubt that company is very famous in the pharmaceutical circle but still, they don’t have a Facebook page made by themselves. There is a Facebook page made by Facebook for directory purpose but the company doesn’t have an official social media presence at all.
3. IPG Photonics
IPG photonics is a very famous and popular name in the industry of fiber optics. They create fiber optics for telecommunication companies, medical companies and many government organizations as well. They have got the latest technology to bring innovative products for their customers yet they don’t have a social media presence at all. You may find some pages on Facebook with their name but according to company officials, no page has been created by the company itself.
4. United Therapeutics
A moment ago, we talked about Questcor that is a pharmaceutical company working for those patients with life threatening problems and United Therapeutics is another company working in the same field. However, this company designs and manufactures such therapeutic procedures that are helpful for patients and they don’t deal in drugs at all. The company doesn’t have an official Facebook page or any social media profile. It is quite common for healthcare companies to shy away from social media because it causes liability risk for their business.
