Perhaps it was just a matter of time, but now credit cards (in this case business credit cards) are now being rated in terms of their benefits to social media advertisers. Credit card information and aggregator website CreditDonkey has released a list of the Best Business Credit Cards for Social Media Advertisers. To no surprise, American Express Cards were highlighted in this regard.
Credit cards have always been a valuable tool for marketers, creating an easy way to fund and track the dollars spent on a variety of advertising. And now with the growing social media, an increasing amount of money is being fueled into internet advertisements.
American Express has picked up on marketer’s need and has introduced one of the most rewarding cards for advertisers to date-the NEW Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express. When advertisers see the benefits of the newest card in the American Express business suite, they may be willing to overlook the annual fees that often create a deterrent, especially for small start-ups.
In particular, the Business Gold Rewards Card is noted as offering:
2x points on advertising, gas and shipping; essentially, Social Media Advertisers and other marketers are getting rewarded for utilizing their credit card for their typical business expenses.
Other cards noted as having particular benefits for businesses charging their social media advertising on the cards include the American Express Plum Cards and the Chase Ink Bold charge card.
