How to choose your social media?
It is very easy. All you have to do is a little research on the competition and see what your competitors are working on. Some might have a Facebook Page while others might use Instagram and this mostly depends on the type of audience as well. If you think your business or product may have a good response on Instagram then you should start creating an Instagram account. Interestingly, Facebook recently bought Instagram and merged all the business tools for businesses to make the best of both platforms using efficient tools and ad services for targeted marketing.
There are other platforms such as LinkedIn or Google Business where you can register and make your business available at every platform for different types of audiences. LinkedIn is more kind of official stuff. Updates and posts are more likely about business growth and development and your connections. Linked In is a very effective platform if you are recruiting employees. On the contrary, Google Business is a tool by Google for creating your business location and updating it from time to time. Google lets you upload your location on the Maps and by a coded verification, your business appears on the Google Maps for your customers to locate you easily. If you are a business that is selling goods then you can also upload your products and use them for advertising purposes.
