The Best Social Media Platform For Your Business

As you would already know, social media has largely impacted the marketing industry but in deciding which platform works the best, that will have to depend on what kind of business.

For example, if you own a photography business, or a bakery, it might make more sense to use Instagram. Instagram’s main feature is photos. So if you are selling your artwork for example, use Instagram. Not only that. This platform also allows you to post short videos. So for those of you who own a bakery or sell artwork, give your audience an insight to how you bake that cake, or a time-lapse of your sunset masterpiece.

On the other hand, if you run a more complex business, maybe use Facebook. Facebook allows you to share more contents than Instagram. You can post blogs, videos, pictures, and clients can communicate with you.

Below are some of the most powerful social media platforms which every marketer should include in their marketing strategy.
