In many cases, it’s often perceived to be that, to mine the maximum promotional returns from your social media strategy, you need to extend your tentacles across many different social media sites, like a digital marketing octopus.
However, as social media sites can significantly differ in their strengths and weaknesses, you should be selective as to which of the following sites you use for each campaign.
Facebook can seem to be a “catch-all” platform, due to its undoubted popularity. Indeed, The Next Web advocates using Mark Zuckerberg’s brainchild for “all types of online content”, as well as publicising not only upcoming events but also your products or services more generally. Through the likes of Facebook ads and Facebook Pixel, you can track your customer’s journey through your website and their reaction to your ads throughout the platform, making it easier than ever to retarget them directly to encourage conversions and brand awareness.

However, if many of your offerings call for an explanation more elaborate than mere imagery, you might want to sensibly limit your Instagram presence.
Long famed as ‘the’ business-oriented social media site, the Microsoft-owned LinkedIn can make an especially comfortable home for businesses promoting services to other businesses as part of the ‘B2B’ market. LinkedIn can also help you in advertising vacancies to job seekers.
Given how intimately brands and their employees are linked on LinkedIn, you could consider using this particular site for ‘behind the scenes’ material, which can also work well on…

Naturally, if you want to share video content, which could include ads, explanations or expertise, YouTube is your go to. It’s easy for you to share YouTube videos on other social media networks, too – and our video production services could help you to bring a professional shine to your videos that you feel you might be lacking.
