Why Social Media is so important
Facebook is the most widely used social media application for businesses around the globe. It has 2.4 billion monthly active users, and this number continues to grow.
Businesses on Facebook can create their own company pages that people can follow to gain information on event listings, product information, B2B networking and more. Simple to create and available to a massive audience, setting up a Facebook page for your business should be one of the first steps in any social media marketing strategy.
77% of Global 100 companies use Twitter, the king of trending hashtags. Particularly useful for updates, trends and breaking news, it is a great platform to use to increase your global reach. Different businesses take different approaches, from regular sharing and linking to providing periodic original content.
Still the social media platform of choice in the business world, LinkedIn benefits from a more serious reputation. It is a great way to highlight your professional expertise and to connect with other people and businesses in your industry. It is particularly effective for B2B marketing.
Instagram is mainly image-based, which sets it apart from the other social media giants. It is best used to showcase photos, videos and other forms of visual content. As with Twitter, hashtags can be strategically used to target specific audiences and promote online visibility. Instagram is the perfect vehicle for businesses with large galleries of visual content to share.
Having a current presence on these sites, as well as any of the smaller platforms that may fit your business allows you to boost your overall traffic. However, in order to maximize your conversion rates, you need to do more than simply be there; you need to properly optimize your brand and effectively market your products, which is where EXTEND GROUP comes in.
