The Top 5 Social Media Sites Your Business MUST Have!

With so many up and coming social media sites it is hard to keep track of which will be the most effective

Although there are so many social media sites, it is important to remember which ones are actually relevant to your business. One huge mistake that businesses make, are that they spend a lot of time working on social media sites that they believe to be popular, but aren’t effective for the growth of their business. Here are the 5 best social media sites for your business…


1) Facebook

Facebook is the biggest social media site around, with more than two billion people using it every month. Almost a third of the world’s population are active users on Facebook. Think of all the potential customers!

The site allows businesses to share their most important information easily, and puts it clearly on show for all page visitors to see. The ease of finding this kind of data at a click of a button is good for businesses because it means that any potential customer doesn’t have to hunt around for things such as opening hours, contact information, location etc…

Facebook allows you to connect with both existing and potential clients with its use of advertising and messenger. These tools allow businesses to offer new promotions, create brand awareness and communicate with their customers.

2) YouTube

From a business perspective, it’s hard to deny the effectiveness of video marketing. Businesses of all sizes can adopt a video marketing strategy, whatever their product or service is. According to YouTube’s research, there are over a billion users, and they watch a billion hours of video per day. That’s a lot of traffic opportunities.

Fortunately, you can use your YouTube content in many ways that can spark shares. For example, embed your video content within relevant blog posts or share a link to a relevant video in a LinkedIn group discussion.


3) Instagram

Instagram has proven to be a powerful marketing tool for businesses looking to expand their presence and the visibility of their products. According to the folks at Instagram, their social media presence currently brings with it over 800 million active users. Of those millions of people, over 500 million are on the platform on a daily basis.

With all of those users to choose from, the sky is the limit to what a business can achieve. That goes for large, well-known companies as well as smaller pop shops and one-man operations.

4) Tumblr

The free micro-blogging platform Tumblr can be a powerful tool for spreading awareness about your brand. Tumblr also offers many free and premium blog designs, and is one of the most mobile-friendly publishing platforms. If you use both Tumblr and Facebook for your business, you can integrate Tumblr posts into your Facebook timeline.

Tumblr says it hosts nearly 65 million blogs, garnering nearly 17 billion page views per month.

5) Twitter

Businesses around the world are using Twitter to reach out to a bigger target audience. Time after time, Twitter has proven to be an excellent tool, especially in the sales and marketing world.

Simply take a minute and craft your 140 character pitch and with the click of a button, it can reach all of your followers who are online. Marketing cost is zero. It’s such a great tool to update customers, share information and promote offers.

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed and don’t think that you can spare the time or effort to keep all of these platforms updated… That’s where we come in!
