If you are new to business, or are just getting started using social media to grow your list of leads, this chart may be of interest to you. Some business owners feel they have to start out using every social networking platform out there. I think that is a mistake. My advice would be to start with one or two that actually apply to your business.
Once you are comfortable using those, then you should consider expanding to other networks. The chart includes email and blogging as social networking platforms.
How do you know which ones fit your business? There are tips on this chart that may help you make that decision.
If you are a travel agent or have retail products to sell, I would recommend using Facebook and Pinterest which isn’t represented on this chart. Pinterest is currently the third most popular social networking site because they feature photos and don’t we all love to look at pictures. Your photos and therefore your business name and contact information will have a lot of views.
If you want to connect with peers and professional people, then LinkedIn should be the first on your list. You create a profile then invite a lot of people from your address book to connect with. Once you connect with someone, you become part of their network and so your contacts have grown exponentially.
I am on Twitter however, I can take it or leave it. I don’t like all the time it takes to shorten what I want to say. To me, Twitter is time consuming and I don’t enjoy it anymore.
I prefer Facebook as my priority social media tool. It offers many possibilities and you can have a lot of pages, groups and connect with a tremendous amount of people and share photos, graphics and videos, inspirational quotes, original content and so much more.
Take a look at this chart and see what might apply to your business and tell us what social media networks do you use and why.
