What do you do? This is the result of why. The proof.
2. Choose the networks that best support your brand.
Facebook is considered great on all terms and in its own category because it allows for the most diverse traffic. Instagram and Pinterest are both options for brands that rely heavily on images. Linkedin and google+ are stronger choices for promoting business-related content and connecting with other business influencers such as an enginerring firm or real estate investment company. Snapchat and Twitter are both great for a vusiness such as a dance studio, yoga class, or media production company.
