We are already in the middle of the year; if you have still not thought about your social media plan of attack, it’s time to buckle up. Want to know the best social media platform to give a boost to your business? If so, you have landed at the right place!

Social media platforms have become an important part of marketing campaigns for every business. In the digital age, brands that are not online, especially on popular social media networks, lose a large chunk of the audience. However, with so many platforms out there, how do you know which one is the right fit for you? For instance, if your target audience consists of women, Instagram should be your top choice. Alternatively, if you are a B2B brand, prefer to use LinkedIn as it’s more professional. Before we talk about the factors that influence your decision and popular social media platforms, let’s have a look at the following statistics.

Popular Social Media Channels for Businesses


Facebook

Surprised to find the platform on the list? Why it’s not new and cool? Despite the fact that it’s old, it is the largest social media platform for users, which businesses can capitalize on. With over 2 billion monthly users, it’s a definite must-have in your social media strategy, and if you think teenagers are not using Facebook, it’s time to think again. Half of the users on Facebook are teenagers, and the other half belongs to the age of 46 above.
Best Features for Business

Target those who are willing to purchase your products
The opportunity of social media e-commerce integration
Ability to connect with a broad audience group

Instagram

72 % of teenagers use the photo-sharing app, and 67 % of adults under 30 use Instagram. The platform is extremely popular amongst youngsters. But the challenge for marketers is to attract an audience whose attention span is less. To be successful, you have to create engaging content. Photos and short video content do exceptionally well on Instagram. You can integrate it with your Facebook and Twitter account to use the same photos across multiple platforms.

Best Features for Business

Has bigger following in urban areas
Tell a brand story with unique and engaging visual content
Instagram heavily focuses on visuals, both images, and videos
Instagram stories allow you to share behind-the-scenes footage of your business

Pinterest

With 450 Million active users, it’s the best place to share visual content. You can share anything from a scarf to an infographic; you can find any type of content on any niche and topic. You can use graphic design to spruce up some statistics or other interesting, evergreen content to boost your brand awareness. If your company makes a product or service for women, use Pinterest as it has a maximum female user base.

Best Features for Business

It has a significant reach amongst women and perfect for brands targeting women.
Ideal for brands in the fashion, home décor, art, food, or fitness industries
Easier to sell products directly from the Pinterest page
With a click of a button, you can add favorite items to the shopping bag

YouTube

With 2 million + active uses, the platform is perfect for brands with a target audience between 18-65. With the second largest search engine in the world and a large user base, it’s a perfect catch for brands. Comedy and music content do well on YouTube, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use the social media platform for your business. Product reviews, instructional videos, and similar kinds of content do well on YouTube. You can also promote your video on other social media platforms. If you want to educate your customers, nothing can beat YouTube.

Best Features for Business

Get access to an unlimited amount of video hosting
Affordable to publish video content that drives more engagement and increase conversions
Easily integrate videos into your website
It helps in search engine optimization

Linkedin

If your target audience consists of professionals, no social network can beat LinkedIn. It is the biggest community of workers and business owners who share and connect on a professional level. If you are looking for business clients, you will have more success on the social media network than directly approaching consumers. Decision-makers and influencers are all over LinkedIn; if you are able to get your brand and message to them, you will go another scale.

Best Features for Business

Higher networking opportunities
Massive digital advertising opportunities
Allows you to deliver ad content to those with job roles that are involved in making purchasing decisions
