Selecting the Correct Platforms
This section explores the important and difficult question of which social media channels work best for your particular business in terms of resource allociation and effectiveness. It is not enough for a business to simply ‘get on Facebook’; it is important to develop and implement a social media strategy.
Evaluation of social media platforms includes considering whether your target audience is other businesses (B2B) or consumers (B2C), or a combination of both. Do you have a particular service area? Do you need to market locally or nationally or a combination of both? What degree of repeat business is typical in your industry?
