Although Instagram is not built typically for Business. but It still is a great way to promote your business and Business events or offers. and developing to become more Business friendly. many people still think of Instagram as a photos sharing platform but it is much more than that.

It is good for other businesses too… as you can share your events or offers details here. for Influencers Marketing Instagram is one of the best application
- No need to be frequent: As for other platforms you need to put continuous effort but for YouTube there no compulsion for being frequent. But as always consistency is the key. Be consistent with your videos.
- Embed videos to websites: You can also use Youtube as storage space. The videos stored in Youtube can be embedded in your own Website.
- Earn Money: You can earn a decent amount of money by monetizing your Channel. But unlike before there are some requirements before you can monetize your channel. But that’s not the most effective way of Youtube earning though.
Linkedin is kind of a Social Media Platform for Professionals and Industry experts. and It is the best social media platform for B2B (Business to Business) companies. although, it is of great use to B2C companies too.

Reports say, 87% of Pinterest users have purchased some products due to Pinterest. Therefore, we can say that Pinterest is one of the best platforms for E-commerce business. you can share pictures of products, you want to sell, with a short description, and also guiding them to the next action step which could actually lead them to buy your product.
Using Call-To-Pin just like using Call-To-Action can lead to eventually more sales as people can be indecisive while browsing through all those pins. So a Call-To-Pin can eventually lead them to come to a decision. A CTP can be to asking the user to Pin this image to their own boards.
Twitter is a very powerful tool for people good with their words. It can make you heard even by those unapproachable by other means. It’s not very unusual when you see actors replying to their fans. There the number of words that you can add are limited and that’s what makes it powerful, as the words are limited you have to make what you say worthwhile. If writing isn’t your thing then Twitter isn’t the best digital media platform for you.
It is one of the best SMM platforms for personal marketing and influencing. But be careful it is quite often for people to get trolled. So be wise with your words.
