You need to get your strategy right if you are to cash in.
Thinking of starting out with Facebook, Instagram, or Linkedin advertising?
The best thing about Social Media Platforms is their micro-targeting capabilities. For example, it’s not just the data Facebook offers you for targeting, but the data available to Facebook algorithms and how it can use that data once it has had a little time to understand your goals and your target market. Getting this benefit is all about setting up your account right to help it along. Each has a uniquely different audience too. E.g. Linkedin is the place to find senior executives during work hours. Instagram is growing fast as a business platform.
