It can be really tempting to feel that as a business you should have a presence on every available social media channel. After all, more channels mean more exposure, right? Not necessarily!
Rather than spreading yourself too thin and creating content for channels that aren’t relevant to your offering or customer, take some time to think where directing your social media strategy would be most successful.
Identify your audience, and then use that information to create social media accounts on the most relevant channels. For example, if your offering is mostly B2B, a LinkedIn account is a must, whereas if you’re selling directly to a younger audience think about newer platforms such as TikTok, if your products mean you need to target parents, Facebook is a must for you!
Start your social media journey by choosing the most relevant channels for you and make your content innovative and engaging, you can always expand to other channels in the future if your core offering evolves, or you see a gap in your strategy.
