There are literally hundreds of social media sites you can use to grow your business, but the question you need to ask yourself is… “Do I need to join all of them?” The honest answer to that question is NO.
There are a number of social media sites you need to consider but you should really consider using the Big 4. The four largest social media sites would be YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. These are the ones everyone uses and you should as well.
Videos are a good way to share what you offer to your market. Once you create those videos you need a place to upload them to so others can see and YouTube is the best platform to use. YouTube gives you the ability to have subscribers to your channel and you’ll have the ability to have others make comments on your videos.
LinkedIn is a resume’ type site and it’s a great way to find new customers or for customers to find you.
