And I think that social media proves that point very well, you can see that people attempt to be on more social media platforms then they can could possibly post to, they get so spread out that they do a poor job on all of them. By not deciding to dominate a social media platform, they are simply nibbling from all the possibilities and are thus, starving at a buffet.
But it doesn’t have to be that way, instead of nibbling from a lot of things, we should just find out what we like, and what works for us then pig out (metaphorically.) And then as we get bigger, we can eat more and more of the social media buffet.
So how do you know what types of social media are best for you?
You’ll notice a common theme in all these questions is that they are audience centered. When choosing a social media platform, you want to go where your audience is not try to drag them to where you are. Think deeply about that, it will save you tons of time. It would be a terrible thing to have 10,000 followers on a platform where 0 of your customers are.
One last thing I want to mention about choosing a platform before I share with you ten options. Choose the ones that you can be passionate about, especially if you are the person who is going to be on it every day. It takes time, blood, sweat and tears to build your platform, so do something that you love.
Alright, that being said, here are some ideas.
Hopefully this article has given you a spoon, fork and plate so that you can take advantage of the huge social media buffet out there. Go out and look at the different social media platforms and see what works and we’ll talk again tomorrow!
