    Hello Geetika, there are dozens of social media in the internet world and some of them are best for specific industry. So, first you have to decide what your product/services niche and then you choose Social Media network to promote them all. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter and many are there but these are the best social media platform to promote business but also they can be used for specific business.

    I agree with Srialto. It depends on what you are selling. For many product social media is not even the right choice. What product are you selling and is it social kind of product?

    Hello Geetika, I also agree with Srialto. But these platform are most important and mandatory.
    Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter are very popular and everybody spend their time and work on.

    I see lots of people on twitter selling various kind of products so you should give it a try. But in order to be successful from your social media efforts you first have to build huge following. Once you have huge following on any of your social media account you should be start getting pretty good exposure for your posts.

    There's a lot of social media sites that you can choose from and we can narrow down your options based on what kind of industry or audience you are targeting. That being said, can you tell us more about your business?

    As others have pointed out, the social media site you use depends on the type of business. In addition to choosing the site, how you use it is just as important. If you use it wrong, you're not going to get the response you need. Also, are you taking advantage of as many opportunities as possible? Just knowing that you use a particular site is not enough. To really help, rather than just giving general information, we need to know how you are using the site - what are you doing on these sites?

    Sharing business posts in the groups of similar niche is how the social media posting for my business is going on. Is it not the proper method of sharing?

    And that's because followers have almost no value. If you want to promote your products on facebook pay for adverts.

    Or maybe it's just that nobody wants to buy from you.

    Your site doesn't instill confidence - the products don't even look real.

    FB Marketing is no longer possible without advertising.

    I am even executing few contests to attract morusers to my account which can boost the followers numbers on facebook. But i'm not receving response in bulk. Hardly the followers number is increased by 3 in past 4 months. So what better way i can use to boost followers numbers other than executing contests.

    Why do you want more people to visit your Facebook page? What do you hope to achieve?

    Brand boosting on social media is the main motto, if there are no followers itself then how the branding can be achieved. That is why I want to boost the followers number.

    That's not what you said in your opening post:
    Brand boosting =/= promoting products and services.

    It purely depends on the type of product you have and what audience you want to target. Like Facebook is good for B2C marketing and linked n for B2B. I never get any business from pinterest but other business are getting good result. It all depends on who your target audience is and what is your product. social media platforms which i am using are Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, linkedn, Pinterest and Tumblr.
