    Facebook will help you to promote your business,. As a eCommerce store facebook has a lots of traffic and you will get conversion from it.

    Facebook is the best place for advertising of any type of business because of their strong algorithm they show your ad to relevant audience

    No it's not. If you sell fencing wire to farmers I doubt they will be looking on FB for suppliers.

    Or what if you sell specialist medical supplies to hospitals?

    Adverts on Facebook and other SM platforms can be very lucrative. But that doesn't mean it will work for everybody.

    Yes you really need to understand your target customer and their behaviours. Then market on the channels that your customers use. You also have to consider the context of each channel. For example, when customers are on Facebook they are not actively looking to buy, so you need to focus on their awareness stage. This usually means creating interesting content that isn't overly "selly" to create the first touch point for customers with your product.

    You are wrong. They may be suitable for some businesses but that doesn't make them right for everyone

    I think in the current era, all social media are important for the business. It depends on how you use them. Different businesses can use differently so you should check the best social media for your business niche and use them.

    LinkedIn is a good way to connect with your target clientele and and get leads. When you connect with someone you can see their email address. Simply export into your mailing list. Do this regularly and you can build a business from it. A lot of people haven't figured this out, strangely enough.

    Best,

    Andrew

    According to me, Linkedin is a better platform for business promotion because there are all professional people available no one can use Linkedin for entertainment.

    Hi all, I am Ajith and i am glad to answer your question, As per google, among one 1 in three, know about a product via digital platforms like social media, blogs and forums.So Social Media Management & Marketing is essential these days, Moreover, there is a norm in today's society that is, for B2B business they are using Linkedin to connect with professionals , for example selling an ERP services etc, same in contradictory B2C, fashion products, apparels people now mostly use instagram and facebook as it will reach the consumers too quick. So depending on your product and business, choose the platform.

    The selection of the social media is always depends on the type of the business. But, the social media channels like facebook, twitter, pinterest, and instagram can be used for all the businesses whether it is related to the education, technology, or healthcare industry.

    @Sarbjit Grewal - I disagree. There are very few businesses types that do well from SMM. For example, technology only works for consumer products. If you sell web hosting or build apps less so.

    The aim of social media is to generate traffic, So choose the platform where you can find the right audience according to your niche. For instance, for something professional LinkedIn is a perfect platform, for youth-related products Facebook is better, and Fashion related products are best promoted on Instagram. So, choose the best according to your niche.

    Business exposure or brand awareness is one of the primary objectives of the business. The advent of digital technology has made it possible to approach the largest and targeted audience through the growing wave of social media.

    Social media has expanded to become so much more than just its initial concept. With such incredible growth, every business today needs to make the best possible use of proper social media channels.

    Social media is an integral part of your business marketing strategy and your business should take advantage of it if you want to survive in the digital age.

    I do very well without SM. In fact my business is growing without SM.

    It's not essential. For example, I buy things from eBay without using SM.

    You do very well without SM.. that's not the question, and that's not important.
    We need to see the ground facts.

    Here is a summary of social media statistics for 2020 which clearly shows the importance of social media in business.

    • There are 3.5 billion social media users worldwide.
    • Facebook is the most popular social media network.
    • Users spend an average of 3 hours per day on social networks.
    • 73% of digital marketers believe that social media marketing is “somewhat effective” or “very effective” for their business.
    • 54% of social browsers use social media as a tool to research products.
    • 71% of consumers having a positive experience with a brand on social media are likely to recommend the brand to their friends and family.
    • 49% of consumers entirely depend on influencer recommendations on social media.
    • Over 2 million businesses today use Facebook advertising to promote their products and services.
    You buy from ebay, but what about the million people that bring traffic to their shops through social media marketing??
