When social media begin, it definitely didn’t have the impact it does today. Now, brands almost NEED to have a social media presence, for familiarity, for promotion and for trustability. Most users look for companies on social media before moving forward with them, and the world of social media opens up business opportunities that once did not even exist. Today, we’re going to see how to set up Instagram business accounts, other social media platforms and how much businesses of every size should be using them.

Bootstrapped Startups and Very Small Businesses

Very small businesses, while they don’t have a huge marketing budget, should definitely work on their social media presence to get their business out there. Even if you can’t afford purchasing ads, social media posting is free and can be an easy way to share your company with the world. We suggest Facebook and Instagram, which are easy to promote without paying a dime.

Established Small Businesses and Well-Funded Startups

More options are available for small businesses with more capital and revenue growth. These businesses often look to marketing agencies for help, which can work on your social media presence for you. For this size company, we recommend creating tutorial videos, webinars, and promotion through Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and even TikTok.

Medium-Sized Businesses

If a medium-sized business has over 500 works, they probably already have an established brand and some success. Usually, these businesses have full marketing and advertising teams that take care of social media production. This means that these businesses have a lot of freedom in the way they post on social media and their marketing efforts.

What Social Media Platforms are Out There That Have Services for Businesses?

No matter the size of your company, there are some big platforms you might want to check out. Here are some of the best options out there?
