Social Media Basics

 

With all new businesses, social media is now a key component to getting you noticed. There are so many different platforms, it can be hard to decide which ones to use.

Depending on the type of business you are trying to advertise, you’ll need to pick the  social media that will suit your business. Linking your social media platforms so that you can publish on more than one without having to spend all day on a computer helps.

The three easiest to combine is Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.  As these are probably the most popular, this is where I start.  It is a little messy, because Twitter can’t post to Instagram, but can post to Facebook.  Also if you’re using your account in Facebook to run your business as a page, Twitter isn’t easy to manipulate where it will post to.  So for me the Instagram account is the key.

From Instagram it is easy to set up using your phone where you wish to link.  Using settings choose the Linked Accounts menu item. When you choose Facebook, make sure you share it to your business page.  With the other platforms you will have had to make another account, so it’s easy enough to handle.

When in Twitter and Instagram you can have your personal and business profiles logged in at the same time, then you can choose who you’re posting as.
