Marketers all over the world are always searching for ways that they can use to showcase their products and services to large audience so as to promote their businesses and also increase sales. The traditional ways by which business use to do this was Newspaper, TV, Radio, Magazines etc. which are great ways to make your business known to the public but there is a better way that you can use to leverage your products online and it is no other than social media.
Social media is a place where millions if not billions of people converge for so many reasons which includes creating and sharing of contents, videos, ideas, networking with people etc. and marketers can tap into this traffic source to grow their business.
Unlike the traditional ways of growing your business as I mentioned earlier, social media is a far cheaper way to grow your business and produces a high “Return On Investment” for marketers on a daily bases. 90% of the world’s populations have a social media account and they keep signing up for more as long as it interest them, so you are rest assured that no matter the social media site you decide to invest your time on you are guaranteed of reaching large number of potential customers.
Social media has gone from just a place where people get to meet new friends but people are now using it to purchase an item which is why top ecommerce websites use social media to advertise their products. One of the ways top brands and businesses use to engage with their followers is through social media.
With all this said, not all social media platforms might be good for your business so you have got to figure out the ones where you are likely to meet people interested in your business so you can market to them.
In this article, we will be listing out the best social media sites you can use to market your products as well as grow your business.
I call Facebook a country of its own, it is estimated that Facebook has over 2.1 billion monthly actives users which makes it one of the best social media sites marketers and businesses can use to reach their targeted audience.

The Facebook advertisement is great as it allows your target your audience by location, age, gender, desires and lots more. With this feature only the right people will get to see your products. Another way of getting traffic from Facebook is by posting on groups.
Well we had to put Instagram at number 2 as it is owned by Facebook and huge traffic can be gotten from this site. Instagram is basically a photo and video sharing platform and has over 1 billion monthly active users. This platform deals mostly with graphic contents so if you are going to use Instagram to grow your business you should consider creating images and short videos of your products and business. This platform also gives you the opportunity to interact with your customers directly so your customers can message you if they have any question to ask you.
Pinterest in another great social media platform you can use to grow your business but I must say it depends on the business you are into that will determine how successful you would be using this platform.
