Facebook

It currently has over 14 million users and this number is constantly increasing.

Facebook is a huge dose of knowledge about the behavior, interests of people from your target group that you should use as a brand.

Linkedin

It's a place where the word “business” fits better than the others. There are directors, specialists, marketers, and company owners. You will find people with similar professional profiles and skills. You can easily find contact with them and start cooperation while being in a different country.

Twitter

Twitter is mainly a close relationship with the other user. It is a medium dominated by politicians and journalists. There are few brands in Poland that use Twitter, and this is a huge mistake, but a great opportunity for you.

Instagram - how to promote yourself?

If you want Instagram to bring good results, you need to ensure regularity and the frequency of publication.

If you start your adventure with Instagram, start by publishing content e.g. every 1-2 days. Check how many people your posts reach and how many users of the application respond to them.

Talk and get involved by:

  • asking questions in posts or Insta Stories
  • asking for help in choosing
  • requests for recommendations

Respond to comments and mentions

If you want to run your business on Instagram, use good practice - reply to comments and mentions about you.

Hashtags

While they’re not essential on Facebook, Instagram has gone crazy about them. Hashtags are available here mainly for photo tagging.

Remember that social media activity is also getting followers. Over time, positive and negative comments may appear. But don't be put off - critics are everywhere. Draw conclusions in time to avoid negative reviews.
