    I am curious as to which social media website most of you use the most for marketing?

    I personally use Twitter the most for my marketing efforts although I do use some of the other top social media websites for my marketing due to it's ease of use and that is is more geared towards marketing from my experience.

    This question is for marketing and not just your social media activities in general.

    Cheers, Dean.

    I have always gotten the best results from Twitter so I use that one the most. After that it would be Facebook but it's a distant second in comparison to Twitter.

    I have never really done much with Linkedin, can you get a lot of traffic, sales or conversions with it?

    Cheers, Dean.

    I get most out of traffic from Facebook and Twitter. However Majority is from Facebook. Facebook provides me good networking and also good conversions as well.

    I have always used both of those myself and was usually getting more traffic from Twitter this year but the last 2 months I have gotten more from Facebook.

    I really haven't done anything different lately so I don't know why it has switched but the traffic numbers are better so I can't complain. :)

    Do you get much traffic from LinkedIn? That one has never done much for my needs but it might be because I am not really targeting any businesses or companies.

    I use Facebook the most myself. I have just seemed to get much better results from the time I spend on there and all my activities produce better results.

    I have thought about getting more into some other social media websites but I haven't had enough time lately to get them going.

    I use Facebook the most for my marketing but I have been thinking about expanding into new social media websites to see if any of them are better. I haven't really looked at some of them but I am wanting to try to get more traffic and sales so I am trying to decide which others to try first.

    I use Facebook and Twitter mostly myself but I have also considered getting something going on some of the other social media platforms. I just need the time to be able to do it.

    I have been thinking about expanding myself but I am always short of time so hopefully I will get some extra time to try others out.

    Do you have any particular ones that you are wanting to expand into?

    I am not real sure but I have been thinking about Pinterest, Instagram and maybe Snapchat. Do you use any of those?

    I've been wanting to check out Pinterest and Instagram but haven't had the time to look better at the possibilities. Never really looked at Snapchat at all.

    I want to try some of the others myself also but I just know so little about any others that I don't know which I should try and what to do on them. Most are completely confusing to me.

    Well try to find out which ones would be better for your needs. If you are using them for marketing purposes then find the one or ones that are better suited to the niche and target audience you are trying to attract and reach and go from there.

    Do some research and try to learn about the ones you decide on and see what kind of helpful information you can find out about them.

    If you have questions that you can't find an answer to then post a thread here and maybe some of the other members can help you out.

    I use Facebook in marketing my products because it is free and Facebook has a wider audience than any other social media. If you want to have more viewers, you can try their Facebook ads but it has a fee. You can also use Instagram and Twitter but make sure to promote those social media sites to your Facebook page so that your Facebook viewers will know that you have other accounts. And use Instagram to post beautiful shots of your product then share it in Facebook.

    I need to just do some reading about them I think. Then I can decide which one to start with first.

    That's what I have been doing recently. I am trying to narrow it down to 1 or 2 new sites to try out.

    I use every social media account i have from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and You tube. How you approach your audience and your contents you publish is very important. I saw a lot of famous personalities in You tube forgets to thank his/her audience for their support.

    I always use facebook. Why? Because it is one of the most popular social media. It covers a large number of people around the world. So if you use it in marketing, you have a big chance on gaining a large market.

    I have been using Facebook the most for my marketing work. I really have not done much on the other social media websites but I am planning to do more on them soon.
