    [b]1. YouTube[/b]
    Gone are the days when people spend all of their time glued to the traditional TV. Nowadays, most people find it better engaging and interesting to access YouTube from the comfort of their desktops or mobile devices. If you don’t believe this, check the statistics that is associated with this info and you’d be surprised with the figures too. This then makes the TV less of a better way to push your brand and makes YouTube advertising a juicier option for you.

    [b]2. Twitter[/b]
    Twitter is another in the list of social media platforms that you can use to grow your brand. The thing with twitter is that the tweets are limited to just 140 characters, but don’t see this as a limitation, but rather, a challenge to get the best out of these characters. You can find a hot a trending news item and jump on it. You could even create a hashtag and promote it until it goes viral. Let your hashtag be engaging and something that people would want to jump on, and you are on your way to twitter stardom.

    This is the mother of all social media networks, and there is no telling what you can achieve with Facebook alone. The website has been optimized over the years for those that own and would like to advertise their business, with no discrimination to the scale of the business. Facebook has a special and dedicated ads section, allows you to create an account for your business and likewise, gives you the chance to build a free page for your brand. There is support for videos and pictures upload, as well as mass tagging. With all of these provided to you for free, the question should be why you are not on Facebook already.

    [b]4. LinkedIn[/b]
    You have always wanted to network with other businessmen, meet people with like minds as yourself and rub minds together but it seems that the opportunity just never comes. If you are still interested in meeting your goal, then LinkedIn is the place for you to be. The platform has been known over years as a place for professionals to meet up with themselves, share opportunities and al serves as a marketing tool to a lot of people. There are various groups in there and all you would need to do to get yourself started is to enter a group that goes with your niche.
