Social media platforms are collection of websites that enable individuals, businesses and other orgainsations the ability to interact with one another and build relationships as well as communities online. For businesses, once they create their accounts and set it up, it is ones of the important social channels they interact with consumers directly.  This is different than your traditional marketing where direct interaction between consumers and businesses are limited.

One of the advantages of social media marketing is the internet’s ability to reach and build relationships with billions of consumers across the globe. This advantage includes the opportunity for businesses to rapidly influence and change buying patterns and products or service acquisitions. Other added benefits are that these platforms allow customers to share or repost about your promotions and thus grow your brand awareness and reach of customers through the traffic it generates for your business.

In terms of social media channel types, there are plenty of channels to choose from. All of these channels have both similarities and difference. The main ones are Facebook which is said to have 2.7 billion users worldwide, followed by Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, Tumbler, Tik-Tok and many more. All of these platforms give businesses the ability to use interactive digital channels that allow a user interface that allows the creation and sharing of information, ideas, interests, and other forms of expression through virtual communities and networks.

Since the last decade and more, there has been a tremendous increase in social media growth. One of the most significant changes is the shift from brands simply broadcasting marketing messages on social platforms to an environment where engaging with fans and fostering communities around a product or an idea has become imperative to success.

The focus is now building relationships between business and its customers as well developing brand awareness, positioning and building communities. It is not simply enough to target traffic and build massive followers for your business as a symbol of ‘authority or success’.
