Social media has become an essential part of every marketing strategy, but not only this. People love to interact with the help of social platforms like Twitter or Facebook, and this creates great opportunity for business-minded entrepreneurs and companies. Obviously, it is no easy task to undergo a full-fledged social campaign, for the simple fact that it is hard to monitor.
In order to get the most out of your experience you will have to invest a lot of time into at least the three most important networks (Google+, Twitter and Facebook), as this will ensure better outreach. But have you ever thought of alternative platforms from which you can harness a significant amount of traffic? Not only traffic, but also brand recognition can be more easily gained with the help of such platforms. Here are the three most promising social platforms of the future.
Instagram may not be new, but it is definitely worth mentioning, especially because it is mainly a phone app, and also because of its latest video feature addition. In case you didn’t know, developers came up with a solution for posting videos that can also receive one of the many awesome effects (Lo-Fi, Brannan, Amarello etc.), to make it look more personalized. This can be a great tool for businesses as they will enable the workers to reveal a behind-the-scenes view of the company, or a short showcase of their products. There are many ways to take advantage of Instagram, and considering that the community is constantly growing, you should definitely consider investing time in it. According to the latest post on Guest Post Shop Blog, social media is one of the determining factor when it comes to building an online presence.
Another social network that I have definitely enjoyed is StumbleUpon. This superb tool was designed with simplicity in mind. Itâs main goal is to reveal to you awesome pages from the internet, and the concept is simple. The more stumbles you get, the more likely is it for your page to be discovered. If you are a content developer, or a hand-made crafter, for example, you will want this extra outreach that will bring you significant amounts of traffic.
3. Twitter’s Vine
Vine has recently been purchased by Twitter, who stated that they are looking for the next best thing. This might just be it. Since it was purchased, Vine has managed to revolutionize the concept of video marketing, and to build a community of artsy people dedicated to creating great videos. Much like Instagramâs Video, Vineâs videos are small previous of just about anything (it is all up to you). Recently the app was released for Android, and the network has also received the ability to like, comment and revine. This will definitely help the community expand and grow, and although it is still a small market, it has limitless potential, and it has only begun to gather momentum.
All in all, there are many fascinating platforms being creating on a regular basis, and they can help you attract even more traffic that you might otherwise loose. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to get started with these mediums, and the rewards are totally worth it.
