Choosing the Right Channels

Once you understand your business goals and target audiences, choosing the right social media channel mix to support your strategy is critical. It is far better to manage ONE channel well rather than spread your resources too thin across many channels.

When choosing your channel:

  • Be sure it is a match for your audience and business goals
  • Be sure you have the resources (e.g. Instagram calls for high-quality visuals; Facebook may need a budget to boost your posts to your followers)
  • Start small and build on your successes
  • Review audience demographics
