    I have a love/hate relationship with social media, especially in today’s world, as soon as I get the hang of things, they change it! What do you think are the 2 most important social media platforms to use? And if you only use 1 platform, can you still be successful? Thanks for the article!

      Hi Sara,

      Thanks for reading my blog. In my opinion, i think the 2 most important social media platforms are Facebook and LinkedIn. I use many social media platforms and they all serve different purpose depending on the kind of people you want to do business with. I mean, at the end of the day you want to engage on those platforms to be able to drive traffic to your website. So, it’s a good idea to join groups that are similar to what you’re doing on different platforms and by doing so you get them to see your site.

      I hope this is helpful. If you have any other question please feel free to get in touch.

      Thank you.

    Hi Bolaji,

    Thanks for the steps on how to use social media to grow a business. Using social media for my business has been a challenge for me since I am not an active social media user. However, your post has made it seem very easy so I plan to give it a try again. Should a person join all social media or are there some that are best for business?

      Hi Femi,

      Thanks for reading my blog. I can definitely relate with your experience with social media. The truth is, you don’t have to register with all the social media platforms but you can carefully select some and this is how you do it. All you need in this business is traffic and the only way and effective way to get free traffic is through social media groups. 

      So, when you register with Facebook for instance, go join some groups that do what you do – like online marketers for instance if that is your niche. The same method applies to all other platforms, go join key groups that are related to your niche – there are loads of them out there and they are free membership. 

      I hope this is helpful, please let me know if you have any other question.

      All the best.
