Different social media platforms are used by different types of users, and types of users can be categorised upon age groups, demographics, geographics and can go much deeper. For example, research states that old people tend to stay away from snapchat due to complicated features and they prefer to use Facebook which is more friendly and rich of content. Considering this example, if your business were to target the grey market, you would want to be marketing on Facebook to reach your desired audience.

What type of information do you want to share?

You might be wondering that any type of information can be sent from any of there platforms stated above. But in spite of, having an idea on which type of information you will be sharing will help in more precisely choosing the right social media platform. If your strategy would be to create awareness of your brand to more potential customers digitally and would want to share automated information upon customers request, the best platform would be Facebook messenger and Whatsapp which have the integrated automated response. If your business would want to share tutorial of your products on how to use it, the best main platform might be Youtube to share the videos.

Time and frequency to publish

After the careful strategy planning, it's time for execution and start publishing on your chosen social media platforms. It's important to set perfect time and frequency to publish your posts, as you would want to publish your post at the time most of your audience are active, and this will depend on their geographical locations. Finding when your post receives maximum views and engagement might be time consuming, as you will need to do multiple test by posting at different hours at different days and analyze the data from insights. After analyzing the data, you will be able to conclude the time when your post receives the peak amount of views and engagement on a pattern basis, and set the time accordingly.

Social media scheduling tools will help in scheduling posts at any time and frequency you want to make it easy to posts at odd hours that for example for audience that is opposite to your time zone, that is when you should be sleeping, your audience is on social medias. However, social media scheduling tools leads to a disadvatage. Social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram algorithm reduces the number of views for post that have been scheduled from a third party.
