Hi there! I own a digital marketing company, would be happy to chat more about this if anyone wants to. It depends on your industry and where your audience is. Very few businesses see a ROI on Twitter. Focus your efforts on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. Social media is a visual tool, and these three platforms allow you to showcase your brand visually, and the posts last longer in the socialsphere then they do with Twitter. When on Facebook, GO LIVE!

In marketing, it's truly "Go Big or Go Home." Putting out a few tweets may reach your drinking buddies but social marketing is part of a total effort.

Building your brand takes time & effort - not luck.
