If your target audience is found mostly on Pinterest or Facebook, then choose any one of these platforms. Know the ebb and flow of each platform and learn how to make a successful digital presence on these platforms. If you’re targeting first-time buyers, then Instagram or Snapchat might be the right move. If you’re targeting a professional industry, then Pinterest will work for you.

Considering this every platform has its target audience and its pros. So, find out one for you and start marketing your business on the platform.
