They are many social media platforms in the world today, but we are just going to discuss four of them.
Till date, many people are unaware of what a treasure this platform is, it is like a garage sale with no garage. Pinterest is an online platform to get inspiration for various craft, and you can also sell and buy stuff too. So, if you own a business or you have some things to sell, set up a Pinterest board and pin good pictures of your items. People from all over the world are bound to see what you’ve got and would pay to get your items shipped to them.
This popular social media platform has turned many into millionaires; all you need to do is know how it works for business owners like yourself. Twitter is one of the most widely used social media platforms in the world. You have a chance of getting noticed by celebrities and VIPs all across the globe. Just ensure you have a decent number of people following you and participating on your thread.
Marketing on Facebook has become so easy and lucrative. You can create a Facebook album that consists of the items you want to sell, and post it on your timeline for your friends to see. If you feel your friends on Facebook are not enough to make a decent sale, consider using Facebook marketing tools to get your wares spread abroad. Facebook is widely known, and it is used by both young and old, posting pictures of what you are selling is a great way to advertise your business online.
Another money-making machine right here, Instagram is fun! It is a platform that uses only pictures, and it is a favorite of many people all over the world. Posting photos or videos of your products and services are sure to get some interested buyers. All you need to do is ensure you have a decent and active following, create exciting and valuable content, never give up.

Social media is majorly for building relationships with friends, celebrities and brands. Don’t be all about your business, form useful relationships with people that would in future buy your products or refer someone who will. Create content that answers burning questions or solves people’s problems. It’s an excellent way to engage your followers. Once your followership is increasing and continuously active, selling things to them will be a piece of cake.
