So, what you need to do is you need to do some testing. let’s concentrate on Linkedin, let’s try Twitter, let’s try Facebook. There is a lot of experimentation happening with Snapchat, it is catering engagement and brand awareness.
You really need to go out and do some testing to try and find out where your audience is.
It is not about I can do this and just keep doing this. Figure out what isn’t working.
Take a call on users taking 70/20/10 rule.
