Marketing your product is so important that it is better to have a good marketing strategy than to have a good product. Don’t get it twisted. I’m not downplaying the importance of a good product but what importance is your marvelous product if you don’t have a way to get it across to people.

Have you ever wondered why big companies spend a huge sum of money on advertising their products even when people already know about it? It is quite simple. The market is ever-widening and every time you advertise a product, you are doing one very important thing; you are marketing it.

When a company or business entity stops advertising, it gradually starts dying.

The business you are involved in is not important here. Your kind of product is inconsequential. People have to know what you have or you are not making a dime. You have to market your products to them.

You can be importing your products or you can produce within. It doesn’t matter how you get your products. The most important thing is how people get your products. That is the very reason for knowing how to market your products and services.

    instagram

With 500 million users on the app and 59% of those users checking the app every single day, it’s no doubt that Instagram has great reach.

Instagram may best be used as a brand-building tool if you have a decent following and post beautiful images or videos, but if you plan to use it as a marketing tool, you will need to devise a strategic plan to capitalize on the half a billion users.

Due to the nature of the platform, many of its capabilities – in terms of ad formats – are limited in comparison to those offered on its parent company’s platform. However, many of Instagram’s advertising options show strong resemblances to that of Facebook, and it will be interesting to see what the company has planned for the future.

Until then, it’s important to take note of the advertising approaches offered on Instagram and decide whether or not they should be considered as a formidable option as a social media marketing platform. Some of the ads include; Photo Ads, Video Ads, and Carousel Ads

  1. Pinterest

    pinterest

Pinterest is known for having an incredibly active and targeted user base. It’s become a network whose users value the sharing of ideas on various products, such as clothing, decor, and much more.

Pinterest’s value comes from its ability to derive data from micro engagements through the use of Pins – similar to the way Facebook’s Likes perform – that can help to target users more effectively. This plethora of detailed information makes Pinterest an ideal social media marketing platform for businesses.

While the value in the data is there, Pinterest’s advertising models are still developing and are not quite on par with other platforms. That being said, the company has recently made dramatic improvements and the potential it has for advertisers is nothing short of promising.

Compared to another social media marketing platform, the list of ad types available on Pinterest is a fairly short one. Due to the structure of the platform, a large variety of ads isn’t necessarily needed either. The number of ads on this social media advertising platform is a relatively short one compared to the likes of Facebook and Twitter. They have Promoted Pins, Cinematic Pins, and Buyable Pins.

  1. YouTube

    youtube

Aside from being the second largest search engine, YouTube is owned by Google. So when it comes to search engine optimization, videos are more likely to appear in search results than other websites.

With nearly one billion active monthly users, YouTube has become a household name when it comes to video-sharing. As its popularity steadily rises and more and more content is created every day, it’s only natural that the Google-owned network continues to become a more feasible option as a social media marketing platform.

If you’re doing any advertising online, then there’s a good chance you’ve done a little bit with Google. In order to advertise on YouTube, you’ll need to run through your AdWords account and connect the two services.

From there, you’ll have the ability to structure all of your typical standard ad settings – such as specifying locations, device targeting, age, gender, interests, keywords, and so on. While many of the settings are the same, YouTube’s ad formats are much different than that of the ever-popular Search and Product Listing Ads (PLAs).

With the choice of both in-stream and in-display options on mobile and desktop platforms, YouTube offers several different ad formats that can be of value to your advertising objectives

The adds one can run on this social media advertising platform include Display Ads, Overlay Ads, In-Stream Skippable Video Ads, Non-Skippable Video Ads, and Midroll Ads.
