If you claim to be engaging in social media marketing yet you are not employing the power of influencer marketing, then what exactly are you doing? Influencer marketing involves building a relationship with an influencer (which could be a celebrity for instance) and asking them to get across some information about your brand to their followers. You can also ask them to conduct campaigns for you and analyze influencer campaigns following this. Many businesses are now taking advantage of this tactic and it keeps working like magic.
“Why LinkedIn over other social media platforms?” You ask. While many businesses tend to focus on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, they tend to leave out LinkedIn. This is not exactly as great as the sole purpose of LinkedIn is to connect people on a professional basis. A business/business owner looking to gain grounds should definitely have a profile on LinkedIn where they can boast of their achievements; making people want to associate with their brand.

Hence, there should be a different plan for relaying a brand’s message on each platform.
Draw up different plans relating to the different forms of the audience on each platform, but keep the message the same.
