Best Social Media Platforms for Creatives

The average salary for social media manager’s today is $49,395. That’s enough to tell us that social media marketing is not just a Facebook thing or a passing fad. Social media is the new marketing. And… it’s not even that new, here in 2018. But soon. Soon all the mega corporations will be pouring their billions of advertising dollars into Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest, instead of ABC, NBC and Fox.

The times they are a-changing. In fact, it could be said that this is the era of change.

If you want to grow your work in the world, you need to build a following and the very best way to do that is through the social media channels. But which social channels are best for you?

Community is the new currency.

Which Social Platform is Best?

But which social platform is best for you? Obviously, you can’t do them all and stay sane, at least not at first when you’re just getting started and you are the creator, tech, social, bookkeeper, and everything in between in your business.

So how do you decide which social media platform is best for you? Is it Facebook because it’s the largest? Maybe, but there are PLENTY of people who could be interested in your work on every platform. So how to decide where to start?

The best social platform is the one you’re most comfortable with.
~ LeAura Alderson,

Consider, where do you spend your time socializing online? What social groups do you belong to and where are they? That’s most likely your best place to start building your own brand, because you’re comfortable there. If that’s the place you hang out, chances are your future fans are there too.

So good news! You most likely don’t need to learn a new platform yet. Start with what you know and enjoy.
