Adding social media channels

I primarily use fb for social media and am thinking about adding Pi nter est and Ins tag ram. I don't use these personally so I'm not up on the ins and outs.

Anyone using these for business? Any advise on starting out? Is it like fb where I make a personal account first then add a business "page"? Any best practices or pitfalls?

Thanks in advance!

My daughter told me that only old people use the word hip. I notice that now. Sorry Dum. cool

I am pleased to say I actually made a sale from Pinterest, specifically Pinterest in May. I never thought it would be possible!

I get it, as in, "I stood all day and now my hip is killing me!"

I know, that's why I like to use the word, people rarely see it nowadays Smiling

From what I read in recent surveys and research, Pinterest's strongest market would be clothing shops, they get the most out of it.

For other businesses the benefits are close to zero, with very low conversion rates. 
Some potential traffic - yes, but with a high bounce rate and low visit times, so rather low quality traffic.

Instagram... if a good deal of your clients are young and "hip", then you might consider it. But if your audience is mostly 35+, it will probably be a waste of time (though doesn't take much time).

FB is getting worse and worse with each passing day...

I can only imagine you taking instragram and running with it Jacks. I would like to follow you on it, you will have a huge following in a wink of an eye! 

Instragram allows you to choose where you want it posted, it twitter/fb which accounts etc. But when you are new it will be a learning curve. You will get ten times the bang for your time buck on instagram. 

Pinterest is around 85% female at last count, so appeal to the ladies on that platform. You can have a business account on Pinterest.

Have fun!

Thanks JB! I don't care much for learning curves as I head into the busy season, but gotta keep learning. The RTO here will be moving into these realms so if I want to leverage what they're doing, I gotta get on board.
