Digital marketing provides companies with many options such as social media, e-mail marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing and mobile marketing. Which tool to use and which strategy to follow are still unclear for many companies. Many businesses have consensus on the fact that social media is quite effective in terms of marketing. However, there are still uncertainties about social media.
For instance, different platforms engaged in social media marketing are important for companies to access customers through different channels. However, it is another matter of concern to understand which platforms are more effective for accessing your target audience and optimizing content you share on those social media platforms.

23 percent of companies using social media are active and present on 3 channels,
