If you need some guidance on how to more effectively connect with your target marketing then look no further than this very handy infographic covering 9 of the major social media networks.

Some things to keep in mind for each of the major social networks:

  • Facebook: Posts with images with images get the highest amount of engagement.
  • Twitter: Use questions, facts and figures to engage viewers and drive retweets.
  • Google+: Tag brands and people, when applicable, they’ll g a notification and potentially engage with that post.
  • Pinterest: Images with no human faces get shared 23% more often than those with human faces.
  • Instagram: Putting the subject of the photo in only two thirds of the screen makes it more attractive to the eye.
  • YouTube: Use hashtags to ensure your video gets in front of more people.
  • Vine: Use a tripod to keep videos steady as a shaky camera can be annoying.
  • Tumblr: Know your post types and make sure you choose the right type for your content.
  • Blogging: Keep blog posts between 500-800 words so that it is not too long that you lose readers.
