How Many Social Media Platforms Should I Be On?

This is a common question that is on everybody’s mind. We all know we should be on social media, but how much? How often?

Are you supposed to be everywhere? There aren’t enough hours in the day for that!

Here is some insight into how many social media platforms your business should be active on.

If You Are Just Starting Out With Your Business

If you are just starting out, then you probably don’t have a team to help you with your social media.

You don’t want to stretch yourself too thin with everything you have to do to keep your business afloat, so you need to pick one social media platform to put your focus on for now.

You want to find the intersection of what you like to use, what kind of content works best with your business, and where your customers are.

Once you have found that happy place in the middle, you can put all of your focus there until you reach a point where you can expand your social media presence.

If You Have More Experience

If your business has grown and you have taken on some team members, than you might have more time to expand your horizons online.

Part of your business growing involves building a reputation. The more content you put out into the world, and the more platforms you are available on, the more people will see you as a thought leader in your chosen niche.

Becoming a leader, becoming somebody people look to for information and guidance, is a really cool place to be as a business owner. But you won’t get there if you aren’t reaching people in as many ways as possible!

Showing Up On Every Platform

The problem with showing up on every platform is that it takes a LOT of time and energy. You might have avoided building a social media team because you don’t want to have to create all of the systems needed for the team to work effectively.

That is where my team and I at Power Creative Media can help you out. We can become your team. We can take your video or audio files and turn them into hundreds of pieces of content, spread out over all of your social media accounts. We can post for you, write captions for you, edit videos and create graphics for you.

Showing up as your best self online doesn’t have to take up all of your time. If you are interested in learning more about what Power Creative Media can do for you, book a call with me at
