Social Media Marketing definition.

Social Media Marketing is a set of activities aimed at promoting a company, a product, or a service on social platforms (such as Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, etc.). Usually, a brand positioning strategy is built by focusing on the channels in which target audience or who may be interested in that brand is more available. The scheduling of content, the study of effective formats and texts, the tactics of post advertising, together with other control factors, help to build plans that are highly goal-oriented – such as, for example, increasing the fanbase or direct selling a product.

It is often the mix of those which leads the most effective strategy, based on the reference market and especially the audience.
