Hi everyone. This is my first time doing marketing for B2C, I used to do B2B before. My team and I just launched our product, an online investment platform for individual customers. We are about to start doubling down on marketing, and social media is one of the channels that I would take on as the very first step. However, I’m not very sure if it is suitable for a product like an investment platform. If yes, what’s the best way to go about marketing it on social media?
(Disclaimer: I am not a marketer. I am not offering financial or business advice.)
I would think your primary concern would be the targeting of your social media marketing. Splashing your platform on teenagers’ twitter feeds isn’t going to be very productive, but targeted campaigns on facebook may yield better results.
I’m not sure what your definition of ‘trustworthy’ is. Social media doesn’t usually have a ‘trustworthy’ factor to it.
Hey friend, If you think “trustworthy” on any platform in marketing, that may not leed you to go beyond it. Think positively don’t be in a confused mood always. Do research on which platform do you want to do marketing where it may be social media or Google Ads or something else whats in your mind.
