In the past, we've talked about why you should be thinking about social media marketing for your business. But what happens when the bigger networks stop working for you?
That's the question that's been on our minds lately, and it's one that we think will become increasingly relevant as algorithms and monopolies continue to dominate the market. As a result, we've been looking at smaller social media platforms that could become useful for your business.
Pinterest Business is growing in popularity as a marketing platform, with data showing that it can generate twice the return on ad spend for retail brands compared to other social media channels.
