Platforms for Social Media Promotion


Facebook is one of the best platforms for promoting content online. With more than 5 billion users, it is one of the most used social media platforms among the many others.

If you promote your content here then people will get curious and may end up watching and sharing your content online.

Reddit is a platform which is tricky for secure promotion. The purpose of Reddit is to gather various published and read resources and ideas from the users. There are many subreddits where you can post your promotion text, but many of them are not allowing other content to be enabled in their subreddits. If you get the best subreddit, then you can get high traffic in less time. If you cannot choose the proper subreddit, then the moderator of the subreddit may remove your postings from Reddit.


Pinterest is a simple and unique place for promotion of content online. It is mostly for promoting photography and literature. You just have to get one photo from your content and post it as a pin in the board. All your friends can share it in other social media, and there will be mass traffic on your article. It is highly trending among the image and digital content lovers.


Tumblr is one of the most straightforward and most accessible traffic generating platforms, but, only if your time permits, because, you may have to sit and write almost a summary of your content which is not available in any other social media. It is a free platform for blogging with the set parameters. If you can do this, you will get a lot of views. Again if you share this on other platforms, then you will get views very much in a little time. Here it is easy to publish your promotional texts as this looks like a blog and blogs are easy to promote content. Many digital content managers use it as a skeleton blog.


Twitter is the most popular social media platform for announcements and preview contents.
