Summer Series: The Other Social Platforms by Dante

Level: Beginner

You probably have a Facebook page and an Instagram profile. You might even have a LinkedIn profile. A few may have played around a little on TikTok.

But what about the other major and emerging social platforms?

With over 436 million users, Twitter is a powerhouse of content, news and sharing of information.
Pinterest is even larger with over 446 million users pinning, viewing and sharing their favourite things.

Both Mastodon and Hive have just surpassed 1 million users each in the wake of all the drama at Twitter.

Even Reddit has 430 million active users; Quora has 300 million.

Yet, so many businesses have either ignored them or never heard of them.

In this 1-hour session for small businesses who have only really explored Facebook and Instagram in any depth, you will learn:
1. The size and audience types on each of these secondary platforms
2. The business opportunity on each of them
3. How to approach participating on each platform
4. The pros and cons of each platform

This workshop is brought to you by Business Station and AusIndustry under the Digital Solutions Program.
