What is Social Media Marketing?

Using social media to advertise a brand, products, or services. Social media marketing allows a brand to insert itself into ongoing conversations on channels such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Best practices for social media marketing include creating interesting content that links back to your website and publicly replying to questions and comments.


A clothing brand launches a social media marketing campaign on Instagram to promote its new sustainable fashion line. The brand posts visually appealing content showcasing eco-friendly products and engages with its audience through comments, messages, and targeted ads. This campaign helps increase brand awareness and drive sales among environmentally conscious consumers.
