Other than traditional platforms of advertising, entrepreneurs are increasingly adopting social media options such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, and other internet-enabled tools to promote their business.
In this week’s entrepreneur series, we asked how effective this has been as well as their choice platform…
FEMI KUMOLU, FK Clothings
Yes, we do because of the wide reach. Presently, we are on Twitter and Facebook. We use more of Facebook because it is easy to post pictures on the platform.
On Twitter we have about 60 followers and on Facebook we have over 200 who like our page.
I have my customers already because I have been into business for many years. Social media is an added advantage and you can find me on Instagram (Banke Adewunmi). I am quite strong on it, and it has been very effective in promoting my business.
I use social media to advance my business. A lot of people have quick and cheap access to information on social media network. It has been very effective and it’s making positive impact in the business. I am very strong on Facebook and Instagram.
