So LinkedIn is almost strictly professional, Facebook presents a mix of posts of a commercial nature and more familiar content where it is okay to post jokes, sayings and slightly more particular topics, which is not well seen on LinkedIn.
And Twitter, well your direct audience may not be there yet, but instead on Twitter there are all the referents and leaders of your industry or business sector.

Use these performance indicators (KPIs) to see if your posts are popularizing your brand.
Scope and Impressions: An impression is a view of your post or the number of times shown to a single person. Reach measures how many people saw the post: the same post can be shown multiple times in a single person's feed.
Mentions: Keep track of how many times your business was mentioned on the networks.
Follower Growth: It shows you the number of followers on your networks and how many you have gained over a period of time. If you notice that one of your posts or promotions attracts a lot of followers, you should create more of that type.

These objectives can be from clicking on one of your posts, filling out a contact form or subscribing to the blog.

5. Create a community
A community creates a network of loyal brand followers and potential returning customers.
Conduct surveys, answer questions, interact with or share photos and videos of your customers using your products; are just a few ways to build a strong fan base.
Make your customers talk to you through social networks, invite them to write to you in case they have questions about your product. This can benefit your entire community, as you can turn a common reply into a post and/or content for your page.
Invite your customers to share their experiencesThis way you will make them feel part of a small family and it will be more likely that if they want to buy again, they will do it with you.
6. Moderate the community
It is not about removing opinions that do not suit us or exercising censorship. It is a matter of mutual respect. If a person is aggressive, insults or behaves in a way that is unacceptable to the rest of the community, you have the right to delete their comment or block the person.
Nothing is more unpleasant than finding a lot of aggressive or out of place comments. For me it's like walking into a store and finding heaps of rubbish, I feel like they don't respect me as a customer and therefore they won't have my business.
7. Don't try to beat the big brands
It is advisable to review how other small businesses and competitors connect with their audience through social networks. Notice how they align their goals and tailor their strategy to their business.
Leave the big brands at their own game.
In short, starting on social media as a small business can also have its advantages, you decide how you want your customers to recognize your brand.
The important thing is that you understand that you too can put social networks to work in the development of your business.
