Effectiveness Comparison Of Top Social Media Networks [Infographic]

It can be hard for a brand or a person to know what social networking service to put their effort into. Social media can of course be a great tool to utilize when you are trying to bring extra traffic to your blog, website or service. But choosing the right networking service for your needs is a little bit tricky. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration. Usually a head to head effectiveness comparison is necessary in order to find the best option for you.

This can be hard to do if you don’t know what you are looking for. Dividing expectations into traffic, interaction, exposure and optimization can sometimes be the only straightforward way to undertake an effectiveness comparison between social networking services. Of course this could be done by simply postings posts, links and even photos to various social networking services and then compiling the results into the different categories we have already mentioned, but this can be tiresome and of course time consuming. Instead, we can consult research that has already completed the effectiveness comparison and you can get your options in ranking order.

The resulting compilation comes from E-Power Marketing and comes in the form of an effectiveness comparison infographic called Social Media Stage. It puts the top 14 social networking services head to head in each of the different categories we are looking for advice within. This effectiveness comparison will instantly let you derive which one of these top 14 social media networking services will be the best choice for you. When you know what you are after, just find the one network that is best suited for your needs and get to work. Stop wasting time trying to put these networking services into this type of comparison yourself. This infographic already has all the answers for you.

It is based on a 5 grade rating system where 5 is excellent and 1 is poor. This system could be applied to all the other social networking services available. However, at that point you are left on your own. These are the ones that will most definitely bring you what you are after. But don’t forget that posting a link, a picture or a simple update every now and then doesn’t really inspire people to continuously interact or click through to your website. You have to, in a way, earn it. You do so by using social networking the way it’s supposed to be used – by clicking, interacting, sharing and giving exposure to others. That is the way you will win the social media game.
