Youtube, Vimeo, Viddler, Vine, Metacafe,
Veoh, Dailymotion

Youtube is the most widely used video sharing platform and a must if you are doing any type of video marketing.  It is also good to consider many of the others to get your videos seen.


Ideas for Photo Sharing Sites of your favorite pics!


All though stated above as our favorites, Instagram and Pinterest are also great photo sharing sites. And the same goes for Flickr. Photobucket is also a place you can upload images. Writing quotes and text on images is also an idea to get your message and website out “there.”  Do check out my Free resources page to see tools you can utilize to do just that!

The Blogging Idea – Not Social Media but still great for Business Advertising!

What is great about blogging, is that your posts are out on the internet forever.  The key however, is to learn SEO – search engine optimization correctly and know how to get good low competitive keywords.  Your blog posts do not end up on Google’s Page 1 and in front of your audience out of pure luck. There are some back-end strategies involved.

You can check out the keyword tool I use (and get 30 searches free!) to successfully get my posts landing almost exactly where I want them!

Even though a blog is not necessarily a social media platform. It is a platform that truly stands on its own and can get unlimited content and advertising in front of your audience pretty much forever.

Blogging is hands down my favorite!  You can check out a Review on the platform I am part of, where you can share your passion and make money blogging!

The lists above could probably go on and on.  However, the sites I have shared with you, are generally the most widely used for blog posts, video marketing or business rlated ads.  One thing is for certain.  You will never have a lack of platforms to share your content on whether it’s business or pleasure that is for sure!

I do hope you enjoyed this brief summary of some of the best social media advertising platforms.

  1. Hi Sharon. All this while, I’ve only been focusing on Seo and search engine as my main traffic source. I think it’s time for me to venture into these social media. I mean, those over 1 billion Facebook users seems a great pool of traffic right lol!

    But is there are special way to market our content on Facebook? I really don’t want to spam my friends with my posts… Do you have any specific fb marketing strategy?

    • Hi Isaac,

      Yes you go where the people are active. I post in groups, and generally post helpful blogs to assist others so if they come back to your site, then they get to see other stuff

      Hope that helps,
      Cheers, Sharon

  2. Hi there,
    This is a great way to advertise websites. So far I currently advertise through Facebook and google, but now I need to focus on twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I currently do not have accounts for those last 3 so that is the first thing I need to do. Thank you for helping me out with this post.

    • Hi Yancey

      Yes you must get on Social media platforms. Everyone is on them these days. Glad I could help
