    Yes social media marketing is best for the B2B and B2C business just Its have social special platform for example Of you talk B2B business then "Linkedin"is best for marketing because its audience is totally correlate with the business owners.
    But instead of this If you talk about B2C then you don't have to need any business owner and entrepreneur but you need targeted audience which buy your products that's why you can you "facebook"Instagram"twitter" such social media platforms are used....

    It is good for both but it depends on what the business is and who the customers are. I think it would be hard to say it is better for one over the other because of the factors that go into it.

    B2C, in my opinion.

    Much easier to connect with a large number of people who make purchasing decisions.

    It depends upon your customer and your business needs if your business needs social media marketing so you can do it. But according to me, social media marketing is best for business advertisement point of you because nowadays lots of people using social media and they search for everything on social media before they buy product or services and it will also help you to get the trust of your clients about your product and services

    I would certainly say they are the best for both business type but it depends on your approach and techniques on doing that to them, because for customers you need to have different approach and the same thing goes to business to business. Social media is a gold mine for online entrepreneur so take every opportunity there.

    If you're asking in general, SMM is good for both. If you have a specific product or service you want question, it may be worth asking that specific question to the forum as I'm sure you'll then get better feedback to your situation.

    Both have their own strengths in respective areas. It would also depend on what you are planning to do, and who are your planning to target. Currently, I would prefer social media, Instagram especially.

    Social media marketing is effective for both B2B as well as B2C businesses. Again it depends how you brand your self on social platforms. Social media contributes in improving your digital PR, brand image & brand recongnition. It also contributes in genereting leads a well. Most of B2C business are only using social media for their operations. Yet again for B2B it is a neccessaity. A company has to change it self according to the new trends in market. Social media is the new medium used for advertising these days. It has taken a large chunk of portion of advertising from conventional print and other electronic media.

    Social Media Marketing completely depends upon the niche you are working in, whether it be B2C or B2B. If you are working with a B2C, then you can put up strategies and ideas for marketing your product to the target market. Similarly, if your product is a world-wide product, let's say you are working with a Cloud-based product then it becomes much easier for you to penetrate in the market. You just need to know where your audience is sitting and from where you can get them right. In case of B2B, you have lesser chances from Social Media because of the delicate/specific target market. You are more keen on getting businesses on-board with your service. In my opinion, do correct me if I am mistaken, SMM is much better for B2C than B2B.

  • social media mk helps both b2b and b2c companies. it just depends on your expectations. b2b companies use social media for employer branding not so much for actual sales while b2c companies depend on social media for sales as well as branding.
