Know social networks
Each platform has different characteristics and serves a specific element. While Twitter offers immediacy, Facebook offers notoriety and the possibility of sharing audio-visual files easily, etc.

It is not a simple task, but the correct planning of the generation of content, together with the correct use of each of the social networks and their nature, will be keys to achieve it.

This element should be key when understanding the performance of brands in social networks and should be central when developing a strategy for creating content.
To generate engagement and interaction the relevant content adapted to each of the social networks and perfectly timed will be key. Likewise, the use of drawings, promotions and advertising in social networks will be one more element to generate this engagement.
Learn from mistakes
