    I am working on a website related to Medical Marijuana and would like to get any tips or suggestions for growing various social media accounts.

    I am thinking about focusing on Facebook page and Instagram, but I am pretty sure that paid ads are not allowed on FB/IG for this industry.

    What should I post/do and avoid on these FB page and IG?

    Which other platforms/marketing channels would you recommend for Medical Marijuana industry?

    Thank you!

    You are selling online or just informational site? If you are selling create new fb account and test group posting with lottary - free weed givaway on random subscriber lol. There have tons of fb pages Medical Marijuana - some of them with over 1M likes, so possibly fb alow it. There have tons of fb groups with over 10K members where you can join and post.

    Thanks for your reply.

    No, I won't be selling any products on my site, it's more of a classified site where dispensaries can create listing and post their offer or deal.

    So my target audience is B2B, but I will need to have followers and traffic to bring businesses on board.

    It's a new site, so don't have any existing clients. I am still working on the site and just created social media accounts today.

    Thank you.

    I won't be selling or offering Marijuana or any products.

    It's a B2B model, but I will need to have followers and traffic to bring businesses/dispensaries on board.

    I am aware of IG automation - I have used Instagress in the past for an eComm store.

    Accounts (FB page and IG) are pretty new at the moment, so looking for ideas and suggestions for what to post and do, and what to avoid.

    Same stage here. Looking at my fresh FB & IG accounts, and wondering if I'm going to bot or play manual... especially after FB latest photo security check.
