    I've been thinking about this the past couple of days, i got a total of 3,6+ million followers on IG, they are all in the adult/fitness niche.

    Would it be a good plan to drive them to another social media? Twitter? Facebook? I think that if i would get a few 100K on twitter i could start making money there aswell and same with facebook.
    Now to the ultimate question, which social media should i choose? I can only pick 1 that i can focus on.

    thanks.

    Personally Id go for Twitter first, would say its the easier of the two to gain a decent following on but to also promote/monetize.
    Facebook are becoming incredibly strict and not to mention they have that restriction on post reach (or whatever it is called)

    With 3.6M I'm sure you make some decent cash which ever direction you choose to go

    I thought about the reach thing on Facebook and yes, it really freaking sucks.
    The bad thing with Twitter would be that i wont be able to sent out tons of tweets per day.

    Maybe not a first but as the account ages you will be able to post more and more. Have seen accounts putting out tweets every 20 minutes or so.

    Wow that's a lot of followers!

    I would say Twitter as maybe it's more similar to Instagram ? So you might get more take up..?

    Good choice on thinking of future diversification. Sooner or later you would crumble if you kept all your eggs in the Instagram basket. Twitter really seems like the best option for you. Tons of mobile users use Twitter.

    Go with Twitter because Facebook reach is 1%

    How is Twitter when it comes to CPA networks?
    Do they accept links that leads towards a survey? Or is that a no no?

    The only problem with twitter is gaining followers, i chose instagram over twitter because its steadier. The problem with twitter is that you have to post every hour to not lose followers, and i promise you i've seen the biggest twitter accounts only gain 1k in a week or so. Just because people are unfollowing faster on twitter than on instagram. It's just a fact..
    Would still go twitter instead of facebook, cuz facebook marketing sucks.

    Neither. I would get their email address, and do a drip campaign for whatever you're trying to promote.

    Setup a mobile landing page, and see how you can scale this approach. Within the email, you can always get them to join your Twitter/Facebook.

    Another good point to make you can upload these email addresses in Facebook or Twitter and target them with Ads.
