    Which would be easier way to get followers and traffic for my online store? I mean I have facebook page but it's painfully slow and I don't have a lot money to start with. Any advices are appreciated.

    instagram is coming with a shop function, which can be implemented in your posts. I guess that might be the best option. Instagram is easy to grow aswell. I dont have experience with pinterest.

    Depends what you are selling.

    If your selling clothing, then Pinterest might be the best option.

    But if your selling guys related stuff, maybe IG or Facebook is the best option.

    What is your niche? if we know it maybe we can get you better advice. :)

    I'm selling handmade jewelry and facebook seems to be very slow. Tried some paid ads, but they just seem to eat money without any luck :)

    I agree with Instagram, right now it's probably the hottest platform and first thing you have to be looking where the audience and market it. Go ahead and start engaging with people on Instagram, create attractive content and create some call to action and people will go to your website and buy your stuff.

    I hate the thing about instagram that it only allows picture upload via app and I'm used to windows pc. I know there are tools for windows, but I prefer to go safe way because this is long time business I'm building.

    Get on every social media outlet you can, the more people you reach - the more potential customers!

    I'd also suggest trying out Tumblr.
