    Hey there I'm just trying to freshen up my social media marketing skills so I'll post what I already know and ask some questions:

    Reddit:
    audience - generally people that want to improve their life, smarter than avg internet users (except meme sections)
    traffic methods - ranking reddit page on Google relatively easy.... Also reddit ads just rolled out they are pretty cheap. $0.75 CPM for my previous adventures. Upvote skype circles work wonders too I heard (no experience with that though)

    Instagram:
    people: any niche has tons of people, I'd say this is the social network people are most addicted to from experience.
    cons: people tend not to click on bio links on mobile since it opens a new tab in a browser instead of having a built in browser. Bans are super easy to get as well as phone verifications. You have to be careful with your settings and proxies and account providers. Don't put in links in bio too early cause that is a ban too.
    growth methods: follow Liker is one of the best software for this. Alternatives include instagress, mass planner and more. The point is to follow people and like their stuff, then you can unfollow them and they'll still follow you. Until you can start getting organic growth that is the way to go.

    Twitter:
    people: all backgrounds, lots of "comedy" but at the same time lots of journalists use it so I would personally say its good for most niches.
    I don't have much experience with twitter marketing myself but I am aware that it is similar to instagram.. Like comment and follow people with bots (follow Liker)

    Facebook:
    people: literally everyone
    I personally have no experience botting this social network as I know it is extremely difficult to manage multiple accounts and they ask you to send documents etc..
    traffic sources: group posting, growing a page organically, buying small amount of advertising for a viral video or photo to get it off the ground, then letting it go up by itself. I heard from others that Facebook ads may be profitable if you target the right people in your niche. It is nice because they have laser targeting.

    To-add list as I try them out:
    Tumblr - good for backlink and long contextual web 2.0 posts
    Pinterest - 0 experience

    Questions:
    On Instagram, how long should a new account wait until posting a link in bio? Custom domain or shortened?

    On Tumblr, what is the best strategy to grow followers? What is the optimum number of people to follow per day?

    On Pinterest, how many is too many people to follow per day? What should be a linkpost:nonlinkpost ratio?

    On Instagram, what's a good number of followers to have before buying a shoutout?

    On Pinterest, how much traffic (approx) is it normal to get per linked pin (assuming its clickbait) with a page of 1000 active followers?

    * this post will be formatted and edited with time, was written from my phone. New info will be added as I gain knowledge. I am just trying to have a lot of different traffic sources so I'm dipping into every social network at once.

    You can add domain on your instagram when you started your account.
    You can get tumblr bots for increasing followers automatically.
