    I am working on growing my brand. This is extremely long term goals. No churn and burn. Instagram has been my best social channel so far. A simple bot has helped me grow to over 20k. I get good business from it. I want to expand my horizans. My first thought for facebook is that not everyone sees your posts because of there algorithem. So I'm thinking my time would be better spent on twitter?

    Any input would help. I have only about 1k followers on twitter. Should I just get a bot and do the same thing. Have people found the conversion rate of twitter to be as good as instagram.

    My niche is fishing/outdoors/ocean. Think Salt Life. Visuals has seemed to work well which is why instagram has worked well for me.

    So your opinion is using paid ads? I was thinking on more of an organic level

    You should give FB ads a try. There are many guides out there and some even go through how to promote local business'.

    Why choose one? why not use both?
    Use Facebook with highly targeted ads. if you market well Facebook can still do wonders for you. Use twitter as well.
    Post images, and engage your users.

    Agreed. However if you are looking to go the bot route like you did with instagram I'd recommend twitter

    I tried some facebook ads that I got with free credits. It seems expensive per click/follower
    I targeted based on user and followers of compeititors. What do you mean by "highly targeted"

    Also do people still see a lot of website traffic from twitter?

    You should try Twitter. Great way to drive traffic if set up right.

    I guess im not sure because I truly feel that instagram is the best for my particular niche and no other social media channel will be as good for driving traffic to my website and sales. But I want to pick one to dedicate my time to. Im guessing twitter is my best option because I canset up the bot and grow it the fastest. Post some links to drive traffic.
