Facebook is one of the longest running and most popular social networks. It was first introduced in 2004 as an exclusive social network for Harvard students and grads, and has since expanded into a platform that reaches consumers of all ages around the world. For brands and advertisers looking to engage with consumers and advertise to their target audiences, Facebook is often the first social platform they turn to.
Given the variety of screens and devices every consumer uses on a daily basis, marketers trying to capture the attention of consumers and connect with them face an uphill battle. When building out a marketing plan to reach your target market, there are very few instances where it makes sense to limit your marketing activities to only one channel to accomplish that goal. Rather than putting all your eggs into one basket, multichannel marketing is a better way to share your message with the right people at the right time.
