FB, Insta, and Twitter are great for reaching the widest audiences possible. Most people now a days are on at least one of these social giants.

The engagement on LinkedIn is typically a little lower than on other social media platforms, but we also see these engagements typically being of higher quality.

This is a great way to truly start reaching a wide audience. Typically on average a single like on LinkedIn could lead to hundreds of impressions.
