In comparison, Facebook is better for marketing as compared to LinkedIn because the followers interact with Facebook posts more often than LinkedIn posts. You can use Facebook marketing to reach a large number of audience.

LinkedIn is a network for professionals, who whats to connect to the professionals. The people who use LinkedIn are older and educated as compared to Facebook and from the business point of view, the professional connections are also important.

In my opinion, both of these platforms are very strong social media platforms and you should use both of them to increase the traffic for your website.

I always prefer Facebook over LinkedIn, simply because Facebook have vast more customers than LinkedIn including professional and normal users. If its about Running an Ads, I still go for Facebook.

That's your opinion, but if you're selling a B2B product and want to network with business professionals, then LinkedIn is your likely solution actually. LinkedIn is the defacto search engine for businesses and business people. Facebook has more volume, but it is better-suited for consumer-based items. People are more likely to expect business related outcomes on LinkedIn as that's what it is there for, whereas Facebook's purpose is synonymous with socializing.

My opinion for the promotion of your business is that you should use Twitter and Facebook. I'm using all social media sites for marketing purposes, but the response over Twitter and Facebook is quite amazing.

Facebook is no doubt the No.1 choice for promotion of my business. Facebook have tremendous opportunity to drive traffic and also target your audience. However LinkedIn has also some great opportunity. I personally getting visitors from LinkedIn as well.

I always enjoy an alternative opinion, but what would be super is if you defined "easier." How do you feel it is easier to do marketing on Facebook and why is easier an advantage?

I think the idea behind using LinkedIn suits professional B2B services in a far more cohesive way than Facebook or Twitter can. In essence, you need to account for the types of content published on each platform. Facebook is fantastic from the perspective of reach, especially as promoted posts are impressions based, but my opinion would have me say that the types of content on Facebook, and the types of content that people look for on Facebook is fairly informal in tone. Perhaps not quite so much as Twitter, but I still think that business decision makers may not explore Facebook looking for solutions.
The very nature of LinkedIn allows you to discuss, in detail, relevant content with others in business. It also allows you to talk shop and network with others, so even if posts may not generate business leads, you can further your professional knowledge and increase your business scope.
I wouldn't even say that using Facebook is 'easier', just that it is the primary solution nowadays for increasing the volume of reach.

In my opinion, Facebook is better than LinkedIn as I'm getting more success with Facebook than LinkedIn.

However, it depends on the type of your business. It doesn't mean all niches work better on Facebook than LinkedIn.

When it comes to promoting websites, it is essential for an organization to select proper social media platform. Facebook and Linked In are both effective platform but each of them has its own performance.
To promote the business and to create a social awareness, definitely facebook is effective. Facebook involves in better customer target and ebgagement.
Whereas Linked In, it is much more professional and it deals with only for professionals rather than targeting mass audiences.
Hence, based on business purpose, nature, objectives and desired outcome, we need to choose a proper platform.

Hey Peter Griffin :)
Long time fan of your show.

For you (in your situation) I would definitely recommend Facebook. It sounds like your trying to connect with people and Facebook is the place to do that. LinkedIn is definitely more business oriented and focuses more on networking which can be great to connect with influencers and trade guest post, etc.

I'd stay with Facebook for now, I love Facebook for marketing.

I wish you the best of luck and hope for you a successful future :)
Take care!

Both of them definitely have their perks. I think FB is better in terms of marketing and connecting with people. But for business purposes, I think it would be wise to try to build as much relationships on Linkedin (since your influencers would be mostly on there) and use that as an intricate part of promoting your business.

I'm not a big fan of Facebook for B2B sales, but you do still need to be there. Never leave anything on the table for your competition. LinkedIn words great if you use their Sales Navigator.

Facebook and linkedln are important in marketing. They help to get traffic to the sites and make sales. I think facebook is better than linkedln in business because people made lots of money and the boss of facebook is very rich. You get free and paid traffic from facebook. It helps to access our target audiences easily.

Facebook is better than Linkedln if you want to improve your business. However, it depends on your product because of Facebook strict policy. Your account can die whenever, and if your account is private account, you can add or invest more money if you run ads. In this case, you can hire agency account. Personally, I did hire agency account to run ads already and I think It's good

If is B2B, I will recommend to go for LinkedIn since is mainly working professionals and if your products/services are meant for B2C then I will suggest going for Facebook. IT is important to know where your targeted audience are e.g. are they in the Health sector, type of designations, age groups etc... Once you have all the data of your targeted customer, then you will know which SMM channel is better for your business.

I've found Facebook to always be better than Linked In for the fact that Facebook gets super laser targeted with who you can target audience wise. That and plus it's Facebook! I hope that helps ;)

It actually depends on the website that you promote. If it is more related to professional work, I think LinkedIn is better, such as tips for being marketing, etc. But if it is more casual such as traveling websites, I think facebook is better.
