Twitter is known as the “second name” in social media. But it can also be beneficial to a catering business. This platform may not produce big ROI numbers, but it may help you come up with marketing ideas for your business. Twitter is also very effective in keeping the brand name in front of the competition as well as spreading news about your business.



LinkedIn may not often be considered as a social media site but a lot of companies use this platform for their marketing strategies. What’s good about LinkedIn is that it's a completely different vibe than the other social media sites. Most people continuously utilize it for business purposes only. However, if you choose this platform, you may have to use a different strategy than when you post on Twitter or Facebook.



This can be one of the most beneficial platforms for a catering business. Pinterest is mostly used by women, and it's a hit when used for planning dream weddings, home remodels and new recipes. But there's more in store for the users. This platform can be a great way to show off what you can do. Pinterest is also considered as one of the first successful photo-based search platforms where anyone can share photos of anything with anybody, regardless of being “friends” or followers”. This can be an effective platform on which to “soft-sell” and build up your reputation as a business.



YouTube is the first name that almost all Internet users think about for anything video-related. It's also a place where most "YouTube-ers" and artists upload their video content. YouTube  is an excellent way to host your own video content so that you can reach more unique users.
