For multinational corporations and entrepreneurs aspiring to expand their business activity across international boundaries, social media is a very practical tool since it provides much of a practical reach where potential clients and customers can be reached anywhere in the whole world in real time by simply updating useful information and data on the social media sources.

Social media platforms provide a great opportunity to bring in a targeted in flow of audience to interact with the business profile and posts through simple interactive processes and keeping in touch with the latest that the business has to offer in terms of both goods and services. The maintenance of regular conversation to the social media page or pages of the business is often encouraged by posts of the humorous kind. This is especially effective because people have busy schedules and often get caught up in the mundane rut of everyday tasks and chores that need to be carried out. Simple humor is thus very attractive to the average person who may be taking a quick break from work, or be on the go. This has them simultaneously engaging in business most of the time without even consciously realizing it.

Different social media platforms offer different designs thus providing a wide variety of possible marketing tactics to meet the business objectives. For instance, Twitter is the most popular social media platform for the use of hashtags which actively link content and make it very simple to manage trends in terms of popularity and also classify posts in very simple fashion thus making them even more attractive to any potential clients.

Instagram is yet another platform which provides categorizing posts, mainly photos through the use of hashtags and very simple and free advertisement and online catalogues of products through simple user profiles which can be publicly accessed. What helps even more are the communication platforms which also fall under the umbrella of social media such as WhatsApp, Viber, Line and Skype etc which provide free calling and messaging service along with the sending and receiving of photos, videos and sound clips which make the whole process so much easier, especially in terms of ordering products from businesses that are overseas.
