Define : The most crucial step before evaluating the right social platform is to define your business and also your target audience, which will require an in depth research of your customers to know their buying behavior, attributes, likes, dislikes and so on. This will aid you in creating personas for your business.

Analyze : Now that you know about your target audience, analyze on which platform are they present, and also on which platform are they actively interacting with other businesses.
