"Getting everyone talking" is one of the main advertising goals. It leads to brand awareness, engagement, traffic, and, ultimately, sales. On the other hand, no brand aims to offend a huge group of people, some of which may be in their target audience, and that is exactly what controversies do. On the third hand (imagine you're an octopus), it's pretty hard coming up with a controversial ad that at the same time isn't scandalous enough to get banned. So how do brands deal with all this and what consequences do their risky tactics face? Let's look at some notable examples.
Marketing your business on Facebook is one of the most effective ways to reach and target audiences through social media. With 2 billion monthly active users, it’s no wonder as to how Facebook is able to reach such a massive audience. However in order to achieve successful results with your Facebook marketing efforts, it’s important to fully understand and take advantage of the platform’s analytics tools.
If you’re a small business trying to increase your reach and brand equity, look no further than Pinterest. While Pinterest may not necessarily come to mind when you think business growth and sales conversions, it should. There are countless statistics that show the power of the pin and how small businesses are leveraging their brands on this social media platform.

I've decided to ask the experts - people who've been doing growth hacking successfully for years using all the help from the available software.
