You can use both LinkedIn and Facebook for marketing your business services. Both are good to increase social traffics and sales.
Just post relevant and interesting content in both networks.
Twitter is also one of the best platform for promoting business services.

Facebook & Linkedin, Both are great social media networks.

Facebook is little & entertainment social media, Linkedin is professional & great social network so I appreciate LinkedIn more than Facebook for Business.

Hello!

In my opinion, both sites are great for promoting your website.

While Facebook offers a variety of methods for your business to get noticed, such as getting an ad on side bar of Facebook page, lets others share your company's posts, LinkedIn also offers great promotional methods as well. In this case, LinkedIn lets you promote with self-approach to connections and finding your targeted audiences and/or customers. Even more so, LinkedIn lets you self promote to your future partners as well. Overall, both sites offer different platforms that you can use to your advantage.

Goodluck,
Smartkpis

For me, it depends on the kind of business you have. Linkedin is a better place to offer services since your audience would usually be the heads of departments or even be the CEOs. With Facebook, on the other hand, you can reach a wider set of audiences. Also, people are more active on Facebook. So it's a matter of, are you looking to market business to business or directly to consumers. But since both can easily be managed, I'd go for both. Hope that helps!

In terms of target users it will be Facebook compared to Pinterest.

The best way to find out, which distribution channel works best is through testing and experimenting.

Try out your marketing efforts in LinkedIn and run the rest through Facebook. Always remember that what works for another company doesn't mean it would also work for you.

You can also try and see if Quora is a good fit for your business. You can answer relevant questions related to your product and establish yourself as an expert in your industry.
