Get Organized

Before diving into content creation, organizing and planning your strategy is crucial. Here's what you need to consider:

  • Identify which platforms to focus on.

  • Align your business goals with your social media goals for each platform, and also with each other. In other words, what do you want to achieve on each platform's strategy and how will those platform-specific strategies work together?

  • Ensure consistent messaging across all social media channels. Think about your brand's voice in alignment with your goals. What primary messages will you focus on?

  • Define content pillars for each platform and how you will use them to guide your social media post topics. Using pillars can help you think of content in "buckets", which can help guide you toward a balanced overall strategy - and simplify your processes.

  • Plan how often you post daily and weekly and commit to consistency. Note - consistent is better than sporadic or nothing at all. 


Know Your Audience

Successful social media marketing revolves around understanding and engaging with your potential customers. Consider:

  • Who is your ideal customer, and what problems does your business solve for them?

  • What type of social media content resonates best with them, and which platforms do they frequent?

Engage With Your Followers - Be Social on Social Media

Engaging with your followers is key to expanding your audience. A few minutes daily can make a big difference. Use this time to:

  • Respond to comments, pose questions, and share relatable content from other accounts or influencers.

Work Smarter Using Social Media Management Tools

Managing social media accounts is much easier when you use management and automation tools. From built-in features on Facebook and Instagram to comprehensive services like Sprout Social or Agorapulse with various functions, including valuable analytics tools to shape your strategy.


Finding Your Content Mix

Balance your content mix to tell your brand story and offer value to your audience. Blend promotional, educational, and informative content with entertaining and inspirational posts. Refer to your content pillars from the planning stage to inform your posting strategy.
