Are you using social media to market your business and if so, do you have a social media strategy?social media strategy

This image reminds me of an octopus and just like an octopus wrapping its tentacles round you, without an adequate social media strategy you’ll find you can’t move forward.

If you’re a regular user of one or more of the social media platforms, you’ll know how easy it is to fritter your time away and not complete any of the tasks you set yourself.

So using social media for your marketing can be a dangerous game and a complete waste of your time unless you define what your social media strategy is to be.

How To Design Your Social Media Strategy

There are 10 basic steps to designing your own social media marketing strategy:

  1. Know your goals – what are you aiming to achieve?
  2. Research the market
  3. Who are your ideal customers?
  4. Who do you need to know?
  5. Where do your customers hang out and what are they talking about?
  6. Design your conversion funnels
  7. Create your content strategy
  8. Measure your results to see if your social media strategy is working
  9. Create a list of your daily tasks
  10. Systemize and automate

So there you have it.  I do hope that this information will be useful to you and that it will help you in planning your social media strategy.

I also hope it will act as a guide for you to achieve better results from all of the time and
energy that you may already be putting into the social media platforms on a daily basis.

My goal is to help you to become more efficient and get the maximum results in the
least amount of time possible with all your marketing strategies.
