Create A Successful Social Media Plan

Social media has become an important piece of every business marketing plan. To be successful has also become more difficult as more businesses turn to digital marketing to reach their audience. It is essential to have a strategic social media plan to help stand out from the crowd.

5 Steps To A Successful Social Media Plan

Create Measurable Objectives

Setting measurable and realistic goals is vital to a successful social media plan. Think SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-based. You can better evaluate your successes and failures to get the most from your strategic plan by narrowing down your analytics.

Who Is Your Target Audience?

Any successful strategic social media plan is targeting the right people with the right content. Narrow down your audience and set the parameters for targeted social ads with specific content that will garner clicks and sales. Evaluate who your target audience is. Really focus on a detailed profile of your ideal customer to better target your content, ads, and efforts.

Develop Your Content

Once you’ve set up a strategic outline of your target audience, turn your focus to the content you’re producing. What message do you want to provide to your audience? Are you pushing for increased sales? List building?

Create original messages that will set your brand apart while sharing content from like-minded businesses to engage your audience. Don’t lose your brand in sharing others’ content.

Choose Your Platforms

If you’re a photographer, focusing on a platform that isn’t friendly to images is not a wise move. But, if you love infographics and want to portray a visually appealing brand, Pinterest and Facebook are great opportunities to create eye-catching posts that will leave your audience wanting more.

Engage Your Audience

Once you’ve built your following, it’s important to engage your audience and not just leave them hanging. Post content often that is relatable and requires participation. Engaged followers will share your content, participate in your posts and lead to sales.
