A social media strategy is not something that can be created overnight.
There is so much planning and analysis involved in it.
You must have a clear understanding of your company. Wether it be your target market, your aims, your budget etc. This right here is where most companies fail. If you miss one of these then your whole marketing strategy will be a was of money.
Target market is important firstly advertising for old people homes on Facebook is useless – unless you target the men and women that are considering putting their folks in a home. You have to put yourself in your consumers shoes and think of how they would come across your business and how they would perceive it.
Your aims/goals – Sorry to crush your dreams but you are not going to go viral overnight. Social media takes time. You are going to get disappointed and give up on your social media if you don’t have the correct goals/aims.
Get your story straight – Don’t post a advertisement about downloading your app if you are trying to get page likes- I know this sounds simple but It happens so often! Also post engagement is 60% higher when you have a picture on your post. You have to create a reoccurring trigger that lefts people know this is your brand.
Measure it- The best thing about social media is if one thing isn’t working you can change it in one second. Most sites like FB and Twitter give you metrics – But you have to do your own measurements as well – measure the rate of app downloads after a new post, how many likes you get every month, new followers etc.
