Creating a Social Media Strategy for 2018

Creating a Social Media Strategy for 2018

Did you know that a large number of consumers turn to social media for purchasing decisions? With 65% of American adults using social media, it is an essential part of any business in 2018. Whether you hire an employee to handle your social media strategy or opt for a digital marketing agency, you need to be developing a social media strategy for your business to thrive in today’s online world. Here are a few simple tips for developing and executing a social media strategy for your business in 2018:

Combine Quality and Quantity

There seems to always be an argument on quality over quantity in the digital marketing world, but when it comes to social media, it is important to combine both to benefit the most. Providing consistent content for your audience is important. However, your content also needs to fit the quality of your brand. Depending on the social media platform you choose to utilize, the amount of posting you do may vary. Twitter users, for example, need to post a few times a day, whereas Facebook users may only need to post once a day.

Scheduling Social Media

For some businesses, staying on social media 24/7 isn’t quite possible. Luckily, there are ways to schedule your posts on social media. Facebook, for example, allows you to schedule posts right from Facebook. Other platforms may benefit from using social media scheduling apps. Regardless, these tools can help plan your social media posts and keep everything online consistent.

Learn About Your Audience

A lot of companies blindly try to appeal to their audience in the online world. However, it is very important to learn about your customers and audience first. Understanding when they are online can be extremely important to getting engagement with your social media posts. Facebook and Instagram allow you to view this data via their platform. For Twitter, we recommend using certain social media management apps to view when your audience is online.

Engage Your Audience

A lot of times, asking your audience to engage is a great way to boost your post’s visibility. This can be done by asking questions, requesting them to tag a friend or even asking them to post a picture of their own. It is also important to engage with your followers after you have posted. Be sure to like their comments and always respond, even if it is just a simple “Thanks.”
