When you are setting up your social media marketing strategy, there are some essential elements that you need to consider. Let’s look at them and figure out how you can get started.

Know Your Audience

I know that I keep harping on about this, with it seems at times almost every article stating that you must know your audience… bit nothing can ever be done effectively when it comes to marketing if you have no idea who your audience is. It’s important so learn who they are, what makes them tick, what keeps them up at night, and how to find them and communicate with them.

* Understand Your Products and Services – If you created the products and services, you likely understand them. But if you’re promoting other people’s products and services, it’s imperative that you get to know them very well so that you understand the ways in which they benefit the buyer.

Set Proper Goals

Using the audience and product information that you’ve learned, it’s time to set goals for your social media marketing efforts. Each goal should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. This is called a SMART goal. You can look up SMART goals on Google to learn more about how to ensure your goals are smart. oh, and don’t just think about your goals, write them down… a goal not written down, is nothing more than a dream.

Use Automation Wisely

There is a lot of automation, but you want to be careful about how you use it. Put personalization and engagement at the forefront of your efforts to get the most out of all the automation you can use.

Connect and Build Relationships

Using social media to connect with others and build relationships one-on-one is an effective way to use social media marketing. It makes your audience start to be active when you present a call to action.

Promote Your Own Content and Other Content

When you created content it had a purpose, so it’s important to let your audience know about it. Also, in the effort to be a resource, you want to curate content from others that is of interest to your audience and promote that too.

Be a Resource to Your Audience

Remember that your most important function online is to be a resource for your audience. This will help you build trust, relationships, and a following that is ready to act on your CTAs like never before.

Focus on the Right Data

Part of marketing and business is all about the numbers. Don’t use just feelings to get social media marketing right. Use data that proves exactly what you should do going forward. Test your actions. Listen to the data and make good decisions based on the data.

Social media marketing is a very effective marketing method today. You can get involved with social media marketing with a very small budget and if you create a good plan that is audience focused, you will be successful.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.
