Social Media Marketing Plan

Create Your Social Media Marketing Plan

The terms Social Media Marketing and Plan don't come together naturally for me. The endeavor can be anything but organized at times. You feel like you open up your favorite platform with every good intention to work, and an hour later realize you've gone down so many rabbit trails you can't remember where you started, right?

So I posed the question to a couple of recognizable heavy hitters in the industry  to get their take on creating a social media marketing plan that will keep us all focused and making the mulah in 2016 🙂

Question:

What is your advice to fellow online marketers on building a strong social media marketing plan?

“When I first decided to take my business onto Instagram I felt overwhelmed with just the thought of adding an additional Social Network into the mix of my marketing.

So when I first opened a account on Instagram (I hate to say it) I let it sit for about 6 months because I had no idea how I would incorporate Instagram into my current marketing strategy without taking time away from what I was already doing…

Eventually I figured out how to incorporate it obviously but only after I got over my misperception of it being hard to incorporate or it taking away from my other social media marketing strategies.

Instagram is a breeze once you learn it … In fact you will probably find that all your Social Media marketing efforts become a lot easier plus you’ll look like a pro with all that great content you’ll be sharing. … ”

My Takeaway: Don't be afraid to mix in something new to your social media marketing plan. It may be the key that makes your other platforms easier!

“Having a social media strategy in place is critical for your business growth.

However, I see a lot of entrepreneurs whose social media strategy is pretty much about throwing a lot of mud up against the wall and hoping it sticks. Unfortunately, that’s not a strategy that’s going to put your business into profit…social media marketing plan

Believe it or not implementing a social media strategy is a science, but definitely not rocket science …

There are 4 things you need to focus on when it comes to your social media strategy:

  • Listen to Your Audience
  • Influence Your Audience
  • Network Within Your Audience Or Marketing Niche
  • Sell Your Products And/Or Services

My Takeaway: Did you notice what was on the bottom of the list? Selling. The first three things she focuses on in planning a social media marketing strategy all have to do with building relationships. And the biggest key to getting the rest of that relationship-building right is LISTENING.
