The reason to be active on social media is because that is where your audience hangs out more than any other place online. Social media offers you inexpensive marketing channels to communicate with customers in a new and unique way.

The first step is to know which platform is best for your business since they are not all created equal attracting different audiences who communicate in different ways.

Social Media is not a one size fits all. Think about is as different rules with different conversations!

Once you know where your business is best served, your must learn what your audience wants from you.  It pays to remember this is a SOCIAL space and you are invited by followers to enter into conversations with them.  Like any chat with a friend in a social environment, its a give and take and not all one-sided.  You have to listen to learn what interests them, what they find funny, what they want to tell others about …

Assuming your social media marketing goals are the same as most effective marketers:

  • Attract their Ideal Customers.
  • Engage with them and builds trust.
  • Usher them down their sales funnel.

… then you will be motivated and spending a great deal of time on generating the type of content that is going to result in Engagement and attract news Likes and Follows. The first level of engagement is a “Like”, next best is a Comment with which you simply must engage to keep the conversation going and, TOP level is a Share … when people love your content so much that they just have to share it with all their friends.

It is only when your content is talking to the hearts, souls and minds of your audience that you will get any engagement.  You need to learn about them, what interests them, what challenges them, how you can plug holes better than your competition or be their go-to for info, expertise, advice etc.

The sure way to learn what works and what doesn’t is to vary your content and monitor your reporting statistics to see what is generating engagement and what is not.  The 14-day Chat Plan is one way you can implement a system to do exactly that.
