What is your social media strategy? Do you have one? Most large businesses have a social media strategy, but should the small business owner follow the same strategy? Sage advice says that you should follow success, but imitating a large business when you’re working with a small business marketing budget could mean failure without the right kind of planning.
If you are a small business owner following the large business model it might be time to rethink your strategy.
Jessica Davis on Small Business Trends answers questions that a small business owner should be asking in the below article. She covers four key questions SME’s should be asking themselves.
- What content can I use to engage existing customers, find new prospects and find young budding talent?
- What are my competitors doing content wise in order to get their results?
- What social media platforms are my employees, customers and service providers on and how can I leverage their networks to best effect?
- What is the best software to use in order to manage my various social media accounts and get the biggest bang for my buck?
Having a social media strategy that fits the size and niche your business operates in should be “tailored” to fit your situation and no one else’s. A very good read for all SME marketers and business owners.
- Social networks are a necessity for all business sizes and types.
- Many small businesses run straight into creating content without setting outcome goals at the start. KPI’s are key for all marketing efforts.
- Content is at the core of any successful social strategy, and is usually intertwined with the goals that you wish to achieve on social networks.
