social media marketing strategy from scratch

You hear the Marketers say it all the time- social media marketing works. That’s because social media not only holds a place to advertise businesses; it also creates a space to build lasting customer relationships at scale.

Plus, with an abundance of users( with Millions of Monthly users), there’s no doubt that you’ll find your Potential Customers using these social platforms. But how do you build a successful social media marketing strategy to reach them?

Social media Channels Like Facebook, Intsta, Youtube, Pinterest, and LinkedIn have a Huge number of monthly users that could be your potential Clients.

Begin your Brand’s social media Journey with these six steps to define your social media Objectives, evaluate your resources, and choose the correct platform and content for your social media marketing strategy.

How to create a  Social Media Marketing Strategy from Scratch

Step 1. Set social media marketing goals that align with business objectives

Set S.M.A.R.T. goals – social media marketing strategy from scratch, the first step to creating a winning strategy is to establish your objectives and goals. Without goals, you have no way to measure success or return on investment (ROI).

Each of your goals should be:

1.Specific
2.Measurable
3.Attainable
4.Relevant
5.Time-bound
6.Track meaningful metrics

Vanity metrics like retweets and likes are easy to track, but it’s hard to prove their real value. Instead, focus instead on targets such as leads generated, web referrals, and conversion rate..

You may want to track different goals for different channels, or even different uses of each channel. For example, some Digital marketing Agencies drives brand awareness with its paid social campaigns, but measures acquisition and engagement for organic social posts.

Make sure to align your social media marketing goals with your overall marketing strategy. This will make it easier for you to show the value of your work and get executive buy-in and investment.

Step 2. Learn everything you can about your audience

Create audience personas

Knowing who your audience—and ideal customer—is and what they want to see on social is key to creating content that they will like, comment on, and share. It’s also critical if you want to turn social media followers into customers for your business.

Try creating audience/buyer personas. These allow you to think of your potential fans, followers, and customers as real people with real wants and needs. And that will allow you to think more clearly about what to offer them.

Step 3. Research the competition :

Odds are, your competitors are already using social media—and that means you can learn from what they’re already doing.

Conduct a competitive analysisA competitive analysis allows you to understand who the competition is and what they’re doing well (and not so well). You’ll get a good sense of what’s expected in your industry, which will help you set social media targets of your own. This analysis will also help you spot opportunities. For example, maybe one of your competitors is dominant on Facebook, but has put little effort into Twitter or Instagram. You might want to focus on the networks where your audience is underserved, rather than trying to win fans away from a dominant player.

Step 4. Conduct a social media audit

Examine your current efforts: If you’re already using social media tools, you need to take a step back and look at what you’ve already done and accomplished. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What’s working, and what’s not?
  • Who is connecting with you on social?
  • Which networks does your target audience use?
  • How does your social media presence compare to that of your competitors?

Once you gather all this information in one place, you’ll have a good starting point for planning how to improve your results.

Step 5. Find inspiration

While it’s important that your brand be unique, you can still draw inspiration from other businesses that are great on social.

Social network success stories :You can usually find these on the business section of the social network’s website. (Here’s Facebook’s, for example.) These case studies can offer valuable insights you can apply to your own goals for each social network.

You could also check out the winners of The Facebook Awards or The Shorty Awards for examples of brands that are at the top of their social media game. Your favourite brands on social media. Who do you enjoy following on social media? What do they do that compels people to engage and share their content?

National Geographic & Airbnb, for example, are some  of the best on Instagram, combining stunning visuals with compelling captions and stories..

Step 6. Create a social media content calendar

Sharing great content is essential, of course, but it’s equally important to have a plan in place for when you’ll share content to get the maximum impact. Your social media content calendar also needs to account for the time you’ll spend interacting with the audience (although you need to allow for some spontaneous engagement as well).

Create a posting schedule: Your social media content calendar lists the dates and times at which you will publish types of content on each channel. It’s the perfect place to plan all of your social media activities—from images and link sharing to blog posts and videos. It includes both your day-to-day posting and content for social media campaigns. Your calendar ensures your posts are spaced out appropriately and published at the optimal times.

Plot your content mix: Make sure your calendar reflects the mission statement you’ve assigned to each social profile, so that everything you post is working to support your business goals. For example, you might decide that:

1. 50 percent of content will drive traffic back to your Business blog – that is provide More Information/Knowledge about your specific Niche.
2. 25 percent of content will be curated from other sources
3.20 percent of content will support your company promotion goals (selling, lead generation, etc.)
4.5 percent of content will be about Human Resources(HR) and company culture
