3 Non-Negotiable Elements of a Great Social Media Strategy Plan

Social media was once seen as a passing fad. Now, businesses of the world are learning that it’s a force they need to reckon with since over half of the world’s population uses social media. 

But what are the best social media strategies? How can you learn how to run a business’s social media page? 

This article will walk you through some social media marketing tips to work into your social media strategy plan. 

1. Never Stop Posting

If you want your social media marketing to work, you have to constantly post. Paramount to making people believe in and care about your brand is providing them with consistent content. 

We recommend posting at least making Instagram posts two times a week, and updating your stories every day. It’s not easy, but it’s the speed of our contemporary world. If you can’t post more of this, people won’t be able to latch onto your brand and will instead find someone else.

This means posting on the days when you’re excited and posting on the days when you’re tired and bored. Some people say that you should work smarter, not harder; we say that you should work both smart and hard.

2. Engage With Your Audience 

There’s a reason why social media is called social media. It’s media that effectively allows the viewer to talk back.

Imagine that you could create a TV ad that a viewer could ask questions to and get reliable answers. Wouldn’t you want to make sure that you took advantage of this opportunity?

Especially if all of your competitors were doing it. Would you want to be the only person with an ad that couldn’t answer questions? 

This might sound a little silly, but it’s pretty much how social media works. If you can’t respond to your audience’s comments and questions in a timely fashion, you’re going to lose out on business.

83 percent of people expect replies on social media comments; those who cannot do this prove that they cannot keep up with the times. 

3. Keep A Consistent Voice

Brand voice is one of the strangest and most ephemeral things a business needs to deal with. Keeping the way you talk to your customers consistent lets people know that they’re interacting with real people. 

In the age of social media, you have to put out a lot more content than you did before. This makes it a constant struggle to keep a consistent voice. 

Develop a Social Media Strategy Plan 

If you want to make social media marketing work for you, you’re going to need to develop social media strategy plan that involves consistent posting, responding to your audience’s questions, and maintaining a consistent voice.  Develop these concepts and you’re far more likely to succeed.
