Do you want to do more with your personal or company branding? This post will walk you through how to develop and implement a social media strategy that best works for you.

DO YOU KNOW WHO YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS? DO YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND THEM?

It is important to understand who your target customers are by effectively developing customer personas for your target audience. Spend some time focusing on understanding your audience’s generation, social media usage, interests, hobbies, etc. as it will assist you with understanding how you want to effectively market to each segment.

DO YOU KNOW THE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM THAT BEST ALIGNS WITH YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE?

With understanding your target audience, you will also want to know where to reach them. For example, LinkedIn is great for reaching business professionals, and Pinterest is a great platform for reaching your female target audience. However, when posting on LinkedIn, make sure you have set-up a business page for your company unless you want the company branding and messaging directly associated with your personal profile. When posting on multiple social platforms such as  Facebook and Twitter, you can also apply helpful apps such as Buffer to help you post content at the same time on multiple platforms.

Facebook: 1pm-4pm

Twitter: 1pm-3pm Mon-Thurs

LinkedIn: 7am-9am, 5pm-6pm

Google+: 9am-11am

Pinterest: 2pm-4pm, 8pm-1am

STEPS THAT YOU CAN STICK TO:

1) Carve out time to research the content/topics that will connect with your target audience.

2) Think through the type of content that will best connect with you audience. Infographic, Article, You Tube Video, etc.

3) Research content on Twitter and Pinterest. This is a great way to find inspiration for your next post.
