Social media. It’s on every marketer’s mind, but no one really knows who to make it succeed cost-effectively. For many, it seems like an endless effort with nebulous results. Businesses often fail in their social media efforts because there is no structure or commitment. There are no immediate results , or the goal ends up being more difficult to attain than previously thought, the effort goes by the wayside and forgotten. Very few people can simply choose to be active in social media and stick with it.
Here is a set of pointers to help you achieve “the plan”.
#5: Delegate Tasks
If you’re at the point where you’re looking at expanding to new platforms, congratulations! You’ve likely got a healthy presence. But don’t let all of this growth overwhelm you. The larger you grow, the more in danger you are of failing to engage (point #3), because—let’s face it—social media is a lot of work.
So look into adding some more team members. Graphic artists for your infographics, writers for your blogs and white papers and even some interns to manage the day-to-day social media conversations and information-gathering. A talented team can give you a richer, more robust presence than you could ever achieve on your own.
Or you can always hire us.
