Think for a moment and ask yourself: “What are my social media goals for this year?” Make yourself a strong cup of coffee and sit down and plan out your year…
Here are 5 tips to get you started:
1. Have a Brainstorming session
What is it you exactly want to do on social media? Are you wanting to use it to share personal stories? Are you wanting to become a thought leader or a social media influencer? Are you here to build your business? Think it through.
2. Choose Your Social Media
It’s all very well to sit on every social media network but you will find that one of them works better for you than any other one, so choose which one fits your brand better. Is it Twitter with short and sharp tweets? Is it Facebook? Are you more visual and do you prefer Pinterest or Instagram? Perhaps you prefer creating video content, then you should focus more on YouTube.
3. Have A Strategy
Once you have decided where you are going, have a strategy in place. Decide exactly what it is you want to do. Have a plan and stick to that plan.
4. Build your Brand
Set mini-goals for yourself and try to slowly build your brand on social media. Share amazing pictures. Tell people about wonderful places. Upload spectacular videos. Start following interesting people.
5. Track your progress
At the end of each quarter of the year check your progress. Are you on track? Do you need to change anything? Do you like what you see on your timeline? Ask yourself these questions to determine your next course of action.
If you follow these simple tips you might just have your best year yet in 2015.
