You can also use free management tools like Buffer or HootSuite.
Grow your following by promoting your social media channels. Including your social media buttons on your website, in the footers of marketing emails and in signatures, physical signage(in-store), and Social media ads is a sure way to make sure all of your traffic funnels to the correct place. This will also get you in front of new audience members.
To make sure that you are reaching your goals, measure your results daily, weekly and monthly. Use each network’s analytics platform to review your metrics. You should be tracking followers, reach, interactions, impressions, and how these results measure up to your goals. To optimize your plan for the best performance, you’d need to look at your three most popular post from the past month. Look for patterns so that you can do more of what is working. Figure out how to tweak your calendar to do more of what is working well.
Run promos for your products and services. Create compelling offers to use your social media platform as a sales channel. Each promo should include a timely and compelling offer with clear details, a compelling image related to the offer, and an easy way to act on the offer (Call to Action). Make sure that you are targeting a specific audience and that you do optimize your promos and ads for a specific metric.
Once you have met your S.M.A.R.T. goals, go back to the beginning of your strategy to make adjustments and increase your influence.
