The effective use of social media requires a plan that lays out a clear strategy. This plan will serve two important purposes. First, it will provide a record of the actions and milestones that have been decided. Referring to it will help maintain focus. Second, and more importantly, the plan will force you to think about strategy. Thinking is really the crucial aspect of a planning exercise. The written document simply articulates that thinking. As Dwight D. Eisenhower famously said, “Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.”
The content you create should be directed to capturing hearts and minds. We are all, by nature, self-interested. Our survival as a species and as social animals depends on that genetic characteristic. Therefore, content that satisfies our psychological needs will always be favorably received. Therefore, your audience wants much more than a corporate “show-n-tell”. They are looking for entertainment, industry updates, customer service and information on how current news will affect their world… not just information on your brand. As a result, it may be a good idea to position your company site as a hub for information about a niche or industry or some other specialized segment of the market.
