continuing to build that brand identity. Third, your company will want to research and learn about
its customers and social media users. This is going to help you understand what your customers like,
what products are best going to serve their needs, and exactly how you can reach them.

discussions for particular products and services. Work to create a list of your top platforms—the
ones that have the biggest pool of potential customers for your brand. Build a profile for yourself on
these platforms that are engaging and most importantly, aligns with your brand’s identity.

Consciously contribute, while making sure that you aren’t just pushing ads and marketing gimmicks
onto users. This is your chance to build your reputation and rapport with consumers. Now, you can

how your customers think and exactly what products and services they want. This, coupled with
consistent analytics, is going to help your business with new product launches.
Now you’ve that you’ve built your foundation, it’s time to start analysing your performance. Analytic
software tools, such as Google Analytics will enable you to assess and check how the strategy is
working, and will show where exactly and how it is impacting. These tools can also track customer
leads, conversion rates, and traffic being generated from your platforms. They will be the same ones
that guide your company in terms of utilizing paid versus organic social media, as well as creating
product launch campaigns. But most importantly, analytics are what’s going to help your company
adjust and adapt its social media strategy as you grow and evolve.
