You need to know your target audience so you can create content they will like, comment on, and share with others.

4. Select the Right Social Platforms

Keep in mind that certain social platforms may be more effective than others for your business.

5. Develop a Content Strategy

6. Monitor and Analyze Your Results

Use analytic tools to measure your performance against the goals, business objectives, and metrics you set earlier.

Dive into those comments and messages—respond, ask for feedback, and most importantly engage with your community’s content. Building a community is SO IMPORTANT for growth on social.
