    Thanks for this Alex – Good info for any business.
    Plan the work – is the easy part. The difficulty is following through and being consistent. Your recommendation of getting info out weekly is right on.

    Great read! Social media has become such an important and interesting platform in marketing that using it to create a positive online persona is extremely important. On the flip side, using poor judgement in social media can destroy a business. If you’re targeting a large percentage of your market, what happens when you slip up?

    • Alex Hamm
      Alex Hamm
      3 years ago

      Agreed Jake, super important! This is why it is important to do social RIGHT, rather than just try to do some crappy social marketing just for the hell of it

    Direct, concise, to-the-point. Fair-play Alex. A very apt blog post given the amount of social media marketing consultancies that are currently establishing themselves. I’m strongly considering doing a bit of freelance social media marketing consulting myself in the new year. So a meeting point like this where we can share knowledge, experience, ideas and vision is great. All the best in the future Alex with all your endeavours.

    Ooooh this is a wealth of information. Love it. I am with you on the importance of quality. My posts take hours to write. I can’t help but admire those folks who churn out quality posts with ease. One day maybe?

    • Alex Hamm
      Alex Hamm

      Hopefully someday! ๐Ÿ™‚ haha. Yes, quality is a biggie.

  15. Alex, for me you’ve hit a home run with this one. My consulting firm specializes in social media education & integration for small businesses. Our clients come to us not knowing why they need social media; the world is just telling them they do. Your steps are easy to understand and digest. My most recent client didn’t know what a tweet was 4 months ago, now she’s tweeting relevant content regularly and using Buffer as her aggregate of choice! Thanks for following me today and recommending this post. Good stuff.

    Hi,
    I’m working through this process. Right now I’m catering, or trying to cater to, several audiences. I know that this is not going to work and it is in fact not a strategy. It’s more like wandering and I need to create a follow a map.

    Really good points. You gave me some things to think about. I always spread myself to thin and then get burned out from all the time it takes setting these things up. I think I’ll try smarter not harder. I especially liked the point you made about finding out where your target audience hangs out.Good Points!
