Social Media Marketing Basic Action Plan

SocialMediaChecklist_thumbFor most people and small businesses, marketing on multiple social media channels can be overwhelming. And it’s understandable. Trying to juggle running the day to day operations of a business, staying focused on generating sales while thinking, planning, responding on the different social networks can push a person into “tilt mode”.

Take the information in this graphic as a basic but effective social media marketing checklist for your business on the top social media networks:

Separating out each social network instead of looking at what you’re going to have to do for all the networks makes planning so much easier. Social media marketing can definitely be an overwhelming and time consuming marketing channel, but if planned out, the execution and results can be fantastic!
