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.

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!
