At the beginning stage of your social media plan, before you can get started, you will require a product or service you can promote. For example, podcasts like Fresh&Fit, and the Rational Male use social media, primarily Youtube, because the main audience is males under 25. The services of both of these podcasts primarily target men, and their services are how to become a better man, primarily self-help and entertainment.
Social media will ultimately help you build a market reach platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter have made social marketing cheaper, with hundreds of thousands of people available on the tips of your fingernails. Social media is primarily meant for socialization, so your product or services must have a strong social component. For example, the recent YouTube star Kevin Samuels uses Instagram to build a female audience and YouTube to target the male audience. What Kevin Samuels has successfully created using these two platforms and Zoom, Patreon is a community of like-minded individuals to bond over the services Kevin Samuels provides.
Social media consultants influence today’s new online marketers as the influencer and independent business owners who successfully leveraged social media to create market reach. When starting on a journey to promote products or services, it is necessary and advised to seek a consultation with a professional or look at what has worked and has been successful and try to replicate others’ success.
Finally, when creating a social media plan, it is crucial that you must be a person someone your target audience can relate to or that you offer a product or service that they desperately need. This is where the creation of your community becomes essential and how you can amass followers which will promote your individual or company brand as well as your services and products. This can be demonstrated by the image consultant Kevin Samuels who uses Facebook and Instagram to build his reputation and, in time to market products to its customers. What Mr. Samuels does is create a community. Over time, he monetizes as a community by using patriot on, donations on Youtube, and private consultations with individuals to build an income.
Overall, the steps involved in creating and developing a successful social media plan include using social media, being authentic, not initially monetizing your community, and most importantly, being authentic and genuine. If you follow all of these steps, you will have a successful media plan to develop and grow your audience. Over time, you need a strong product or service to offer your community, and your community will increase your brand and name for you.
