Social Media Strategy for small businesses in Ghana

Without getting too deep here, the Internet, like the universe, is constantly expanding. There are new tools, new sites, new platforms, new rules, and new galaxies being discovered all the time.

But before you get overwhelmed thinking your site is going to get sucked into the black hole of online oblivion, we can help. By developing a social media strategy that is active instead of reactive, strategic instead of tactical.

We will put down some objectives and metrics that will make your website perform as if the Force is with you.

Step 1: Everybody is Somebody When it comes to Social Media.

Social media and its effects impacts all areas of your company – sales/marketing, production, customer service, legal, etc. Thats why no one person should be crowned king of social media in your company. To be really effective you need to be more representative – create a team from the various departments of your company to maximize their experience and perspective on your social media strategy. This will also make sure everyone knows whats going on when it comes to your online activity.

Step 2: Theres a Time to Shut Up and Listen

And that time is now. Being a good listener is an invaluable tool and never more so than in social media. You can learn a lot by listening to what your customers are saying – not just about your brand but about your competitors, and other things they value or are turned off by. And speaking of competitors, its also important to listen to what messages they are pumping out and where they are turning up.

Step 3: Stay Focused

You can’t be all things to all people nor can you accomplish all your goals in one campaign. You’ll be far more effective if you choose one goal, maybe two, TOPS, for your social media strategy. Do that, do it well. Then move on to slay the next dragon.

Step 4: Are We There Yet?

To figure out how successful we’ve been with our social media strategy, we need to define what success really means to your business. Is it more sales? Is it sign-ups? Downloads? Likes? How will you measure return on investment?

Step 5: Know Thy Customer

We need to know who your target audience is if were going to find them online. Its crucial to understand their demographic, their wants, needs, challenges, and interests. Then we can craft a message they’re going to hear loud and clear in a place where they want to hear it.

Step 6: People first

Social media is just that, social. That means people interacting with other people, so to be successful you need to be sure your company is acting like a person, not a corporate entity. It’s important to start thinking about how you can express the human elements of your brand even if you’re in the B2B market because believe it or not, they’re people too.

Step 7: Create a Channel Plan

Once we understand your audience and your message, we need to create a tactical plan for how, where and when we’re going to reach out to on social media, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin Instagram, G+ etc.
