6 Steps in Developing an Optimal Social Media Marketing Strategy [Infographic]

These days, coming into social media marketing without a plan is guaranteed to see you fall flat, and lose out on opportunities.

In the early days of social, it was easier to start up a profile on a new platform and quickly build a following, but with algorithm changes, habitual shifts, and an increasingly digital native audience, who know what they like (and what they don’t), that’s no longer the case.
