It seems like social media marketing success, which has been written about so many times, in so many books and blog posts and social posts, it seems like such lessons can’t be simplified into a simple, five-step list, right?

And of course, there’s a lot more depth to each step, there are specific elements which should be adhered to and factored in, there are processes under each of these headings which enable such. But as a basic outline, this is a solid list – from defining your brand purpose, to questioning how your messaging adds value (as opposed to simply promoting), to establishing the right KPIs for your specific business.

It’s a simple outline, but one which will likely serve you well as you seek to map out where you’re headed with your social media output.

Worth noting for your planning.
