How to Take The Overwhelm Out Of Social Media!

Mice & Men & Social Media Marketing

You’re probably a bit perplexed with the Title. I’m not.  Have you ever heard the phrase, “The Best Laid Plans Of Mice & Men.” This phrase got me thinking about plans. The definition of this phrase adapted from the book by Robert Burns, “To The Mouse” is no matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it. I don’t want anything with my business plans or social media plans to go wrong. I believe having a plan is crucial to your business.  So first of all, I can’t believe we are almost in August. I feel like this year is on steroids and moving full speed ahead. So what will the next 4 1/2 months bring? Do you have any big plans in your business? I’m already thinking down the road for my Business plan & Social Media marketing plan for 2018. I’m wondering if you have a Social Media marketing plan for your business till the end of the year? I’m wondering if you actually write down your Social Media marketing plans? I’m wondering if you question if Social Media marketing is even important? I’ve done some thinking about these questions and I thought I’d answer them.

Do you have a social media marketing plan for the next 4 1/2 months until December? I have talked to plenty of small business owners lately and not many have a plan in place. They have this random system that is not even targeted. Plus they don’t have the why. The “why” meaning; “Why are they doing what they do?” If you don’t know why you are doing something you have no idea what the results are going to be. You make a plan to try to get specific results. For instance, I post on Instagram at least once a day so that the people who are following me know me and see me at least once a day. This way I’m not a stranger. So that’s one of my many plans. Is it a good one! Yes! I spoke with someone the other day that is an acquaintance and you you know what they said to me. “I see you all over Instagram and Facebook!” That’s my goal! I want to hear that often.

That leads me to the next question. Do you write down your Social Media marketing plan? If you’re not you should make it a goal for the next 4 1/2 months to write your plans. This is the difference between failure and success. If you have some plans in front of you, you are more likely to see them and do them. Also if by chance you don’t have a why, writing these plans down on paper helps. So how do I do this? I use a blank calendar that I get online and I fill in the squares with my plan. Before I do that I write down some goals about where and when I want to use each platform! This to me is so important!

Is Social Media marketing important? I’m not sure I really have to answer that one, but I will. YES! Are you kidding me! How else will you get out there in a big way! If you don’t have a marketing plan, no one will know who you are!  So what about you? Do you have a Social media marketing plan in place?
