5 Critical Things to Do Before Creating Social Media Accounts

Woah, Nelly! 

Most things having to do with marketing and content needs some good, long, though-out planning. Social media accounts are something you don’t want to jump right into.

So before you go making social media accounts under a hasty (or duplicate) handle, here are 5 things to do before creating brand accounts:

  1. Nail down your goals: Inc. had this as step 4, but we think it’s #1. How do you make valuable content? You figure out the bigger picture. Are you looking for talent, business, followers, all of the above? Social media content should be catered to that goal.
  2. Define your target audience: This is also one of the first steps because what’s the point of social media networks – networking with real people. Think about your brand’s audience and how that translates to a target social media audience.
  3. Research your audience’s time spent: Once you figure out who, research their wheres and whens. That will determine where you’ll invest your energy. It might even reveal if you do or don’t need an account made.
  4. Make sure your content is valuable: Sharing is caring, but you have to care about what you share. Before you launch an account, be ready with valuable content.
  5. Establish metrics of success: How will you know if you’re succeeding or failing? Decide what numbers (followers, engagement, traffic, etc.) matter the most to your brand per each social media channel.

These types of steps can be taken with most marketing strategies, but check out the full Inc. article for all the details on steps towards your social media accounts.
