Connect your social media strategy with marketing, sales and customer service goals
Could social media be any hotter?
Seventy-four percent of adults who are online use social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and more. The figure creeps up to almost 90 percent for adults 18-29.  Globally, there are about 2.2 billion active social media users, and about 12 new active mobile social media users are added every second—that’s about 1 million daily. 
Social media marketing helps organizations better understand consumers, reach new audiences and engage influencers who can move the needle on sales. Businesses that master this new breed of digital marketing engage and connect with customers, instead of simply broadcasting to them.
Our social media marketing approach
At Blue Door Consulting, business strategy drives social media marketing activities. Social media marketing could involve launching a new social sales channel, ala the Pinterest “Buy” button. Or, it could show off your company culture on Facebook to job seekers. It might include sharing relevant content that engages prospects who are in the decision-making process or turns existing customers into brand ambassadors. While we love a good cat meme (we’re only human), we know they’re only useful if they put us closer to established goals.
When aligned with organizational objectives, social media marketing amplifies your brand for powerful results. People are talking about you, and they’re talking about the stuff that matters to your ideal customers. It’s time for you to join the conversation.

Goal-driven process for social media marketing
Step 1: Listen and learn.
Our social media marketing process kicks off with discovery interviews and research. We need to know you, your competitors and your industry so we can assemble your best engagement plan.
Next is benchmarking. We look at where you are now and where you stand among your peers. Without benchmarking, we don’t know how much to celebrate your improvements. (We don’t want to show up with a bottle of Cook’s when you really deserve Dom Pérignon. How embarrassing!)
Step 2: Plan.
From here, we develop strategy: what are we trying to accomplish, why are we trying to accomplish it and which tactics will help us get there. This is when we draw up our roadmap, setting goals and establishing deadlines.
Step 3: Act.
After we know what we’re going to do in our social media marketing strategy, it’s time to get busy; it’s implementation time. Together we flip the switches on content, sales integration and more. We’ve picked the social platforms that best support our goals, and now it’s time for our brand to join the party.
Following implementation is measurement and monitoring. We need to know: What’s the ROI on this activity? How did that A/B test turn out? Which content drew the most shares? We track progress toward strategic goals—and discover our budget for bubbly!
In the end, there are enhancements and updates to evaluate, along with possibly joining new platforms—or not. Continuous improvement in social media marketing is driven by your goals and resources. We’re game for more experiments, but FOMO (fear of missing out) is not a strategic goal.
