How to Kick-start Social Media for Your Business

The first thing you have to ask yourself is, what do we want to accomplish with social media? What are our goals and objectives? If you’re a new business, then it might be:

  • Generating 500 new visitors per week the first month we’re launched
  • Generate 5 leads through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram
  • Generate 100 total engagement across all social media accounts
  • Grow 100 followers per week through social media publishing

You want to make sure you quantify what you’re trying to achieve. We have a motto here we swear by, “Serendipity is not a growth strategy.” The reason we quantify these metrics is so we can see how much work needs to get done in order to achieve the results we set out for ourselves.
