    Thanks for these clear steps. We sort of just jumped into social media last year, but I think its time we started taking the right steps and integrating it into the rest of our marketing efforts. I’m still struggling with how to use social media for B2B. Any suggestions?? I’m open to any ideas

    Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV is golden example of how to use social media platforms to build brand equity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Vaynerchuk). I recommend to anyone interested in social ecosystem platform(s) to check out some of his work on youtube, notably: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhqZ0RU95d4

    G’s a bit nutty but in full in total control of his content.

    Solid advice, Jay. I just completed a social media strategy plan for a non-profit arts organization and followed those same steps. I believe that I developed a plan that will work for them, and perhaps even be fun to use. One important lesson I’ve learned is there is no “one size fits all” social media strategy. Social media usage has to be customized for the organization–and for the folks within that organization who will be responsible for maintaining it.

    How much you can achieve in a day depends on how many hours you are free online – it is better to master one strategy than hop all over the place. Begin tweeting and link to a daily blog post you write. When you have further time join stumbleupon and then create a facebook group. Link each activity with the others – ask your twitter followers to join your facebook group. You must allow time to get recognised in your market place. Social Media is vital but don’t neglect forum marketing and good old SEO! Just ten minutes daily spent on any one platform and you’ll manage 6 in an hour. Little and often is the key to increase awareness of your brand and offers.

    Mapping the planning process is so important. I think often marketers forget that social media marketing is… marketing. We don’t have to throw out what worked for our “other” marketing, such as the planning process.

    I presented at SES how to plan social media marketing with examples. You can see the steps and examples in this presentation here:

    Great post. Just recently started my own blog: blog.creatrixdigital.com and the idea is to blog about Social Media but in Ghana so we have posts like ’5 brands in Ghana rocking social media’ and things like that. And I’ve had a lot of questions about our target audience because social media is still very much in its infancy in these parts so rather than writing for digital marketers and social media experts, we have to keep remind ourselves that, that kind of audience is still very small but consumers abound so we have to gear our content such that it appeals to them. Thanks. You’ve really given me a guide we can use.

    One of the biggest obstacles to setting up a great business marketing plan for social media is that it is – SOCIAL. There’s a certain way to approach it, and blundering about in the old ways just won’t work. It’s a delicate dance of sell, socialize, sell, socialize….We all need to learn the new dance, and these are great tips for starting!
