Social Media – Time to Reflect and Renew?
TPG Design attended a Social Media training workshop in October and found it a useful reminder to reflect and review our current activities. It’s easy to set off down a path and not take an audit of what you are doing and whether it’s useful and meeting your business goals.
Our checkpoints below are a useful list for both businesses using social media and those about to start.
Social Media Audit Checkpoints
- Channels- are you using the right one for your audience? Has it changed over time? What channel/s do your potential clients use?
- Follows/Forums- are you following/Subscribed to the right thought leaders/industry newsletters? Keeping up to date with these thought leaders will enable you to take part in interesting forums, take inspiration for your own blog posts.
- Goals – have they changed – does your social media need updating?
- Profiles- recent photo of yourself, testimonials? Do your profiles provide a cohesive brand image and business personality?
