My Social Media Strategy
My Social Media Strategy
Defining who you are talking to is a critical aspect of your social media strategy. Define your audience, speak directly to them and don't worry about anyone else. Here are the people I am trying to reach...
- Freelance Designers Trying to figure out their business.
- Small Agency Owners Looking to expand their business.
- Considering Freelancers Thinking about leaving a job to pursue a dream.
- Knowledge Hungry Creatives Always looking for ways to level up.
Define what you are trying to accomplish with your social media strategy. What does success look like? How will you know you've achieved it?
- Deep Engagement
Focus on building true friendships through direct messages and content collaborations.
- Follower Quality Over Quantity
It is better to have 1000 true friends/fans over 100,000 disengaged followers. Build the audience, one person, at a time. Every individual matters.
- Revenue is a Byproduct
People may buy my books, courses, or coaching sessions as a byproduct of quality content, but selling stuff is not the goal. Giving value content to help others is 100% the goal.
Define what makes your content unique. Why will people want to like, share, and engage with your content?
- Proprietary Content
I focus on sharing my own proprietary intellectual property and ideas from my books and agency life, content that cannot be found anywhere else
- Avoid Clichés
I won't share the same old quotes and concepts that people have already seen 100x.
- Concept Plus Implementation
I don't just give a concept, I share techniques for real world implementation.
Define the overall themes for your content. This should be limited to 3-5 core ideas. What content themes do you plan to share?
