Like the content marketing strategy, social media strategy involves content assets being brainstormed, created, published and promoted to meet a particular objective. Doing this well can save you thousands of dollars down the road in rework since your team is creating from data-driven decisions, rather than inspiration.

Anyone can put out content on social media. The hard part comes when you want to:

  1. Target a specific audience
  2. Aim for engagement
  3. Compare yourself to competitors
  4. Moderate unwanted interactions
  5. Post consistently
Social Media Strategy

An impactful B2B social media marketing strategy includes a mix of various tactics and deliverables, such as:

  • Content marketing strategy: After you decide to focus on your social media strategy, you should focus on your content management strategy
  • SEO (Search Engine Optimization): Search engines reward businesses that publish quality, consistent content
  • Press Releases: Successful PR strategies should address readers’ concerns, not their business.
  • PPC (Pay Per Click Advertising): To work effectively, you need to drive website visitors to relevant content on your website and encourage them to convert
B2B social media marketing strategy 101: Important questions to ask first. 
  • Who are you creating content for? 
  • What is the problem you are trying to solve?
  • What makes your content different than your competitors?
  • What type of content would be best to convey your message?
  • Do you have a CMS (content management system) to create and publish content?
  • How will you reach your customers?
  • What are your main KPIs (key performance indicators)?
  • Do you have content you can repurpose to start with?

 

How do you start a B2B social media marketing strategy? Here are a few ideas:
  • Set goals and benchmarks for success
  • Create buyer personas
  • Conduct a content audit to identify gaps in your current marketing 
  • Brainstorm content ideas
  • Conduct keywords and identify opportunities for content creation
  • Choose the correct type of content for your message
  • Create a road map for how you’ll create and manage content 
  • Leverage your existing sales team and leadership as spokespeople and content creators
  • Content promotion and amplification
  • Paid advertising, PPC, and SEO to create demand generation 
  • Ensure you have an email marketing program like MailChimp
  • Track the performance of your content monthly or quarterly and report on this so you can identify trends
