Perfect Social Media Strategy | Medium

Before sending your first post, it’s important to have a detailed social media strategy in place.

This strategy should then document what you need to do in order to achieve these set objectives and be used as a guide throughout the rest of your process.

Review your branding to ensure it’s clear and consistent across all of your social media channels (and other marketing platforms).
