Let’s use larger businesses as an example.

Big businesses don’t just hire social media teams for fun, they understand the value which running a successful business social media page can create for your business which is why they bring someone on to do these things for them.

The social media managers and guru’s that larger businesses hire to support their social media pages will always ensure the social media content etc contains these things as an absolute minimum to ensure their social media is successful at an extremely basic level.

2. Create an attainable strategy including goals!

Your strategy is your business plan to success.

Ideally it will have what you want to achieve online for your small biz and how you will achieve it.

Always aim to see improvement on your social media.
