What is Social Media Management?

Simply posting content and interacting with your followers, right? Well, sure, that’s being on social media in general, but proper social media management is so much more than that.

Effective social media management is about posting and/or interacting with the right thing at the right time on the right platform with the right wording to drive website visits or leads or interactions or audience growth or event attendance or store visits. Whew!

Social media can reach audiences across your marketing funnel and drive a variety of actions. Strong social media strategies include detailed audience analysis, social media content planning (yes, it is different from other content planning), interaction efforts, audience building, and well-crafted paid social media marketing campaigns. It’s about looking beyond the “like” and establishing a deeper connection with your consumers.

Social media management, when done well, is about understanding your audiences in and out – from the time of day they are most likely to be online, to their favorite topics and viral trends. Effective social media strategies involve diving deep into your audiences and understanding what makes them tick. Then taking that knowledge and developing a unique plan that fits what your audience is looking for while exemplifying and amplifying your brand voice.
