Breaking Into Social Media For The First Time: Step-By-Step

So you’re looking to break into the social media scene and your audience is salivating to see your business in action now. Well, I have news for you! It takes time and effort to see success in the social media scene and it also takes a little help from your friend Cole. In this new blog post, we will be speaking about a step-by-step way for you to see success within social media and get your business running in the right way.

We will speak about a process that you can use to see success when it comes to finding your audience, evaluating the competition, creating a plan for yourself and how you can have some extra help (if you need it). So let’s get right into the post shall we!

Evaluate The Competition

You need to evaluate your competition and get a better idea of what you would like to accomplish online and on social media. It is paramount to acknowledge that you might not know everything in this game of social media because there has been several people before you that have been using these platforms to make magic. So how can you evaluate? You can start by looking at the leaders in your industry. What people are doing well? Who can you reach out? Who is willing to help you see success?

These are some of the questions you need to be able to ask yourself as you move into this journey of finding your best self on social media. You also need to understand that there are different influencers on all of these platforms that you need to be made aware of when you are trying to get more popular. There are people who have being doing this for a while, so get familiar and make yourself a standout character in the world of social media.

Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Tik Tok, Snapchat, and the list goes on and on. These are all different places that you can use to build your brand but essentially they all require you to evaluate the competition and evaluate your place in all of this massive world of social media.

Understand The Potential Target Markets

Next, we are talking about your target market. What the heck is a target market? It is the people you are trying to reach and this must be the most important part of your life online. Make yourself a expert at social media by evaluating the potential target and getting familiar with them as you move forward.

One way to do this? Get going with your commenting, value selling and just outright caring about your target market has to say about your product. Once you actually know who you are targeting, you better go after them with all your marketing. This means that you will spend time maintaining that relationship. Your target market may look around at other people while you are in a relationship with them but you can keep them around by providing value and giving them some sort of reason to keep coming back and seeing your content.

People are always going to look around and your target market might change on this journey through the cosmos… I mean your journey through social media. A piece of advice for you would be to evaluate who is actually commenting, liking and viewing your post on these sites and prioritize these people and show them that you appreciate them and having them around in your life.

Make an effort to show you care and you will keep your target market around for a long time.

Create Your Plan Of Action

Yes, you need a plan of action because then you are like that headless horse man that you hear about in all those stories. Sure, he might know where he is going out of habit but for you, you need a plan so you can continue to see success with your target audience that we just finished speaking about before. So how do you create this plan? You take the information that you know already and make a schedule for yourself. This is often called a content calendar for those who are new to this marketing stuff.

How do I make one of these Cole? Well I’d suggest you come up with a few brainstorm ideas before you start making a plan for yourself. One of the ways that I have been able to see at-least some success with what I am doing in my life is by taking a notepad and just writing everything down like a mad man. Take the time to just write down whatever may come to your head on a piece of paper and start the whirlwind of magic.

You are the master of this plan, you can create amazing content by just taking the time to actually evaluate your ideas and put them on the calendar. One more thing, you should make the calendar by not just writing all your ideas per day. Make it easier on yourself, make theme content that you can use for the week because that is a good way to truly make a habit of it all. When things are easier to do, we tend to do them better so try this out for yourself and see if it helps you in your creations.

Maintain And Update Your Plan

Yes, you will need to continue to maintain the plan and keep it working for a long period of time. Once you step into the world of social media, there is no going back to the life that you had before you started doing this. Make an effort to update and maintain your content because this is how people will continue to take notice of your efforts and keep coming back to see what you are going to come up with next!

When you are consistent with your content people will start calling you out and they will start commenting on the fact that you are being constant with the value you are providing to the world. So how do you continue to do this? Make reminders for yourself or your budding company. Tons and tons of apps for this one people. You can use apps that allow you to be as effective as possible. These apps will give you a constant reminder to post, to comment, or post another video so people can come back and pay attention.

I would like you to be the best person and most unique person on the planet with your budding content so I would recommend you get a team. Make a team that you can use to hold you accountable for the many actions you are doing on social media. This is the best way for your business to grow. I find the best way to do this is by giving a friend the sole right of reminding (or kicking) you to get things done. Let’s make something incredible, get yourself some help if you need to maintain and continue your success on social media.
