Using Social Media Management to Leverage Growth

We’ve compiled some steps for you to get the most from your strategy



The Castle in the Clouds


When “influencer” became an actual aspiration, many people, businesses, and organizations saw money signs in their eyes.


What actually works?


Frequently, the things that go viral seem like magic beans that spawned a giant beanstalk overnight. You can have consistent results, instead of hoping for (or relying on) magic and luck. If you are confident in your message and ready to spread it into the world, consider the best ways to expand.


Social media management can be an effective way to leverage growth for your business or personal brand.


Though, when you’re free to do everything, it’s often hard to begin to do anything. It’s clear you need to be posting content, but what’s your overall goal?


How does your content lead you to that destination?


Sometimes internalizing simple advice is the best route.


Before the enormity of the task ahead begins to become overbearing, take some time to focus on the simplest aspects of your social media strategy.


Here’s where to start:

  1. Define your goals: Before you start creating content or posting on social media, it's important to define what you hope to achieve. Are you looking to increase brand awareness, drive traffic to your website, generate leads, or something else? Once you have clear goals in mind, you can create a social media strategy that will help you achieve them.

  2. Choose the right platforms: Not all social media platforms are created equal. Depending on your goals and target audience, certain platforms may be more effective than others. For example, if you're targeting a younger demographic, you may want to focus on platforms like TikTok or Snapchat. If you're targeting professionals, LinkedIn may be a better choice. Take into account both your message and the demographic you want to reach.

  3. Create compelling content: Social media is all about content, so it's important to create content that is engaging and relevant to your audience. This can include text posts, images, videos, or a combination of all three. Make sure your content is visually appealing, easy to read, and provides value to your audience. Keep a sense of perspective, as well. There are 8 billion people on the planet, you only need a small fraction to engage with you.

  4. Engage with your audience: Social media is a two-way conversation, so make sure you're actively engaging with your followers. Respond to comments, answer questions, and thank people for their support. This will help build a loyal following and create a sense of community around your brand. The more people you include in your movement, the more likely your message spreads to new audiences.

  5. Use analytics to measure success: To determine whether your social media strategy is working, you need to track your results. Use analytics tools to measure engagement, reach, and other key metrics. This will help you identify what's working and what's not, so you can adjust your strategy as needed.


By following these tips, you can use social media management to leverage growth for your business, brand, or movement. Remember, social media is a long-term game, so be patient and consistent in your efforts. Nothing here is an exact science, be confident in your vision and be realistic about what is effective. You may need to redirect your efforts multiple times, don’t get disoriented.


See the destination from every angle and make sure your actions are leading you toward it–no matter what that path looks like.
