Social media Startegy

Executive summary

We need social media activity to increase awareness of the brand and engage more traffic to the website.
A significant increase in performance will be visible after each published update. A slight decrease will be inevitable after the spur of content, although it is expected but will still generate better results than the previous period.

Goals
Our social media goals are:

  • Increase awareness of the brand
  • Get more traffic from social media platforms to the website
  • Increase the engagement and performance on published content on social media.

Key performance indicators

  • Increase social media reach to the website with at least 50% Example from LinkedIn; 143 unique visitors to 250 unique visitors each month.
  • Increase traffic from social media to public and corporate website from an average of 0,35% users/year (73 users) to 0,70% (146 users).
    That is 6 users per month to 12 users per month.

  • Increase the number of followers by 30%.

  • Increase post-performance, such as shares, likes and clicks from external users (Not company employees) by 65%.

The measurements above are set as S.M.A.R.T by 2020.
S.M.A.R.T = Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely.

Social Media Posting
The type of original content that we will create and post for all platforms is:

  • News in business relations
  • Internal events and developments
  • Promoted content for conversion and awareness

The type of related content we will share is:

  • User generated content, such as; Collaborations and events
  • Website entries
  • Share of stock

We will post to the following channels this frequently:
LinkedIn – 3 times/week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.
Facebook – 2 times/week, Wednesday and Thursdays
Instagram – 2-4 times/week, Tuesdays (Wednesdays) and Thursdays

Note*
The text content in each post should be short, simple but still communicative. Describe shortly what the content is as well why your audience should be interested in that content.
