Do You Really Have A Social Media Strategy?

 Do you have a plan on what to do on your social media accounts? Do you have a plan of action that can give your business firm branding, good interaction, customers wanting to comment and speak with you, and admiration for staying with the times? It's both a cultural issue and also a technological concern. Social media strategies are complex and there is no other way to say it. They have to be well thought out and they must be implemented in both a contemporary and traditional way. What we mean by this is, stay on topic, stay on form and stay on message. But, you must be ‘hip’ in that you should be fluent in hashtagging, memeing, emoji usage and so much more.

Know them well


You must know your audience very well. A few things you need to have down before you move onto your strategy.


  • Their age

  • Gender disparity

  • Location

  • Job groups

  • Average salary

  • Interests, i.e. sports, policies, music

  • Etc


These are just some of the things you need to know about your audience. The key is getting the relevant information is to conduct research through your sales statistics but also your marketing interactions. The two should really correlate well with each other.

Gather the data


So how do you gather up the data you need? Use proper tank tanks and research firms that do this kind of stuff for a living. It can usually be done in-house but it will take a lot of time and effort and this is going to distract your employees from their roles. So, use a company like PEW research that can deliver you a fantastic report on which generation is more likely to respond to your campaign and why. They will also sift out the key reasons why they interact: is it the high-quality photos, the videos, the brand ambassadors you use or is it down to sales, and discount opportunities?


Content is critical


Here we are in the 2020s and still, the best type of marketing that is done even on social media is linked back to content. SEO marketing and creative content are staggeringly high on the agenda this decade. The overwhelming benefits of social media marketing when you have someone conduct content research reports for you is amazing. You can finally give content that your core audience wants to read. They actually want to click on the links you drop and consume the content within, be it an article, video, infographic, etc.


Beat them to the punch


Know your rivals and what they are up to. You do not want to have a running campaign along with a larger brand and be using the same sort of style and tactics. For example, if you are a small soft drink company and doing a campaign based on summer cold beverage relief, then you don’t want to run that at the same time, Pepsi are doing their own similar campaign. You will lose! So be tactile and beat your rival to the punch.


Social media is continuing to evolve. With Twitter increasing it's word count, Instagram having IGTV and even the former adopting ‘stories’ of a similar kind, you have a lot to play with on social media.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
