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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
