Are You Social Media Satisfied?
Only 5% of companies are satisfied with their social media campaigns (based on a 2012 survey of more than 2,700 social media professionals conducted by Ragan/NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions.)
Of those respondents in the survey, many said they just don’t have time for social media. 38% of marketers spend 1-5 hours weekly on social media, 26% spend 6-10 hours and 15% spend more than 20 hours each week on social media. Despite this, only 5% said they were satisfied with their social media campaigns.
So what gives?
Isn’t social media supposed to be easy?
There are so many different social networking sites, marketing methods, rules to remember and procedures to follow that it can feel like taking on a second job. But it doesn’t have to be this difficult.
What is one reason so many brands struggle with their social media? They don’t have the right goals.
When you are focused on the wrong rules, you will not generate the results you seek.
I’m here to help you take the mystery out of your social media marketing so you can become social media satisfied.

Facebook loves to roll out new features that do what many of us were using 3rd party apps to do. It makes sense, really. I mean, they don’t want us to have to depend on another service to use their site effectively. Since Facebook came out with their own scheduling tool, they have made some changes and adjustments to it. I find it much less clunky and more stream-lined now than it ever was. Personally, I prefer it over third party software. I like to be able to look in one place and see what posts I have scheduled and when, and exactly what they will look like.

Yelp is a service that all small businesses should look into because millions of people use it to learn more about what to do in their city. They use this site to learn about new restaurants, exciting nightlife and the best stores in the area. If you are a local business, you need a Yelp page so that locals can find you when they are looking to shop or enjoy some entertainment.
The social media audit- this is a very important part of the social media process as it can tell you where you are in the game and help you see where you need to be.
So how can you conduct a social media audit? While a professional will always be able to give you added insight you don’t have yourself, you can still do your own audit to see where you measure up when it comes to the basics. That’s what we’re going to discuss in this post today.
