Social Media Lesson: Rounding Out Your Social Media Strategy for Continued Success
In the social media field, platforms, algorithms, case studies, and approaches will always change. Sometimes this takes a few months, but others can change in a moment’s notice. We have to be adaptable and responsive to the changes each platform makes, but we also have to recognize how this will continue to raise challenges and bring forth new opportunities at the same time. We can always make assumptions to which social networks people will go to next, but to make official judgements on this, we have to look at the data and determine where exactly people are at. Understanding what works for your brand and the designated community on social media has to be done on a case-by-case basis. Social media is a many-legged beast, with a lot of information, content, and metrics to wrangle. But there are a few other things to think about when it comes to rounding out your social media strategy. In this lesson, you’ll understand social media risk and governance, employee advocacy, and crisis strategies.
