IT’S TIME FOR AN AUDIT: SOCIAL MEDIA AUDIT

SOCIAL MEDIA AUDIT: ENSURE YOUR CURRENT EFFORTS, STRATEGY AND PAGES ARE OPTIMIZED

Are you maintaining social media for one or multiple pages ‘on the side’ while working a full time job? 

Maintaining a social media presence can be a full-time job, which can be challenging if your full-time job requires your time and attention be spent elsewhere. Social media profiles can quickly fall into disrepair if left alone / out dated. An in depth audit, with reporting and update suggestions can help get things back on track.

A key part to creating a successful social media presence is developing a clear content strategy, and ensuring all pages, platforms and messaging are consistent. One way to do this is conducting a social media audit. This assesses how well your current social media use works for you. There are many different steps involved when doing a social media audit, working with an external expert will run a thorough audit of all existing social media (including audience, reach and competitive benchmarks). Following the audit your reporting should provide a clear and easy to navigate roadmap where you are preforming well and what areas need improvement.

Are you on facebook, twitter and instagram (among others) all day, every day posting, linking, sharing till your mouse runs out of batteries?

On the flip side, you may be over-posting to your social media profiles, which leads to unfollows and loss in reach. While you may take great pain to keep everything updated and cohesive, without a clear strategy and content calendar your efforts can sink your social ship. Audits are helpful in these instances, too. They can serve as much-needed opportunities for reflection and growth.
