Social Media Strategy in 10 Steps

I wrote a more detailed article in IndieMade's Resource Section, but make social media work for your indie business boils down to these 10 steps:

  1. Surrender.  Social media is the media of today.
  2. Ask yourself what you want to achieve through using social media.
  3. Sign up to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and listen for a while.
  4. Figure out what's missing in the social conversation.
  5. Get yourself a domain name and a professional website if you haven't already. 
  6. Create unique content on your website's blog.
  7. Become a "one stop" resource on a niche topic.
  8. Share yourself authentically on social media, minding everyone is listening.
  9. Use smart, time saving strategies.
  10. Experience growth.
