Creating a Social Media Strategy Handbook

95% of the customers had a choice when they purchased the product or service in the first place, they had a reason for their selection. The single most successful way to use social media is empowering customers to share that reason and turn it into recommendations. The single biggest challenge: make it actually happen.

The Social Media Strategy Handbook

It became best practices to create a Social Media Strategy Handbook for each social media project documenting everything including the ultimate goal and purpose, initial market research, SWOT analysis, strategy, programs, actions, social presence, resources, budgets, reporting and the ROI.

We are sharing two examples of those strategy books that were created by attendees of the Social Media Strategist class. One was for Lindt Chocolate and one for a Hotel & Spa in the Caribbean.

The Social Media Academy is one of the official DSC12 sponsors.

Alternative Growth Strategies

The two day event is addressing alternatives to traditional and rather costly growth models.

As a result executives, business owner, social media manager and other business people joined forces and developed alternative growth strategies leveraging Social Media as an inexpensive and more humanized way to expand into new markets.

The Conference Objectives

The Digital Sunrise Conference is about three major aspects of business growth:

  1. Get managers and business owner from all over Europe meet and network
  2. Learn about alternative growth concepts as a way to overcome economic slow downs
  3. Rationalize the potential of Social Media based business strategies (not marketing campaigns)

Details & Registration

It would be great if you can join the conference and also help spread the word.
