Whether you’re just getting started or have been active on sites like Facebook and Twitter, but haven’t had much success, follow our social media marketing tips to propel you to the next level, first up, Create a Plan for Each Social Media Channel:

Your social media plan should consist of mini-plans for each social media channel you expect to be active on. You’ll have a plan for your Twitter, Facebook and so forth.
