Social Media AuditSocial 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 to be spent elsewhere. Social media profiles can quickly fall into disrepair if left alone / outdated. An in-depth audit, with reporting and update suggestions, can help get things back on track.

A key part of 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 by 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 of where you are performing well and what areas need improvement.

Are you on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (among others) all day, everyday posting, linking, and sharing till your mouse runs out of batteries?

On the flip side, you may be over-posting your social media profiles, which leads to unfollows and loss of 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.
