Should you start a social media account?

Maintaining social media accounts can be a full-time job. Before you move forward with your plans, ask yourself the following questions to help you determine whether doing so makes sense for you.

  • Why do you want a social account?
  • What goal/objective are you trying to achieve?
  • Who will be responsible for posting to the account?
  • Will you have enough content to post several times every week—even daily—on a consistent basis?
  • Who is your intended audience?
  • How will you attract followers?
  • How will you grow your channel and audience?
  • Who on your staff will engage with your audience on a regular basis, in order to retain your followers?
