The key to it all is simply sticking to the basics.
Through thousands of hours of experience with customers, I’ve come to believe in the following statement:
It’s not that social media marketing is difficult, it’s that people and businesses have trouble sticking to their social media posting schedule, which creates gaps and inconsistencies within their social media marketing plan. This leads to a sense of disappointment because the desired results are not being achieved.
I know, it all sounds well and good. But how do you achieve the results you want without knowing what works and having a great plan to stick to.
So to help you all get the results you deserve I’ve put together a simple 3 step plan (see below) that is fool proof and will work for your business 100% of the time.
There is a catch though. (Yes, nothing is push button simple!)
You have to make a plan, and stick to the plan.
And I don’t want to hear any excuses!
The Simple Plan For Your Social Media Success
1. Post consistently: Get into a routine and stick to it. If you decide you’re going to post 10 times per day, then post 10 times per day, if it’s 3 times per day, then make it 3 times per day, but whatever you decide, make a plan and stick to it.
2. Post trending content: Follow the top sites in your specific industry and stay up to date with all the latest and greatest news, tips, tricks, and trends. People love hot off the press insider information, so be prepared to give it to them.
3. Post at the right time: Learn about your audience: in what part of the world are most of them located, at what time do your posts get the most immediate reshares or likes… this is important information, find out, monitor your posts, and once you find your hot spot, stick with it.

Stay True to the Simple Plan
These 3 steps are all centered around the basics of social media marketing and will lead you down the path to success – if you stick to them.
Don’t try to get too fancy. Even if you come up with some amazing ideas to add to this one. Just follow the simple path we have layed out for you.
If you do just stick to the basics, you’ll find the social media marketing results that you had been hoping for.
But Brandon, I Don’t Have Time!
Time is an issue we all have. And you are right to focus on your business. It needs you! (and you have probably discovered there are only 24 hours in each day)
But you can’t continue to ignore social media.
It is a huge source of traffic and leads for your business, and the longer you wait to get on board, the further ahead your competition will be.
They might be stealing your customers right now on Twitter!
