Preparing Social Media for 2017

We are always looking months out for preparing. We are typically scheduled out 4, 6, even 8 weeks out for our clients. The reason for this is that we want to make certain we are thinking of holidays, promotion ideas, blog ideas, social media ideas, and the individual items that are happening in the weeks ahead (e.g. New Year's Day, Trivia Day, etc.). Since content creation is a core part of what we provide to our clients with not only unique and high-quality content but aggregated content that showcases a client's unique traits we need to be thinking ahead rather than after the fact. Therefore, we are already planning for 2017. To give you an idea of what we look at we're going to look at the major items we wrote down for January 2017.

As we cover each item you'll see that many of the items will pertain to multiple months. To find ideas for each category we suggest doing a Google or Bing search to find holidays for the country you are targeting (you do target international, differently right?)

Promotion Ideas

  • Discount for fitness/recreation services – It is a new year so it's time for a new you
  • Participate in a blood drive, or discount to customers who donated blood which will bring more people into your location
  • Martin Luther King Day of service (16th)

Blog Ideas

  • Weight management tips
  • Recap your holiday fundraiser
  • New Year's Resolution centered on your customers or one they can participate in
  • Health & fitness tips around getting back in shape
  • Ways of eating healthier
  • What your customers can look forward to this year
  • Industry outlook/prediction
  • Pie chart blog post (23rd)

Social Media Ideas

  • New Year resolution campaign with a custom hashtag
  • Trivia contest related to your business or industry, winner gets a discount (4th)
  • Run a Dress Up Your Pet Instagram giveaway
  • Compliment and tag loyal customers in a photo

Week and Day Observance Days

  • 1 – New Year's Day
  • 16 – Martin Luther King Day
  • 24 – Belly Laugh Day

Conclusion

This is all you need to get started. You are basically two months out and by the time you finish this for the entire year you will be a month out and start going into greater detail. Remember that you are not looking for the deep two or three unique posts that you create content, images or video for your social media.

If you want this level of dedication, commitment to success, customized content for you, and a team that is dedicated to working with you (we don't read minds – so this is a two-way communication street) then JM2 Webdesigners is a good fit for you. If you expect us to just run the show and you have little to no input on running your business, don't have plans to define success, or do not want to work toward your companies growth then we are not the company to work with.

We define what success is from day one for our social media clients. We do monthly recaps (or your defined period) with you on your social media and where we see places of improvement. No how well you are performing we can always find ways to improve the processes.

If you want to grow and work together as a team give us a call at 855-456-2669, email at sales@jm2marketing.com, or through our online contact form here.

CEO / Code Ninja
 Send an email

John Marx

John has been an entrepreneur and pusher of all things “normal”. He was brought up where a handshake is as good as any word and even more important than any legal speak. John believes in giving back and giving people more than they expect. This is the foundation and basis of JM2 Webdesigners & Marketing. The prices will shock you, the amount you get will shock you even more, and the skills his entire team brings will completely amaze. He has built a team of experts that are talented, young, and efficient. Each one has the characteristics of the company in wanting to see a small business grow and each one goes above, and beyond which makes John beyond proud of them.

So why is John considered the “Code Ninja”. It’s isn’t because people fear ninja’s (they should). They will fight until their last breath defending, achieving the mission, and helping (in this case small businesses). John believes in very surgical strikes to help a business grow using agile methods that change rapidly, in ways people don’t expect, and with a relentless passion to achieve greatness.
