If “selling” is your main goal for social media, it’s time to make a change. I can think of at least 12 different social media goals you could choose from and not a single one of them is “sales”. I maintain if you work on some of these other goals, the sales will follow. But if you begin with a goal of sales, these other things will not naturally fall into place. If your goal on social media is to be the expert in your field/community/industry/company, then advertising you are the expert just won’t cut it. You have to prove you are the expert and you’ll need a content strategy to support that goal.
