SMM is nothing without a plan. Most of the people think that this is a very obvious thing to do, but many fail in doing so. Defining your efforts, goals and measuring your efforts are important. Without a plan it is of no use to start your SMM. Define your objectives, how much your budget is , what all can be done in order to achieve your goal and the resources that will be required in order to reach your objective.

2. Not defining your target audience.


It is crucial to know who your customers are. There are n numbers of people on social media but only some of them will be interested in your product and services. Narrowing your audience will help in concentrating your marketing efforts to those audience only and who are actually interested.

Automation is a big gift for the social media industry. It makes work faster and easier, but completely depending on these automated tools can lead to loose human touch in your social media.

Based on our past actions we can decide our future actions. By proper analytics and measurement we can make our efforts drive in a particular direction. A good analytics tool is must for SMM.

5. Lack of video content: Video content is something that is trending in all social media platforms. All brands, be it some big brand or a simple start up all are focusing on creating more and more of video content. Know what your customers want and what are they interested in and make your content accordingly.

6. Promoting only own content: Every business use social media platforms to promote itself and rise as a brand. But it is not always good to keep promoting you. A customer is also interested in other things apart from just promotion. So you can focus on some informative or funny content along with promotions.

7. More Quantity and less quality:

Social media marketing is just not about flooding your profile with posts and content, no matter what they are about. It’s not at all about how much you post, but it is about what you post.
