Social Media Strategy Process
ICUC partners with your internal team to understand your business
Effective social strategy begins with understanding your business’s goals and objectives, as well as your current audience and target customer. ICUC works alongside business owners and in-house social media managers to understand the core of your business. The copywriters and community managers working on your account will meet with you to understand the voice of your brand, so that social content can be generated from your unique brand perspective.
Strategically benchmark your business against competitors to determine best content practices
ICUC uses tools and analysts to capture and sort through public social media and online media content to collect sentiment, trending, news items, topics of conversation and general data points surrounding your online presence. We will strategically benchmark your company against your industry competitors to determine best practices for social media channels, style and posting schedules.
Development of an organic content strategy based on your goals
Competitor analysis and additional research enables our agency to produce unique content that will drive your key metrics and performance targets. Once we have an approved schedule, our team develops content categories and quotas from these categories based on your goals. Our industry-specific research informs strategic decisions on which social media platforms your business should focus on.
Social Content Calendar Implementation
Once the strategy is approved, we will begin execution of your new content. We develop social media content specific to your branding and style, and can produce any type of social content you’d like: video, copy, photos, infographics and more.

Social Media Strategy Services FAQs
What are some of the services you provide with social media marketing strategy?
It depends on your specific needs, but ICUC can provide strategy presentations, social audits, competitor and industry analysis, playbooks, editorial and content calendars, and more.
Why can’t my business develop a general social strategy in-house?
Without an expert understanding of what type of social content drives engagement and conversions in your industry, a general social strategy will not be effective. It’s essential to have tailored plans and solutions that target your audience in order to see increased ROI and new leads.
Can’t my in-house social media manager handle social strategy?
It’s nearly impossible for one person to tackle social media. Social strategy requires a team of experts that understand the brand, the medium, and how consumers are engaging online while being available 24/7. That’s a lot to take on without a partner. With our global scale, we can localize and translate your content into 30+ languages worldwide. Moreover, it’s expensive to try and execute in-house. By partnering with us, your costs are reduced and you have a dedicated team providing engagement and strategy content services.
What does a social media agency do?
A global social marketing agency like ICUC provides ongoing social media services that include social media monitoring, social listening, content creation, strategy development and implementation, and more.
Which social media platforms should my business use?
It depends. ICUC will determine which platforms will work best for your company by combining strategic competitor analysis, industry-specific research and information on your customer base from your internal team. We can then build and execute custom social media campaigns that will reach and convert your unique audience into brand loyal customers.
