  28. 7 Steps to Social <br />Start with a plan, not tactics.  Research and build a Social Media Roadmap involving:  Audience, Objectives, Strategy, Tactics, Tools/Technology and Metrics.<br />“Give to get” – Successful social media marketing programs involve listening and participation. <br />Commit resources & time to be successful or you may very well fail. It’s important to forecast labor hours, who, what, when, how and where with the intention of succeeding, not just experimenting. <br />Be transparent with intentions & your identity or you may alienate the very audiences you’re trying to connect with.  <br />Understand, you do not control the message.  Old habits die hard and there’s a tendency to want to treat social media participation like advertising where the ability to control messaging is the norm. <br />Welcome participation, feedback and co-creation. As comfort levels rise with social web participation, companies will see opportunities to encourage participation with communications, especially with brand evangelists. <br />Metrics should roll up to objectives and objectives should be relevant to the channel.  <br />
