Social Media Strategy Template

Do you need a social media strategy? Are you frustrated with the 10's of thousands of blogs and articles that tell you what to do but still leave you without a strategy for your company?
I created this template to help marketers produce a complete strategy to present to their boss or team.
This is not a tactical document (just search 'social media' and you can get them for yourself).
This is a living document. Please let me know what is missing or what I got wrong. Thanks and enjoy.
**Be sure to click the Notes on Slide X tab next to the Comments tab below each slide. These are the Presenter Notes that provide instructions and actual dialog that you can use when presenting your strategy. Unfortunately, they do not show properly formatted in SlideShare. When you download the PPT they should look good.
