  9. 9. Tying Social Media Content into Strategy | ©2013 re:group, inc. | 11.22.2013 | #SMW4 HOW DID WE DO IT? 1. We decided to make a commitment to Pet Supplies Plus social media (that’s not always a breeze). 2. We asked the question: How do we make social media valuable for Pet Supplies Plus? 3. First, we had to ask: “What does “valuable” mean for PSP?” That led us to rehash our business goals. 4. We determined that it’s great that we want to sell more, but we had to ask ourselves, “How does that translate into social media since we don’t have e- commerce?” 5. Well, what types of behaviors indicate likelihood to buy? 6. Establishing neighbor trust is in there, probably providing product education, too. 7. Okay, great. How will we do that? Content categories surrounding our objectives are a good idea. 8. How will we measure the success of this content? In lieu of e-commerce or direct response, we’ve got to rely on the metrics we have at our fingertips on our social platforms. 9
