What Is Social Media Canvas?
Social Media Canvas is a one-page social media plan. This one-page canvas gives "main street" businesses a simple way to plan out an overarching social media stratgy without having to know the ins and outs of social media marketing.
For larger businesses the Social Media Canvas helps ground conversations about social media marketing, acting as a principles document to frame the conversation.
Why Use Social Media Canvas
Why Create A Social Media Plan?
Social media is a complex ecosystem. Having a written plan of action for social media enables organisations to grow and connect with their audience so that they can take action.
A plan produces consistency, cohesiveness, and scalability while avoiding conflicting messaging, overuse, and out-of-tone posts.
Why Use The Social Media Canvas?
Social Media Canvas is the a good balance of complexity and simplicity, leading to a social media plan that takes 20% of the work and leads to 80% of the results.
While the Canvas is designed specifically for "main street" businesses it has been found to help larger organisations start and ground a more intricate conversation about social media.
Why Does Social Media Canvas Work?
All of the major aspects of social media marketing are addressed within the Social Media Canvas in a flow that builds on itself.
