A 12-Month Plan For Social Media Success In 2013 [Infographic]

It’s hard to believe that we’re closing in on the end of January. This month has really passed very quickly. For anyone seriously engaged in marketing and social media, it’s probably seemed like a real blur given the speed at which social media moves. Have you neglected to put a plan in place?

Nevertheless, there is still plenty of time left for planning and for proper execution of these plans during 2013. Wouldn’t be great to create some real fireworks with your plans or are you going to settle for the same old, same old?


Intuit has done a great job of summarizing how you should really take a look at this year and break it down into more manageable segments on a monthly basis to maximize your potential for success. These 12 monthly steps include:

JANUARY -Assess Your Social Fitness
FEBRUARY– Revisit Your Goals
MARCH– Establish Ways To Measure Success
APRIL– Be A Better Listener
MAY– Communicate In New Ways
JUNE – Develop Your Response To Customers
JULY– Integrate All Your Social Platforms
AUGUST-Integrate Other Inbound Activities
SEPTEMBER– Integrate Team Members
OCTOBER-Don’t Be Discouraged By Challenges
NOVEMBER– Lean From The Year In Review
DECEMBER– Look To The Future

Like any plan, you may find it necessary to skip a few steps or jump around in order to adjust to market conditions or customer needs. This infographic is a keeper and something which should be clearly posted as a reminder of how you might more effectively manage your precious time and realize the greatest results.

What do you think? Does this align with what you’re thinking for 2013? Is there anything that should have been added, removed, or out of place? I’d love to know.
