She encourages listeners to clearly define their objectives, whether it’s increasing sales, booking more gigs, or expanding brand reach. Emma suggests asking yourself specific questions such as the desired timeline for ROI, if monetization is a goal, and understanding the primary purpose behind the account’s creation. This clarity in goals helps in tailoring strategies that are directly aligned with the business’s aspirations and market demands.

Planning Your Budget with Potential Financial Investments for Social Media Success

Emma stresses the importance of understanding the unique demands of different platforms and tailoring content accordingly to maximize engagement and relevance.
