A sample social media tool used in planning and implementing an online marketing strategy is a Gantt chart. It is a chart that is used to determine the time-frame it will take for your system to reach a certain level of performance. In this case, the graph shows your progress as your chosen social media system continues to grow. When creating one, you need to use the template provided by the resource box at the bottom of this article.
To find the Gantt chart, search Google for a template. There are plenty of samples available for free. Once you have found a Gantt chart you like, download it from the resource box and open it in a word processing program. You need to fill in all the relevant information, such as your name, the name of your social media system, the names of your employees, your estimated start date, your monthly goal for reaching the goal, the number of employees you want to have working in your social media system and the name of the team or department you want to integrate your system into.
Before printing out the template, make sure you’ve filled in every field required in the resource box. You also need to save it as a PDF so that you can open it later. Print out the document and hang it up on your wall. Let people know that you have a Gantt chart, post it on your social network page, post it on your blog, etc. This is how you build your social media system and reach your goals.
