Dos-and-Donts-of-Social-Media-for-SMEs_websmallDO plan ahead. Creating a monthly calendar of any special days or content you want to distribute can help to keep your social channels timely and fresh.

DON’T forget to monitor. You should be monitoring your channels daily for comments, compliments and complaints so that you can respond to them effectively.

DO reshare content. Social media is all about community, so reshare and engage with the content of others that is relevant to your audience.

DON’T plagiarize content. Resharing is one thing, copying content and branding it as your own is another. Always give credit where credit is due.
