Social media—by now almost every company knows they need to get on board in some way, but many don’t know where to start. Many have started that Facebook page or put out a few tweets only to lose momentum. Others inspire envy in their seemingly effortless success with thousands of followers and comments galore.
To help you be the latter instead of the former, the Symantec Partner Digital Strategy team and I will be offering tips and tricks in a series of posts starting today, complete with guidance and case studies to help you better navigate how to use social media for your business and connect with your customers. We’ll start small and drill down over time.
And we’d love to hear from you—what are your own successes, challenges, what would you like to know more about. We also invite you to join us online on Twitter and Facebook.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll examine social media platforms, the importance of setting objectives, terms to know, how to build a social media strategy and more.
