Module purpose

Social media are powerful in reaching, engaging and influencing audiences across the customer lifecycle.

Within the RACE planning framework, social media is placed under the Engage section since it excels as a customer communications tool and through the social amplification effect which can also encourage advocacy to new potential customers.

This module focuses on how to use social media for customer and campaign communications.

Our editorial calendar Excel template features several ways to ideate or think through the types of content you are looking to share against your goals.

We have a separate Social media marketing Learning Path which has more depth on how to Plan, Manage and Optimize social media.
