I personally find value in the analytics deck as I need most help with this. 

I agree, analytics and reports is the most helpful in determining strategy, analyzing our followers, and creating content and timing that speaks to those.

I think the discussion prompt “How can we evolve our content strategy to support buyers at every stage of their journey?” is hugely important to take a step back and think about the strategic plan instead of getting stuck in the daily/weekly data.

The discussion prompts combined with the beautifully represented statistics are very valuable time savers in preparing to present to administration and staff.  This is a great template to get started.  Thank you for putting this together.

Discussion 1, “Are we striking the right balance between content creation and audience engagement,” is personally helpful for me as a reminder to my team to not focus on simply creating content. They need to create content that makes people want to engage with us and create brand relationships.


How can we evolve our content strategy to support buyers at every stage of their journey?” Is one that we’re working on right now.  Of course, we’ve got the buyers journey from awareness, consideration, conversion, loyalty, etc.  We sell fruit trees and berry plants online (the fact that this community is call the the Arboretum isn’t lost on us).  Every gardener is on their own journey from complete “brown thumb” novice to lifelong plant geek.  So each customer’s journey may be very different depending on where they are at in the buyers journey with us vs. their gardening knowledge/experience journey.  Making sure our strategies cover all the overlaps between these two is a challenge that we need to constantly keep in mind.
