It should go without saying. Social media is all about the people, and yet if your social media strategy is caught up in trying to go viral or become the next Wendy’s, you might not get the results you hope for.
In this episode, we spoke with Mariya Spektor, who is the Director of Content for Social Media at Social Chain. We chat about the importance of building a community and how there’s often a disconnect for brands who are going about social the wrong way.
For Mariya, she sees a lot of brands practicing “savage social” (think Wendy’s and Ryanair) when it doesn’t match their brand tone. Instead, Mariya shares some tips on building a strategy that puts people first.
We also discuss different platforms and whether Threads is the next Twitter rival, how some brands are monetizing TikTok content, and why there’s a compromise to be made between speed and creativity.
