Any strategy not aligned to a goal is like using full force on a hammer without hitting the nail. The effectiveness of a social media content strategy can only be measured by determining whether or not it takes you closer to your intended goal. No matter how revolutionary your content strategies are, they remain useless if they’re not tied to specific goals. Social media campaign goals mold the foundations of your strategy and justify the steps you will undertake along the way.
