The new report comes out as social media usage rises to 90% of the U.S. population — further proof of such channels’ ubiquity. Tessa Ashford, the report’s author and marketing director at IdeaPros, says that posting on online networking sites allows entrepreneurs to get preliminary feedback which can help them improve not just their product but their chances for success.

Titled “How To Do Pre-Launch Social Media”, the new report places a heavy emphasis on market research, which can be used to guide a startup’s social strategy and content development. Moreover, it ensures that a company has a strong message that compels early adopters to try its product.
Ashford writes, “What you post on social media shapes what people think of your venture. That’s why it’s crucial to research who your target market is so you can tailor your posts to address their needs or interests.”
WATCHING BEFORE POSTING
While many entrepreneurs prioritize populating their social feeds during the pre-launch phase, Ashford says it is better to observe first. Indeed, the report tackles the Study, Engage, Educate (S.E.E.) method, which entails analyzing how target audiences behave on social media before engaging with them.
ESTABLISHING SOCIAL PRESENCE
Another important step discussed in the guide is claiming social media handles for platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, which helps founders verify if similarly named companies already own these handles. The report likewise offers guidance on how to quickly create simple but impactful visual assets such as logos and display photos.
USING QUESTIONS AS INSPIRATION
Lastly, the guide tackles how to use online forums to better understand consumers’ questions and how to use them as inspiration for social content. It offers a quick overview of the most common websites that people use to post their questions about a variety of topics.
