Drawing from such process methodologies as Lean and the Capability Maturity Model, Dragon helps you develop a social media process that is quantifiable, repeatable—and improvable. His process is based on these basic steps:

  • Focus on desirable outcomes: Vision, Goals, Objectives, and Metrics
  • Pinpoint the very smallest segments of your customers
  • Determine the communities to which these microsegments belong
  • Identify the influencers of those communities
  • Create an action plan for your project
  • Measure and constantly improve your efforts

The beauty of Dragon’s method is its core flexibility. New social media platforms are guaranteed to pop up in the near future. Any strategy based on the methods in this book can be adapted to take full advantage of them.

The age of blind trial and error for social media marketers is over. Social Marketology provides the means to implement an effective campaign that is testable, controllable, and fully integrated within broader campaigns and goals.
