Social Media Strategy Templates
Social Marketology Worksheets
DragonSearch has pioneered the development of a process framework for social media marketing. This framework is the basis for the book Social Marketology , now used in college courses around the world and taught by our team of dragons in our social media strategy workshops .
This framework is built on a “whole system” approach, prompting the strategist to understand the organization, the market, and customers. It also looks at approaches to social media in a larger context with an understanding that not all social media efforts are the same: there are several different overall approaches that can be taken alone or in a mix with other approaches.
Using these worksheets and templates while creating your social media strategy will help you develop a stronger, more effective strategy that can be better communicated to an organization’s leadership. For a deeper understanding of their use, refer to Social Marketology, join us at one of the many workshops we give or invite us to give a customized workshop in your own organization.

Every strategy begins here.
- Audience Segmentation Template – traditionally, marketing segmentation was constrained by the smallest feasible audience that could be targeted by any particular marketing action. In social media, the size has become granular. By brainstorming these “micro-segments,” the social media practitioner or team can identify whole new communities and influencers to engage.
- The Big Five Approaches to Social Media Template – Social Media, as an activity, is often seen as one big amorphous thing.
