The acronym POST stands for:

People

What kind of clients and prospects do you have? How do they behave online? For determining your target group, there is a reference to the Social Technographics Profile.

Objectives

What are your goals? Are you more interested in listening in order to gain insights? Or do you want to enable your customers to generate more awareness?

Strategy

How do you change your relationship with customers? What do you want to get out of these relationships? Which direction do you want to take and what is the underlying proposition?

Technologies

What applications should you use? How much time should this take? This step reflects the choices you make in the first three steps.

These four elements are very important in developing a Social Media strategy.
