Discuss on Social Media Marketing. Let’s assume Apple is interested in breaking into the fashion industry with a new line of iShirts. They plan on leveraging the existing brand equity that they have earned over the past 25+ years. You will design and deliver a social media marketing plan.
Phase One of the social media marketing plan (SMMP) should include :

In addition to stating the objective of the plan, it should include the background of why the ultimate goal is important.
Breakdown of Apple’s current social media presence – This will help us get a clear look at the organization’s current strategy.
It should detail the social media channels Apple is already using, the type of content they are sharing, and the follower count on each platform.
