The Social Media and Content Excellence Audit
Welcome to the start of a transformative journey
The Social Media and Content Excellence Audit – a meticulous review designed to elevate your social media activity and drive results for your organisation.
To deliver a robust and highly detailed audit, I am collaborating with Social Media Marketing Consultant, Trainer and Author, Luan Wise.
Together we will bring a wealth of expertise to guide you through a comprehensive assessment of your current approach and understanding of future trends.
What is a Social Media and Content Excellence Audit?
Our audit dives deep into your current use of social media and content practices. From platform analysis to online safety, we evaluate every element of your social media presence and the content you’re sharing, both behind the scenes within your organisation, and from the perspective of your target audience.
The audit isn’t just about what you’re doing now; it’s about uncovering the potential for what you could achieve in the future through data-driven insights.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Following a discovery call, we will confirm the cost of your Social Media and Content Excellence Audit based on your specific requirements and the number of social media platforms to be reviewed.
How many platforms are included in the audit?
The Social Media and Content Excellence Audit includes your activity on up to three social media platforms; LinkedIn, X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, Instagram, Threads, TikTok and/or YouTube. Further platforms can be audited, for an additional cost.
Do you audit LinkedIn Company Pages or Individual Profiles?
The Social Media and Content Excellence Audit includes an audit of your LinkedIn Company Page. Individual profiles can be reviewed at an additional cost.
What does the audit process involve?
The process includes a detailed analysis of your current social media and content practices, audience engagement, and performance metrics. Following the confirmation of your audit requirements we will require access to your social media accounts (usernames and passwords), plus access to social media management tools and Google Analytics.
How long does the audit take?
It takes 6.5 days to conduct a Social Media and Content Excellence Audit. However, the information should have time to filter in our minds and we like to allow time for reflection and discussion before we make our recommendations. We therefore recommend allowing a minimum of 3 weeks for the audit from start to presentation. We will discuss potential start dates during the discovery call, and suggest scheduling an interim call to discuss any questions that might arise during the data collection stage.
How will the audit be presented?
The findings of the audit will be presented in a document, via an online meeting (up to 2 hours). The session can be recorded for internal use. You decide on the most relevant attendees at this meeting; just let us know who will be in the room!
What happens if we’re not currently active on a social media platform, for example, TikTok?
As we review your existing social media presence, we will take into consideration opportunities for the use of additional social media platforms. We may also recommend that you stop using some existing social media platforms. This will be driven by an understanding of your objectives and target audiences.
Is the audit a one-time service, or can it be ongoing?
The audit is a one-time report, but we offer ongoing consultation and training to implement the recommendations if required. We would recommend a yearly review, and offer clients a discount for annual audits.
Who is carrying out the audit?
The audit is carried out collaboratively by Luan Wise and Roger Jones.
