All parts of the company are affected by social media and it should be like air (all around) instead of water (in specific areas where you have get it). So you must create cross functional teams to conceive and also operate the strategy.

Choose your success metrics
Choose the important measures which you will utilise to examine the effectiveness of your social media strategy. You must choose the manner you in which will surpass the engagement and ‘likes’. Know the way of measuring your ROI.
Know with whom you will interact on social media. Understand the psychographic and demographic characteristics of your prospective and your current customers. Know the impact it will have on your social media initiatives.
Know your specialty
It is of no consequence what you sell, if your product benefits and features are inadequate to create a passion. Know how to appeal to the heart of your target audience, and not only the head.
Social media force all companies to actively seek attention – to the cost of family and friends. Your company must to some extent act like a human being. Formulate the plan and implement it.
Know first why you are active in social media. If you know that, it will be possible for you to measure the success of your social media strategy. Your plan must be distinct and widely scattered over a number of social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Your social media campaign should stand out from your competitors. Your plan must be comprehensive.
