Managing social media profiles can be time-consuming. When you run a business, there are many ways to market your brand. Social media though is one of the best. So, while it may take energy, keeping up these profiles is well worth the effort.
But handling your social media doesn\’t need to be difficult. And it shouldn\’t take you hours a day to do. There are many ways to streamline this task saving you time and energy so you can focus on what matters most â€“ your business.
Here are four ways you can spend less time managing your social media starting today:
- Create a Monthly Calendar â€“ Planning out your monthly activities is a great way to make the process of managing social media easier. It provides you a road map to turn to everyday rather than having to decide what to tackle. Careful planning also helps you take full advantage of your profiles each and every month.
- Reduce Your Number of Profiles â€“ Too much of a good thing is badâ€¦. especially when it comes to time management and your social media profiles. If you are trying to manage 4-5 profiles and run your business, you are taking on too much. Limit your number of social media platforms to 2-3 and you\’ll enjoy a more lightened load.
- Enlist a Pro for Help â€“ Few things reduce your time spent marketing your brand more than enlisting the help of a professional marketing firm. They can manage your social media efforts making sure your profiles remain active and engaging. A professional is also knowledgeable on the latest marketing strategies so your brand is always ahead of the trends.
- Develop a Branding Template â€“ There is nothing easy about deciding how you want to interact on social media. Branding templates are an easy way to automate your postings. This may include a certain type of Facebook post on a certain day of the week, think TBT. Or it could be ensuring your post images are similar in look and design.
