Block out the time that you intend to use for social media; a lot of time can be wasted on this method of communication if you are not careful. We all know people who compulsively troll Facebook or Twitter. There are also those that spend hours on YouTube. Social media is a great place to market your business but it can also be a huge drain on your time. It is important to schedule the time you spend on these activities. For instance, blocking 15 minutes twice a day to review friends post and respond. Just like with email, if you are constantly checking it then you are wasting precious time. Schedule it and you will spend less time on it.
Want to save time but be consistent with your posts? We recommend using Hootsuite. You can literally set up your posts for months at a time; and set them to go to multiple social media streams.
