Social networking posts are the perfect way to build trust with your market and advertise your business. These types of posts are free to do which makes it even better yet, but the problem occurs when you find you’re spending too much time on these social networking sites and not enough time working your business.
If you’re finding you spend way too much time using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, you need to find a way to manage your time better. This is a difficult task to manage as you may feel this is the only way to have contact with other adults, but you need to make it happen or you’re going to find your business will suffer.
There are several ways to spend less time on these social networking sites, but still get your point across and grow your business. One way is to use a timer and control your time on these sites. You must stick to the timer or it won’t work. To make the most of your time, you need to write posts for your business ahead of time so you can post them easily and quickly. This will help you to spend the rest of the time communicating with your followers.
Another option is to write out your posts for both Twitter and Facebook and schedule them using a platform such as Hootsuite or TweetDeck. This will give you the ability to use all of your time for communicating with others and not have to worry about remembering to post the others, and they’ll happen throughout the day and not all at once.
One last option is to have your Virtual Assistant handle this task for you. She can write your posts, use your scheduling platform and also work your profiles by communicating with your followers. This will allow you the time you need to grow your business, and you won’t feel overwhelmed if you don’t have time to make it on to talk to your followers during the day. Yet, you can spend your time on social media doing the “in-person” networking only while your VA does the rest.
When you choose one of these options, you’re sure to make the most of social networking. You’ll have the posts you need and be able to grow your business with those posts and your hard work. When you see the advantage of using one of these options, you’ll continue to make it happen each day to see the growth each day.
