  • You: 1) Stuck in meetings—OK, so maybe you’re not stuck in in-person meetings, but you’re on the phone with clients and most of you have your head down most of the day. <br />
  • 2) You have NO time <br />
  • 3) And, the onslaught of potential social media and digital tools to use with your clients just continues to explode <br />
  • Home page—highlight diff areas <br /> Right hand side: List of categories <br /> Top: Featured posts <br /> Upper right: Preferences <br />
  • Different ways to view your Feedly—Title only layout <br />
  • Magazine layout (my favorite) <br />
  • Index layout—pay atttention to number of shares to see which articles are “trending” (easier way to scan quickly) <br />
  • Pinterest-like layout <br />
  • Full article layout <br />
  • Individual stories then look like this when you click on them in Feedly; multiple bookmarking (Evernote, Instapaper, Pocket) and sharing (G+, Twitter, FB, LinkedIn) options at top. <br />
  • Preferences allow you to set your Feedly just the way you want it; <br />
  • Home page—highlight diff areas <br /> -Customize your tweets from Feedly <br />
  • Tags: use to categorize <br /> Search: another easy way to find content once you’ve bookmarked it <br /> Titles: Easy way to scan (I do this every week with Talking Points) <br />
  • Use the Diigo bookmarklet—allows you to bookmark on the fly with just a couple clicks (click on bookmarklet, share this page and away you go!) <br />
  • Here’s what pops up when you click on “Save”—insert tags <br />
  • Here’s what pops up when you click “Share this page” <br />
  • Background noise: <br /> Have on all day <br /> Check at 8 am, noon and 4 pm <br />
  • Solo PR list <br /> Look to engage with this list 3-4 times per day <br /> Will add to list based on interactions on Solo PR FB group and this event <br />
  • MN Media list <br /> Look to engage this list 1-2 times per day <br /> Keep relationships with local media going this way; great way to keep up on news for other local clients, too <br />
  • Social Media thought leader list <br /> Merely scanning here and looking to bookmark posts—limited engagement <br /> Looking for people who publish (Baer, Bullas, Schaefer), but also those who are plugged in (Monty, Handley) <br />
  • Be sure to check the signals—listens and likes can tell you which stories others are reading <br /> Nice sharing options right in the app <br /> Notice the 2X button in lower right—you can ask the Umano voice to read FASTER! <br /> Subscribe to different categories: Digital Trends, Tech, etc. <br />
  • Pinterest-like layout—easy to read <br /> Curates from all sorts of sites—from The Atlantic to The Verge to the Washington Post <br /> Great way to see what EVERYONE is talking about—not just the digerati <br />
  • Or get it delivered straight to your inbox  <br />
  • I could waste ALL sorts of time on FB each day—in fact, some days I’m not tough enough. I give in. I could talk with my friend Jeff Esposito about Andre the Giant <br />
  • I’m just dying to like this photo from my fellow #SoloPR in MSP Peg Roessler <br />
  • And Lord knows I could talk sports all day with fellow #SoloPR Dan Farkas. <br />
  • But, you need to be hyper-vigilant about the time you spend on FB. And, the time you DO spend on FB should be spend contributing or learning from a business perspective—NOT liking cat photos. Participating in the #SoloPR FB Group for example—a GOOD way to spend time. <br />
  • Participating in my FB advertising FB group—another GOOD place for me to spend time. <br />
  • Scan for posts/articles you can use in your professional lives—easy to spot with links. <br />
  • Reading countless hours of Buzzfeed listicles? NOT PRODUCTIVE! STOP IMMEDIATELY <br />
  • Consider making Paper the primary way you consumer Facebook—at least the feed. More productive with looks at curated news. <br />
  • Zite <br />
  • Zite <br />
  • Here’s what it looks like <br />
  • Configure for Zite—flag to read later with just one simple click <br />
  • Configure for Flipboard—same for Flipboard <br /> Strategy again: Scan and save! <br />
  • The Muck Rack Daily is one of my new faves—even though it doesn’t technically cover social. Great updates in its Today’s Trending section. And I always seem to find an article worth bookmarking in its Watercooler section. And in the Career Status Updates section, you can find the latest comings/goings in the media. <br />
  • Love SocialMedia.org’s email for case studies from the biggest companies in the US—tons of good examples and ideas here. <br />
  • PSFK isn’t necessarily social focused, but it’s keyed in to the latest trends across the creative business. Scott’s enewsletter is a treasure trove of stats, tools and case studies each week. <br />
  • Social Media Examiner—great Friday content aggregator about what happened in social this week (macro-level trends) <br />
