  • 4. “You cannot manage time, you can only manage yourself inside of time.” Pamela Muldoon, Next Stage Media GroupTips To Better Manage The Social Media ProcessLearn one platform at a time  Go back to your Target Audience and choose the a platform that makes the sense  Develop a plan with this platform; set up your benchmarks & definition of success  Consistently provide content for a minimum of 90 daysCreate a 12-month Topic Calendar (attached)  Map out the high level 12-month topics in your industry  Then go back and map out specific times of the year your business does something special  Think 12-months>90 days>30 daysCreate a Social Media Conversation Calendar  Write out 80% of your status updates 2 weeks to 30 days in advance  The other 20% should be real-time conversation  Take these conversations from your 12-month Topic CalendarUse a 3rd Party Application  Recommendations: HootSuite www.hootsuite.com or Sprout Social www.sproutsocial.com  Aggregate all of your social platforms into one place for easier monitoring  Respond to direct comments, questions, shares, RT’s, etc… within 24 hours  Auto post the 80% from your Social Media Conversation CalendarSet a Timer  Create consistency by setting up the times of day you will be on your social platform Ex: 7:00am 15 minutes 12:00pm 15 minutes 4:30pm 15 minutes  Set a time to ensure you stick with your intention  You may be M-F 9-5pm, but is your target audience? Working the platforms is like any other marketing strategy; it’s not about you, it’s about your target audience.Outsource implementation  When your time budget is more expensive than your money budget you need to consider outsourcing.  Hire a marketing person who understands how social works. Having a marketing professional who understands traditional & digital will better leverage the investment you make.  Don’t base your decision on age or technology use. Do not trust your brand to an intern. Social Media requires the voice of your business with someone savvy in handling consumer interactions.
