Increase your social media marketing productivity
Trying to be more productive during the day but don't know where to start? Below is a sample morning routine for the the week. Check out how I start my day and what platforms I use to get me going.
If your schedule is anything like mine, Mondays come and go so quickly that by the time you take your second sip of coffee, it's already 4:45pm. With 15 minutes to go, you're scrambling to schedule your final Facebook post for the week.
Recently, I have decided to dedicate 3 hours a day strictly to my social media management. This can include everything from checking messages, retweeting & responding, creating content, following content from an editorial calendar, designing graphics, and following or engaging with your fans. What could easily take you the entire day (if you have the attention span of a squirrel like I do) can be condensed into a 3 hour morning routine. But keep in mind, not everyone has an inbox of 50 emails per day. So where "Checking Messages" might take me 30 minutes every morning- may only take you 15. However you spend your time, spend it wisely and productively.
To be a leader in the digital marketing world, it is crucial that you are constantly staying up-to-date on the latest trends. Digital platforms are making changes all the time and if you blink, you may miss an important update or new feature. The best way to stay on top is to subscribe to a few credible marketing blogs. Two of my favorites are Social Media Today and Hubspot. Both provide the latest news in digital marketing and have resources that are helpful in the field. (E-Books, blog templates, editorial calendars) You can also sign up to receive a monthly newsletter from me, The Social Marketing Queen. Just fill out the details below.
