‘Your Customers Are Listening in Social Media. And So Are Search Engines  – Li Evans

 

But as a small to medium business owner or entrepreneur juggling a busy schedule, time is extremely hard to come by. Yet it is proven that the more you create the more you will generate. So how do you utilise your time in order to tap into the biggest platforms to voice and market your efforts? Here are a few ways to strip everything back and organise your time better to allow you to create more.

Plan and conquer

Don’t just post on the fly, take the time to map out your exact posts, figure out what content you will create and what purpose this serves your customer and your ultimate objectives. Spend a few hours to create all of your content for the following month.

Too often, feeling intimidated becomes our excuse not to be awesome. – Scott Stratten

Make apps work for you

There are so many free and paid apps that will do a lot of your work for you, from scheduling to mapping out the look of your feed and posting directly to your social. Don’t just rely on apps to help you make your content look amazing, but use it as part of your strategy.

 

Throwback

If you are constantly looking for content to create but don’t have the time? re-use your content but spin it in a different way.

Go where your audience is

Free up more time by not spreading yourself too thinly across all social media platforms. Go only where your audience is and concentrate on these. Quality over quantity. But remember to create content to drive your audience back to your own space, if social sites went down tomorrow, you’d still want to be able to market to your audience.

 

Content builds relationships. Relationships are built on trust. Trust drives revenue. – Andrew Davis
