How to Handle Social Media Marketing in Less Than 1 Hour Per Day
In internet marketing, social media marketing and search engine marketing are crucial especially if one needs to remain at the top of search engine ranks. The reason behind this is because social sites have the highest amounts of traffic, and generate more leads than any other sites on the web. However, for you to benefit from this you need to be a frequent updater in these social sites for viewers to see content and follow, otherwise a dormant account doesn’t generate much.
In the event of trying to capture audience and traffic from social sites, many of them have cropped up this making it harder for most marketers to handle the pressure. There are more than 20 social media sites, and this means one has to spend hours trying to update in each of them. Nevertheless there is a faster way of doing this without the need of a robot.
Planning and strategy is the key to keep all these sites active on a daily basis. If you use six social media sites, you can then update and keep each one of them active in less than 30 minutes overall. Although this might sound crazy, it is very possible. However, you will need to come up with a time schedule on when to handle all these updates, and at what intervals.
The six main social media sites today are:
5. Google plus
All these are great sites for milking traffic towards a site, and can be done in minutes.
Managing Your Time
The only time consuming thing with social media marketing is creating accounts for all these accounts. However, if you have already created accounts, everything should be swift. First, start with Facebook and allocate a maximum of 4 minutes on it. With the four minutes, you can post status updates on upcoming events or something like that, like a few more pages related to what you do, reply to messages and even comment on other people’s notifications. This is enough activity to keep your account active for another 24 hours.
Twitter needs a little more time than Facebook; you can give it 8 minutes. First, you will need to respond to tweets that have come your way, then tweet your own updates. The most important part with twitter is following, you can spend some time searching for other people who offer similar services as your website, and re-tweet and share their content. This will help build a great mutual relationship with the company’s. Pinterest is third on the list. Depending with the speed in your internet connection, it can take about 6 minutes to pin new content, and also follow other people’s pins. There are times you will find people have followed your pins, appreciating them is not a bad idea too.
Linked in and Google plus work in a similar way, and should work just fine. In LinkedIn, you should promote and advertise new events that are up-coming from your company, as well as ask relevant questions just to keep the account active. Google plus is all about sharing content with people within your circles, and shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to clear the job. You can spend the rest of the minutes with Instagram, posting pictures from behind the scenes and also using amazing quotes to inspire your followers.
As long as you can stick to a schedule and nothing diverts your attention, you can do just fine with social media marketing and have fun.
