How To Use Your Planning Talents To Save Time Online
Do you ever feel overwhelmed trying to keep up with social media? Just remember, that you were born to be a planner. You’re known to set a goal, analyze the details and deliver without a fault. So here are a few tips on how you can use your awesome planner qualities to reduce your time online and still be a walking social media powerhouse.
Organize is your middle name
Clarity is everything to both your business and on social media. Make sure to pick your social media favorites where your clients hang out the most and concentrate all your efforts there. Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin should be among your top three but feel free to venture to new pastures like Instagram and Pinterest which are both great for wedding professionals. Once you figure out the platforms that work best for you, take time to get familiar with the each of them and stay updated by downloading their mobile app.
Tip: Turn off the social media notifications on your phone as they will only distract you. Instead, set time apart during your day to solely focus on social media.
Flexible like a pretzel
You constantly juggle multiple deadlines but don’t you wish you had eyes in the back of your head? Well with a cool app like TweetDeck it’s almost like you do. This app lets you see what goes on across social media platforms like Facebook, Linkedin and of course Twitter. It’s super user friendly and gives you a clear view on what clients are saying.
Tip: Feel free to respond to your clients on social media. It makes them feel important and lets future clients know you care about their opinion. It is social media after all so ask your followers questions to get them engaged.
Be creative online
You love connecting to your clients during meetings but how can you promote yourself to a whole audience? It is as easy as creating a unique hashtag that reflects what you’re all about. A hashtag is the pound sign (#) followed by a word or phrase, for example #wedding #busybee #plannerlife. By creating your signature hashtag you can make your tweets easier to find.
Tip: Remember it’s quality not quantity. Post a few good tweets or pictures with your hashtag rather than annoying your followers by bombarding them with multiple posts.
Of course this is just scratching the surface of things you can do to streamline and simplify your social media management. I can show you exactly how to schedule all of your posts in just 30 minutes per week – click here to get my free report so you can start doing the same!
