Do You Have Enough Time for Social Media?

Feeling a little overwhelmed this holiday season? Between work, family, avoiding sick co-workers and shopping for gifts, you’ll be glad to know that you can also effectively schedule in some time for social media. Great. More stuff to add to your list!

Always start with an objective in mind. Don’t have one? Here’s a list for some helpful ideas. These are some things that you’ll realistically be able to accomplish if you put in the time.

Get rid of distractions. It’s easy to get lost on social media sites as the links lead you to more interesting places. But don’t lose sight of your goal. If your priority is to Tweet or date on a daily basis, you can easily make that happen. Set aside a certain amount of time for social media so you aren’t constantly checking throughout the day. Unless you’re 50 Cent, there’s no real point in checking/updating your Twitter account every 5 minutes. (And even then, it’s highly questionable!)

Use the right tools. I find SocialOomph and Hootsuite very helpful for scheduling purposes. I started using Crowdbooster and it gives some helpful suggestions. Check it out below:
